The UK apparently does not work to save preemies that weigh under a pound, as they are not deemed "viable". This baby was given treatment,
mistakenly because scissors were left on the scale when she was weighed. It was discovered later, but she was already being taken care of. She is now
home with her parents, and reportedly doing well.
She was born with a twin sister, who died a few weeks after birth... One must wonder if it was a result of her not being "viable", and thus not
receiving any care.
This is what happens when government decides who gets care and who doesn't. Coming to a US state near you soon. Enjoy all you voted for in 2008 and
Currently insurance companies make decisions whether you are allowed to get care or not. It is not exclusive to government.
Yes as hard as it is to believe that are retarded un ethical people in the private sector.... i know it is mind shattering.
I do not disagree that government being invovled in healthcare will be a bad thing but the current system has the same type of problems as well.
Except people are ready to try something different. which one is better or worse is debatable. I have known people who end up dieing because no
one will insure them or they are denied further care...under the current system.
The grass is always greener on the other side. as long as people can exploit other people for profit whether it be in the hands of government or the
private sector it will always continue to happen that some fall victim to their bad decisions based on greed.
Also all your post does is exploit peoples love of children to grind your political axe. YOu are no different than those who use healthcare as a tool
for their agenda.
should the outrage be any different if this happened in the private sector??
