I’m going to try to keep this post civil but I’m pretty upset by this article in the Daily Mail.
“Doctors left a premature baby to die because he was born two days too early, his devastated mother claimed yesterday.”
Why would they do that?
“They ignored her pleas and allegedly told her they were following national guidelines that babies born before 22 weeks should not be given medical treatment. “
That can’t be true.
“In fact, the medical guidelines for Health Service hospitals state that babies should not be given intensive care if they are born at less than 23 weeks.”
Well, many preemies are unhealthy, right? Maybe this one was, too.
“She said he was breathing unaided, had a strong heartbeat and was even moving his arms and legs, but medics refused to admit him to a special care baby unit.”
Wow, that must have been awful for the mother.
“Miss Capewell…has had five miscarriages”
That poor woman.
“I kept asking for the doctors but the midwife said, ‘They won’t come and help, sweetie. Make the best of the time you have with him’.
She cuddled her child and took precious photos of him, but he died in her arms less than two hours after his birth.”
Well, I tried.
This is the direction we are going in the US. We already elected a President who is content to let little babies, who were supposed to be murdered but somehow survived, die alone in a closet. We’ve already let the liberals decide that murdering babies is legal. No, not just legal, A RIGHT.
Yes, Mr. Obama, the US spends more money per capita on health care than any other nation. That’s because we’re willing to spend the money if it means a chance, even a small chance, for some little guy to keep living or for some older woman to have a few more months to spend with her loved ones. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it our choice? Yes, until you get the government involved.
You claim there won’t be death panels yet you promote these kinds of guidelines. You claim we’ll still have our same insurance policies, yet your legislation would necessarily make those policies nearly unrecognizable. You claim you’ll cut costs and improve the system but don’t have the bill go into effect until 2013…after the 2012 election.
Obama, you are another worthless politician who acts in his own best interests to the detriment of the American people.
How anybody can claim this isn’t treason is beyond me.
Great work, 52%.
