More Healthcare Links

4Have you signed the "Free Our Health Care Now" petition?

=US Gov to Tell the Elderly About Starvation & Dehydration Options?
The message is clear: government can save money by encouraging old people to die a little sooner than they otherwise would. Instead of being regarded with reverence, and cherished, human life is subject in this view to a utilitarian cost-benefit calculus and can be sacrificed to serve fiscal policy and the sacred imperative of trimming a budget.
Can you imagine? "Excuse me, but would you mind dying now?"

=Health Reform’s Hidden Victims
Namely, the old and the young.

"The president assures us that he will cut health-care spending... by adding $1 trillion to health-care spending."

=Can the US President save the patient?
This British author says the US voter is the problem: "In the UK, people accept that just because a procedure is available somewhere doesn't mean you can have it."

Of course, in the UK, people believe they should bow to certain people. Is their stratified society the reason why such random inequality is acceptable?
