The ghouls of nationalized health care..

This is so cruel. And similar cases will multiply as federal administrators take over every last health care decision for every last person in these United States. They will calculate the cost of submission to the Sixth Commandment and find murder quicker and cheaper. And Christian fathers will be helpless to protect their wives and children.

Mark my words.

>>> And Christian fathers will be helpless

In times of old our fathers resisted the evil and cried out to God for deliverance. Let us do the same. This is not a time for weak knees, but for resolve, work, and faith.

We're already there. Dear Leader Obama and his merry band of evil commies will just continue to accelerate the process. Our healthcare system is already broken. In any given year, doctors are anywhere from the 6th to the 2nd leading cause of death in the U.S.

Affirmative action within the health care system is killing hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. I had no idea it was this bad:

It occurs to me that in many corners of the medical world "over-treatment" is the name of the game for making ends meet financially. For example, a hospital would encourage a doctor to prescribe a CT scan (which is very expensive, and thus has a larger profit margin), when a typical old run-of-the-mill X-ray would do the job just fine. The hospital that runs more CT scans brings in more money, even though the patient would have been served just as well by a cheaper traditional X-ray.

To know that such waste is routine, commonplace, and business-as-usual all over the medical world, and everyone knows it; and then to read the hypocrisy of a hospital saying "We refuse to perform a tracheotomy and gastrostomy on this girl, because it would be wasteful of valuable medical resources." It makes me sick! Paramedics are trained to perform emergency tracheostomies, and an experienced paramedic can do a good one in a minute or two. It's not some herculean undertaking that the hospital is refusing to do; they're refusing to perform two very routine surgeries (although, tonsillectomies are supposed to be routine surgeries, too...). In fighting for the legal permission to kill this little girl, the hospital has undoubtedly already squandered far more of the precious resources they claim to be protecting than it would have cost for them to simply provide the treatment her family requested, and allow her to be transferred.

If I were the "hospital" I would be terrified of the wrath of Almighty God and the prospect of judgment in eternal Hell Fire. Hopefully they will repent and avoid this terrible fate.
