Skip to comments.Illegal immigrant gets kidney

As an illegal immigrant, Jorge Mariscal waited eight years for a kidney transplant he feared would never come.
His persistence paid off Thursday when he underwent the procedure at Loyola University Medical Center.
After years of uncertainties, Mariscal said he's excited about his future and grateful for the help he received. But he remains frustrated with a health care system that he worries might leave out an untold number of illegal immigrants in need of lifesaving treatments. "Why can't we be treated the same?" he asked while sitting in his hospital room. "Health care should be a human right, not a privilege. At least give us the chance to fight for our lives with dignity."

At least give us the right to take advantage of you Americans, legally - with 'dignity'.
At least give us the right to rob, rape, and murder Americans, with 'dignity'.
At least give us the right to infect the US Population with our heretofore thought extinct diseases, with 'dignity'.
At least give us the right to take an organ badly needed by an American so that we can get it installed for free, with 'dignity'.
He's going to make an outstanding commie lib, Obamazombie. If health care is a"human right", why the hell didn't he have the mexican government give him his kidney? Don't they have "human rights" in Mexico? Just askin'. This guy is an ass.
Isn’t that special? Now taxpayers can foot the bills for the rest of his life—ongoing tests and medications. Too bad a US citizen won’t get that same chance.
>>”Health care should be a human right, not a privilege.”
Okay, I’m going to post the first thought that came to my mind when I read this article. I wonder what American died because he or she was knocked off the list for the illegal? Is that unChristian of me? I know one man who has been on the kidney list for close to eight years. He pays his taxes, volunteers at a local fire department (office work but volunteers) and is a kind man. No one is going to tell me that this particular organ didn’t match up with an American on the waiting list.
Yes. Exercise your “right” elsewhere where it doesn’t force us to labor harder to pay or your “rights”. Damn even the liberal’s self entitlement ideology has crept into the illegals minds. I think people nowadays get “right” confused with “privilege” because of spoiled culture mindset that we live in today. You wouldn’t have heard this crap hardly, if at all, prior to 60 years ago
Speaking as someone who has had family members needing transplants, bone marrow in one case, kidneys in the other this makes me angry. Considering that my guy, who has only broken the occasional traffic law, is still waiting and we have marines in mexico being tied to beds in prison for less than this makes me want to say screw it deport them all, and bomb that fetid swamp they came from into oblivion.
Since "Being Born" isn't a human right in the US - carrying it further - everything else that follows isn't either...ØCare
The Completion of 'Being Born' is at the whim and 'Privilege' of the Host-Womb...there are no pure "Rights" - Only "Privileges" and Permissions.
Abortion 'Rights' passes the baton to decree whether a 'human' will have a 'right' by the privileged-decision maker.
The same 'rights of the privileged deciders' will go straight down the line with Government Controlled HealthCare.
What 'gospel' is Landeverde preaching? The 'social' justice? No one is talking about CHRIST - so it isn't the Christian gospel.
My Christian gospel tells me to work hard - as unto the Lord; and then bless the less fortunate with what I've earned - from compassion. I do not have the right to take from my neighbor through force or intimidation to do my good deeds. What my neighbor does with his earnings is between him and God.
So Landeverde can take up a collection, and that's Christlike and compassionate. But he can not intimidate others into subsidizing his 'good deeds' through politics. That's twisted and demonic.
Christ teaches that you earn a living and freely give to help the less fortunate out of compassion. Marx teaches that you take from the more fortunate out of envy. Marx created Marxism/communism/socialism to REPLACE Christianity, which he thought was evil. You can not blend Marx with Christ.
My first thought too, but in reading full article, it was his Mother's donated kidney.
He didn't have a "Right" to her kidney - she needed to give "Permission" to "Privilege" him the kidney....
But yet he believes he has a "Right" to stuff.
” “Why can’t we be treated the same?” he asked while sitting in his hospital room. “Health care should be a human right, ...”
Ask that illegal immigrant if any of the pest hole Gubments south of the American border provide free medical care on the level which this scum is whining for.
People do that.
Now, raising money for the surgery ~ people do that too.
Here's how I deal with the youngman's political commentary ~ he's too ignorant to know how to say anything meaningful on the matter and secondly, it does look different being on the receiving end than the giving end.
Someday everything will be different ~
I’m wondering, since he believes he has a “right” to healthcare - does he also believe he has a ‘right’ to his mother’s kidney - if she chose not to ‘privilege’ him her kidney, does he think he has a ‘right’?
Since he thinks there should be a ‘right’
His life will be far different now.
Will the new kidney pass on it’s American citizenship making him an American citizen now? Of course, that would cause him to lose all his freebie.
Get out of my head.
[if it’s un-Christian, then we’ll have lots of time to chat with each other, later]
Just more of the same and the reason why I have been turning off all news and radio dealing with politics. it’s making me crazy and far too angry.
I’ll read but I can’t tolerate seeing this or hearing it debated by pundits.
The minute I hear crap like this I have to put on the classical music station or If i am at home, one of my classical vinyl records.
It calms me down.
The country wants this. Expect it on a regular basis and find a way to deal with your blood pressure.
