I do believe that we are dealing with the exact same people as you are referring to.
Different time, different country, same people.
Oh lands, I wasn’t aware she was the spawn of our former governor, Gilligan. It all makes sense now. Welcome to Gilligan’s Island,where everyone will be shipwrecked
If we allowed the free market to work and let families of donors get paid, we would have far fewer of this kind of problem. Everyone gets paid in a transplant—the donating hospital, the transplanting hospital, the surgeon—except for the family of the deceased. That’s an artificial price control and of course creates shortages.
This is more of the ineptness of Zer0’s monstrosity of big government. This is an administration that takes no responsibility for its daily failure in this nation. We have the most mighty military in the history of mankind and Zer0 can’t do a relatively small, simple thing like acting to save an ambassador in a foreign land. And, when he does want to do something, like deny 501-C status, it’s a done deal.
Saving the life of Sarah Murnaghan is just too difficult for the behemoth Zer0 only uses for political purposes.
"Doctors say the girl needs an adult lung transplant (because pediatric lungs are so rare). They are confident that she would survive the procedure, but they say she has only three to five weeks to live."
Its issues like this that remind me of how much I hate both political parties. If I was the child’s parent I’d be doing everything possible to save my kid even if it meant taking the life from those further up in line or having the public treasury spend every last dollar to save my kid...
As a Conservative I recognize life is unfair and the public treasury is limited..
So THAT’s the skank in charge of Ubama’s death panel.
Someone call Warren Buffet to tell him that a few chump change millions from him will save this girl instead of him wanting to send his money to the Federal government.
Someone call Michael Bloomberg to tell him that a few chump change millions from him will save this girl instead of him spending millions in ads to take away our guns.
Sebelius is auditioning for her role as chairperson of that Great Death Panel Inside The Beltway.
Thwe girl just needs to post a fabricated birth certificate online showing that she was born in 1961 and shell be fine. What makes anybody think shes not an adult anyway?
I love you, Butter!!
We cant afford to save everyone adults will need to make hard choices..unfortunately many calling themselves Conservative are just as childish and immature as the other side.
As I say this sort of BS just reinforces my dislike for both Dims and GOPers
I’m so sorry, cold water. I think the FReepers are really just mad at ObamaCare. They are angry at bureaucrats playing Gd, and they don’t understand the intricate medical decisions involved. I’m sorry for their response which is disrespectful to adults in this situation.
It’s just horrible when a child is in such danger. There are other children in danger and doctors’ hands are tied legally too. This one is getting press. It’s all sad and I pray for everyone.
Pray tell what that reason may be?
I thought the girl’s doctors said she would be able to accept the transplant. That was from a quick skim of the Daily Mail article. Have to say that I don’t know enough of this issue to really have an opinion.
I was mortified when I read this. Everytime this witch opens her mouth, I swear I think of Sarah Palin and the “death panel” scenerio that she was rolled over hot coals for saying.
Here’s what I’m thinking - there’s an adult out there waiting for a lung. That adult might be the mother of three or the sole supporting member of a family of six. Why should this 10 year old go to the head of the line? Cystic fibrosis destroyed her lungs. How long would it take for that horrible, incurable disease to destroy the transplanted lung?
You would prefer that an "impartial" government panel made that decision?
Or would you prefer that YOU made that decision regarding your loved ones? Or that somebody you loved made that decision about you?
It's personal, Joe. It's damn personal. Between the relative, the survivor and the physician.
At 73, I've had to make that decision more times than I'd like. And it is not for some half-assed government bureaucrat in a federal office 400 miles away to make, dammit!
If you want to abdicate your responsibility, you're free to do it. But don't you dare take that responsibility away from other who are prepared to exercise it, as well.
