Arizona cuts financing for transplant patients

2 posts / 0 new

Yes, human life in America really does come with a price tag. If you are on state funded medicaid, you will be denied a life saving transplant operation because you cannot afford to pay for it on your own.

Oh those lovely Republican politicians. Death panels anyone??

Keith Olbermann has been a great champion on this issue, focusing a lot on the people actually being affected by what's in essense, actual "death panels". Also Governor Jan Brewer was confronted by a journalist concerning this, a British one if I recall.

At least as a Republican she's not limiting her contempt for humanity to just one issue (the other being the racist Arizona law).

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
