Cancer vs the Constitution – This post breaks my heart. I grew up in Canada and live in the UK – both countries that have socialized medical care. Such medical care would have saved this American woman’s life when she came into the ER with cervical cancer so advanced the doctor could smell it. She was uninsured and because of that, doctors refused to give her treatment until it was too late. Despicable. The author of this post, herself a doctor, sneaked the patient in for under-the-table emergent scans and treatment.
