    Arizona Death Panel Claims Another Victim

    *Arizona Death Panel Claims Another Victim* :***** Information Clearing House: ICH

    Tucson University Medical Center has confirmed that a patient who was refused a liver transplant due to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s decision to cut the state benefit that would have made the transplant possible, has died. The patient had been scheduled for the needed transplant but was dropped from the waiting list on October 1st when the cuts went into effect.
    Please allow the preceding paragraph to sink into your consciousness for a moment.

    The Arizona budget that previously provided transplants to people in need was $1.4 million. As there were 99 people on the waiting list for transplants at the time the cuts went into effect, the net result is that the State of Arizona valued each of these lives at something less than $14,000 a person.

    Today, there are only 97 on the waiting list as two have passed away.
    Where was the charity we are told would assist people like this?

    I'm not bothered.
    I oppose transplants - period.

    What makes you think its the government's job to assist in transplants to begin with?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Why do you oppose transplants?

    Did I say it was?

    Notice how I asked where was the charity that conservatives so like to state will take care of the unfortunate, eliminating the need for governmental assistance. Given the conservative nature of Arizona I was suprised that millions of people did not donate to assist this person a fellow american could live.

    Overall I am dissappointed at the individuals of Arizona who decided this person should die because they were too cheap to donate a few cents each to allow this person to get a transplant

    There are various reasons a person might need a new liver. I need a new heart because I was born with isolated left ventricular non compaction.

    Well that was completely wrong.
