    Then pleeeeeeease explain how you can claim to be "pro-life" and be pro-death in the same instance.

    Because the pro-life argument was invented by winy hypocrites? Nobody remember the killing of that abortionist? Because the "pro-lifers" got pissed?

    Unsatified. I have virtually never used it, yet my premiums still go-up.

    The average employer-sponsored premium for a family of four costs close to $13,000 a year, well over $1,000 a month.

    My $100 claim was based on personal anecdotal evidence until I found the article. The average is $217 a month. For a family of 3 the price drops to $161 per person per month. Not too far off and still very affordable to anyone working a fulltime job.

    This doesn't include deductibles, tax breaks, or special state programs.

    Considering the average income in the US is around 50k per year this is very affordable.

    You may as well have answered "orange" as it would have carried as much weight.

    If you want to ACTUALLY address the issue, please let me know.


    I believe I have addressed this:



    Not sure how you think yours is still a relevant point, or how it addresses the issue I brought forth.
    People exercise their option right now to give to charity. That does not change the fact that the vast, vast, majority of people are simply unwilling to deny care to those that need life saving care yet are unable to pay for it.

    You can come up with all the fantasy scenarios you want, but it does not change the fact that if someone's kid was hit by a car, and taken to the hospital, that hospital will treat them even if they uninsured and can't pay for it. That is reality.

    Yes... because those few pro-lifers that have killed abortionists are representative of the pro-life side as a whole, just like the perpetrators of 9-11 are representative of Islam as a whole.

    It isn't that is my point. Very few people are willing to live in a society where someone can be denied life saving care in an emergency room simply because they don't have the ability to pay for it. This well "life is tough" crap that Goobieman is spouting is a fantasy. No one with a conscience is going to deny life saving care to someone in an emergency room if they are uninsured.

    Then your 'problem' does not exist -- people so inclined have a means to keep those w/o health insurance from dying on the street.

    That does not change the fact that the vast, vast, majority of people are simply unwilling to deny care to those that need life saving care yet are unable to pay for it.
    See above -- they have an option, an avenue along which they may act as their conscious dictates.

    Now, were you going to tell me how, exactly, someone's right to healt care trumps the right of those that provide said health care to get paid, or is so sufficienrly strong to force others to pay said providers?

    Or were you going to continue to, evade, deflect and obfuscate?

    'cuz it seems to me that if you had a good, solid, sound answer, you'd take the question head on.

    I don't accept your brazenly childish terms. ("Pro-death," indeed.)

    Not that I'm surprised; you ARE one of THE most dishonest, rabidly-partisan people on this board, and considering the talent pool (left AND right), that's an achievement.

    But to use your own type of terminology and your own level of debate -- how can "health care" be used to slaughter babies? Huh? Huh?

    Grow up. Take off your ideological blinders. See that the world is many shades and not just the black and white of extreme partisanship.
