Dead Babies

I can't stand people whining about healthcare for the poor and sick and young and helpless.

If there were a moral duty to save lives, then dollar-for-dollar we could save more lives by investing our billions in Africa. It costs $200,000 for a bone marrow transplant to save one American- say 40 years of life. For that much, you could save hundreds of Malaria victims who are currently dying in.. Kenya is it?

Clean water. Condoms. Whatever.

The fact is that for the most part, universal health care advocates don't care if there are children being tied to trees and raped to death in Darfur. They're just terrified of getting sick and dying. Or watching their children waste away and not being able to afford morphine. It's self-interest so intense that they don't mind robbing the small percent of the country that can afford to live forever.

Clean living and exercise are out of the question. Though honestly I don't think most people live egregiously unhealthily. Except for smoking. Occasional binge drinking and daily intake of grease and artificial sugar and preservatives is reasonable. But if you expect me to pay for a 50 year old man's liver transplant when he could pay cash, if he'd just saved decades of beer money...

When I get diabetes from all the ice cream and Dr. Pepper(TM), I still won't support the public option.
