Again, the state stupidly intervenes in the life/death process. 

Shameful!

Where is the money coming from for the treatment the parents want?
  

Making Sci-Fi great again since 2063.

Not taking Jeff seriously until he admits this is animal abuse (which he says should be illegal): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WE-IT7_CaE4

No parent wants to give up but the sad fact is that this child is in a vegatative state and spending millions on a futile effort to save him would obviously tax the great universal health care system Britain has.

Why the emphasis on that child when 1 in 4 American children doesn't even have proper health care.

https://www.cnn.com/2016/11/21/health/20-million-kids-lack-proper-health-care-ne...

Hey, I think I know what this is all about! Burnsred isn't allowed to talk to me so he ignores his own country's mess and attacks a far superior health care system.

Is burnsred going to lose some sleep over this dying child? Hmmmmm? Doesn't sound like any pseudo-libertarians will. They will be sitting picking the wings off of houseflies in anticipation of the sad news.

Burnsred, you need to ask Craig Sickler to say something for you here. It's within the rules to talk about what I say to him I think?

The state pays the bill for treatment Oppo, but the state's courts and it's doctors have decided that this wouldn't be a case that could have a happy ending.

I fear that if it was a black child in the US in this kind of condition, the decision would be made quickly based on his skin colour.

Theoretically speaking that is because they are the children that don't have the insurance and don't get first class care.

Not in Cuba. They have universal health care equivalent to the US, except that all Cubans have it and all Americans don't.

That puts an entirely different light on poverty doesn't it therm! Not to mention free quality education for all Cubans and adequate healthy food!

And also not to have to mention that the live in a tropical paradise as good as *California while poor Americans live in some shit hole in the middle of a dust bowl.

*poor people are moving away from California.
