There's battle lines being drawn...Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
We better stop...Hey, what's that sound? Everybody look - what's going down?
This is the same situation as the Abortion discussion, it never has been and never will be about when life starts. That's the stupidest and most intellectually dishonest position one could ever take on a policy issue.
Same principle applies here.

The conservative "intelligentsia" here are pretty weak. Tearing apart their threads and posts is like shooting fish in a barrel.
Loyola performs free kidney transplant for illegal immigrant
Jorge Mariscal, a 24-year-old graphic design student, received a kidney transplant he waited eight long years for courtesy of Chicago’s Loyola University Medial Center this past Thursday. But, you see, Mariscal is an illegal immigrant who came to the U.S. from Mexico when he was a year old.
The Chicago Tribune reported that Mariscal considered heading back to Mexico for the transplant since “doctors said he wouldn't be able to receive a kidney transplant in the U.S. because he is undocumented.” However, Loyola agreed to pay for the surgery, and Mariscol will have to come up with the approximately $10,000 a year cost for the medications he will need to be on for the rest of his life.
Quite a difficult feat for one without medical insurance.
Carpenter's history. He just doesn't know it yet.
As to Medical care being better in Europe... Link it homie and make sure like isn't about "healthcare"... Actual advanced medical techniques and availability of those techniques please.
As to profit driven... That is where advancement comes from. Rapid Arc radiation therapy is fantastic (not on the planning side) and it wouldn't even be available to cancer patients had there been nothing for Elekta (Varian) to gain by doing all the R&D to develpoe such a practice.
There would be no robotic surgery had the company that makes the Davinci equipment not profited from it's developement.
Pretty sure the stem cell research teams know there is an end game cash award for developing a breakthrough... It would be nice if all was done do to pure godliness.
The profits don't go into research, they go into advertising. ("When the time is right..")
The research comes from the government.
Bull****. Have you ever seen a commercial for mammosite brachytherapy partial breast treatment?
