When I think of the term Healthcare I think of curing ills and maintaining good physical health. I do not think of providing non-essential drugs and surgical procedures to the masses.
Treating a urinary tract infection- Healthcare
Providing a 75 year old man with Viagra- Hedonism
Treating a woman (and the occasional man) for breast cancer- Healthcare
Providing breast augmentation to someone who wants a sweater to fit better- Hedonism
Providing blood pressure medicine, antibiotics, and life sustaining drugs necessary to keep someone ALIVE- Healthcare
Birth control, condoms, abortion pills- Hedonism
I could go on and on.
My main point is of course that what we currently have titled Healthcare Reform should just be labeled Obamahedonism. We NEED healthcare and many take a 2nd job to pay for it. Some get it for free. Now I have NO problem with Free Clinics as long as they provide HEALTH CARE and not Hedonism. The truth is that there are people who work very hard for very little. There are also people who work very little for a LOT. There will never be a perfect system especially as long as the government is involved.
Remember when we were told “you have to pass it to know what’s in it” and enough of those elected buckled and passed the stupid thing having NO CLUE what was in it? Well, I suspect MANY did know exactly what was in it and pushed the agenda HARD under the blanket of healthcare knowing it is, in fact, largely Hedonism.
But the fog is lifting and some are fighting back.
According to CBN News:
A Texas court has struck down a healthcare mandate that would reportedly force doctors to perform transgender surgeries on patients, including children, even if it’s against the doctor’s medical judgment.
The court ruling comes after eight states, an association of nearly 18,000 doctors, and a Catholic hospital system challenged the federal regulation.
“This is a common-sense ruling: The government has no business forcing private doctors to perform procedures on children that the government itself recognizes can be harmful and exempts its own doctors from performing,” said Lori Windham, senior counsel at Becket Law, which filed a lawsuit against the new federal regulation.
Common Sense – It’s about time somebody used some!!!
I doubt I have to state that an addadicktomy is the epitome of hedonism. BUT I guess I really should point out that forcing a CHILD to have unnecessary surgery to make a parent feel “politically correct” is ABUSE because apparently a LOT of people do NOT get that.
