    Slavery was a thing people wanted to pay for.
    Human donor organs are things people want to pay for.

    Wanting something doesn't make it right.

    I don't disagree with u in acknowledging our systems outcomes are really good, partially due to our advancements. Compare us to the NHS system (which is good but still has alot of shortcomings) n u see the pros of us.

    The issue is that alot of the ''costs" aren't going back into the system. They're going back into someone's pocket. Ppl like me don't see the profits, even alot of the hospitals that are 'not for profit' get shady with their earnings.

    But the answer is not telling someone in healthcare to refuse treatment of someone based on cost or inability to pay. It goes against the oaths we take n ethics we ascribe to .

    Those innovations were privately funded. That's why they go into someone's pocket. Do you have any idea how many really smart people are involved when making medical devices/medicines? And don't even try the "gubbermint should fund..." bullshit. Having the gubbermint fund that would fuck it up beyond all belief.

    Not for profit hospitals have to be well above board on everything they do. Are you telling me Shriner's and St. Judes are ripping the guubermint off?

    Your oath is to the patient at hand. Are you telling me you are responsible for the potential patient that dies outside of your care? Because that is what you are getting at. If you are not a citizen you do not have the right to spend Merican tax payer dollars. Period. They are only here because they can get the best health care and with all the stupid liberal bleeding hearts out there get it for free. That cost is passed onto us, when we go to the doctor/hospital and increased taxes. Someone always pays for it. Nothing is free. You're not fiscally responsible for my health issues and neither am I yours. Why does this simple logic get so fucky when there are illegals involved?

    Yes I am responsible for someone if they are in a life threatening event n I don't provide aid within my scope of practice if I am present.

    Alot of the big advancements n research studies of the past decades have been funded by grants, usually government substidized.

    We must protect life at the fetus so we can tell the broke single mom she can't afford to take her child to the doctor.

    Yes. It is socialism, you have no actual health care and death panels kill your elderly.

    Actually how does the Canadian system work? I know you guys have much cheaper prescription costs.
