UK National Health Nightmare: Baby denied treatment because it was born 2 days early. Baby dies!

Posted by iusbvision on September 9, 2009

This is truly sickening. It looks like the British National Health Service (NHS) has rationed the hippocratic oath right out of the doctors and nurses themselves.

Daily Mail UK:

Doctors left a premature baby to die because he was born two days too early, his devastated mother claimed yesterday.

Sarah Capewell begged them to save her tiny son, who was born just 21 weeks and five days into her pregnancy – almost four months early.

They ignored her pleas and allegedly told her they were following national guidelines that babies born before 22 weeks should not be given medical treatment.

Miss Capewell, 23, said doctors refused to even see her son Jayden, who lived for almost two hours without any medical support.

She said he was breathing unaided, had a strong heartbeat and was even moving his arms and legs, but medics refused to admit him to a special care baby unit.

Miss Capewell is now fighting for a review of the medical guidelines.

Medics allegedly told her that they would have tried to save the baby if he had been born two days later, at 22 weeks.

In fact, the medical guidelines for Health Service hospitals state that babies should not be given intensive care if they are born at less than 23 weeks.

The guidance, drawn up by the Nuffield Council, is not compulsory but advises doctors that medical intervention for very premature children is not in the best interests of the baby, and is not ‘standard practice’.

James Paget Hospital in Norfolk refused to comment on the case but said it was not responsible for setting the guidelines relating to premature births.

A trust spokesman said: ‘Like other acute hospitals, we follow national guidance from the British Association of Perinatal Medicine regarding premature births.’

Darwin vs. Leftism

Posted by iusbvision on September 9, 2009

Again, this video does go a little bit too far but makes an excellent point. The left likes to pick and choose the parts of Darwinism that it likes and the other parts just vanish….

Argument: The “birther” issue is not a Republican issue, it is a transparency issue.

Posted by iusbvision on September 9, 2009

The man in the video above almost has it right. It is the White House that has been pushing the bogus birther story in the media. It is a classic political rope-a-dope move called triangulation meant to make anyone who falls for it looking like a dope.

Of course as we have stated before, the State of Hawaii says that they have seen the real birth certificate and it does exist, but Obama has made it clear that a certified copy of it is NOT to be released. I believe that he is a legal citizen because the State of Hawaii says so.

With that said, and as we have said before, this is a classic John Podesta communications strategy move. It was the White House who refused to give up all sorts of documents that other presidents have, so when people brought it up, here comes the White House Press Sec. Robert Gibbs speaking out on the “birther” issue, paste it on “all Republicans” and call them names. It is a classic straw man who the White House set up and knocked down with false spin to smear Republicans.

If any of you do not believe that political machines will go this far to sway public opinion then you need to take a few good poli-sci classes and read a few books. It was the White House and John Podesta (they admitted it) who created the strategy to target Rush Limbaugh, bring up quotes out of context to use against him and use the media to crown him the head of the Republican Party. They planned this months in advance and said so. Did you believe that Rush Limbaugh said that he hopes that Obama fails and said it for partisan political reasons only? If you fell for this then you fell into Podesta’s spin. What Limbaugh actually said (and we posted the transcripts and video to this very site) is that “if Obama wants to socialize America than I want him to fail. I hope he fails because that is what would be the best for the country.” So all if you do not believe that Obama is trying to socialize America, than you have nothing to worry about from Rush Limbaugh.

The Spirit of a True Radical: Thomas Jefferson

Posted by iusbvision on September 9, 2009

I think this video may go a little too far. With that said it makes some very interesting points that can push you right out of your comfort zone.

Some people would freak if they had ANY idea what Bible thumping, greek history reading, philosophy geek, gun-toting radicals most of the Founding Fathers really were. They were literally ready to shoot people over a tax that today we would consider small. They believed that if the government’s thugs pushed too far that it was your duty as an American to resist with force of arms.  Jefferson very much believed that if any government went too far and disobeyed the Constitution and as a result the citizens extracted some of the government’s blood as a result that it was a good thing and should happen from time to time. History has become SO white washed and filtered that most people really don’t understand the hearts and minds of the Founders. As much as I admire Jefferson, I don’t think I could be as hard core as he was.

The norm for the world is tyranny of some type or oligarchy and central control. America’s experiment in human freedom, by world standards, is radical libertarian stuff. By OUR standards, having a society that is used to freedom, here the radicals are those who wish to be more like the rest of the world.

So the video asks, “Are Honduran’s more patriotic than we Americans and are they more in line with the ‘spirit of Jefferson’ than we Americans are?” This video makes the case that this may very well be the situation we find ourselves in. The Honduran people did the right thing as they caught their own president red-handed going for a fast version of the “Hugo Chavez take over”. 

This video is important to watch, even if you don’t agree it is thought provoking and a bit discomforting, which makes it a good intellectual exercise.
