Coming soon: Birth panels?

Victor Joecks

And why not? What could be fairer than having a “panel of experts” determine if it’s proper for you and your family to welcome an enormous future drain on limited medical resources into the world?

After all, there just aren’t enough hospital beds for all the pregnant mothers – in the UK.

From the Daily Mail:

Thousands of women are having to give birth outside maternity wards because of a lack of midwives and hospital beds.

The lives of mothers and babies are being put at risk as births in locations ranging from lifts to toilets – even a caravan – went up 15 per cent last year to almost 4,000.

Health chiefs admit a lack of maternity beds is partly to blame for the crisis, with hundreds of women in labour being turned away from hospitals because they are full.

Remember, with the Trojan-horse-for-socialized-medicine Obamacare plan, health rationing is your patriotic duty.

And to think all this could be ours for only a couple of trillion dollars. Good thing freedom lovers have better solutions.
