But this is incredible..
Another NYTimes article.
This is insane to me. After seeing the kittens die from each of the litters I dealt with last month, I couldn’t help but think how lucky humans are – at least in the U.S. – to have a 6/1000 infant mortality instead of a, what, 300/1000 rate? And why is that? Health care. Well, not living under a shed certainly helps. But you catch my drift. I mean, jeez, what good can come of taking healthcare away from infants and children?!
“Under a new federal policy, children born in the United States to illegal immigrants with low incomes will no longer be automatically entitled to health insurance through Medicaid, Bush administration officials said Thursday.
“Doctors and hospitals said the policy change would make it more difficult for such infants, who are United States citizens, to obtain health care needed in the first year of life.”
