Patients could be required to stop smoking, take exercise or lose weight before they can be treated on the National Health Service, Gordon Brown has suggested.
In a New Year message to NHS staff, the Prime Minister indicates people may have to fulfil new “responsibilities” in order to establish their entitlement to care.
Despite the NHS commitment to provide free universal care, it is already common for doctors to set conditions on patients seeking treatment.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence already considers so-called self-induced illnesses in setting the criteria that determine which patients should qualify for new or expensive health treatments.
“We will describe how we will achieve our shared ambition of an NHS which is more personal and responsive to individual needs,” the Prime Minister writes.
Where are the leaders of the black community on the issue that almost half of the babies conceived by blacks are aborted? Do they want their community to disappear? Or are they so wedded to the Party of Abortion that they dare not speak out? If the statistics showed that white people were killing half of all black babies, wouldn’t there be an outcry?
The CDC shows a majority of women who get abortions are white (53 percent)
compared with 35 percent done on African-Americans, 8 percent on women
of other ethnic backgrounds and the race of the woman was unknown
in four percent of the cases.
However, the abortion ratio for black women (472 per 1,000 live births) was
2.9 times higher than the ratio for white women (161 per 1,000).
Examined another way, nearly half of all pregnancies among black women end
in abortion while just 16 percent of pregnancies among white women
end in abortion.
The abortion rate for black women (28 per 1,000 women) was 2.8 times the
rate for white women (10 per 1,000).
Isn’t it interesting – if you point out that the black population is aborting itself away you are considered to be a racist.
