What you are probably referring to is assisted suicide, which is legal in the states of California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington; its status is disputed in Montana. Those are only 6 states out of 50. It is not just a "Republican: issue, since they do not control the other 44 states.
New York is run by the Democrats, as are many other blue states. They have not signed off on this either.
You always have the right to die. It is in every state. You can decline food or medical services at any time. We did this for my father in New York.
Tell me what babies are dying and suffering. Health care is nearly universal already. It is health "insurance" that is the issue. The poor have Medicaid and other State provided resources. I live in a poor backward state. Our babies are not dying like you described.
I just explained how a family like mine could
fall through these cracks.. so sure.. if you are dirt poor.. everything is covered.. unfortunately IF YOU WORK, always had a job, then find yourself on hard times after a lay off.. Jobs that offer benefits are going the way of the dinosaur .. and these Marketplaces options sound like a situation where I might as well hold up a sign saying "Will work for health care for my family".. as it could cost like $2,000 a month when we might be strapped making $45,000 a year... then some horrendous deducible like $10,000 a year on top of that.. It's just not reasonable, feasible..
I just mean it's generally conservative Republicans who are against Abortion.. but also Against universal Health care.. I know enough Conservative Christians in my area -Church is filled with Republicans.. if you're not one.. better not open your mouth, or they'll set you straight.. but yeah. they would shudder to hear I was for "Assisted Suicide"...
I mean.. sure we can all just take a bottle of pills.. I guess It's those who can't even do that.. paralyzed from the neck down.. I feel for them.. they have the right... I have a few books on these issues... Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying,
...." A Merciful End"... and "Last rights, the struggle over the right to die"..
The babies.. I guess we do have "CHIP" right now in this country.. a friend & me were talking about it the other day... it's till age 19 I guess... and it's income guidelines are much higher than those for the parents... so thank God for this.. babies should be OK...
The truth is.. I really don't trust ANYONE who has an attitude of "It's not my concern, don't touch my taxes...if you find yourself down on your luck.. it's your own fault".. there is clearly a mentality there that blames the lower income for their predicament, we're all lumped together..... so with enough of these leading our Government.. I do not trust that CHIP won't be chipped away also...
