**Abortions Need More Funding Than Medical Surgeries Oregon Health Plan Says
**[size=3]http://www.lifenews.com/oregon.gif[/size]Salem, OR (LifeNews.com) – A new analysis finds that the Oregon Health Plan is perhaps the first government-run health care plan in the world to draw up official procedures for rationing. The plan ranks various surgeries and diseases and conditions in order of importance and places abortion high on the list. Linda Gorman, a senior fellow with the Independence Institute, produced the analysis, which comes on the heels of concerns about similar rationing in the Congressional economic stimulus bill. Gorman says Oregon officials made the rankings following public comment and used a scale to place them in order of priority from 1 to 680. Surprisingly, abortions rank 41st on the list of 680 most important surgeries and conditions to consider. That indicates “the state considers using public money for abortions more important than treating” other things, Gorman said. Abortion is listed ahead of treating an ectopic pregnancy (43), sexually transmitted diseases (56), or an infection or hemorrhage resulting from a miscarriage (68). Full story at LifeNews.com

It’s a crazy world! :frowning:

A chilling list of priorities, indeed. :frowning:

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Unborn, pray for us!



Oregon is filled with doctors who salute the legality of euthanasia and act accordingly. Guess their taste for blood has spread. Sure they want more money for abortions - and who needs surgeries when patients are willing to be killed?


It would be my opinion that there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Oregon mindset and that of the Democrat party generally. If we really do get universal healthcare, we’ll get rationing, unofficially, of course, and abortion will be high on the priority list. After all, why do a cardiac bypass on a 68 year old man when you could kill a baby with the same money?:frowning:
