A health care pro-life nightmare story for Ann Coulter
Advertisements [?]
So Ann Coulter thinks there is no health care crisis in our country? Has she been in a coma?

I posted a few weeks ago about our neighbors who are pregnant and found out the baby is most likely not viable. They are now telling them that there is a slight chance the baby will survive if she carries him full term. She is almost 8 months pregnant and her doctors told her she could decide to have an abortion now or carry the baby to term. If he is born alive, he will immediately go into neonatal intensive care at a cost of $10,000 a day. And that is just the cost of the stay, it doesn't include tests or medications or surgeries.

The insurance company will pay one third.

The hospital said if the baby survives it will cost at least a million dollars to save him.

They decided to carry the baby to term and hope for the best.

So these 28 year old kids will likely need to declare bankruptcy to save their baby.

Now if that doesn't convince you there is a health care crisis in this country, you don't have a heart.
