Federal Judge Intervenes in a Medical Decision


Recommended Posts

A federal judge has intervened on behalf of Sarah Murnhagan, issuing a ten-day restraining order instructing Kathleen Sebelius to stop applying the "under 12" rule regarding the allocation of adult lung donations. Sarah has been on the waiting list for children's lung donations, which are rarer than adult lungs, for 18 months. According to her parents, Sarah has only weeks left to live without a lung transplant.

This is good news for Sarah and her family, and I wish them all the best! But, it raises some serious questions about the role of federal judges in overriding policy established by medical professionals and the allocation of the very rare resource of human organs. Should federal judges be allowed to intervene in decisions that should be decided by properly trained and knowledgeable medical professionals?

The current administration has nothing to do with this, moron. And socialism has nothing whatsoever to do with the scarcity of transplantable human organs. Good grief! You are one very stupid motherfucker.

Nobody wants a little girl to die...but in all fairness Kathleen Sebelius's position was the correct one...she could have worded it better but in fact "Someone lives and someone dies." It's cold hard reality. Pressure to change this IMHO was just political posturing to escape the bad press..

Another moron who doesn't pay attention.

Sebelius declined to become involved in a very difficult decision best left to medical professionals. She was merely honoring the policy written by medical professionals and enacted in '05.

 

Do you think federal judges should intervene in decisions made by medical professional in accordance with established policy? It's a simple question. Considering you're a simple-minded fool, you should be able to provide a 'yes' or 'no' answer.

Medical professionals shouldn't make medical decisions. Really?

So you let your plumber stick his finger up your ass once a year and tell you your pipes are just fine? Jeez, you are a fucking idiot!

 

Sarah is on the waiting list for a child's lung, but they are much rarer than adult lungs. Sebelius deferred to professional medical opinion on whether she was a viable candidate for an adult lung, and the professional medical opinion was that she is not. A very difficult decision for them to reach, and even tougher for the family. And you're stupid enough to think a government official is more knowledgeable than trained, experienced and respected medical professionals?

 

Now, answer my question, or keep your ass out of my thread, dickweed. Should federal judges be allowed to intervene in decisions that should be decided by properly trained and knowledgeable medical professionals?

When are you guys going to issue hunting tags for kids like they do deer tags? Next thing you know you will need a good child taxidermist so you can display your trophies. I guess you could keep a bunch of baby feet in a jar on your desk like most abortion doctors do.

You really don't have a clue what this is all about, do you, pencil-neck?

 

Why would we ever have such a rule i the first place?

Because there are already many adults on the waiting list for adult lungs. They're not exactly a convenience store item.

You appear to have this back-to-front, because intervention has already taken place. The question is who was allowed to benefit from the changes.

 

In 2000, the US Department of Health and Human Services ruled that organ allocation had to be based on 'medical necessity' instead of the amount of time someone is on the list for an organ. Overlooked were patients under the age of 12 when the rules were changed, even though they can be allocated a partial lobe.

 

As a result, kids under 12 are considered only after the needs of all adults on the list have been met, despite the severity of the listed child's or adult's illness.

What i don't like is if you're poor, you're the last to get an organ, if you're rich, you're at the front of the line. And the rich are the least deserving and least valuable to society to get a new chance at life.

While there's ostensible rules that purport to even the field for those on waiting lists, they don't function in real life.

So it can be said with no uncertainty that you are a hypocritical idiot. And that you're a clueless buffoon on this issue as well. No surprise.

If she did, then decent compassionate people would expect all critically ill children to receive special treatment. Come on, you save one child from an early grave, and you'll be expected to save another & another. Next thing you know, all sick kids will be entitled to life saving surgeries. In the meantime, we still lay out 500+ billion dollars EVERY SINGLE YEAR , for welfare, social services, education, medical, and the incarceration of Illegal Aliens; people who, by law, shouldn't even be here, polluting our country.

 

GO BARRY!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, it wasn't (see above), because she was the one in the very position to make similar changes as were made in 2000, but this time to benefit the kids.

Yes, it was. She abided by established policy and deferred the decision to medical professionals. You're just anther typical right wingnut hypocrite who's all gung-ho against federal judges getting involved in issues where they don't belong unless you are.

Ignorant bitch.
