So abortion is cruel, but uninsured American children don’t deserve health care because that’s “socialism”?Tuesday, November 29th, 2011
Question by the girl with kaleidoscope eyes: So abortion is cruel, but uninsured American children don’t deserve health care because that’s “socialism”?
-28,000 American infants die before they reach their first birthday
-Uninsured children are almost 9 times as likely to have a medical need that goes unmet than a child with health coverage, and are 5 times as likely as an insured child to go more than 2 years without seeing a doctor. Regular health screenings help doctors identify and treat problems preventively and are crucial to a child’s healthy development.
-An estimated two-thirds of children and youth with mental health needs are not getting the help they need. In fact, unmet need is as high today as it was 20 years ago. Children without mental health coverage are at risk of entering the Pipeline.
-Uninsured children are more than 4 times as likely as an insured child to have an unmet dental health need. In 2000, children missed more than 51 million hours of school because of dental-related illness.
-Uninsured children are more likely than insured children to perform poorly in school; in contrast, enrolling children in health coverage has been associated with greatly improved school performance.
1st of all, I don’t have kids, i’m 18, but I guess in your family thats the old age for having kids…
-Uninsured children come from working families. The vast majority of uninsured children (88.2 percent) come from families where at least one parent works, and more than two-thirds of uninsured children—or 68.5 percent—live in households where at least one family member works full-time, year-round.
So no, its not because of lazy parents.
-The five states with the largest number of uninsured children are Texas, California, Florida, New York, and Georgia. Together, the uninsured children in these five states account for nearly half of all uninsured children in the country (48.3 percent).
So its not only the “crazy liberal left wing” states…
I mean geez, even if the parent was a lazy bum, does the child deserve to suffer?
Why does everyone think I have kids?? Is 18 the average Conservative age for having kids? LMAO
