There’s just one problem . . .

The Syracuse Post-Standard reported that the New York State Health Department found St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center negligent in the case, and admonished the hospital for not adequately looking into how this mistake was made.
Patient Colleen S. Burns was reportedly admitted into St. Joseph’s emergency department in 2009 after overdosing on Xanax, Benadryl and a muscle relaxant. Hospital notes obtained by the Post-Standard revealed that the doctors thought she had undergone “cardiac death.” After doctors consulted with the family, they agreed to withdraw life support and donate her organs.
What actually happened was that Burns was in a deep coma from her overdose, and did not have irreversible brain damage.
The Health Department discovered that the staff did not perform a recommended treatment to stop the drugs from being absorbed into her stomach and intestines, did not test to see if she was free of all drugs and did not complete enough brain scans. They also did not wait long enough before recommending the patient was taken off life support.
The governors of Virginia, Ohio and Texas are in the news for signing into law bills which require women who want (need) to have an abortion. They believe that believe that these mere women do/could not understand how serious this undertaking is without a doctor, most likely a man, explaining their female bodies to them, reading to them an anti-abortion script and lastly, invading their vaginas with scope to decide whether there is a fetal heartbeat. You have, of course, heard of the transvaginal probe:
INVADING A WOMAN’S BODY AS REQUIRED BY INSENSITIVE LEGISLATORS
(WOMEN ARE REQUIRED TO PAY FOR THIS INDIGNITY)
What’s the need for a colonoscopy?
Back to the old men in Congress (who fear the “Big C“). If they dared talk to their doctors about the need for a colonoscopy, they would be calmed by the fact that they would be asleep when their anus is invaded by the probe. (I think the women in the pre-ceeding procedure are awake.)
What’s the point of this post? Women – and the men who truly love them – are tired of having the predominantly male government ignore their input and make laws that take control of their bodies with no regard for medical necessity, dignity and the proper role of the state in our progressive society. If men suffer their bodies being penetrated in a private place, maybe they’d think twice before requiring their women to suffer a similar indignity.
