40 Year Old Women … No Mammograms For You … Welcome to the Future of Obamacare & Restriction of Health Care
So Sarah Palin was way off base when she mentioned “death panels,” eh?
40 year old women, no soup, um … no mammograms for you!
Be very afraid America … this is no coincidence that such a recommendation came out now as Obama and Democrats try and pass universal healthcare. How do you think that a government run option can afford to pay for 41 million new insured’s, they cut costs by calling screenings or procedures unnecessary. Welcome to the trial balloon birth of rationed health care.
A Government Task Force has stated that self-breast exams do no good and some women don’t need to start getting mammograms until they’re 50. Welcome to the beginning of Obamacare and socialized, government controlled healthcare. This is how it begins, a government task force turning decades old health care breast screening protocol on it’s head.
Shocking recommendations given the American Cancer Society has encouraged women for more than 20 years to do monthly self-exams and start getting routine mammograms in their 40s.
The government task force, which is made up of doctors and scientists, reported getting screened too early causes false alarms and unnecessary biopsies.
Dr. Robert Pulliam, of Professional Medical Ultrasonics in Beckley, said early detection of any form of cancer increases survival rates.
How many woman in their 40’s are alive today because the received a mammograms and had early detection of breast cancer? In this day and age, sadly, pretty much every one knows some one who has had breast cancer. Personally, I think this is appalling. Having had so many relatives and friend’s moms and sisters be diagnosed with breast cancer in their 40’s … I take this personally. This is the slippery slope of health care when a so-called “independent” government task force of doctors try and change what has worked for years. Shame on you!
In its first reevaluation of breast cancer screening since 2002, the independent government-appointed panel [talk about your oxymorons] recommended the changes, citing evidence that the potential harm to women having annual exams beginning at age 40 outweighs the benefit.
Coming amid a highly charged national debate over health-care reform and simmering suspicions about the possibility of rationing medical services, the recommendations immediately became enveloped in controversy.
Who are you going to put your trust in America, government shills, or The American Cancer Society? The Susan G. Komen Foundation that has done tremendous work in the battle against cancer had a comment or two regarding this so-called recommendation.
Executive director of the mid-Michigan Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation Chris Pearson said this government recommendation is scary.
What does the American Cancer Society have to say about this recommendation?
But the American Cancer Society, the American College of Radiology and other experts condemned the change, saying the benefits of routine mammography have been clearly demonstrated and play a key role in reducing the number of mastectomies and the death toll from one of the most common cancers.
“Tens of thousands of lives are being saved by mammography screening, and these idiots want to do away with it,” said Daniel B. Kopans, a radiology professor at Harvard Medical School. “It’s crazy — unethical, really.”
Hologic Shares (HOLX) Fell 3.2% After Government Task Force Recommended Less Mammograms
American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists say hell no to federal panel’s conclusions.
Exit Question: Why would anyone trust the government or any so-called independent, government panel with their health care? THINK AMERICA!
