There is a reason why America rejects the notion that there should not be early detection of breast cancer for woman in their 40’s. We have all been touched be the deadly disease of breast cancer and the battle against the dreaded cancer transcends genders.
There is a reason why 81% of voters disagree the the new government rationed health care mammography suggestions from the so called Government Task force independent panel. Only 8% agree with the panels recommendations that woman not get early screenings in their 40’s. It is about the hypocritic oath, not the bottom line.
A federal medical panel’s recommendation that women can now wait until age 50 to get a routine mammogram instead of age 40 is stirring up strong debate. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey finds that 81% of adults disagree with the panel’s recommendation. Just nine percent (8%) agree with the new guideline, and another nine percent (9%) are not sure.
Why did not many people go ballistic when these new rationed health care guide lines came out? Maybe because about 75% of people know some one who has had breast cancer. This coming at the most in opportune time has Americans do not trust and do not want government healthcare or suggestions that it should be rationed.
Survivors of breast cancer, woman of all ages and backgrounds.
Breast cancer does not discriminate
Some want to call it communications malpractice; however, let’s call it for what it really is … rationed care. It is the foot in the door for a government health care bureaucracy limiting medical services to save money. Let us get one fact completely straight without a liberal slant of its about the way the message was presented, not the actually message. There is a reason why the mortality rate in the US is greater for women diagnosed with breast cancer than Europe. It’s called early screening!!! The Gateway Pundit provides some great informational numbers to just how much better the US is a dealing with breast cancer than places like Europe with socialized health care.
Researchers discovered that it was because of breast cancer screenings that women with breast cancer have a 14 percent higher survival rate in the United States than in Europe. Breast cancer mortality is 52 percent higher in Germany than in the United States, and 88 percent higher in the United Kingdom. Breast cancer mortality is also 9 percent higher in Canada than in the US. Less than 25 percent of U.S. women die from breast cancer. In Britain, it’s 46 percent; France, 35 percent; Germany, 31 percent; Canada, 28 percent; Australia, 28 percent, and New Zealand, 46 percent.
AMERICA, why do you think that the US has such better survival rates from cancer than these other countries listed? Hmm? Because our health care system is broken like the agenda driven government control Democrats would like you to believe? It is called early detection and quality health care. Try telling a surviver of breast cancer that her mammogram was a waste.
Could this government panel have picked a worse form of cancer or manner to diagnose it than breast cancer and mammograms? In October during Brest Cancer Awareness month, the NFL supported the cause and designated games and gear to provide awareness. He-man football players who would never be caught wearing pink, proudly supported the Breast Cancer cause.
Sadly, just recently Stefanie Spielman, the wife of NFL and Ohio State star Chris Spielman who led a public fight against breast cancer, died after a lengthy battle with the disease. She was 42. Yes, that is correct Independent Government Health Care panel, she died of breast cancer before the age you even recommend that woman be provided mammograms.
Stefanie & Chris Spielman
Stefanie Spielman was 30 years old and three months pregnant in 1998 when she detected a lump in her breast. She later miscarried and discovered she had cancer. She survived four bouts with cancer before a fifth recurrence in March.
Chris Spielman was playing linebacker with the Buffalo Bills when he decided to give up football for a year to stay home with his wife and children. When his wife lost her hair because of chemotherapy treatments, he shaved his head.
Earlier this year breast cancer was thrust upon the PGA and the men’s golfing tour when Left, Phil Mickelson’s wife Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer. Mickelson left the tour to be with his wife as her treatments began. The visibility that breast cancer has been given has been tremendous because as so many have learned with this awful disease is that it does not discriminate.
