Should alcoholics have to wait six months for a new liver?
Wed Nov 9, 2011
If a drinker is not allowed a liver transplant, then would deny bypass surgery to a smoker or morbidly obese person? Would you deny treatment to a smoker who has breast cancer? How about no knee replacements for anyone with a BMI over 35? We could really cut down on health care costs if we apply …
