Another Installment in the Horrors of Socialized Medicine

The closest thing to a silver lining regarding socialized medicine is that at least putting government bureaucrats in charge of healthcare creates some chilling tales of the macabre:

British mothers upset that their dead children’s brains were secretly removed and kept in jars said police are probing 40 cases in just one English county.

Horrified Lisa Burton, 40 — whose daughter Zoe was three when she died from epilepsy 15 years ago — said police visited her to break the news.

“They said there were 40 people affected — and that’s just locally. No one seems to be able to answer any questions, and I’m very angry,” according to Burton, from Wimborne in the county of Dorset, southwestern England.

Distraught Julie Middleton, 40, of Poole, Dorset, said cops gave her the same figure.

She learned that the brain of her six-week-old son Regan was still in a jar at Southampton General Hospital 12 years after his death.

Rumors that ObamaCare redirects $47,000,000,000,000,000 in stimulus money to the National Institutes of Health to study the feasibility of reanimating brains, signing the brains up for welfare, and then hooking them up to voting machines can only be debunked when someone manages to read the whole bill.

Brain-in-Jar
New Democrat constituency?

On a tip from Dave H.

    Abby Normal…

    Obviously wrong, as having a functional brain is not necessary to vote for a Democrat. A pulse isn’t even a requirement, especially in Chicago.

    Dave
    Replace that brain with a pea, and you may be on to something.

  4. hiram says:

    I get it. The kid died from an epileptic seizure, and they probably wanted the brain for research. A noble cause, and one for which most parents would probably agree to an organ donation.

    What this really demonstrates is the mind-set of these statist bastards. They don’t see these dead children as human beings with families (families that have the right to decide what is done with their children’s bodies, or parts thereof). The NHS just sees them as the property of the Almighty State, to be done with as the State wishes.

    The notion of a brain donor always brings up Santmorun. This is what you get in a weepy, whining social conservative.

    There could not have been a worse choice in all the primary candidates than Santmorun. Not only is he a liberal, but with that track record, he will be licking BO’s shoes at the debates.

  7. Agnostic Conservative says:

    There’s no point railing about Obamacare when you are nominating Romney.

    The entire Obamacare issue has been nullified this election cycle.

  8. drjohn says:

    “Rumors that ObamaCare redirects $47,000,000,000,000,000 in stimulus money to the National Institutes of Health to study the feasibility of reanimating brains,”

    And they come to the conclusion that demcorat voters are best off without one as they are now….
