Newborns Get Screwed, Too

Once again, the complete and total lack of smiting is such a sure sign that there is no God. If He did exist, He would surely have struck down Bush and the rest of the so-called Christians who only pay lip service but do nothing remotely Christian-like in terms of caring for others and having compassion and all the things the New Testament mentions. The latest example:

Under a new federal policy, children born in the United States to illegal immigrants with low incomes will no longer be automatically entitled to health insurance through Medicaid, Bush administration officials said Thursday.

Doctors said the policy change would make it more difficult for such infants, who are U.S. citizens, to get health care in the first year of life.


Under the new policy, an application must be filed for the baby, and the parents must prove the child's citizenship.

"The federal government told us we have no latitude. All states must change their policies and practices," said Marilyn E. Wilson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Medicaid program.


Obtaining such documents can take weeks or months in some states, doctors said.

About 4 million babies are born in the United States each year, and Medicaid pays for more than one-third of all births. The number involving illegal immigrant parents is unknown, but is likely to be in the tens of thousands, health experts said.

"We're totally opposed to abortion. Every sperm is sacred. You're committing murder when you have an abortion. But once they're out of the womb, they're not our problem anymore. We just care about unborn children. All the ones that make it out of the womb can just go to hell."

Also, explain to me why there isn't just a simple document from the hospital that certifies "Yes. We delivered this baby here on US soil"? Cause that's pretty much all you need for the baby to be a citizen.
