Socialized Medicine Leaves Woman to Give Birth on Sidewalk

Posted by Dave Blount at August 19, 2009 7:04 AM

One advantage of socialized medicine is that it makes healthcare more of an adventure. For example, pregnant women sometimes experience the thrill of having to give birth on the sidewalk:

Mother-of-three Carmen Blake called her midwife to ask for an ambulance when she went into labour unexpectedly with her fourth child.
But the 27-year-old claims she was refused an ambulance and told to walk the 100m from her house in Leicester to the city's nearby Royal Infirmary.
Her daughter Mariah was delivered on a pavement outside the hospital by a passer-by, just before ambulance crews arrived.

British-style healthcare is coming our way soon, compliments of the Democrat Party.
