Is this a Great Example of Why we need to get the Greed out of Medical/Health Care?
NEW YORK – Two emergency medical technicians accused of refusing to help a dying pregnant woman are "inhuman" and shouldn't have taken those jobs if they weren't willing to get involved, the woman's mother said Tuesday. "These are people who are supposed to take a minute to be concerned," Cynthia Rennix told The Associated Press. Rennix's daughter, 25-year-old Eutisha Revee Rennix, died at a hospital Dec. 9, shortly after collapsing in the Au Bon Pain shop in Brooklyn where she worked. Her baby was too premature to survive. Witnesses said the EMTs were on their break and told employees to call 911, then left when they were asked to help the woman. XXXXXXXXXXXXX These 2 arsholes should be not only Fired but charged with 2 counts of Negligent Homicide! (Cause they're obviously only in this line of work for the Money.) This is also what I hate about Unions! "I'm on break", or "Not my Job" or "My boss (the Man) didn't tell me to help you" So in the Health care debate; Your opinions? Do you agree? Or did this woman and her unborn child not have the right to Live? How is greed a part of this? Simple if you've ever been denied Health Care because you didn't have Insurance (personnal experiance, clinic denied treating my daughter age 20 months because I didn't have insurance. Her apendix ruptured a couple days later.) What does Unions have to do with this? "Not My Job", "My boss didn't tell me too" If you've ever worked in a union shop, you know there are many people there that only do their job, only what their supervisor tells them and nothing more. So while EMT's don't make huge money. They also make a lot more then Minimum wage. In the case of these 2, their Apathy make them more suited for the morgue! And I wouldn't want them in a Fox Hole with me! Wow Ted, 1st, Moses gave us the 10 Commandments. And you have broken a couple of them with your answer. Also, Jesus told us; "As you treat the Least amoung you. So you Treat Me!" "Love (care about) your neighbor as you Love Yourself". Don't start with me on the Bible. I am the Son of a retired Pentacostal Minister Also Ted, so a new born baby can defend it's self? Right! God has challanged us to take care of each other. Not Kill each other!

I'd like to understand how their activities amount to greed. Inhuman, to be sure, but greedy?

EMTs aren't paid *that* much to be doing it for the money. But it is a tragic story.

Atrocious, and they should be fired and perhaps prosecuted. But this event has little to do with the debate over healthcare in the Nation. Don't confuse the right for the woman and her child to live, with the need for legitimate healthcare reforms. By the way, the current senate bill and/or the house version, would... More

It is sad, but I do not understand how you blame "greed" and "unions" in the same question. In terms of "greed" a private company would be held liable for the damages done by their employees. A union will not be, and a government run health care system would never be held liable either. It seems to me the one who'd... More
