Will Hillarycare Mean Delivering Your Own Baby?

The Left’s push for socialized medicine in this country shows how dogmatic, impractical, and incapable of logical thinking that they have become. After hearing horror story after horror story like this one coming out of nations like Britain and Canada, why in the world do Democrats like Hillary Clinton want to emulate the health care systems that produced them?

During a difficult pregnancy, Elizabeth Jones was monitored every day because doctors were worried about the health of her baby.

But on the day of the birth, she was twice turned away from the hospital because it was full – forcing her partner to deliver the baby himself at their home.

Miss Jones, 24, and her partner Anthony Jones – who coincidentally share the same surname – dashed to their local maternity unit when she started to have strong contractions.

However, their excitement at the prospect of the birth soon turned to horror when staff on the ward told them: “Sorry we are full. Come back later.”

Medics at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, near Cardiff, insisted the baby would not arrive for hours and suggested the couple go and have a cup of coffee while they tried to free up a bed.

Three hours later, they returned to the hospital when Miss Jones’s contractions became more frequent.

This time she was given a thorough examination by a midwife who confidently sent them away for the second time, telling them the baby was still “hours away”.

Once again, the frustrated couple headed back to their home in Bridgend. But within minutes Miss Jones felt the baby arriving.

Her partner’s 17-year-old daughter Kirsty called 999 and relayed instructions, as he delivered the baby himself on October 12 at 11am.

“It was a great experience – but at the time I wished we were in hospital in a controlled environment,” Mr Jones, 39, said. “What if something had gone wrong?

“It’s worrying that the only maternity hospital for miles around had to turn us away twice just while Elizabeth was in the last stages of labour.

“You hear so much about the NHS being under pressure but you would think that maternity would be a priority. Many things can wait for a later appointment – but never a baby.

“It’s very worrying that they haven’t got the facilities to do the job properly when you want it.

Oh, but that sort of thing wouldn’t eventually happen here under Hillarycare — right — and communism could work, if only the right people were in charge.

If you want massive shortages of doctors, antiquated equipment, outrageous wait times to get operations, and dozens of other similar disasters, just let Hillary and Company have their way with our health care, and you’ll see all these horror stories repeated on a regular basis in American hospitals.
