Stigma allows Georgia to Discriminate against Obese

It is hard to believe a State could get away with cutting access to care across the board to any other disease.

CNN Video - thanks to ASMBS for spreading

"Sorry, we no longer can afford chemo, we won't pay"

"You made a decision to become pregnant, we won't pay"

"You crashed your car while over the speed limit, we won't pay"

"Cardiac stents have a rate of restenosis and failure, we won't pay"

We will look back at this years from now with the same disbelief that we have now for other forms of institutionalized discrimination.
