Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Information & Organizations

Are you curious about how universal health care works in Canada? Here is a great what’s what about health care in Canada:

It seems I’ve managed to join yet another organization. Despite contention that perhaps I have too much on my plate, I am greatly intrigued by this particular network. The Minnesota Parent Leadership Network is: “A parent-driven and family-affirming children’s mental health system of care.” Their vision? “To connect, educate and support parent leaders to command change, demand solutions and transform systems of care.”

Sound like someone you know?

Speaking of organizations, if you live in Minnesota and you support and believe in the benefits of single payer universal health coverage, consider joining forces with the MUHCC (Minnesota Universal Health Care Coalition.)
