Arizona Denies Transplants to Medicaid Patients
bobsnewheart posted:
Cutting funds that causes people to die is no way to solve budget problems. That's what Arizona did when Governor Jan Brewer signed a measure that cut organ transplant funding for 98 Medicaid patients.

This unconsciouable display of cruelty cannot be allowed to stand. It must be reversed or before we know it the same thing will be happening in every state and you or your loved ones could be affected.

Organ Transplant Initiative (OTI) is a Facebook group with a simple mission, "To ensure that anyone who needs an organ transplant can get one."

One of our major initiatives right now is to reverse the inhuman decision made by the state of Arizona. Please join us in our battle by becoming a member!/group.php?gid=152655364765710
