Left Wing Intolerance Across The Pond

And now for something really different …

… an example of left-wing intolerance over in merry old England.

Consider the case of Edward Atkinson of Norfolk. He’s a 75-year-old anti-abortion activist who recently received a 28-day jail sentence for sending abortion photos to a hospitals' staff. Even though the staff performed abortions, they were offended, and the hospital took legal action.

The jail sentence was not enough. It just so happened that Edward was on a waiting list for a hip replacement at the hospital. So, you guessed it. For good measure the hospital removed him from the waiting list for surgery.

Now that may be a warning for all believers in socialized medicine. If the government controls vital services it can deny you those services if they don’t like your point of view.

But don’t you worry dear reader. Such things could never happen here. Left wing intolerance in the states is a cut above left wing intolerance over there.

No, no. What happens over there could never happen here.
