    From the Calgary Herald:
    Lange said local physicians had been closely monitoring Jepp’s pregnancy and were anticipating her newborns (4) would require care at Foothills’ neonatal intensive care unit.
    But when Jepp began experiencing labour symptoms last Friday, the unit at Foothills (Canada) was over capacity with several unexpected pre-term births.
    There was no room at any other Canadian neonatal intensive care unit, forcing CHR officials to look south (US) of the border.
    Jepp was transported to Benefis hospital in Great Falls,(MT) last Friday — making her the fifth Alberta woman to be transferred south of the border this year because of neonatal shortages in Calgary.
    ~ Canada’s backup system is in Montana. Americans spend 15% of their income on health care. That’s why Great Falls has enough neo-natal units to handle quadruple births – and a “universal health” nation doesn’t. Just a thought.

    didn’t the boys say this so called Health care for poor kids would do the job for the little kids of the world so who will pay? not one third world person but if you are not a third world person YOU WILL PAY!
    Bush is a fool and the system wants you dead or inside a third world hell.
