The need for Social Healthcare


Just seen this images shared by a Friend on Facebook. Such a simple but powerful message. This is why we should all be thankful for the NHS, even those of us like myself that can afford private health cover in addition. There will always be a need to cover these sorts of health issues. I’m glad someone has created this image because there is a lot of fear mongering about the healthcare in the US media. It’s not a health care issue really, it’s a moral one. Do we want to, as a society, let people exist in pain and die because they cannot afford care?

16 year old fights for Religious Freedom in school


Just read about this amazing story. A young lady aged 16 took her school to court after failing to convince the local school board to remove a banner entitled ‘School Prayer’ from their gym.
