Of course they could. Many doctors deny tubal ligation for women without children even though they know for sure they don't want them.

I took a friend to a state medical clinic for some prenatal care some years ago in Riverside County. She kept getting bumped to the back of the line because the staff served those of Hispanic decent first. If you didn't speak Spanish, look Hispanic, tough poopoo. I took an hour of that before I marched up to the smug little chica at the desk and demanded my friend be seen. After some lame excuse, and her observing my bestest mad face, she made sure we went in next.

Oh, and I heard some figures the other day regarding how many illegals are receiving organ transplants, courtesy of the taxpayers. Sorry I don't have the numbers, but one is too many!

Even her own relatives condemn California as a state just the same as Mexico and went on to integrate with society.

It's a sad story.

No doubt these assistance programs were put in place by wrong headed liberals whom think it's the taxpayers responsibility to pick up the tab for the illegals.

Read the link below at your own risk, as it may get you angry enough to have an aneurysm and seeing as how many ER's are clogged with non English speaking illegals, you could expire while waiting for your number to be called.
Organ transplants for immigrants stir debate in Calif.

Late last month Puente learned of another, little-known option for patients with certain healthcare needs. If she notified US Citizenship and Immigration Services that she was in the country illegally, state health officials might grant her full coverage through Medi-Cal, the state health services assistance program for the poor. Puente did so, her benefits were restored, and she is awaiting a fourth transplant at UCLA

This is beyond belief! Take time to read the entire story, it’s outrageous.

Quote:
Eight years ago, she and her family moved to Kentucky, where a friend said there was more work and were fewer Mexican immigrants bidding down the wages for unskilled jobs.
This can't be true. We keep hearing from pro-illegals that they don't depress wages. Who knew?

Quote:
They went to night school to learn English because few people in Lexington speak Spanish.

“We’re in a state where there’s nothing but Americans. The police control the streets. It’s clean, no gangs. California now resembles Mexico – everyone thinks like in Mexico. California’s broken.”
Oh, so they had to learn English; they were forced to assimilate.

Quote:
Girls from Mexican-immigrant families in Kentucky, she saw, were in their mid-20s and still didn’t have children. “I said, ‘Damn, that’s weird,’ ” Kelly said. “The girls right here in Los Angeles are like in Mexico. There are girls that are 14, they got kids.”
