The Secretary for Health and Human Services has decided that the life of an eleven-year-old girl requiring an adult lung transplant, is expendable. Despite the pleading of the family's Republican Congressman to make an exception in the girl's case for receiving adult lungs, Sebelius has decided that the girl is not entitled to the life-saving procedure.
Of course, this should come as no shock from an administration that places little value in human life or potential human life. This is merely an indication of the heartless and inhumane treatment we should expect from the HHS as it administers Obamacare. So, take a deep breath, folks. It may be the last one the government allows you to take.

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to allow 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan to be moved to the adult lung transplant list, giving her a better chance of receiving a potentially life-saving transplant.
The case played out amid growing controversy with Sebelius in the spotlight. Several right-wing blogs and commentators depicted her as a one-woman “death panel.” The child’s mother said Sebelius was choosing to let children die.
