Steyn to the rescue

How convenient, when Blue Virginia decides to post about health care, that Mark Steyn hits the corner with the latest baby news from Canada.
1. Baby goes bye-bye. A baby is born premature in Hamilton. But there's no room in the preemie ward, either in Hamilton or nearby Ontario hospitals. So the baby gets shipped to Buffalo.
It gets better. The parents don't have a passport, so they can't follow their baby.
2. Do-it-yourself birthing. At 5 a.m. in a Montreal hospital, the woman's water breaks and the contractions keep coming. They push the button for help, but the baby arrives before the nurse does.
Debunk these, bunky.
