  • This is what I want to use for the Voicethread. Say that it gives a good sense of the passions on both sides of the debate. Also talks about socialism. As them what side the Church is on here and what someone representing the Catholic view would say to some of the other protestors. Say to use the other video "Sick in America" as background to viewing this one. In class, perhaps do the thing with the eligibility for Medicaid Passions can be helpful, but they can also blind us. Can you determine what sorts of things are behind the passion you see on this video about a topic that ordinarily tends to be pretty dry (health insurance!)? And can you identify blind spots on one or the other side (or both) based upon your reading for Tuesday, the video Sick Around America, and our discussions about social & economic injustice in general?

    • The right to life does not end at birth.
    • You can’t welcome life into the world and then not care about what happens to it after it gets here.
      • In short: “We must defend the right to life of the weakest among us; we must also be supportive of the quality of life of the powerless among us: the old and the young, the hungry and the homeless, the undocumented immigrant and the unemployed worker, the sick, the disabled and the dying.” (Cardinal Bernardin)
  • “ In the end, the kind of health care we tolerate reflects the kind of society we are or want to be.” — Dr. Edmund Pelligrino (XP, p. 139)
