Health Crisis Affecting Air Travel

A Spanish speaking women was recently detained at Los Angeles International Airport this week after sending her one-month-old grandson through the X-Ray machine at a security checkpoint.

Airport officials say this is not uncommon due to the rising health costs and lack of free clinics in the City Of Angels.

"After questioning the woman, we determined that she was fed up with her grandsons crying and she took matters into her own hands after being turned away from several medical facilities due to her having no health insurance."

Doctors at a local hospital where the baby was transfered said the boy was suffering from colic and offered to treat the child for free.

Officials from the California Health department were unavailable for comment.

as disturbing as that may seem. come on, atleast women like her are livening up the world. seeing only bagages go through x-ray machines has become so cliche.

Hey, when visitors come into our prison, if they have a baby, a diaper change is necessary. The corrections officer will freeze the gate, and I'm left waiting to go home for the day. We need baby x-ray machines at my place of employment. No more drugs or weapons will be smuggled inside a dirty diaper. And why should us taxpayers pay for a fresh diaper?

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

How sad it is that due to circumstance, children suffer unnecessarily. Healthcare should be free for every child, no matter what. This is a disgrace.
