TORONTO, Mar 30 (LSN) – Ontario’s PC government announced this week that the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) has delisted certain medical services.  Beginning Wednesday, patients will have to pay for operations such as removing warts and facial disfigurements. Dermatologist Dr. Neil Shear reacted with indignation to the decision, saying, “What am I supposed to tell a guy who’s got a face like a monster: `I have to charge you?’”

Observers note the decision means the Ontario government would deprive the poor and disfugured of potential relief, and that few Ontarians would support such callousness.  Pro-lifers note that the government also continues to force Ontario taxpayers to fully fund abortion—which is never medically necessary—to the tune of $25 million per year, in spite of the objection of the majority of Ontario residents.
