How Liberalism Is Destroying Public Healthcare

July 1st, 2022 | RR

As our healthcare system faces unprecedented struggles, there are glaring cultural problems that are making it worse. Healthcare costs have risen with higher immigration and the pandemonium of the past two years, but other factors are often overlooked when talking about the struggles facing our public system. Social and cultural liberalism are putting weight on our healthcare system in ways no one is willing to discuss. The following contains portions of a previous article on another subject that can be found here

Abstinence And Public Health

Refraining from sexual activity is safer than promiscuity. Free abortions encourage unsafe sex and promiscuity by giving partners that extra choice—one that comes after several other choices have been made to result in pregnancy. This sounds archaic to some, but the evidence to support abstinence as the healthiest lifestyle choice is undeniable. From a cultural perspective, teaching and encouraging monogamy and abstinence until marriage could reduce overall healthcare costs across the country.

In 2018, Canada saw a 40% increase in sexually transmitted diseases over ten years. Overall, rates of chlamydia have been increasing by 5% annually since 2009. Since 2009, rates of gonorrhea have been increasing by 9% a year. In 2018, there were more than 30,000 cases of reported gonorrhea in Canada.

Since 2009, the rate of syphilis infections in Canada has tripled. Since 2009, syphilis transmissions have increased by 259%.

In 2018, there was an increase in HIV transmissions in Canada from previous years. According to Health Canada, rates of HIV and Hepatitis transmissions in the country are not declining. On average, Canada sees more than 2,000 new HIV transmissions every year, with similar numbers for Hepatitis. 49% of new HIV infections are among sexually active gay men, but up to 25% of transmissions are among heterosexuals, which amounts to approximately 500 new HIV cases per year from heterosexual activities. In total, 33% of new transmissions are heterosexual, but some come from injection drug abuse—which can eventually lead to sexual transmission.

All of these diseases cost money to treat.

If left untreated, many of them lead to severe complications that require hospitalization and expensive procedures. Often enough, infections like chlamydia, HPV and HIV go unnoticed and patients end up requiring expensive treatments and hospitalization. On top of annual abortion costs, which run upwards of $600 each, these diseases and infections put a significant strain on our public healthcare system.

Testing for these diseases also costs money and labour.

Since we're in the realm of trying to refuse the "unclean" health treatments, feminists and women's rights activists have even fewer legs to stand on. Many of them are the same people who have been advocating to exclude and segregate the unclean from the rest of society, up to and including the refusal of health services. The argument that the unclean put a burden on our public healthcare system can be played both ways.

By limiting most abortions, we could return a sense of personal responsibility to couples who choose to engage in risky sexual activities. In return, we might see a gradual decline in promiscuity and unsafe sexual activity across the board, which would then result in a reduction in sexually transmitted diseases. Combined with a culture that promotes and encourages abstinence and monogamy, we could be looking at a significant reduction in healthcare costs over several years.

Further Burdens

Our liberal immigration policies have put undue stress on our system. Spending time in an emergency room or walk-in clinic anywhere in Canada would expose you to an array of cultural diversity. With Canadians in every province finding it increasingly difficult to find a family physician, more are resorting to walk-in clinics, hospital emergencies and rural urgent care centres to deal with common ailments and illnesses. This includes a growing number of immigrants and refugees. 

Average wait-times for emergency rooms and urgent care centres is now exceeding an average of four hours across much of Canada. 

With Canada expected to add 500,000 more immigrants per year, these wait times are going to get a lot worse. Combined with our cultural liberalism, which promotes free love and sexual education as early as grade 2, our healthcare system will continue to face unprecedented challenges in the coming years due to liberal immigration practices. Sexually transmitted disease are on the rise, immigration is on the rise, new biological threats are on the rise and flu seasons are expected to explode. To top it off, poor diets and sedentary lifestyles have risen since 2020 as more people work from home and choose to stay away from crowded parks and facilities. 

Since things have started to return to normal, people have also been reporting more illnesses that are lasting longer. 

Studies have hypothesized something called "immunity debt", which arises when people and children are exposed to fewer pathogens and, therefore, face weakened immunity to common colds and viruses. By the time we reach adolescence, we have been exposed to thousands of pathogens and built strong immunity. However, over the past two years, we have been spending less time in public places, wearing masks and using hand sanitizer. Newborns and children, who often spend their first few years sick and fighting viruses, have been isolated since 2020. 

All of these things are coalescing to produce a perfect storm for Canada's public healthcare system. Within the next few years, the chickens will come home to roost and Canadians will experience the blowback. In British Columbia, it is estimated that one million people cannot find a family doctor. In Alberta and Ontario, one out of four families do not have a family physician. Everywhere and in every province, the crisis is beginning to compound. 

Without enough doctors, liberal immigration and rampant sexual activity threaten to escalate our problems. Without a family doctor, the average Canadian and immigrant is crowding into emergency rooms, walk-in clinics and urgent care centres. This is putting stress on facilities, doctors, nurses and resources. If it continues, the entire system will collapse and Canadians will be forced to fix it with the one thing they fear the most: private healthcare.
