Disgusting Fat Bodies Angry They Had To Get Medical Treatment With Horses

Posted by Casey on April 5, 2007


Hey … if you weren’t too fat for the hospital you wouldn’t have been turned away.

Rio de Janeiro hospitals have been sending obese people to share medical test equipment with horses at the local race track, drawing complaints from activists who say the practice is humiliating.

“When people weigh more than the standard equipment can support they have to be directed to the Jockey Club, which is the only place in Rio where they have the appropriate equipment,” a spokeswoman for the Rio state health secretariat said on Wednesday.

Now let’s bring out the feel good human rights group to defend the fatty’s feelings.

Rosimere Lima da Silva, head of the Group for Salvaging Self-Esteem and Citizenship of the Obese (Graco), said many patients feel embarrassed to go there.

“The obese patients already suffer from a lot of prejudice and having to be treated where animals are is not helping their self-esteem. Many simply refuse to go,” she said.

Now for the protest.

Graco staged a small protest on Tuesday outside the state legislative assembly and met some legislators to try to oblige hospitals to buy stronger equipment, including stretchers and wheelchairs for the obese, and to authorise more hospitals to perform stomach stapling surgeries.

Stomach stapling surgery eh? You know what that means … don’t you? No self control … not a medical condition. Being fat is not a disease unless you have a physical ailment that prevents you from losing weight. No hospital should be required to cater to these people for non-emergency services.
