My comment, posted on the CDC’s Facebook page dated November 4th (“We must focus on the most vulnerable and be ready to help them.” CDC Principal Deputy Director Dr. Anne Schuchat):
Speaking of the most vulnerable in our society…
#DearCDC: Access to pain treatment is a human right.
(2010) Access to pain treatment as a human right. Summary: According to international human rights law, countries have to provide pain treatment medications as part of their core obligations under the right to health; failure to take reasonable steps to ensure that people who suffer pain have access to adequate pain treatment may result in the violation of the obligation to protect against cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment.
#DearCDC: How many lawyers does it take to protect the CDC?
#DearCDC: How many pain patients does it take to sue the CDC for cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment? Just one.
#DearCDC: How many CDC employees does it take to screw in a light bulb? None. They prefer to remain in the dark.
