Pope Francis: “A nation’s health care system can not be run simply as a business because human lives are at stake…If there is a sector in which the ‘throwaway culture demonstrates its most painful consequences, it is the health care sector…Protecting human life from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death means that money alone cannot guide political…choices in health care…The increasing lack of health care among the poorest segments of the population, due to lack of access to care, must leave no one indifferent.”
