Future News: Americans to Health Holiday for Stem Cell Treatment

Funny story written by Inhopeless

Saturday, 18 December 2010

Published 2014 - WASHINGTON, D.C. & LONDON - Stem cell treatment, first attempted in 2010, and fully tested in 2012, is now a live-saving procedure.

Except for Americans.

The US government has banned stem-cell treatment and research in any hospital or facility, making hundreds of Autism, spinal damage, limb deformation/loss and other sufferers, 'vocation' to Britain for the treatment.

The first ever ward to be dedicated to stem cell treatment was in Selly Oak hospital in West Birmingham, mostly to treat soldiers in battle, but was used for civilian purposes as well.

Today, there are over 200 hundred such wards and clinics, just for using embryonic stem-cell treatments, which is outlawed in all 50 states.

As of 2012, nearly 500 thousand Americans have travelled to the UK, which is the only nation to fully legalise the treatment, for a range of conditions, including mental conditions, body part loss, AIDS, cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other treatments.

"We are right to decry this heathen medicine!" said an anti-stem cell campaigner. "This will destroy god's gift of a new life!"

Many thousands of poorer Americans have no hope of travelling to cure their ailments.

"Daddy lost his arm fighting tooth and nail for this nation," said Sarah Daniels, "But the government wont let us get that treatment to grow his limb back. They [the government] are leaving a war hero in agony."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
