My wife, Barbara, is a physical therapist who specializes in “home health”. She drives all over the county to see her patients. She works with others who do speech therapists, occupational therapy, and nursing. Many of the patients are on Medicaid/Medicare so in many cases there is government payment for the services. The Danes have a new branch of government supported therapy which the government is also paying for. The next time she complains about her job I’ll suggest she could change her therapy modalities and perhaps go into private practice in Denmark. On second thought, that probably wouldn’t be a very good suggestion to make. Via Clayton Cramer:
Danes take care of disabled to new level
Danish activists for the disabled are staunchly defending a government campaign that pays sex workers to provide sex once a month for disabled people.
Opposition parties call the program, officially known as ”Sex, irrespective of disability,” immoral.
”We spend a large proportion of our taxes rescuing women from prostitution. But at the same time we officially encourage carers to help contact with prostitutes,” said Social-Democrat spokesperson Kristen Brosboel.
Responded Stig Langvad of the country’s Disabled Association: ”The disabled must have the same possibilities as other people. Politicians can debate whether prostitution should be allowed in general, instead of preventing only the disabled from having access to it.”
