Injustices with an Angel!!

If Angel Luis had been born in the US, his family would have been able to file a malpractice lawsuit, but he was born in Cuba, where there is no justice and a healthcare system that is criminal at best. Born with tumor in his liver, had his leg amputated during surgery and had in intestines perforated and had to use a colonoscopy bag for 11 months. He is only two years old!! Angel lives in extreme poverty and lacks proper medical care.

I wonder how useful idiot Michael Moore would explain this one. Angel's mother writes a blog, "Injusticias con un Angel" (Injustices with an Angel), where she documents the day to day struggle to help her son survive in a country with no future.

He has a page on facebook and he needs donations....
