    They regret chemo because chemo is an utterly miserable experience and it's not a guarantee you won't die anyway, and can sometimes kill you faster than the disease alone.
    I'm quite aware of that. Sometimes people who take chemo actually see their cancer go into remission, too. Again, I'm not seeing how "regret" factors into this discussion or cancer treatments.
    prisoners aren't offered "cancer care insurance", they're offered general medical care.  An inmate can get a freaking wart removed at taxpayer expense.
    If that's true, then I betray my own ignorance. I was under the impression penal medical care was provided only for potentially life-threatening problems. Thanks for correcting me.

    If you can get a wart removed in prison, then sure, I don't see why hormonal therapy shouldn't be covered.

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby
