Very funny post.

How many of those people who died from accidental gunfire would have died if they didn't have guns in the first place? The number would not be 0 but I'm guessing it would be lower than the number of people who die without doctors.
Eventually, we are all worm food, one way or the other, so they all would have died, just not at that time. Personally, i would rather face an armed assailant than go to the doctor; i don't like taking my car to the mechanic either.

An analysis of more than 7 million recent discharge records from hospitals in 28 states reveals that a group of 18 medical injuries that occur during hospitalization may account for 2.4 million extra hospital days, $9.3 billion in excess charges, and almost 32,600 attributable deaths in the United States annually. The most serious offender is sepsis, a severe infection that sometimes develops after surgery. Sepsis occurs in approximately 11 per 1000 cases and is associated with the greatest increases in length of stay (11 days), charges ($57,727), and in-hospital mortality (22 percent of all sepsis cases are fatal.).

Screw Doctors, lets ban bacteria!
I confess that I have no desire to confess.
