Performance-Enhancing Healthcare

The Daily Mail UK reports yet another mind-boggling tale from the wacky world of socialized medicine:

A paedophile with a 30-year history of abusing children is being prescribed Viagra on the NHS – and there is nothing the authorities can do to stop him.

Roger Martin, 71, merely has to visit his GP to obtain the libido-enhancing drug, even though experts warn it will enable him to continue preying on children despite his age.

The probation officers who oversee Martin are powerless to interfere with the administration of prescription drugs.

He does not have to tell his GP about his criminal past and even if he does, doctors cannot take convictions into account.

Martin suffers from numerous illnesses including diabetes, for which Department of Health guidelines say Viagra can be prescribed.

He has forced himself on a string of youngsters and his latest assault was on an 11-year-old girl last year.

NHS criteria may balk at 71-year-olds who need hip replacements, but “performance-enhancing” drugs to help convicted pedophile rapist seniors maintain their “alternative lifestyle” are another story.
