I emphasize poverty, illness, and lack of insurance because I believe these three factors give many healthcare "professionals" license to mistreat anyone. But I don't believe it is coincidence that this woman and Edith Rodriguez are women of color. To quote the title of this article, the American health care system is failing women of color.
