Herewith we share three articles published here and there over the last week. They have certain elements in common: all deal with a medical matter, none is of the urgent "fiery wreck" genre, none involves gamboling kittens headlined "Awwww!"

We're not certain exactly what else they have in common. But we think that, taken together, they're something like an artist's first pencil outlines of what will be an oil portrait depicting the future.

From The Guardian: "Doctors back denial of treatment for smokers and the obese."

 From The Daily News: "Doctors advised parents to abort girl born with deformed face, breathing troubles."

 Also from The Daily News: "Transgender woman denied mammogram wins battle with health insurance company."
