South Side trauma center, sequestration effects, relationship spending: Chat Room

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

On Monday's Chat Room, Sun-Times Splash Editor Susanna Negovan and lifestyle consultant Rochelle Trotter spoke on how the sequestration budget cuts will actually affect the public and whether woman and men should be playing sports together, and whether someone should be able to sue an ex for things bought while they were dating.

Veronica Morris Moore lives in a Chicago neighborhood with one of the highest crime and homicide rates, yet there's no trauma center for victims of violence within a 30 minute drive (10 miles).

The University of Chicago, the closest hospital, admits kids up to age 17 at their trauma center. Moore's friend, 18-year-old Damian Turner, wasn't admitted and died of his injuries.

After he passed, Moore and some of her peers started a movement to get a trauma center built on the South Side, and she joined Good Day to talk about their efforts.
