Do you agree with THIS? this guy decides who lives who dies Ezekiel Emanuel?not me opt me out! Are children more valuable than infants?

he supports a “complete lives” system of health care. He wrote that the so-called “complete lives” approach “supports modifying the youngest-first principle by prioritizing adolescents and young adults over infants. Adolescents have received substantial education and parental care, investments that will be wasted without a complete life. Infants by contrast, have not yet received these investments.

  • Yes, I did see his essay, and it does indeed say that.
    To be entirely intelligent about it, he WAS talking about scenarios in an emergency shortage of money or medicines or medical personnel. This was not a program he is proposing that the gov't adopt as its standard for health care.

    That said, it is worrisome to read these thoughts written without any corresponding expression of how horrible such measures would be. ... and to realize that they have been written by a man who is the President's advisor, and brother of the very powerful Rahm Emanuel.

    It is not altogether reassuring that these ideas are "only" in case of shortages - in view of the excessive deficits and debt to foreign countries, and crashing productivity in America, shortages are very LIKELY in the near future.

  • Do you ever re-read what you write after you've taken a deep breath?
