This Is Going To Hurt Me More Than You……Quite Possibly True

“…they recommend an alternative triage system they called “the complete lives system, which prioritizes younger people who have not yet lived a complete life.” Their ‘complete life’ principle also purportedly includes prognosis, lottery and instrumental value principles.”

deathThese people did not just pop out of a horror movie closet or Nazi facility. They must have quite a heritage of theory and no doubt academic instruction or indoctrination. This is frightening stuff. I know doctors play God. I sat last week and listened to my mom’s oncologist talk about quality of life if the leukemia progresses into her marrow depleted of white platelets. Not totally his choice as he explained the messy limited options. Partly ours to think about…definitely my befuddled mom’s. But, an unspoken factor was insurance authorization for chemo for an 86 y/o woman. Still mentally sharp but physically fragile. Now it is obvious in the future my mom will have no options. Quality of life will be morphine, if she is lucky or a slow drip to the other side. Perhaps a new form of what R.J. Rummel called ‘DEMOCIDE

Pundit and Pundette as well as Malkin are doing a great job tracking this horror story.
