What Can I Say?

  /   Saturday August 31, 2002  

Gosh, I was so busy yesterday that I didn’t get around to blogging. I’m not going to do much better tonight. If you want something to feast on, read this piece by Mark Shea.

There’s another piece available if that wasn’t enough, but this one isn’t too nice. It’s about how HMOs may encourage assisted suicide to save money. In pharmacy school, we had a lot of classes that dealt with the idea that the health care system was going to have to find ways to save money. It scares the living daylights out of me to think of what could happen if assisted suicide becomes legal. Insurance companies may refuse to cover palliative care, stating that euthanasia is available at a much lower price. Given the greed in today’s society, I would not rule this out as a possibility.
