Likewise the idea that part of healthcare reforms will require people to be forced to get microchips for some vague and evil government purpose is all fear. This is just the latest chapter in the whole microchip conspiracy, much like a few years ago when people freaked out because they though there were microchips in swine flu vaccines. Now there may be some microchips involved somehow like in health cards or something similar. Something that will help improve the quality of medical care given and make things more effective.
"Now determining the chances of a patient's survival rate and what treatment options are open to them is a part of the medical process. For some their time is up and there's no hope of them surviving, so it is resonable for doctors to suggest that nothing more can be done."
The element that you are leaving out, and that and that those republican scare mongers were refering to, and rightly so, is that it will actually be a formula based more on monetary concerns than if the patient is saveable. I think the concern is it may go something like this. 63 year old needs most of large intestine removed, he retires and will be living on social security in two years and in that time will only make 1/10th of what this surgery costs - death pathway. 24 year old needs same surgery could be expected to recover and work to age 65 - no death pathway. If you really don't believe this is a legitimate concern or good question to be asking then I just don't know what say.
