Instead of calling it suicide, it would euphemistically be known as "Voluntary Transitioning."
Now we have Ezekiel Emanuel, Ari and Rahm's brother, making quite a splash with his article "Why I Hope to Die at 75" in the Atlantic. While he doesn't plan on suicide, he will stop receiving medical treatment. He says people deteriorate, and are less productive and creative. So why stay around so long?
The former White House aid's article makes Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet's piece on Casey Research last December all the more interesting. She pointed out that Mr. Emanuel has written plenty about "The Complete Lives System" which:
makes crystal clear that physicians must not focus on the individual patient. Instead, medical care should be allocated based on the patient's usefulness to the "collective good." If you're too old, or too young, or your ailment is too complicated, society is better off letting you die rather than paying a doctor to heal you.
