My thoughts exactly! There's too many people on this planet already. Big pharma and the medical profession have extended our lives too much. Of all the 70 & older folk I know, less than 25% enjoy good quality of life; the rest have one worn-out part after another or have run out of money to live much less give it all to a hospital.
I'm in my 60's and if I was diagnosed with terminal cancer tomorrow, I would be okay with that and not try to extend my life a few weeks, months or years. I've lived my life and had one hell of a time! I spent the past 10 years conditioning my wife and other people of my wishes and have detailed notes in my documents file along with my will, life insurance, trust and other important papers. I love my grand children but unlike so many, I have no need to live vicariously through them. I don't care to travel and my body has now limited my enjoyment of motorcycling, snowmobiling and boating - the very things I've lived for.
That said, NO I don't want to pay to extend the lives of other people, many that don't deserve it. Thank goodness I made it through life without a major issue. I used to have pretty good health coverage through my work but thanks to the obamanation of AAC, out-of-pocket costs have gone up triple digits while coverage has gone way down. On the other hand, maybe I should get a sex change operation since that's covered - thanks again Obama.
People THINK - don't be greedy and make room for the next generation!
