Down on the Pharm

If it makes Leftists mad, something has to be RIGHT about it.

Mr. Houben is NOT a Vegetable

Here's a reminder of our extreme limitations in determining whether a human life is worth living.   We are simply NOT good at it, and should stay out of the business.

Rom Houben has lived 23 years of his life trapped inside his body, unable to communicate, yet fully conscious.  He was unable to convey his condition to the physicians, and only recently with new technology was it determine that he was not in a persistent vegetative state.

This man is still quite limited, though now able to communicate with other via computer, and able to read books.  Mr Houben apparently has NO intention nor desire to die soon.  He considers himself to have been reborn, with the discovery that he is conscious.

Would such a man, with his huge will to live, survive the coming death panels which will necessarily accompany government dictated health care  inefficiencies, and reactive "cost containment"??
