Thank you for your article, it is very thought provoking. However I disagree with number 5 – which is mostly due to the interest in cost as opposed to life. Life no matter what its quality or level of difficulty should always be preferred over death. It is very sad to see that healthcare which was once a vocation and freely offered without payment has become an money-generating business with cost being prioritized over care, true care that comes from love for life and compassion for the suffering.
