Health care costs are dominated by the last year of life. How can we encourage Americans to die with dignity?
Thomas Mooney commented
The Government should begin a "War on Aging"and if successful your question becomes superfluous!!!
This is a valid but touchy area. We're not trying to "off" grandma, but to let an individual nearing the end of life be given a range of choices from "sustain life at all costs" to "depart when life can no longer be worthwhile."
