Don't treat the old and unhealthy, say doctors

Telegraph reported Doctors are calling for NHS treatment to be withheld from patients who are too old or who lead unhealthy lives.

What if you are a conservative?
Smokers, heavy drinkers, the obese and the elderly should be barred from receiving some operations, according to doctors, with most saying the health service cannot afford to provide free care to everyone.
That is the problem with goverment controlled health care.
Fertility treatment and "social" abortions are also on the list of procedures that many doctors say should not be funded by the state.
I agree with that par.
Daily Pundit blogged If you give control of your medical care to the state, then the state controls the medical care you receive.
And the government does such a wonderful job of every other thing it tries. Why not a hospital run like the DMV. Or like Katrina.
