Isn't that argument a mainstay of the left's pro-abortion argument? After all, the decision to terminate a pregnancy is really a "health care decision," we are told. It is not one so laden with profound human values that the community at large should be involved.
But the left's national health care argument seems to be that we must concede to the government major "health care decisions" when they deal with the treatment of post-born people.
There is a consistency here, however. The outcome of each approach involves a higher probability of death for the vulnerable subject.
