Are not the elderly just as addicted to expensive medical
technology as a heroine addict is addicted to his drug?
Likewise, why does society have any more of an obligation
to support one habit than it does the other?

Perhaps the main distinction is that we all expect to 
grow old, but few of us expect to become heroine addicts.
