The Architect Speaks
Ezekiel Emanuel, ObamaCare architect, Ph.D, bioethicist, Harvard M.D., a brilliant man who displays his intelligence by continuing to defend ObamaCare. He is the president's top healthcare adviser.
He is famous for promoting the idea that medical resources should be primarily directed in support of adolescents and young adults. The elderly and infants should take a back seat, especially if medical resources become scarce. Many have accused Ezekiel of advocating a 'bioethical' stance that would allow the very old and the very young to die, untreated, in order to focus on productive members of society in whom we've invested time and money, i.e., a system of rationing.
ObamaCare will doubtless cause the scarcity Ezekiel predicts. As an architect of the law, one wonders if Ezekiel is intentionally creating scarcity as another way to install population control without saying so. Thanks to ObamaCare, rationing will ensue along with increases in abortion, infanticide, and elder euthanasia.
Ezekiel's approach is called "Complete Lives System." In a paper published in 2009 the good doctor states: "We recommend an alternative system -- the complete lives system -- which prioritizes younger people who have not yet lived a complete life and also incorporates prognosis, save the most lives, lottery, and instrumental value principles."
Basically, young lives are valued highly as productive useful lives, so if you save one adolescent, it is equivalent to saving 20 or so old folks. Therefore, guess who gets the short end of the hypodermic needle. This system is already in place in Great Britain.
Also, the good doctor has boldly discussed the fate of the disabled, given their less-than-productive status.
Ezekiel epitomizes the secular/atheist mind. With no regard for transcendent moral authority, he gives himself permission to play god, picking and choosing who will receive treatment, who will live, and who will die. Sebelius and Obama are willing accomplices, of course.
In the meantime, it is obvious this so-called 'bioethicist' conjures his own set of 'ethics' out of thin air, supposedly based on research. However, he is no Ezekiel, and he rejects Emanuel.
Zeke, the Great Physician reminds you, you cannot heal thyself.
