Not sure what to think about this article; is this this doctor’s personal wish for himself or is this article/journalist trying to publicize his way of thinking to get support for future health care implementations?


While emphasis on valuing and enjoying the quality of life is a part of this article I like, I believe everyone deserves to live as much as they can, as much as they want. I also do not agree that people beyond 75 is a burden to the society – when did we stop seeing the contributions of our senior citizens to ourselves, our families, and our societies? I bet cost of medical care is a player in this kind of thinking; as if people over 75 have not contributed to it over the decades.
