Just because people can survive and recover from many medical maladies does not guarantee survivors can afford to keep themselves alive. If the heart attacks doesn't kill people, the medications causing organ failures will.

A friend was a victim of health care murder and no one was held accountable or responsible. Many doctors in Utah exchange program had diagnosed her terminal disease but out of 4 doctors none of them would put it in her medical records becasue she had no insurance and the state denied her medical services. She suffered in miserable pain and starvation, dehydration, to die from a slow mummification where her skin became a leather shell. After her death without autopsy they finally annotated her disease in her medical history. The hospitals and doctors got paid from state funds and that is all health care is about, share holders.

You can praise medical industry all you want but they are too heartless and selfish don't give a hoot about the quality of life they leave behind if people live beyond designated termination dates.
