Bravo........I think I'm gonna be sick
Talk about blatant ageism.
First off, in the the heart transplant scenario you mentioned, there's a good chance the 97 year old would be disqualified for surgery because of other health conditions that would make general anesthesia dangerous. But suppose that person is healthy enough to undergo transplant surgery and a donor heart is found? If that person and their family deem the benefits greater than the risks of the procedure, who the hell is anyone to say they're not deserving of their right to live if that treatment would save their life? That donor heart isn't going to do anyone else any good if it doesn't match another recipient on the transplant list or if the other match can't be cleared for the procedure.
You suggest that the elderly are parasites living off the rest of us. It's a damn good thing your parents and grandparents didn't feel that way about their own children. Those people have contributed to society all their lives, and now just because their bodies are wearing out, some people want to throw them away like so much garbage. What a selfish, ungrateful attitude! You say that the elderly aren't worth saving; that they aren't important enough because they don't contribute to society. I suggest asking those whose lives were touched by the good that these people have done over the years how important they think that person is.
