Harsh values of health care rationing

Wesley Smith has written an excellent blog about health care rationing in Oregon.

The Oregon Health plan is attempting to justify their policy of denying medical treatment to people who are very sick, but offering them palliative care or assisted suicide.

The Oregon Health plan can say that their intention in offering assisted suicide rather than effective but expensive medical treatment has been mis-interpreted, but how can you misinterpret being offered assisted suicide in the place of medical treatment.
