Skip to comments.A doctor and medical ethicist argues life after 75 is not worth living (Ezekiel Emanuel keeps at it)

In October 2014, Ezekiel Emanuel published an essay in the Atlantic called Why I Hope to Die at 75. Because Emanuel is a medical doctor and chair of the University of Pennsylvanias department of medical ethics and health policy, as well as a chief architect of Obamacare, the article stirred enormous controversy.
Emanuel vowed to refuse not only heroic medical interventions once he turned 75, but also antibiotics and vaccinations. His argument: older Americans live too long in a diminished state, raising the question of, as he put it, whether our consumption is worth our contribution.
Emanuel was born into a combative clan. One brother, Rahm, recently completed two terms as the controversial mayor of Chicago; another brother, Ari, is a high-profile Hollywood agent. But even given his DNA, Emanuels death wish was a provocative argument from a medical ethicist and health-care expert.
Emanuel, now 62, talked with me about the social implications of longevity research and why he isnt a fan of extending life spans. I was particularly curious to get his reaction to several promising new anti-aging drugs.

The complete lives system eugenicist speaks.
How old is HE?
61. Global warming will destroy the Earth by then.
Is it ironic that the euthanizing-eugenicist is a Jew?
Didn’t that work against them at some point in history?...
I have been reading right and left about all kinds of anti-aging research and new drugs/protocols. The elite want to live forever.
Only Lefties hate life. The doctor needs to go to church more often.
Ezekiel is the kind of person who has enjoyed NOTHING in his worthless life.
There is much to enjoy if you are not consumed by hatred.
What a family the Emanuels were at holiday time.
Avoid this kind of people like the plague. They have nothing to offer but GLOOM AND DOOM.
Pretty sad for them.
Wow, he brings up useless eaters again.
He probably gets blood transfusions and stem cell injections.
Take care of your mitochondria and you should live longer...
Speak for your self you Democrat Communist slug.
Devaluing human life in terms of economics. How long before the measurement of IQ determines who shall live or die? Hitler loved ideas like this.
Quick. Lets get this article to RBG....
Im well over that age, and let be the first to say this guy is full of shit!
And is he giving this advice to RBG? What a jerk.
If this “doc” would keep his flabby ass in good physical shape, perhaps he wouldn’t need any medication at 75.
“How old is HE?”
What the Hell does he know? He has very low expectations for himself.
According to this fool, I have nothing left to live for.
Well, this past year, I filed for 6 patents, published a physics textbook and I’m working on another.
Two days ago, I phoned my aunt who was out jogging at the time. She’s in her 90s.
I wouldn’t to a word that comes out of the mouth of Ezekiel Emanuel. He’s a moron not worthy of an intelligent audience.
The Left continues to declare that there is no God; therefore, they are gods deciding when life should be created (abortion) and when life should end (75). They believe they can control the planet and have determined they are the Supreme beings.
This is the great delusion. No different than the Garden where the serpent declared “eat and you will be like God”.
With that attitude you are not going to make old bones.
Better get in shape...Here's a couple of clues:
Lessons on food, life and longevity from the Greek island of Ikaria, the island of longevity....where people forget to die.
Enjoy ...Spokeshave (age 77)
