Abstract

The author focuses on L. J. Schneiderman's article "Rationing just medical care" and suggests that the proposal creates different entitlements for productive citizens and nonproductive people such as chronically ill children and childless older people. He states that decent minimums should be uniform and set at an objective sufficiency and non-arbitrary threshold. He comments that he can't see how Schneiderman's belief that productive patients have priority over others can be justified
