endgame

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 02, 2005

Grim reading from the NOLA Weblog about New Orleans hospitals, including first-hand accounts of food-and-water "triage" and neonatal deaths. The ethical controversies that have been rehearsed in the abstract in the past forty years are now appallingly concrete, and the physicians -- and citizens -- formed by those ethics have the decisions in their hands.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
