Ad Contest to Promote Mandatory Euthanasia at Age 80

The host says these ads promote an “unthinkable” policy. I think not, alas.   We are not anywhere near there yet, of course–unless one considers age-based health care rationing as a precursor.  But that point aside, these ads pitch how–if we give up on the sanctity/equality of human life–such a policy could conceivably be sold.  Both are chillingly sophisticated.

HT: Bioedge–which should be a weekly reading habit of all SHSers.
