Voting Still Open in the Year End Poll

Hit this link and then vote for the likeliest bioethics outcome for 2007. Of the five choices, so far, 44% of you think “Futile Care Theory will be upheld by a court, which will rule that doctors should decide when the time has come to die.” I am not that pessimistic. I actually think there is a fair chance to defeat futile care theory. I voted with 30% of you who believe “President Bush’s ESCR funding policy will be overturned.” And I agree with all of you that there is no way “The Netherlands will be condemned in the UN for legalizing infanticide.” It should be, but “should” and six bits will buy you a cup of coffee. (Actually, today it is more like twelve bits, twenty-four bits at Starbuck’s.)
