Should End-of-Life Care Be Rationed? -- Just because we can extend life, should we? If health care is a scarce resource, limited by its availability and our ability to pay for it, should government step in to ration care? In other words, how much is an extra month of life worth?

DeCamp Professor of Bioethics, Princeton UniversityAgainst: Sally Pipes, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pacific Research Institute (based in San Francisco, CA); and Ken Connor, Chairman, Center for a Just Society
