Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel argues we should hope to die at 75

Those on the left continue to think the earth is overpopulated by humans.  Euthanasia  and abortion are two of their key
Dr Ezekiel Emanuel
components on keeping the population down,   

Remember when all laughed at Sarah Palin for pointing out that Obamacare would lead to rationing and death panels?

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who was involved in the creation of Obamacare, is suggesting we should die by age 75.

In case you missed it, Dr. Emanuel recently wrote a scary piece for The Atlantic in which he said that he hopes to die by age 75.

Why I Hope to Die at 75
 An argument that society and families—and you—will be better off if nature takes its course swiftly and promptly
 That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.
 This preference drives my daughters crazy. It drives my brothers crazy. My loving friends think I am crazy. They think that I can’t mean what I say; that I haven’t thought clearly about this, because there is so much in the world to see and do. To convince me of my errors, they enumerate the myriad people I know who are over 75 and doing quite well. They are certain that as I get closer to 75, I will push the desired age back to 80, then 85, maybe even 90.
  I am sure of my position. Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences and milestones, of time spent with our spouse and children. In short, it deprives us of all the things we value.
 But here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.

I wonder if Dr Ezekile Emanuel will do the right thing and kill himself on his 75th Birthday?
