The Universal Desire For Universal Health

You’d be hard-pressed these days, at least here in the U.S., to come up with a more divisive subject than universal health care, but probably just as hard-pressed to find a more universal desire than good health. Even if we can’t all agree on how it’s achieved, it’s still something we all want.

Well-known bioethicist, author and former Obama administration advisor Ezekiel Emanuel rocked the Twittersphere recently, saying he’d rather not stick around until he reaches what most consider to be a ripe old age. “Seventy-five years is all I want to live,” he wrote in a widely discussed essay in The Atlantic.  “I want to...
