Further to this post, the Ace nails it:
How photogenic are you, and what causes do you believe in? Before we decide whether or not to perform this pricey operation on you, we’ll all have to vote (I mean, the government will vote, on our behalf) about whether your life adds sufficient value to the lives of others, in terms of social welfare and social justice.
This is intolerable. And it will only get worse.
