Accidental poetry of our bioethics discussions

Yeah, but think about all the unnamed street junkies

that have died 

under bridges

never found.

 

Yeah, all of these questions

–these questions on access to healthcare

and treatment–

are certainly paramount.

But just from the abstract theoretical level

I would say

there isn’t a meaningful difference

between

somebody who’s well off

and

someone who is snorting coke fourteen times a day.
