Regarding the first gentleman's story: Possibly the denial was a mistake. Maybe one over-zealous individual overreacted. The denial was rescinded. And most of all, according to his story, the gentleman decided to refuse the procedure after it was authorized! He possibly shortened his life so he could stand on a soapbox and whine? Regarding the second story, I have mixed feelings about some of the treatments given very elderly people - heart transplants, kidney transplants, etc. But many 75 year olds are not medically very elderly. And the problem of the Mon-Fri review ethics panels is real.
