Abstract:

(Producer) Explores a variety of life and death situations to illustrate the spectrum of highly controversial ethical decisions made daily in modern American medicine. The program looks at the decisions that underlie the use of health-care dollars. When is life support provided and stopped? Who gets the transplants, the best technology and treatment? Who lives longer and who does not? The program features five segments that portray choices concerning prolonged life support, the painful struggle of extremely premature babies, the allocation of organ transplants, the crises that accompany the inaccessiblity of health insurance, and the often thwarted desire to die with dignity.
