Managed Care and Managed Death

Two strong movements have each begun to enlist many enthusiastic adherents throughout the nation: a movement toward managed care as a means of cost control and a movement toward managed death through euthanasia and assisted suicide.

It is also appropriate to ask whether these movements share anything in common besides their names and the controversy that surrounds them.
