    B/c caring for terminally ill patients uses up 50% of Medicare money, and that money is essentially wasted since it is just delaying the inevitable, and the patient will never be able to enjoy the life during the last few months.

    Only a person facing a slow death by inches and extreme physical suffering while they're taking 2 years to die can answer this question. Others can only theorize what they would do when faced with the same scenario.
