Consider the 2009 H1N1 scare. What if it really did reach deadly pandemic proportions? What if survival was closer to 50%? Who goes to the ICU, and who doesn’t? Should scarce resources go to the people most likely to survive? Should triage occur on a first-come, first-served basis? If both have equal chances of survival, should the last available ventilator go to the 20-year-old over the 60-year-old who has had 40 more years of life? How about a 1-month-old versus a 9-year-old if they both have equal chances of surviving? A neurosurgeon versus a plumber?
