Michael Bloomberg Suggests Denying Cancer Treatment to Elderly


(Breitbart) – Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg once suggested denying cancer treatment to elderly Americans as a solution to overcrowding in hospitals.

In 2011, while sitting Shiva with a Jewish family, Bloomberg said elderly Americans who are “95-years-old” should be denied treatment if they “show up with prostate cancer” to a hospital in order to shore up resources.

“If you show up with prostate cancer and you’re 95 years old, we should say, ‘Go and enjoy … live a long life. There’s no cure, and we can’t do anything,’” Bloomberg said. “If you’re a young person, we should do something about it. Society’s not ready to do that yet.” CONTINUE
