Maybe if more people were killed outright in auto accidents, our health insurance rates would be lower.
My niece was in a serious accident that shattered her hip, put her in the ICU for weeks and she will have a limp the rest of her life, driving a 1990's car (a Hyundai as it happens).
If she had just died like in the old days, the premiums wouldn't be going up for everyone insured through her company, correct?
Plus there is no guarantee she will go on to be a useful member of society anyway, so what was the point in trying to save her?
But then, I believe in true personal responsibility, which most people don't want to accept.
It's her own fault for getting in the accident in the first place.
