Chelation therapy is a process where doctors would take out excessive amounts of heavy metal in the human’s body, this is used in autism because of the belief of heavy metal poisoning, due to vaccination overloads. Dr. Paul Wax, has said that “There doesn't seem to be any scientific justification for using chelation to treat autism” (Brownstein). He believes that there is not enough scientific evidence for a child to use chelation therapy as a way to treat autism. Not only is the treatment expensive, but there are also more disadvantages than advantages for using chelation treatment. “Common side effects include:...respiratory failure...kidney failure...liver failure” (Abassi).
There are thousands of people in the world who oppose the idea of age based healthcare rationing. Some believe that if we ration healthcare based on age, that it would take away rights and justices from the elderly population (scu.edu). Like mentioned in the article by Claire Andrea and Manuel Velasquez, “Aged-Based Health Care Rationing”, when people refer to the justice part, they believe that everyone should be treated similarly unless there are rules or morals presented that require them to be treated differently. Yes, everyone should be treated equally, but healthcare rationing is not going to treat people differently, only the medical resources would be rationed.

Living a healthy life is a struggle to some American citizens, being able to afford to be healthy poses a significant challenge to some Americans. With the costs of a hospital visit potentially being greater than a thousand dollars, many Americans choose to forego treatment and hope they recover from their ailment without medical attention. To combat this issue, president Obama introduced the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, to encourage Americans to sign up for health insurance to be able to afford healthcare. The ACA provides subsidies to low income families and individuals, fines businesses who do not provide health insurance to full time employees, expand existing federal and state health plans, and sets a standard for health insurance policies. Additionally, since the introduction of the ACA into the American healthcare system, insurance premiums have not increased at the same rate they have previously.
By labeling treatment as unnecessary, the doctor suggests that we are in a situation where the treatment does not bring any medical benefit. Of course, in ordinary situations, to not recommend unnecessary treatment it depends of good medical practice, and it is the subject of many studies, protocols and lessons of continuing medical education. In these situations, the decision on the futility of a treatment is a decision to rationalize costs. In life and death situations, however, the physician must ensure that by declaring that one treatment is useless, he has not been driven by costs and does not make an economic judgment. In this case it would be a serious mistake to label his own decision as futility.
