From the New York Times, March 21:

More than five million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, a 10 percent increase from the last official tally five years ago, and a number expected to more than triple by 2050, absent a cure, as the 85-and-over population soars and the baby boomers move into their late 60s and 70s.

From the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, March 2007:

In April 2006, officials with the Health Resources and Services Administration released projections that the nation’s nursing shortage would grow to more than one million nurses by the year 2020…. [A]ll 50 states will experience a shortage of nurses to varying degrees by the year 2015…. [There is currently] a national RN vacancy rate of 8.5% [in hospitals].

Three points.
1. Thanks, abortion.
2. Sick, aging baby boomers should be categorized: Those who have advocated abortion the past 34 years should roll their wheelchairs to the back of the line.
3.What goes around comes around. Aging abortion proponents should not be surprised to hear surviving young family members say they cannot afford to care for them, they have no room for them, or this is just not a good time.
