Attempts have been made to devise rationing plans for health care, and they have met with varying degrees of acceptance. In 1987, the Oregon legislature voted to eliminate $1.1 billion in Medicaid expenditures for all organ transplants except kidneys and corneas and to use the funds to provide prenatal care for an estimated 2,000 medically indigent women. This decision was made with an explicit understanding that there was a trade-off between basic care for the many and expensive care for the few.
