A Question of Health-Care to my Brothers and Sisters
I have this question to pose to any and all members who read this post - is the socializing of medicine truly just and right?
My view is thus - health and life are the responsibilities of the parties involved therein. I do not believe that any taxpayer should have to give even a penny to pay for any visit I make to the doctor or the hospital. Like-wise, I would be suitably enraged for any fraction of a penny I paid in taxes to be used to perform an abortion on then next generation's prom queens because of their football-playing boyfriend. (Yeah, I know. Stereotype. Simply using a common one as an example, please take no offense)
I also would be displeased to have to pay for a lung transplant for a person who has chain smoked all their life, even as everyone they knew told them not to and the dangers inherent in their lifestyles.
My question is thus - do the personal lifestyle choices of any person fall under the jurisdiction of any government, and, should any form of aid or charity be taken by force and by law from those unwilling?
ALSO, PLEASE READ THIS - I AM NOT IN ANY WAY INSINUATING THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, OR THE CONGRESS THEREIN, IS ATTEMPTING TO SOCIALIZE MEDICINE. DO NOT TURN THIS MORAL POLL INTO A POLITICAL ONE.
