Again, how broad a brush is proper? If you believe no one should decide who does and doesn't, I don't believe there will be many takers for such a system.
I would happily pay for programs to remove such things... not a system that continues to allow it.
If you son has no money for cancer treatment and he lived in my state, he would still get it regardless and I'd happily pay for it, which I do.
I do hope your son has all in remission and is doing well, kind thoughts his way and yours.
Thank you. He turns 18 next month so would no longer be eligible for a state program, afaik. He will be on Dug's insurance until he graduates from college and has his own job and insurance.
If we really want to crack down on smoking and soda, or other things that may cause illness, then we need, as a society, to make it unappealing. Tax the heck out of it. Do a massive education on the consequences of it. Really discourage that choice.
One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
