The debate intrigued me, and I think it will intrigue you too. The debate could be about almost any adversity. At what point do people have the right to refuse medical treatment. Does the answer depend on age, gender, nationality, geographic location, skin color, law, or some other factor? Is the decision subjective or objective? If the person who refuses treatment does so for moral, ethical, or religious reasons is the decision enforceable?
There are many people who believe all treatments, medicines, and vaccines have side effects. As such, they refuse treatment. There are also people who feel only God has the right to make life and death decisions.
Are the people who refuse medical treatment harming themselves, harming society, or making sound decisions?
Although the article does not address all of these questions, it did make me think. Perhaps, it will inspire you to share your comments.
