Healthcare should be charged based on lifestyles
No, as that would be discrimination.
The use of torture can be justified.
It would only be justified in the: nuke is about to go off in 10mins in NY and the only way to find it is using torture then yes, it would be justified.
1. How is it discrimination? It means that people who decide to do unhealthy things should not bring the weight of the cost down on others.
2. How do we know torture would find it? How do we know the guy we have has any useful info? How do we know the nuke can be stopped?
1. I didn't mean choosing to smoke or choosing to eat unhealthy foods. I meant people with eating disorders, or those who simply cannot afford or are unable to purchase healthy foods. I probably should have made that more clear.
2. To all three of those questions the answer would be that you can't know, but with that many lives at stake and you think that this is your best shot, then I would be okay with it.
