Hands off my meds – John Stossel
This Thursday, John Stossel’s show on Fox Business covered the question of whether or not the Government has the right to tell you what you can or can’t put into your body. The show featured comments from many sources on the subject including Frank Burroughs from the Abigail Alliance. John summarizes his thoughts on the matter on his site here. An excerpt:
Bruce Tower has prostate cancer. He wanted to take a drug that showed promise against his cancer, but the FDA would not allow it. One bureaucrat told him the government was protecting him from dangerous side effects. Tower’s outraged response was: “Side effects, who cares? Every treatment I’ve had I’ve suffered from side-effects. If I’m terminal it should be my option to endure any side-effects.”
Of course it should be his option. Why, in our “free” country, do Americans meekly stand aside and let the state limit our choices, even when we are dying ?
When online video of the full show becomes available, we will share.
