You define "selfishness" as opposing what certain people demand you do to your own body.
No I do not and I never have. Thanks for confirming that you indeed are a stunod.
People have every right to do whatever is within the law - in the confines of their own homes where their decisions affect no one but themselves. People do not have the right to enter public spaces and potentially infect others with a widely preventable disease when the government will pay for preventative medicine that almost insures the disease will not be spread further - particularly to those who cannot take the preventative medicine due to their own health conditions.
Our government was formed to protect and promote life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That is what regulating public health is completely about - life and health.
In your parlance, actively trying to stop suicide would qualify as an authoritarian overreach by government.
And let's be straight for the last time: People have every right to control whatever they put into their bodies. People DO NOT have the right to enter into public spaces and endanger the health and welfare of others who are taking reasonable precautions to protect themselves from getting sick or dying from a novelcoronavirus that has killed 700,000+ Americans over the last 18 months. You have the freedom to stay at home. If you want to enter public spaces then government has the right to protect vulnerable citizens from the recklessness and selfishness of those who'd willingly continue to publicly spread a virus by refusing to voluntarily protect themselves and others.
Again, settled law, not authoritarianism, it's government's responsibility. It's incredible that those like you continue to talk about rights without ever speaking to responsibilities. What responsibility does any individual have to the rest of us in society? None?
If those unwilling to mitigate (notice, non-vaxxed can wear masks and take non-medical precautions to also stop the spread of disease, but most don't) want to talk about their freedom, then they should take sole responsibility for their fates should them become infected - eschewing all medical/pharmaceutical help and/or paying for all of their care themselves since they refused the recommended preventative care offered to them for free.
What price should those exercising their freedom be forced to pay because I'm sick and tired of paying for it with my own inability to safely and freely traverse public spaces due the health decisions they make for themselves which might negatively impact me?
