Does the government know what is better for you? Can you ever say: "This is my decision?"

If you are pro-life, you want to protect the life of a person, even if it hurts other people.

If you are pro-choice, you want to protect the right of a person to do whatever she wants with her body, even if it hurts other people.

Am I right, more or less? Now, watch this:

My name is Joel Nowak. I live in Brookline, New York with my wife and two sons. I have advanced prostate cancer. Last March, an FDA panel of experts agreed that a new vaccine for prostate cancer was safe and showed substantial evidence of efficacy. The FDA delayed approval saying they want more proof. Tens of thousands of men like me will die before they get it. Should terminally ill patients have meaningful access to promising new treatments when their only alternative is to wait to die? What's your position?

I would go even further. What if the FDA panel of expert or anybody else on Earth did not approve it? Shouldn't it be up to the person what treatment he wants to use?

If you are pro-life, don't you agree if a person's life is at stake nobody should forbid him to use the treatment he wants?

If you are pro-choice, don't you agree that a person has the right to chose what to do with his own body?

Even if you disagree, isn't it up to the person to decide what is best for him?

Among all presidential candidates there is only one who would have the guts to abolish the FDA. Is it a coincidence that he is the only doctor among all of them?
