    Deliberately withholding information is a violation of the consumers rights

    In Libertarian land, consumers have no rights.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    So it all comes down to a rather subjective view on acceptable risks that are permitted in a society. I'm not surprised by that discovery at all.

    Like telling the patient they have the choice to pick death? Isn't that option a bit obvious? Btw, you can decide to die at any point here. Just sayin'..

    Because apparently some people need to be told.

    Morbidity is a serious concern for people and the people around them in those situations.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not and I don't understand the point you're trying to make here.

    Are you suggesting that risk vs reward is a subjective measure? Well gee yea. I could rob a banks for a living or I could work a job every day. It's all a matter of risk vs reward. Sure I could get rich quickly but I dunno, there's only so much risk I want to take, not even taking into account that most people actually do want to follow the laws and rules of society.

    Yes, they are equivalent in the government's eyes because you need a license for both. Can you explain why?

    They have the ultimate right: The choice of whether to be a consumer.

    So you take back your earlier statement. Good. That's progressive.
