This is easy to explain but you may not accept the explanation. In the case of refusing the medical procedures it only affects you. But in the case of safety equipment it affects a lot more than you. You stand a better chance of keeping control of a vehicle if you are warring that harness. The severity of the accident is much less. You don't kill anyone else and you don't raise insurance premiums that affect others.
You are correct, I don't accept the explination. For one, if I accepted the medical treatment rather then refuse it, then that would affect insurance pay out. It affecting insurance pay out does not take the right of me to decide for myself.
Two, If I need a seat belt then I have already lost control past the point of a seat belt helping me keep control.
Three, The cost of how great the damage is done to a person not wearing a seat belt. If I am dead, then a funeral is cheaper then medical care almost no matter what kind of medical care it is. If I have no pain that needs treatment in my life but I end up living in an old folks home for twenty years cause I was healthy, then which really cost everyone the most. It is easy to leave things out when counting and say head injuries cost this much but that does not count the real cost that might have been had there been no head injury.
It is circular logic that gives me the decision regaurdless of cost to others over my body when it comes to medical proceedures being done on me but says it is wrong for me to make those decisions in my own life in how I am living it due to supposed cost to others.
One other thing, If I have not lost control over my vehicle and hurt someone else then I am guilty of doing nothing wrong. If I have, then I expect punishment. Murder is against the law but we don't put people in jail cause we think they might commit murder some day with no actions from them that they were atually going to or did act.
Who wants to put up with what other people think are good for you when you are the one who has to live this life you are given.
It is proven scientifically that vegitarians live longer then meat eaters.
If we really wanted to save everyones money, why not start there and make a law against eating meat.
You can't save everybody and the government should leave some of these decisions to the people that actually have to live that life.
I will never say that everyone has to like onions just cause I like them. Let them do what makes them happy.
