WE should decide what WE want! If we take medications which shouldn't be
mixed and kill ourselves, it's OUR DAMN FAULT! We should look for the
information ourselves. There are too many people for our government to take
care of. Now we must take care of ourselves. Think of it this way: People
who don't research the medications they're about to take and get fatal side
effects deserved it! We cannot be responsible for everyone and protect
people from themselves! And there is one nice side effect to this whole
thing! This process filters out all the stupid people who didn't think
before they acted and thus died.

I am now prepared to get responses from people calling me 'heartless'.
