True, but they do negatively impact what YOU are paying for health insurance, assuming that the risk is spread evenly among people.
In an imperfect world , we can and should only do so much. I'm sorry, if you're a child who can't figure out that 60% body fat is unhealthy, then yes daddy government should say something; just the same as if you're an idiot and can't figure out that driving while intoxicated is dangerous than yes daddy government is going to say something to you.
Daddy government isn't going to come into your house though and tell you you can't have a beer,or a ding dong
Will you demand condom use by all to help stem STD's?
If you're on welfare, I certainly would like to demand it, and not just b/c of STDs.
What about pregnancy out of wedlock? Will you demand marriage and that the couple for everything themselves or will you advocate for removing those babies from the homes and giving them to more responsible people?
If you could prove to me that ALL children born out of wedlock were worse off than children born in marriages, I'd consider it, but you can't.
Which is why, for example I am okay with allowing gays to adopt. You can't PROVE that children of gays do worse than children of straights as a rule.
Are you fat? If so , I apologize for stepping on your toes and ask that you please don't respond by stepping on, and subsequently smashing, my toes.
