• gwem asked : I'm really curious, why would you not take medicine to save your life?

    I think it’s been getting blown out of proportion today ever since I mentioned something.. but because I don’t believe in how it’s produced. For a drug to be considered safe by the FDA and able to be recommended by a doctor, it must undergo extensive animal testing, in which lives are tossed away like napkins. If I took medicine to keep living, I’d be going back on one of my most committed beliefs. In the 1990’s in the Columbine High School massacre, Cassie Bernall, a student, was asked “Do you believe in God?” by the gunmen. She answered “yes” knowing that it’d be the last thing she ever did. Why? Because when you live for a cause, you should also be able to die for it. If what you live for is not worth your life, then why are you living for it?

    I am a firm believer that we can save this world and I am doing what I believe is necessary, but our time is running out. Maybe if I were to pass as a result of an illness and not taking medication for it, it would be an eye-opener for some people, hopefully they’d stop and think “Why was that so important for that kid that it was worth his life?” I will not bend, and I’m going to take that to my grave.
