you do not have the right to refuse anesthesia if you require life saving surgery
You do have the right to refuse anesthesia. It's your body, and you have a right to control what goes into it. That said, the doctor has every right to refuse surgery without it. So that's the consequence of refusal. It's not that we don't have a right to refuse; it's just a matter of opportunity cost.

I don't understand why we aren't talking about colonizing the moon at all. It doesn't make any sense to go straight to Mars. Robots sure; but humans, why send people there to die? At least on the moon, if something bad happens, there's a slight possibility of recovery. If something happens on the way to, or on Mars, the team is pretty much screwed.
What am I missing here?
