I have issues with obesity drugs...in fact I have issues with pharaceutical companies full stop, I feel it is a very exploitative industry, as material gain and profits will always come first above the welfare of those using the drugs. I'm not saying that pharmaceuticals are bad, but I think there are definitely ethical issues there. I suppose ultimately people have a right to die however they wish to, but that choice needs to be an "informed choice" and people need accurate information to base their choices upon. Ultimately, I figure I would like to die feeling like I have taken responsibility for myself...for me that is trying to reach a healthy weight and stay there without pharmacological interventions, in my opinion drugs can't "fix" this kind of problem, they may "help" for some people, but for many I think they just provide a sense of false hope, and allow people to continue to not take full responsibility for themselves
