People might argue otherwise but taking drugs to better your performance is sports can relate to a student cheating on a test without even studying for it, while other students put in the effort to study hard so they can try to earn a good grade. The use of cheating to benefit is unfair to those who put in the time and effort. However, Performance enhancing drugs have been around where it was used by the greeks in ancient times, sadly the effects of ped hasn 't changed, and athletes to this day still use it too better their performance. For example, Barry Bonds was one of baseballs best hitters ever, putting up video game stats and holding records. Unfortunately Bonds was in the 2007 scandal of using
Gone are the days when people are fond of breaking rules to do something which is illegal such as taking illegal drugs, the related management become really harder and degenerative at the same time. As we all known, the illegal issues are always have negative effect on humans and hence some other people reasonably cannot tolerate such behavior. However, there are still a crowd of people back up using illegal drugs; even think they can be legalized. As far as I concerned, I disagree with the point view, I believe drugs cannot become legalized and ought to be avoided. There are many drugs can be identified as illegal drugs now and hence the classification seems crucial to those people who may mix up illegal drugs and illegal drugs.
Guns have been with us for centuries whether it be for hunting or defending, we can all agree it’s something in our life now that most think it’s unnecessary and just causes destruction and that it should be banned, but is that the real answer? If guns were to be taken away it would only cause them to be stashed illegally, so it would barely make a difference. And riots would which is kinda counterintuitive if you think about it. Not only that it would cause more violence around places where hunting was acceptable. It all in would cause more damage than letting people own firearms.
According to ProCon.org, “Anti-doping programs seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport. This intrinsic value is often referred to as 'the spirit of sport…” (Top 10 Pro). This article states that the programs that prevent the use of steroids promote the fair play, ethics, and honesty that make up sports. Moreover, as stated by WADA, the World Anti Doping Agency, “Doping, the use of artificial enhancements to gain an advantage over others in competition, is cheating and is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport”(WADA).
The United States of America is known to be a free country, but would it be defined as being free if permission is granted for citizens to have access to a gun(s) with them wherever they go? In my perspective, I strongly disagree with the fact of that specific reason which makes America an unfree country. This is hazardous because by carrying a gun around with you will often have the reasons like safety but it could also make you a terrorist like other people who want to use it to plot murder occasionally for money or revenge. Some people would agree and disagree with this idea because of many reasons. I personally think that banning guns is a better idea than keeping them for all citizens.
Dr. James Rachels, in his article “Active and Passive Euthanasia” criticizes the AMA because he believes that passive euthanasia is just as worse as active euthanasia so you should either be for both or against both. His first argument against the AMA’s statement is that if the reason to end someone’s life is to put them out of their pain because there are not any further treatments to alleviate the pain then obviously it would be best to use the method that would end their life the fastest without causing pain. Thus, active euthanasia like a lethal injection would satisfy this reasoning much better than a passive euthanasia method such as a patient refusing treatment and suffering until they die. If you support passive euthanasia for this justification then according to this argument it would not make sense if you do not also support active euthanasia. His second argument is that he believes the AMA’s statement shows that choices in life and death situations are determined with inapplicable points.
It is true that the patient can commit suicide on their own free will, but there can be complications with that. The patient could possibly be too weak to commit suicide, as well as if they committed suicide, another individual would find their body. Finding a dead body can be very detrimental to another human being and can cause them further complications including hurting their mental and emotional health. This could be very unhealthy for the person who finds the body of the suicide
Much of the empirical research in team contests somehow relates to foul play or sabotage. Konrad (2009) states that the possibility of sabotage has an important effect on optimal contest design, because “if there is a favorite, this player will be a prime target of other players’ sabotage.” Most contest designers do not welcome sabotage and aim to reduce incentives for destructive effort as much as possible which makes it a quite large interest in empirical research. Garicano & Palacios-Huerta (2014) show that, for the case of soccer, increasing the prize spread does in fact increase effort. Yet, it increases both, constructive and destructive effort, and the effects neutralize each other with respect to goal scoring.
Initial Literature Review Although steroids may be used by professional body builders to enhance their physique, however their use is also considered illicit, not only by students but by sporting professionals. This is why non-medical use of anabolic steroids is illegal and banned by most, if not all, major sports organizations. Still, some athletes persist in taking them, causing an unfair advantage. But beyond the issues of popularity or legality is the fact that anabolic steroids may cause serious long term health and psychological side effects.
Playing sports results in tons of exercise. Not only will that make you feel good about yourself, exercise also helps you to control your weight, and build muscle. I have also learned through experience that exercise helps you sleep better as well. A big excuse that I have heard people make is that they don’t want to get injured. Getting seriously injured while playing a sport is actually quite rare.
I do not believe that steroids should be legalized in competition because it would give an unfair advantage to those who choose to use the drug. For the athletes that choose no to use the drug, they are more likely to lose. Steroids are already used for what they need to be used for legally. Currently, in medicine, they are a medication used to treat certain conditions. They are legally used for a good reason and when someone abuses them for the wrong reasons, than it becomes an addictive drug.
Mr. J. Hirby of lawdictionary.org states: Many professional athletes take steroids illegally, which not only represent a potential felony convictions but may also result in permanent career damages. People take steroids because it helps them build muscle quickly and perform more effectively at top levels. However, they are considered cheating by many sports enthusiasts, and they are banned from use because no organization wants to lend its support to a practice that leads to severe health risks for the sake of improved athletic performance (Hirby). This quote stated above describes how it is in-fact cheating to use steroids in pro sports as believed by sport enthusiasts and many fans.
It would eliminate intellectual competition and therefore could eliminate innovation and progress. For these reasons I think it is immoral. However, in certain cases, biomedical enhancements of intellect can be justifiably moral. People with attention deficits are given medication to aid their concentration: this is not immoral in my opinion, it simply evens the playing field: it doesn’t simply give everyone the same level of intelligence, it gives everyone an even opportunity to attain a higher
The use of PEDs in professional sports is also an ethical dilemma. PEDs users clearly have a leg up on their competitors that they achieved unnaturally. They are taking a short cut to achieve greatness and that’s unethical in sports. Is it right to play against competitors while taking a substance they aren’t taking? Shouldn’t sports be as fair as possible to everyone?
Players are taking the easy and fast way of getting to the top by using drug, but it is the wrong way. Athletes need to prove to their selves that working naturally can work if they dedicate themselves to it. Drug abuse is a serious matter and can destroy a human’s body, so as athletes or people that can help someone struggling need to take a stand against the use of
