Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"If we paternalistically deprive someone of a freedom (to use performance-enhancing substances), we need to justify this violation of autonomy by balancing the evil we hope to prevent against the loss of freedom we are advocating. In performing the sort of 'moral accounting' described here, it is my contention that prohibition on the grounds of indirect harm to others (through coercion) is justified."
"Drugs in Sports: Justifying Paternalism on the Grounds of Harm," American Journal of Sports Medicine, Nov./Dec. 1996
