Wing walkers, Personal Freedom, and Goverment Mandates

Franklin Flying Circus wing walker Amanda Franklin is recovering with 70 percent of her body burned and surgeries in her future.


Because of smoke inhalation and the extreme heat of the fire, Amanda is not breathing on her own, and has a breathing tube and is on a ventilator. She is burned on 70 percent of her body and, the FFC page reports, 64 percent of those burns are third degree burns, including burns to her face.

Comment: Terrible accident and we should certainly pray for the recovery of the injured wing walker. The question I have is this: If it is in the government's interest to manage health care, including mandating that citizens buy health insurance; why would not the same government limit freedoms and legally prohibit risky behavior? (Oh ... I don't think the government should!)
