If you were a surgeon would you be willing to amputate a healthy limb?
I ask this question as I'm researching BIID (Body Integrity Identity Disorder) where a person wants/needs to be disabled. should it be exercising free will? Or is it just wrong?
Not on a person, because it wouldn't be medically necessary and could cause harm.
If the limb was on a tree in my yard, then yes, and if I was a surgeon, I would have enough money to pay someone else to remove the limb from the tree.
Suicide is also exercising free will but still not a good idea. Mental illness accounts for BIID and no a surgeon should have no part in that. I wouldn't do it.
