In a CNBC interview today, Turning Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli (32 years old) said he was proud of his action in raising the AIDS drug Daraprim from $13.50 to $750, and he will do it with other drugs. The medicine Daraprim is a 62-year old drug used to treat life-threatening parasitic infections, whether involving babies or AIDs patients.

"If it targets specific deviants then it could be ethical. Depends on how you use it (price gouging)." Comparatively, it could look like a fine. A deterrent. How cautious will people be towards these risky acts if a cure is found? Not at all cautious, if the price is low.

I though so, so I jokey talked about it, No need to say sorry.
Emilrose says2015-09-23T18:17:25.5020925Z

Freedom are referring to if the drug is a cure for HIV? Because how do you possible think it is a deterrent to what YOU think is abhorrent behavior and why should people suffer with a disease when a cure is available. I don't even understand that brutish kind of thinking. STDS are rampant should no one have a uncostly cure? Like penicillin because they have intercourse? That could mean loads of soldiers overseas could die just from a week end furlough?I don't believe you are thinking the whole wide picture through?

Who are you talking about?

"why should people suffer with a disease when a cure is available." This right here is the million dollar question. And to follow it up ... Why should other people who do not have the preventable disease suffer because someone else does? The cure being available or not is completely irrelevant and certainly does not automatically entitle anyone to its use. Why should they suffer with that disease? Because they brought it on themselves! Rape victims, you don't apply here ... Im not talking about you the <.0001% ... Im talking about the rest that did this to themselves through consensual actions with an infected person.
