The way I see it, if someone doesn't want to use PEDs because they don't want to risk their health, and without them they can't make it, then they should probably pursue another career path. I've had very dangerous jobs before, and nobody seemed to care, but if baseball players have to put their health at risk, then it's a huge problem? It should be viewed as a risk associated with the job, if you can't cut it without PEDs, and you're unwilling to take them, find a new line of work.
Wow, I hate this argument. By that logic, why have any laws at all? It should be a world where it is kill or be killed. If I don't like it that someone got promoted over me, I should just take him out. If he isn't willing to do the same because of some ethical problem with it, then too bad for him. Does this sound like a society you want to be a part of? Governance is not a bad thing. They have rules against PEDs. It is not an inherent risk of the job, and should not have to be considered when making a career choice.
