To begin with, when there is any controversial issue, it is important to take perspectives from the scholars of the past, and to learn about what they have to offer. For obvious reasons, it isn 't possible to get their opinions on the specific issues.

But Turing Pharmaceuticals can, they can readjust their price so they aren 't “digging the patients grave” with debt, or literally if they can 't afford the treatment.
