house Bill H.R. 835

Should People Involved in Int’l Doping Fraud Conspiracies be Subject to U.S. Criminal & Civil Sanctions?

Argument in favor

Doping undermines trust in the results of international sports competitions. Combating doping is an important step that will protect sports competitions’ results and ensure that athletes are competing on fair playing fields. Expanding U.S. legal institutions’ jurisdiction to punish these crimes is justified given that the U.S. is the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) biggest funder.

If these incidents occurred on US soil yes, otherwise they should only be held accountable to the laws of the countries hosting the event. Countries that do not have similar laws should not have US athletes participate if they don’t.

Argument opposed

Expanding U.S. jurisdiction to prosecute doping at the international level steps on other nations’ toes, and won’t be tolerated by other countries. Rather than relying on U.S. legal institutions to punish doping, the U.S. should instead help strength the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which is explicitly set up to investigate and punish doping in international sport.

US liberals allow men to compete against women under the guise of transgender rights. I don’t see how we can be the moral authority on doping.

No cost estimation, people could go to prison, could be fined up to 250,000, if they are in jail how are they going to pay the fine? Enforce the laws we have on our books quit trying to make new laws when you won’t enforce the ones we have.

    This steps on the toes of other nations. There are far better steps to take to discourage doping on an international scale.

    If doping is considered unfair and illegal then how can any rational person justify letting men compete in women’s sporting events?

    Sports are merely a distraction from your government oppressed lives....much like the use of gladiators back in Ancient Greek and Roman times. Who cares if they use performance enhancing drugs, it’s all to keep you entertained and glued to the TV anyway.
