  1. Um, what if a person lives in Canada has cancer (or other) and gets the legal suicide kit?

    Facebook still going to report that?

    Other countries?

    American States where suicide is on books as illegal?

    Facebook still going to report that?

  2. If they do that, should they not also redo their privacy policy stating that they will intrude on people medical conditions via AI and report on peoples health conditions?

    Just say’n…
