I think they're trying to argue that we should just let this people kill themselfs so that their genes don't get passed on.

So basically they're shouting "I'm a horrible human being"

Opioid use rarely kills people with clean drugs of known strength. Opioid use kills people when they don't know how strong their drugs are and take too much by mistake, and when they consume poisons along with the drug, but those risks can be removed without removing the opioid.

So letting people buy opioids over the counter wouldn't actually cause people that kill themselves and not pass on their genes.
