  • No, I would be afraid of catching something. I would just let them pass, so that they don't have to suffer anymore

  • Yes, definately. A homeless person is a person just like anyone else. Most of them were productive members of society at some point in time. A lot of them are even Veterans.

  • You know the scene on Dr. Dolittle when he gave CPR to the rat? Well, I wouldn't go that far, but I would like to think that I would help a person in need.

  • Sorry, I was curious. Would you give CPR to a homeless person and if not, would you give CPR to a person who wore Gucci, just because of the clothes they wore? And if so, what makes their life more important than a homeless person's? And what if the homeless person was a child, does that make a difference? Just curious.

  • I am a 34 year old mom who was homeless for 17 months. Yes I would give CPR and have to a homeless persom.
    At the shelter were a lived there was someone who stop breathing due to a sezuire, I gave cpr with no mask because the staff at the center said he was faking
    I have raing asa medcial assitant, but I dont care if I had that or not, the people I meet at the shelter are just like you. Don't judge because they are homeless they fell on hard times
    The avg. age of a homeless person is 8 years old.
    90% of America is one pay check away from homeless

    Just something to think over
