It should be. To paraphrase Pope Francis "......access to health services cannot be a privilege."

HOWEVER, if it isn't a right, there needs to be something done about the costs of medical care. It is outrageous that it's cheaper to just die from a heart attack and pay the cost of a funeral, than get medical care for it.

Side: Yes.

SUPER STUPID you are a CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR quote for us where healthcare is a right ????? Come GURL what you got to say !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Side: No.

I’m not a straight up socialist. But, if we agree that primary education is a right (even if u don’t have kids you still pay - what kinda free market is that?!), then I feel each BORN CITIZENS have a right to basic healthcare. Actually, I see paying for OTHER KIDS education is more Marxist and less free market than CONTRIBUTE to a healthcare fund - there’s no doubt I’ll use it sometimes in life.! Let’s just be real here. We already are socialist in part

Yeah, but whenever socialism works the capitalists claim it's capitalism, and whenever it doesn't work they say it's socialism.

Yes but sadly no one is obligated to give a shit in our current society unless you can pay them to save your sorry ass or get the insurance agency to do it.

Side: Yes.

It depends entirely on which country's legal system you are discussing. Healthcare is a legal right in certain countries, but not in others.

If you are referring to this fantasy definition of "rights" you Americans use when you are referring to a bunch of stuff you claim God has given you then to be honest I haven't got a clue what you mad bastards believe.

Side: Yes.

Free health care is a sort of geographical lotto.

Whilst free health care is not an inherent right most European countries followed the U.K., which was the first nation in the world to introduce it's National Health Service in 1948.

Essentially however, this is not a free service as everyone who is in employment pays for this facility through the income tax and National Insurance Contributions they have deducted from their earnings at source. That is, deductions made from your wages before receiving them.

If you were born in Bongo Bongo Land you have virtually no chance of a health service, free or otherwise, with the only exception being the citizens of those countries which receive foreign aid.

America is a rich country with plenty of well paid job/career opportunities.

All those in employment should make provision for all contingencies, including health care and old age.

A health support,safety net, not a hammock, should be provided for those who are temporarily unable to secure employment.

Those fit and healthy work shy layabouts should not have taxpayer's hard earned dosh directed towards them.

Let the low lives perish as nature's natural selection process intended.

Those fit and healthy work shy layabouts should not have taxpayer's hard earned dosh directed towards them.

But obviously you fully support the workshy layabouts who get rich from ripping off the poor fuckers working for them getting healthcare, because that is how the double standards of idiots like you operate. You try to guilt trip people into working so you can exploit them in order to make money. If people refuse to be ripped off by parasites like you then they are "workshy layabouts". This has been the line from evil white men like you for decades now.

Side: Yes.

No one is obligated to use their own resources or time to save your life. If they do, that's nice.

Libs don't even think being born is a right...

If I have no right to be born, do I have a right to anything else...

Side: No.

Not really, I advocate for healthcare though. But nowhere in our constitution is it written that healthcare is a right.

Side: No.
