reporting communicable diseases
Debate Rounds (3)
The number of reasons people should resist registering as having X or Y disease are nearly innumerable, but by answering your other questions, I will disprove your resolution, which I believe to be, "People Should be Forced to Report Communicable Diseases".
do people have rights to keep communicable diseases to themselves or let warn people about it?
In America - Yes. This right would be guaranteed by the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution.
do people have rights for their own health privacy?
Again, I can only answer from the place in which I live, but yes...yes they do. In fact, there is an entire body of laws that have been set up to guarantee this:
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules

My opponent makes no consistent argument in the one round in which he participated after my initial response to his first argument.
As such, you should vote for my opponent, and not me.
