Is access to health care a right (yes) or a privilege (no)?

  • Child labor and poverty

    Any kind of child labor is harmful, But the children that have to do mining as a labor is especially poor.
    They are always in danger, whether if they are under or above the ground, The gem mines in Tanzania they are living in has a lot of chemicals that they breathe in everyday, causing a serious risk to their health that can easily change into diseases, which their “master” hardly cares about.

  • Access to health care is a right and not a privilege.

    Access to health care is a right and not a privilege. In American society today, people of low incomes have access to government health which is called Medicaid. Medicaid is available to people who have low incomes and therefore it is for the most part a right and not a privilege.

  • It Is A Right

    I believe access to health care is a right, not a privilege. Some members of society seem to think they are somehow superior to others in the society but we need to remember that all members of society can benefit the others. Health care has been around in varying forms for years and the doctors that are educated now should remember they are entering the field to help society, not collect a pay check. I think our fascination with money and wealth has hurt our morals in more ways than some are willing to admit.

  • Where is it a right?

    Access to health care is a privilege, and not a right, because it does not say anywhere in the constitution that it is a right. With health care, someone else has to provide it for you. If health care is determined to be a right, that means that you have the right to someone else's labor.

  • Sadly, in the US it has been a privilege.

    No, health care has been a privilege in the US for a good many years now. That's a sad comment on our society. People have died because they had no insurance. People have been denied care because they were poor, or homeless, or without insurance. Access to health care should be a right, not a privilege.
