  • Privilege hands down. . . . .

    It is our right to be free, Our right to choose. It is our right to work, Not work. Through our right to be free we make our way in life. We work for money. There are a vast number of professions/employment opportunities for everyone. For those who choose to work in healthcare do not do it for free. Just like most services we pay for. Healthcare is a privilege, Here in the United States it is a great privilege which has become a part of a circus frenzy. The money endowed to healthcare research has made the United States a leader in healthcare technology. Thank goodness we have been allowed to have this privilege to shape into something great to save lives. In short, Healthcare is a privilege just like our home, Car, And job. Our life gives us no guarantees but if we work hard and arrange our priorities appropriately our lives will be full of health and happiness.

    Healthcare is a Right Healthcare is a right. Everyone is entitled to live once they are born and in order to pursue happiness, One must be able to live how they choose and how best to sustain themselves and their families. Property, Usually referring to land, Housing and/or livestock, Is the primary and most basic way of sustaining one’s self as well as a family. Happiness and property cannot be experienced or owned without life, Or rather if one is not living. Healthcare is one of the ways how we in this day and age experience life to its fullest measure. If others intrude upon or interfere with it then that's an attack on liberty. Property and happiness are so greatly dependent upon Liberty.

  • Is a privilege!

    Being a fact that the U. S. Did not ratify Article 12 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights which simply states, “The States Parties to the present Covenant recognize the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health” (CESCR, 1966) tells me that the words denoted in the Declaration of Independence surrounding life, Liberty, And happiness does not define life in terms of health or thriving. Yet, When looking at the UDHR article 25 which suggests everyone has a right to a standard of living which cannot be health care; but rather something you work to achieve demonstrate a reason why the founding father's definition for life is not what we feel is obvious. Therefore, Life is an adjective used which release health care as a right.

  • It's a privilege

    Healthcare is a privilege, Not a right. Nowhere in the constitution does it say anyone has a right to healthcare. If you work, You will more than likely have it thru your employer. If not, Then you can pay for healthcare out of your pocket. It's not societies or governments responsibility to provide it for you.

  • Health Care Is a Privilege

    For all of human history health care has been a privilege. Advancement and research in the field takes money; therefore, Those able to fund much needed research will be at an advantage. It seems to me that the want for better health care for your family is a good incentive to work hard, Innovate, And succeed in life - if health care is right provided by government then the incentives for personal achievement will become diminished by some amount.

  • Healthcare is privilege. -Anonymous

    100% of people interviewed said health care is a privilege. The government has to listen to majority. It is not fair to tax people more for health care, What if they do not want it? This is what people hated about Obama Care, That they were forced to pay for health care.

  • The Anatomy of a Fish

    Fish anatomy is the study of the form or morphology of fishes. It can be contrasted with fish physiology, Which is the study of how the component parts of fish function together in the living fish. [1] In practice, Fish anatomy and fish physiology complement each other, The former dealing with the structure of a fish, Its organs or component parts and how they are put together, Such as might be observed on the dissecting table or under the microscope, And the latter dealing with how those components function together in living fish.

    The anatomy of fish is often shaped by the physical characteristics of water, The medium in which fish live. Water is much denser than air, Holds a relatively small amount of dissolved oxygen, And absorbs more light than air does. The body of a fish is divided into a head, Trunk and tail, Although the divisions between the three are not always externally visible. The skeleton, Which forms the support structure inside the fish, Is either made of cartilage, In cartilaginous fish, Or bone in bony fish. The main skeletal element is the vertebral column, Composed of articulating vertebrae which are lightweight yet strong. The ribs attach to the spine and there are no limbs or limb girdles. The main external features of the fish, The fins, Are composed of either bony or soft spines called rays which, With the exception of the caudal fins, Have no direct connection with the spine. They are supported by the muscles which compose the main part of the trunk. [2] The heart has two chambers and pumps the blood through the respiratory surfaces of the gills and on round the body in a single circulatory loop. [3] The eyes are adapted for seeing underwater and have only local vision. There is an inner ear but no external or middle ear. Low frequency vibrations are detected by the lateral line system of sense organs that run along the length of the sides of fish, And these respond to nearby movements and to changes in water pressure.

  • Healthcare is a Right, Not Privilege

    No, healthcare is not a privilege but a right. The US Declaration of Independence lists three inalienable rights; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Within the idea of "life" comes health and thriving, thus healthcare is a right. To deny healthcare is to impede on the right to life.

  • All citizens have a right to healthcare.

    Healthcare should not be a privilege reserved only for those who can afford it. All people are humans, and humans are imperfect beings. Everyone is subjective to illness, and people should not be punished or denied help when they get sick just because they cannot afford to pay for it. As civil human beings, we should wish our fellow man well enough to want to insure that everyone has access to healthcare.

  • Not a right

    Healthcare is a service provided by another, Usually a doctor or medical practitioner. To claim that healthcare as a “right” means someone must claim a right to the services of the health-care provider. One should not have the "right" to claim services from another. Further. Medical services differ. Some doctors are more skilled than others. Does that imagined "right" extend to selecting a doctor?

  • We simply can't give please healthcare away

    Healthcare is a right, to an extent. It is in the public's interest to provide public healthcare as a right...Up to a point. We must admit, however, that it is economically impossible to give the best care to all. If ALL healthcare is provided free of charge, then there is no value attached to such care despite there being significant cost. Healthcare is a limited resource and when you mix a limited supply with an unlimited demand, you are asking for trouble. Thus, we must attach a cost to services above the most basic of care or we risk having nothing above the most basic of care due to the collapse of such services.

    I will use medication development as an example. PHARMA is an awful racket in many cases, but out of that racket we see amazing medical leaps from time to time due to the profit motive. One example is the development of new Hepatitis medications in recent years. These medications have lifted cure rates from the 50th percentile to the 95th percentile overnight. These types of leaps cost billions of dollars per medication brought to market. Most medications barely break even. When a major leap is achieved, these medications are priced high because they have a limited time under patent. They must earn that money back and cover the cost of all the failures or non-approved medications. After patent expiration, generics can be released and prices slowly begin to drop as competition increases. Thus, patients pay exorbitant prices for around 10 to 15 years and after this time period, prices generally drop dramatically. If companies are unable to earn a profit or break even,the entire system breaks down and these inexpensive generics never exist. People do not have a right to these medications because these medications were developed as a result of the profit motive and giving them away for free would cause a breakdown of this system and development would cease. The only replacement would be government development, which would be slower and less innovative.
