    Nonsense. What do you base this on; pure will? Try telling a doctor that they must treat you for free because you have rights. Are all in the medical profession simply volunteers to serve you, should you happen to request it? Are there any other rights for goods and services that you think that you have? Get real!

    Humanity. Morality. Civilized society.

    Try telling a doctor that they must treat you for free because you have rights.
    But its ok if I pay my insurance company a boatload of money or if i dont have insurance i have to pay upwards to $600,000 for surgey then a boatload for medicine, but what happens if i cant afford that? Do i have to loose my house? My possessions? Or do i just not get the surgery?

    Are all in the medical profession simply volunteers to serve you, should you happen to request it?
    That is there job.
    That is why people become doctors, surgeons, nurses. To help people in need.

    You have the right to health And it should be provided for you? You mean you have the right to health and it WILL be provided for you, if not you will lock me up, hurt me, steal from me, or even kill me if necessary?

    How much health care? aspirin and band-aids? Does everyone have the right to receive the same level of care as the POTUS? somewhere in between? Exactly how much do we have a right to?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Which of us is arguing that some ought to labor, on demand, with no compensation, for the benefit of others?
    Let's see, you believe someone ought to work for your benefit. How is that not slavery?

    Really?

    When I judge it against my standard for what should be made a "human right," then I think of healthcare as a right. When I judge it against what I think the duties of government are, then I think of it as a responsibility.

    In short, it's all three things to me depending on where I'm looking at it.
    It's a right that governments have the responsibility to provide for their citizens and it's a privilege to be in a country where it's possible to live up that responsibility.
    When you say the government has a responsibility to give citizens something they have not earned where do you suppose they get the resources needed to give you stuff? They take private property from others. That is plunder. Therefore, you do not believe others have a right to private property and you do believe that plunder should be a way of life. Some criminals take the direct route and steal directly. Others insist that government do the theft for them.

    You are just confused over whether you should have to do the plundering yourself or have the government to it on your behalf.
