    Health Care; Privlege, Right or Responsibility?

    I hope this is pretty self explanatory. What do you think? This'll be multiple choice and I'll include an "other". Give me a sec to get the poll up.

    It's a right from your parents who force you into the world and society without prior consent.

    Theoretically speaking, their obligation to uphold this right could carry unto their deathbed, but hopefully, it's relieved once children are graduated into adulthood by demonstrating maturity through a rite of passage.

    But that means it would be a responsibility on the part of the parents, correct?

    Privilege. You probably don't pay for, you probably don't deserve it.

    Everyone should have the right to proper medical care.

    If you're talking about the benefactor, yes.

    What do you mean responsibility for access to healthcare?

    It is a right, and is a responsibility to the extent to which it is possible to provide it.

    Medical care is necessary for long-term survival for most people. Just because the need for water is a more immediate need does not change the fact that medical care still is a necessity.

    So, zgold, are you saying that anyone born poor doesn't deserve medical care? What have they done wrong, exactly?

    Health care has to be supplied, not just demanded.

    If I'm hanging off the edge of a cliff, why are you obligated to save me?

    Then they should call an insurance company and get a policy.
