    This is arguably the most ****ing retarded thing I have the misfortune to see every single time I read it, and yet I read it a lot around here.

    I'm sorry you people don't understand the difference between killing someone in aggression and not giving someone a good or service they don't pay for, but that difference remains huge.

    Nope. Rationalization does not make it true, champ.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    And I am sorry that you seem to place so little value on the life of the poor, that you feel that their inability to pay for the service of emergency medical care means that they should be denied it.

    Really? Please explain.
    The right to life has nothing to do with emergency medical care.

    That person already has his life. Nobody is taking that away.

    By the way nobody is denied emergency medical care anyway.

    I said nothing about "should be."

    Charity is laudable. You were talking about government force.

    So long as the government or someone else takes up the bill, I don't think hospitals should be forced to take a hit financially but I also would say they shouldn't turn someone away in need of lifesaving care.

    The government forces people to do things all the time. Believe me, I would certainly not pay taxes if the government did not force me to. Forcing hospitals to give emergency care for the poor supports the right of the poor to life, and a government that forces a hospital to provide such care is therefore just in doing so.

    And it's justified some of the time.

    Never in taking one man's property for no reason other than to pay for goods and services requested by someone else. If you want something, you pay for it.

    Forcing hospitals to give emergency care for the poor supports the right of the poor to life
    It does no such thing. All it does is violate the right to property of anyone forced to labor without their consent or forced to pay for goods and services requested by someone else

    Can I rob you to help the poor? If no you are greedy.
