    It depends what kind of care. Are we talking about life-saving care? That is they are dying on spot if so yes otherwise no.

    Yes, supporting the law with the law is a bad argument.

    I notice there are at least a couple who answered no, yet think the unborn should have the right to life. I guess it's true that right to life ends at birth, at least according to some, eh?

    Oh look, another person who doesn't understand that a right to life does not entitle you to the service or property of others. Not surprisingly, it's one of the pro-abort left-wingers.

    What? This is a thirty year old Reagan era law. This is for hospitals that receive Medicare supplements. The only problem with this is that stubbed toes, head aches and sore throats end up there, and a hospital emergency room isn't structured to handle that effeciently. But all us tax paying Americans should want everyone to have emergency medical care.

    Private hospitals should not be compelled to give their services away.

    On the other a society that lets it's poor die in the street because they can't afford medical care is not a society I'd care to live in so I see a legitimate role for government in insuring a minimum standard of care for the poor either through government managed hospitals or government picking up the cost for medical care for the poor.

    The key word is "forced." The initiation of force is fundamentally wrong.
