Since rights are human constructs, it's a right if humans decide it's a right. It's not if we decide it's not. I'm disappointed by the lack of an "other" option in the poll.
No Lives Matter
However, if the majority of the citizens of a state attempted to pass a law that put significant restrictions on the freedom of expression, that law would be successfully challenged in court because you do have a right to freedom of expression as an individual, thus even if the majority of the citizens of your state wished to restrict that right, the constitution protects you against that tyranny of the majority. In this case, your negative rights are always given precedence over the positive rights of others.
The reason why a hospital cannot deny life saving care to an individual even if they cannot pay is the individual's human right to life saving care is given precedence over the self ownership rights of the hospital owner. The only reason why that is possible is you have a recognized human right to life saving health care.

In fact, I think all three are rights. That's MY ideology. People die of starvation all over the world. The fact that food is not being provided to all the starving, dying of our world speaks for how stupid our world is. But you and others can just keep raving about taxes and the guns at your head. Cos YOUR lives are under such serious diabolical threat, lol.
Depends on how we characterize a right.
Morally, yeah, it is. By virtue of our own humanity, you deserve health cae. No-one in this day and age should be dying due to lack of coverage, or because their insurer wouldn't cover the treatment they needed, or because just going to see a doctor cost so much that one has to put off seeking evalation until it's too late, and what would've been a managable condition becomes a killer. If your government feels entitled to tax you, ask you to follow the law and be a funcioning member of society, then tryin to help you stay healthy and alive is the damn well least they can do. You deserve no less.
According to US law? Don't know, don't give a damn. Law's aren't the ultimate arbitar of right and wrong.
