Well from what I have heard others say or argue is it's a human right because the basics of the Constitution was that people have the right to LIFE,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The same debate goes for abortion, which I find quite ironic the liberals think Health Care applies as a right
to life, but a fetus (a human in the making) doesn't. Not to offend anyone of course
Now the question is, is Health Care really a GOD (or nature, some higher power) given right? Let's look at our rights shall we.
Free Speech- anyone who can speak has the ability to speak their mind, so it is a right.
Freedom of Religion- Anyone who has a mind can believe in anything they want, so it is a right.
Protest, Petition, Privacy etc. All something you can do yourself if capable.
The right to a speedy trial by jury, all that is to protect you from corrupt politics, & bias so it's more of the fact that people should be treated
equally under the Government.
The right to live I think was intended for a different purpose, being that Governments or anyone cannot take your life away from you, by living you
are entitled to your life.
Now Health Care where does this all fit into here? Most of the rights are ones given to by birth am I correct? Is someone given by birth perfect
health or the ability to heal oneself, or a big sign attached saying I need this type of health care? No.
Were people worried about universal health care 100 years ago? Did your grandparents have health insurance? No, they typically just paid out of
their pockets what they owed the doctor for the visit, sometimes it wasn't always money if you go back far enough.
Health care is in my opinion is not a right, it is a privilege. Is it unfortunate that it costs so much? Yes, but I bet if one dug deep enough
they'd find a reason. We should not just take the expenses of health care and not even try to figure out why they are so high in the first place.
If one considers health care a right to life, then Abortion is morally wrong too. If a person who has already lived has a right to get the help
needed at a fair cost to keep on living then doesn't a fetus who hasn't lived in the outside world have the right to just live? The Libs need to
think about that before they pass any healthcare bill.
