I have thought about this for many days, thinking about the arguments in either direction. I don't know that I have a complete answer yet. Although I feel that basic health care in most of the cases is a right, there are some exceptions. When I see patients that come to my ER as a consequence of personal negligence. I cant avoid feeling like that person is abusing of the health care system. Thus, perhaps the basic care and preventitive care should be a right. However, many of the procedures that are based on people's personal negligence, it becomes a privilege.
Well, I work in a country which provides socialised healthcare, so I have a different viewpoint than those in the USA.
I won't provide my personal opinion, because my post will get long, and political and ranty. I will say that I am glad to live where I do.
