Healthcare a Right or Privelege.
Healthcare a Right or Privelege
Wherever our healthcare system is headed in the future, we should ask ourselves some important questions along the way. We are each a patient or potential patient, voter or potential voter. We have a role in deciding what our healthcare system will look like in a year or ten years, but we also have a responsibility to figure out what we’re willing to do to get there. Some feel that healthcare is a privilege, a commodity like televisions or computers and that it should be distributed according to the ability to pay in the same way as consumer goods. Others believe that it is a right of all to have access to healthcare as needed. Discuss whether health care is a privilege or a right and provide a rationale for your choice. **(I believe healthcare is a right.)**
