The right to healthcare is a human right!

The passage of the bill encourages me even more to pursue this profession.

I want every human to have health care, but it is not a right. Just like food is not a right, you can't guarantee someone something that is a limited resource. You as a human can only be entitled your thoughts/beliefs and those things you've worked for.

Your definition does not fit mine, and I will not let you impose your views on me.

I know it is simply impossible to actually give healthcare to everyone, but everyone should be entitled to the possibility of access to it, in principle. Promoting and ensuring the existence of a system that outright closes the option for many is against human rights, in my opinion.

To avoid crowding the Pre-Medical Allopathic forum with many threads on the exact same topic, all healthcare reform threads have been merged into one thread: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=711803. Additional threads will be closed. Remember that the forum is dedicated to applying to medical school. Yes, the reform is relevant, but we cannot have them taking over the entire forum. If you would like to create your own thread, please do so in the Sociopolitical Issues forum: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/forumdisplay.php?f=12. Thanks for your understanding!
