Is Healthcare a Right?


I had this debate last weekend and I thought I’d toss out what the two main arguments were. Which one is the most winningest? You decide.

Pro:

Health care is a right, because everybody has a right to be as healthy as possible and in a society as caring and wealthy as ours we have no excuse to not make sure that everyone benefits from having good health care.

Con:

No one is born with the right to expect other people to take care of him/her for life; however, every person is born with the responsibility to take care of him/her self and anyone that he/she cares about (family, friends, poor people, refugees, etc).
