Healthcare is a right by Sykadia Healthcare is a right by Sykadia
"Healthcare is a right, not a privilege"

A right, unlike a privilege, is an entitlement, or need, that is ethically or legally obligatory. If something is a human right, then this implies a duty for society to facilitate it.
Healthcare is an example of something that should be treated as a necessity, therefore, a human right, not a mere privilege only afforded to certain people.

Use if you agree!

If the way our food production works wasn't constantly hogtying us with chronic problems, it would not be ruinously expensive to run a healthcare system . . .

First thing we should do is end the massive subsidies for sugar and cancer-causing meat, and put that money toward more healthcare.

I must kindly disagree with you on this.  Ben Shapiro did a great job explaining how there's no perfect healthcare system in the world, and for as flawed as healthcare is in the US, I'd rather our healthcare system NOT become single-payer.  You can't have a healthcare system that has universality, affordability, and quality, and seeing as to how countries like the UK and France are having severe rationing problems with healthcare, I'm glad to not be in that system.

To provide healthcare, you would need doctors and nurses. If you think about it, saying healthcare is a right is like saying you have the right to force others to give you medical care.

I am a student nurse and I am trying to start a third sector not-for-profit company which would provide free of charge services in the community, as well as assist the NHS (the government funded healthcare system in the UK). The funding would come from three sources- private agency fees, central government and donations.

I know. I guess I was just trying to explain why I support the charitable/third sector, since they don't forcibly take taxpayer money, while still providing a necessary service, often free of charge and accessible to clients.

Which is fine, I'm only against universal healthcare specifically because it's paid for by tax dollars, which can get really expensive and I'm a low tax guy in general. Plus, leaving health care up to businesses is ultimately beneficial, because the drive for profit and competition will make companies want to improve their medical service.

....you'd rather die?

Plus, that's only at the beginning- if everyone got the healthcare they needed, then they'd become more healthy and would have less need to go so often, thusly there'd be less problems in regards to wait times

It's either get the care you need (wait-times or not) or ... die.

Let me get this straight, If it was free, there wouldn't be any need for doctors to treat things like flus, cancer, or the common cold? Or, is Canada just making up their wait times? Also, do you just think people don't die when they are waiting to be seen by a doctor or what? I'm summing you are talking about America with free heathcare, so just take a look at Canadian wait times, and multiply that by over 10 due to population differences. Not to mention taxes for the working class, because they can all afford higher taxes amiright.

I'm not saying they wouldn't have to treat them, just that it wouldn't be as bad as you're making it out to be

you know what guarantees a death? NEVER BEING TREATED
thousands of women, children, babies, men, etc are dying, because they can't afford to go to the hospital.

wait line or not, it's better than death itself.

you're just a wealthy person that've never dealt w such issues

I know ppl from Canada, yeah, of course there's waistlines, accidents still happen, shit happens, but it's better than never being treated shit-bag.
Being treated shouldn't be a Privilege for the wealthy, it's a human right and if you don't believe that, you're useless to the rest of the Human Kind, you're doing more harm than good B-I

But honestly, they've done the math, if the Wealthy/top percent who have Tax Safehavens actually paid their damn taxes, there'd be way more than enough to pay for things, life could be better, for you, for me, for everyone. (not over night, but as good as it'll get realistically speaking)

lol I wish I was rich why do you think I bring up taxes? because if they were higher I'd be homeless, starving, or cold due to how high they are now? NOPE Can't be the case. Seriously, I'm pointing out the flaws in something and that somehow makes me worthless and rich? If it magically happened overnight and no one had to loose their homes due to taxes, would you be opposed to people who have a "front of the line" kinda pass they paid for so they don't have to wait and die in the time it took?

I'm not saying higher taxes for the avg joe dude, I'm saying if the Wealthy actually paid their taxes is all.
They owe the gov/the people ALOT in backed/unpaid taxes, due to their safe havens and cheating over the system royally. If they paid their fair share, we wouldn't even be talkin' about this- we'd already have healthcare and no one would bat an eye.

Who is going to work to provide such care? Healthcare like all goods and services require human labor to provide. Ultimately your going to have to use force upon someone to guarantee healthcare. At what point does a scarce medical procedure go from being a privilege either of money, or early enough on a waiting list, to being a right. If you believe it should be a public service is one thing, but to call it a right is an entirely other.

If you commit a crime, you have the right to a defense lawyer.
If you're a law-abiding citizen who gets sick and can't afford a doctor "That's your problem, not ours! Maybe you should've thought of that before you got sick!"

You have the right to a defense attorney, yes. But, you do not have the right to force an attorney to defend you. That attorney has the right to not take your case.
To force a medical professional to treat you, or anyone to serve you or supply you with goods, services, or their labor is nothing more than involuntary servitude. Or, more bluntly, it's slavery.

Doctors won't be forced to treat the sick. They'll still be paid and compensated. Slavery is work without pay.

:iconmandoade1977:
mandoade1977 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2017
No, slavery is being forced to do work, to expend your time or energy if you will, in a way that you do not want to, or that you do not agree with.
And as for the countries that have socialized medicine. It almost always leads to rationing health care. In fact, a lot of people that live in Canada come to the US to get care.
And, quite frankly, speaking for myself, I don't trust the government enough to pave a road correctly (something that they're supposed to do); so I'll never trust them to manage my Healthcare. I'd rather shoot myself in the head than to be at the mercy of a bureaucrat.

The problem isn't money, but scarcity. There is a level of scarcity for all goods and services because of physical limitations and the fact that human labor must be expended to provide it. Money is an important tool for the rationing and distribution of valued goods and services. There really is no proven better way of distributing goods and services in an economy and modern society is virtually impossible without money. In Nationalized health systems money is often eliminated at the consumer end and is usually replaced by waiting lines.

If you live in Canada or the UK healthcare is funded by taxpayer money, which I think should be a system implemented in all countries (either that or employers should provide free health insurance).

But nothing is free. Someone is paying for it somewhere. Either I'm paying for it in higher taxes, I'm paying for it in a lower salary from my employer, or higher prices at the businesses I patronize. Or, ideally, I pay for it when I go see the physician of my choice. But nothing is free.

What about the quality of the care, too? I've heard that they can guarantee that it's free, but not that it's good or quick enough?
