Here's a definition of a right:
"In a civilized society, education is a right. Some services we may pay for but society still treats them as rights: In any developed society, we expect to have water, electricity, even phone service (in the U.S., we all pay fees to assure that everyone can get a line)." The writer's asking if the Internet is a right More here...What about health?
Is health a right?
In a developed society, should we each expect to have health? Like water and electricity? I.e. it's something "others" provide?
Or is health a personal choice? Like being an entrepreneur? A person chooses how they eat, drink and live. And they're responsible for the results.Vote top right on this page.
"No" means you believe health is not a right - that each individual is responsible for their health (I do not refer to health insurance.)(Again, you are not voting on health insurance, but the health of each individual, including weight, fatigue, etc.)
"Yes" means you think health is a right - something that others, like the government, should be responsible for giving you.
