No right to health care

Christopher Ziolkowski

The rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are individual rights that can exist without oppressing others. In contrast, if health care were considered a right, doctors would be legally obligated to provide health care to everyone, rendering them involuntary servants. Imagine what would happen if everyone had a right to happiness. Rather than getting joy from the fruits of oneâÄôs own labor, it would be a duty to sacrifice oneself to serve the happiness of others. Thankfully, that is not the case, nor should it become so. Christopher Ziolkowski University undergraduate student
