DP: Right To Health

Today’s Daily Prompt reads ‘Is access to medical care something that governments should provide, or is it better left to the private sector? Are there drawbacks to your choice?’

For me? The government most definitely provide healthcare. If you require a life saving operation, who has the right to deny you that because you can’t pay for it? Who can withhold tablets that will prevent you going blind because you can’t foot that up front? It is ridiculous. The UK (where I live) has it right. People need a healthcare system they feel they can rely on. People say that it gets abused too much. True? Well. It does get abused. However, not hardly so much as the benefit it gives. There’s always going to be people that drain off of the state, but we cannot let the few bad apples spoil the bunch.

Free healthcare for all.
