Healthcare is Not a Right

This is a bit of a read, but it's well worth it. The concept of healthcare as a "right" is a complete subversion of the very concept of "rights," and is central to discussions about national healthcare. This essay, written in 1993 by Leonard Peikoff of the Ayn Rand Institute and recently updated by Lin Zinzer, tackles the issue head-on.

If you care about healthcare, and about maintaining the uniquely American concept of rights, then take a few minutes and read this piece.
