"You may think,
for instance, that you have a right to health care. After all, Hillary
said so, didn't she? But you cannot receive health care unless some
doctor or health practitioner surrenders some of his time - his life
- to you. He may be willing to do this for compensation, but that's
his choice. You have no "right" to his time or property. You have no
right to his or any other person's life or to any portion thereof."
"Logic cannot support
the premise that health care is a right. Health care is a service that
is administered by another human being with the requisite skills and
knowledge. To claim that healthcare as a "right" is to claim a right
to the services of the health-care provider. In effect, this means you
are claiming a "right" to a portion of that person's life – both a portion
of the time already spent developing his skills, and a portion of the
time spent practicing those skills on you."
