It has been established that the Right to Health Care is not a guaranteed right in American law. Despite this, there have been many legal enactments that have incrementally moved in that direction without expressly granting it. After reviewing the background readings as well as doing your own research, draft a 1- to 2-page position statement, single-spaced, on whether the right to health care should be guaranteed in the United States. You will not be graded on which side you choose, but you must support your position with reputable and reliable sources; this is not an opinion piece.
