It's a human need, not a right. We nearly treat it as a right. In emergencies, we effectively treat healthcare as a right (this is good). Food and shelter are a need. Not a right. We have made it into an entitlement. It still is not a right. It's similar to the pursuit of happiness. You don't have a right to happiness. Rather you have a right to the pursuit of happiness.
