Healthcare- A Right or a Privilege? …

I’m trying to study for my Social Science course and I need some help to understand this question.


There are 4 different “moral arguments” that help to explain views on healthcare provision. Below is a brief definition of each.

Utilitarian moral argument: to maximize the good and minimize the bad.

Egalitarian moral argument: to act on the principle that all people are created equal.

Contractarian moral argument: to act on the value of fairness (without bias).

Libertarian moral argument: to act on the value of freedom.
