Assignment: Health Care And The Constitution
One of the arguments I often hear about why health care is not a right given to the citizens of the United States is that it was not written into the Constitution or the Bill of Rights as something guaranteed to our citizens. For this assignment I want you to conduct a little research and write a 2 page paper which should include the following:
1- A description of what medicine and health care consisted of in the decade the constitution was written 1780's-1790's
2- If you were a contributor to writing the constitution during this time what would be your argument to include health care as a right to all citizens in these important documents?
3- If you were a contributor to writing the constitution during this time how do you think you'd be perceived? More specifically, would you be considered a responsible and ethical individual or something else?
The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
