Q. Is healthcare a right or a privilege?

Health care can be one word or two! I need to do a comparison contrast paper for my English Composition class.


To find information on the whether or not healthcare / health care is a basic human right, you might want to try a few different options. 

First, figure out exactly what you mean by "human right" and by "health care." Try searching for these terms dictionaries or encyclopedias like those found in our Credo Collection.

Once you have your definitions settled, search resources in the Rasmussen College Online Library.  These library resources can also be accessed in any online class; click on the Resources tab, then click on the "Search eResources" link.

Before searching for resources, develop a list of keywords that describe the ideas that you want included in a book or article.  Creating a "Search Menu" can be helpful.  For example:
