Is Medical Care a Human Right? - Religious Faith Perspectives

Steve Lotter


Please join us on Sunday, July 8th at 3 p.m. for a forum with local religious leaders.

Amidst a highly partisan and sometimes toxic debate regarding healthcare, most can agree that the system in the US is a mess. While its the most expensive healthcare system compared with that in other nations, several measures of health outcomes in the US indicate the system functions inadequately for a significant part of the population.

To revive a civil and productive discussion on healthcare, we must first consider the goals and visions we have of the system. This involves a consideration of our moral and ethical values regarding the role of the community in the health of the individual. One question of particular relevance is whether access to healthcare is a basic human right.

Please join religious leaders from our community as they describe how their faith informs them on this issue.

Participating in the forum are: Pastor Rick Jackson (Olivet AME Church), Father Fidelis Olokunboro (Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center), Imam Mohammad Sirajuddin (Islamic Society of Michiana), Reverend James Miller (Sunnyside Presbytarian Church) and Rabbi Michael Friedland (Sinai Synagogue).
