Kidney donations and universal health care

KipEsquire makes a good point:

My point here is simply that a “right to health care” ought to include a “right to a kidney.” If such a right is impossible (and it is), then so too is “universal health care.” Stated differently, “socialized medicine” and “universal health care” are not synonymous. It is not “fear mongering” to use former term rather than the latter “” it is simple intellectual honesty.
