Health Care Rights Amendment - Democracy and Human Rights Amendments
A group to support organizing for the Health Care Rights Amendment of the Democracy and Human Rights Amendments.
The expansion of human rights must include the right to health care, not just emergency ambulatory care. "Promoting the general welfare" in the preamble to the Constitution and the principle of "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" enshrined on the Declaration as natural rights that must be guaranteed starts with health and access to health care. This amendment would give Congress and the states just the authority, but the responsibility to ensure that every American has adequate access to health care.
