According to the constitution of World Health Organization (WHO), health of an individual is a state of his or her complete physical, mental and social wellbeing. Rights can be categorized into natural, contractual and legislative rights. While natural rights are those we are born with, contractual rights accrue through contractual agreements. Legislative rights are those conferred on the citizens by the Government through the constitution and its subsequent amendments.

Baumrin argues that health care cannot be a citizen’s right for the following reasons. If healthcare was a natural right, then for one to be permanently healthy, he or she should always be protected from injury or harm from any source. This is unsustainable as there are illnesses and diseases that are contracted from external sources, through the consumption of contaminated foods, etc. Health care is not a contractual right as it does not involve any assurance from anybody, as in an employer-employee agreement. The constitution of the USA is silent on health care, unlike, say, the UK, which has health care clauses in its constitution, though the costs are too high to be affordable to all. Diseases and their sources are limitless, beyond absolute control, and there are no instant remedies and specialist-care readily available for all. Baumrin argues that governments should concentrate more on the direct needs of its population, such as the provision for education, water, housing, and electricity.

Genetic dilemmas and child’s right to an open future

According to Dena S. Davis, a genetic dilemma occurs when a deaf couple, expecting a child, visits a genetic scientist and they need to know whether the child they are expecting will be normal or not. They would prefer getting a deaf child, since they can comfortably take care of such a child. They are afraid that taking care of a normal child would be tough. A case study that raises dilemma is that of a physician participating in capital punishment. It is legal in the USA, but condemned by various health organizations; involves, inducing death to a patient or a person by injecting him/her with a lethal chemical (Baurmin, 2018). Mostly, it occurs when members of the patients’ family; who-patient- is suffering in a critical condition direct the physician to induce a lethal dose to the patient to fasten death. This, according to me is unethical, the patient should be put under treatment, if he responds, fine is not then nature is left to take its cause.  Yet another case study is that of separating conjoined twins.

There are those that share most organs except for different brains. The decision is mostly taken by the parents and not the patients (the twins) due to their toddler age (Dena, 1997). According to me, it is right to separate them in case that, when they remain joined together, they cannot survive. Instances when separating them lead to death due to massive sharing of organs; it should be avoided. Remedies to Rights at the Stake of Violation: If Baumrin’s arguments are anything to go by, people’s right to health care in the USA is at risk. To prevent the right from being violated, the government should expand allocation of resources and enrich services to the population through benefits such as hospital funds and limitless access to special services. According to Dena S. Davis, the rights of children to an open future face a serious threat of violation due to their conflict with religion. The right to an open future refers to those rights that are preserved for children until they are grownups.

An example is the right to reproduction, which is reserved for adulthood, as children acquire the capability to reproduce at adulthood. In the case of rapes and a teenage girl getting pregnant, her right to an open future is violated. There should be an obligation on everyone to avoid harming others. In an effort to prevent the violation of the rights to an open future, the government should impose heavy punishment on perpetrators of crimes like rape, in an effort to discourage potential rapists.
