Is health care a moral issue?

August 5, 2009

In a recent interview with The Dallas Morning News, Professor William B. Lawrence, dean of SMU's Perkins School of Theology was asked this question.  Here's what he had to say:

"Providing access to adequate health care is a moral obligation of every society. It is a moral obligation to provide health care, not on the basis of social or economic class, but on the basis of human dignity."
