A jewish argument for socialized medicine

Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 13 (4):313-328 (2003)
Abstract
: An analysis of traditional Jewish texts yields neither the capitalist notion of medicine nor the socialist one. Neither alternative is sufficient to ground the respect for the sanctity of the human person as a being created in the image of God that is so rationally appealing. That is why the Jewish ethical tradition, which is based on this respect for the sanctity of human personhood, both individual and collective, is so attractive—if only for its insights, rather than its authority; its guidance, rather than its governance
