Lets me try to phrase this in terms of principles...

In principle we may take a persons wealth via taxes and a doctor's time and
prices which we of course control, for others needs. Are we sure that is
what we want? What's to keep this whole system in check now that we have
legalized theft and slavery?

I don't care what your situation is. I don't care if your suffering from a
mutant strain of cancer X and your about to melt into a pile of goo unless
someone buys you a 10 cent aspirin. You DO NOT have the right to take other
peoples property (or have the government take it for you). You must rely on
voluntary contributions and charity if you want to be moral.
