The article explores the use of the new natural law theory (NNLT) in determining what rights are associated with health care, if any, and how to realize such rights. NNLT's vision of free choice leading to reasonable acts helps establish that health is a basic good which is a foundation of rights recognized by the state. It emphasizes that NNLT rules out collectivization of health care and any system that denies the state in providing a health care right.
