The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Should the family be financially compensated for the HeLa cells? If so, who do you believe that money should come from? Do you feel the Lacks’ deserve health insurance even though they can't afford it? Why? Why not?

What reasons support your position?

I think everybody deserves health insurance whether they can afford it or not. Countries like Canada, Sweden, Britain....have a health care system which provides free universal health care, paid through taxes, to all its citizens. The United States is currently at great debate on how their health care should work. I think this question is asking for your opinion rather than mine about this.
