Should we have access to medical records of presidential candidates?Created by:
Today, we have lost one of the great leaders of our nation. She is a woman who is known for her brevity, intellect and controversial comments on political and social issues. In the last presidential elections, senator Miriam Santiago ran for presidency despite her failing health. She publicly announced that she was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2014. Despite her disease being in the advanced stage, she continued her political advocacies. When she ran for presidency, she just made a public announcement that she is trying an expensive experimental drug that can possibly cure her disease. She did not show her medical records. I'm making this post because I want to ask your opinion if you think political leaders (especially those running for presidency) should reveal their current state of health .Should they allow the public to access their medical records? Do you think that its justifiable?
