    No, this can't be true. While we need to contain the person's capacity to adversely affect society, as Commodore said, every person has a right to basic human dignities, or else the "punishing embodiment" is not somehow better, and thus not to be in a position to administer sentences. Now, where exactly this starts and stops on issues like color tv, food fancier than base nutritional value, or other "accommodation" might be up in the air for debate, but we can't start from the belief "they did something wrong and hurt someone so they deserve nothing".

    That's basically how the American healthcare system works though - it's a market, not really a communal good. I would not be surprised if prison inmates are expected to contribute to their healthcare costs via work or their own money.

    Surprise. Healthcare is provided. Back in the day I knew guys who couldn't afford to get out of prison because it would cut them off from critical prescriptions that were keeping them alive.

    Oh wow that's good then. If only we would assure the same thing for everyone in the country. And soon we may lose the ACA which provided some relief.
