OK. Don't kill them. Just ask them to sleep with eyes and mouth open. Good idea :?:

Basic health care should be universal within a nation. I don't know what you mean by "free" since doctors and nurses need to be paid and maintenance of facilities is never free. But it can, and should, be paid for with tax money. In Spain we have a good national health care system (which means it is costly to the taxpayer, but there is no free lunch). In return people with less money can have expensive treatment if needed. It's in everyone's best interest to maintain public health standards and avoid epidemics. I would only exclude heinous murderers, who should be executed out of mercy.

Yes it should be. Some people are too poor to pay for it. Also as free means in this context that the goverment of a country must pay for it I think that the govermant also has to check if funds are used properly and not stolen.

Of course. Free healthcare should be for free for everybody, less for rich people.
