Civil rights and healthcare shouldn't be political, but sadly the reality is that one's stance on them is often determined by one's political position.

They really aren't though. If someone treats it as if it was political because their party of choice mandates it, that person has failed as a human being, because they lack both compassion and cognitive ability. It's not a political position to deny someone their human rights, it's an asshole position.

I mean I agree it's an arsehole position to oppose someone having civil rights, but that doesn't mean it's not also a political position, if that discrimination is ideologically motivated. Politics can be unethical or inhumane.
