Gavin White Mrs. White 2nd block 14 Apr. 2017 The Legalization of Medical Cannabis I realize that most people disagree when I say that medical cannabis should be legalized, but there are more good reasons then bad. Plus just think about all the lives medicine, that is pretty much free, can save. I mean it grows out of the ground and slows cancerous cells drastically not to mention it stops seizures and slows Alzheimer 's. Anyways the list goes on and on so there is no sense in delaying help to save lives because last I checked that was murder.
Prop 56 is not selfish it does not care about only about the non smokers it cares for the smokers as well it may not show it, but just wait a while Prop 56 might actually save many smokers life later in the future. The money will not be placed in the wrong hands. From reading an article called The Anti-Tobacco Tax Doctor Is In by Liam Dillon is says that “The governor and Legislature would decide how that money gets spent every year, but it would most likely go toward paying doctors and insurance companies for existing patient-treatment programs.” So no matter what there is no way that the money will be used for someone 's
He asks the “doctor” to give him his news, and, rather than reading a medical chart, the “doctor” is reading a chart showing Aetna’s, a major insurance company, plans for cuts. One can infer that this is coverage cuts. The fact that the doctor is represented as death is stating that the patient will not receive his necessary treatment and will die because his insurance will not cover said treatment. The audience of this article appears to be the general American public who rely on insurance to cover medical expenses. The tone of this article is serious with an undertone of hopelessness.
Obamacare is very beneficial and many people don 't believe this because negative messages about Obamacare outnumbered positive ones. The biggest benefit of Obamacare is that it lowers overall healthcare costs by providing insurance for millions and making preventive care free. Obamacare requires all insurance plans to cover 10 essential health benefits which include treatment for mental health, addiction, and chronic diseases. Insurance companies can no longer deny anyone coverage for pre-existing conditions and they can 't drop them or raise premiums if they get sick. With obamacare children can stay on their parents’ health insurance plans up to age 26.
Obesity is a disorder where people have excessive body fat, which leads to many health problems. It is usually caused by the overeating and lack of exercise. Obesity has been looked down upon by our society due to the medical issues that it causes. As a result of this, a fat acceptance movement was started to protect obese people from discrimination. This movement is bad for society as it makes people think it’s okay to be unhealthy and that everybody else should change their life around for them to be happy about being unhealthy.
Stephen Parnell Professor J. Bocharova Eng.-103-5015 16 March 2018 Vaccines are Killing Our Children For no other reason than freedom should any person be made to put anything into their body that they do not choose to. In fact in California it appears the law makers have put a gun to our heads mandating we vaccinate our children. When it comes to vaccinating we always hear how beneficial vaccinating is and the lives that vaccines have saved, but the consequences are often ignored. In a case of a father of five who became paraplegic from the Whooping cough vaccine. In the video, Whooping Cough, Ben’s baby boy was born
I honestly believe that this immediate judgement that so many people place on ex-offenders just further isolates them, and ultimately makes it harder for them to make the transition back into civilization. People who stereotype prisoners, convicted felons, and inmates make it easier for them to slip into old dangerous habits. The main goal of the speech was to make other people aware of how our society needs to improve on
Universal health care is a valuable service and should be available in all countries. In many countries millions of people suffer from not having access to healthcare they deserve or not being able to pay for the healthcare they need. In the states alone, an estimated 50 million people do not have insurance because of the inability to pay for it. Universal health care would be beneficial to all countries because it would not exclude anyone from getting the necessary help, it would prevent the insurance companies from denying care, and it would contribute to preventative care to take place. Firstly, universal health care would allow for everyone to get the necessary care they need regardless of their medical problem or financial background.
“In my opinion, our health care system has failed when a doctor fails to treat an illness that is treatable” (Kevin Alan Lee 2011). Being a doctor is mean to cure diseases unconditionally. However, the healthcare system in the United States today has always been the top concern in every family and individual. As compared to most of other countries, their governments provide free health care to their citizens at any time (Sicko). We as one of the most powerful countries seems far left behind that people are still suffering from high medical expenses and are still fighting over a basic need of being covered with free health care.
Assisted Suicide “If a man is terrified, it’s up to me to dispel that terror” said, Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Imagine a doctor giving someone a pill, because they wanted to die! This is not right under certain circumstances because, first doctors were trained to heal life not end life, God gave us life and that should not be taken away, and it is an abuse of drugs. Assisted suicide should only be considered if the patient has no ability to recover from their conditions. The first reason assisted suicide needs to be reformed is, Doctors were trained to heal life not end life.
Laura’s death affected many, causing people to feel obligated to stop it from happening to anyone else. While many think Laura’s law is not ethical due to forcing mentally ill to take medication or get help against their will, it is meant to improve the quality of their own lives, and the lives of those around them in the long run. People with mental illness would refuse to get the help they
In contrast, proponents of physician assisted suicide view this phenomenon in a completely different light. Within this camp PAS is seen as a logical and obvious option for those who are struggling with a severe illness. On the account of it is seen as a human right, and a choice any competent adult should have at their disposal. In a debate on the legalization of PAS, philanthropist Andrew Solomon stated, “Although no one should be pressed into assisted dying, no one should be categorically denied that right. It’s about dignity.” That is to say, why keep a person whose life is now full of suffering, with death right around the corner from being able to decide on a time of death if they choose to do so.
The name of this case was Ashcroft v. Oregon, which eventually was renamed Gonzales v. Oregon after Ashcroft retired from the Department of Justice (Gonzales v. Oregon, n.d.). The case, that took place from 2001-2004, was based on the argument made by Attorney General John Ashcroft. His argument was that physician-assisted suicide violated the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (Gonzales v. Oregon, n.d.). Ashcroft threatened to delicense doctors their right to practice if they took part of physician-assisted suicide. The Supreme Court ruled that Ashcroft had overstepped his authority, in trying to revoke the medical license of doctors and that the Controlled Substance Act’s main purpose is to prohibit illegal drug dealing by doctors, and not to control their practices (Gonzales v. Oregon, n.d.).
People ask why do people do that? It’s not worth the harm caused to your body, or even the end of a life. What people don’t understand is that sometimes people can be in such bad state of unhappiness, or depression that the only way to solve the problem is by taking these antidepressants. As in Brave New World, soma is used as a stimulant to result in an extreme amount of happiness in a very short amount of time. Just as antidepressants are used in today’s society.
A legitimate argument against the legalization of Physician Assisted Suicide is the potential abuse it will cause. Many say it will become unavoidable when patients are eventually given the option to Physician Assisted Suicide that do not qualify to the regulations that must be followed. Many believe our society today would eventually push the idea of PAS to these people who do not apply due to pressures of class and poverty. Yes, I do believe our society today has become extremely difficult to keep up with, when these high standards are at the top. Some call this the “Slippery Slope” theory but I do not find this argument very persuasive.
