The hand on Georgiana’s cheek is a symbol for the sins of this world. Even Aylmer states that, “as being the visible mark of earthly imperfection.” I personally think Georgiana knows that she will die in order for Aylmer to remove the Birth Mark. That is why she keeps putting the surgery off. Rosenberg explains, “Aylmer never truly sees his wife; even when she is dying, he misperceives the true import of her symptoms. (147) At the end of the story, Aylmer accomplishes the surgical procedure of removing the birth mark; however, it killed his wife in the process.

To begin with, Winnie should have not drunk the water because she would have to watch her loved ones die. For instance, Winnie’s grandmother is mortal which means she cannot live forever and she can die. In my opinion I think Winnie did the right decision to not drink the water because she wouldn’t have to see her loved ones die and onces her loved ones die she would be lonely forever. Furthermore, if Winifred drunk the water and didn’t give it to the toad, the toad would have died and the toad was a special loved member to Winifred. I think Winifred’s decision of giving the water to the toad was an excellent idea
Ethics of Gattaca In recent discussions of the film Gattaca by Andrew Niccol, a controversial issue has been whether pre-implantation genetic diagnosis which is diagnosing a persons diseases before they are born using their genetics is ethical. On the one hand, some argue that the use of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is unethical. From this perspective, to discard babies who's lives would be greatly effected and much harder than others due to diseases that could be diagnosed before birth is unethical. Humans should not be able to “play God” or in other words decide another human’s fate no matter what. On the other hand, however, others argue that it is unethical not to use technology such as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis because

By failing to define the terms ‘fetus’ and ‘standard fetus’, he leaves open for interpretation not only the moral significance of the terms, but also their strength in relation to his argument. Marquis assumes that the fetus has a future that is just as valuable as that of an adult yet fails to grant the fetus the same moral status as an adult. This lack of consistency along with the falsity of his claims weakens his argument and leaves a large piece of the abortion question unanswered. Because many of his premises are false, I altered them to be correct which in turn resulted in an illogical sequence of evidence for Marquis’ original conclusion; rendering his argument invalid. After altering the conclusion to follow the revised premises, it only gave a suitable claim for some abortions, rather than the overwhelming majority of abortions.

By committing action the idea of justice becomes more problematic. Medea 's attempt to seek justice leads to a deeper injustice, and the conflicts of justice and natural law is revealed to be unattainable. Thus, even as Euripides identifies the injustice of gender roles, he also declines to blame external forces for all displays of evil actions. Ultimately it was Medea’s choice to kill her children but Euripides shows that striving for social injustice can become an excuse for the loss of
