Then when she discovered that her husband was really alive they thought she was so overcome with joy that she died when really she became extremely sad again because she was back where she had been before the incident.

He had been far from the scene of the accident, and did not even know there had been one. He stood amazed at Josephine’s piercing cry; at Richards’ quick motion to screen him from the view of his wife.” (Chopin 3). This story shows a lot of Dramatic Irony.

A baby shouldn't come into the world unwanted. Many people still argue that adoption is a second choice, but most women don't want to carry the baby for full term because it is more difficult for them while a abortion is easier. Refusing a woman their right is lowering our status down to inferior and that is taking away our rights of equality. Woman should not have to carry around children without a choice.

When the fatal ailment named smallpox claimed both of her parents’ lives. When she witnessed Amari crying, there was a flashback in the novel to when she had “wept bitterly when her mother had died of disease as well, but not one tear had given her a bite to eat or a place to stay” (Draper 80).

Two problems arise from this statement. The first is that this statement relies on the assumption that parents will want to abort a foetus with a severe birth defect and hence in fear of this recommends that parents be denied the choice for prenatal testing altogether. It is not fair to eliminate the right to choice that the parents have based on a preconceived expectation. The second problem is that the statement automatically appears to assume that abortion is a morally wrong outcome whereas this is not always the case, as justified by my use of the act utilitarianism moral
“The Story of an Hour”, created by Kate Chopin, is a short story that shows the emotions of a new-found widow in a time where women’s rights aren’t as they are today. The story starts off by introducing Mrs. Mallard as only a woman with great heart trouble who needs to be taken care of as she is presented with the news of her, supposedly, dead husband. She later finds that the death of her husband transformed from heartache to freedom and becomes spontaneously overjoyed.
