The choice of using Charlie Gordon in Daniel Keyes’ book, Flowers for Algernon, for an intelligence altering surgery was unethical and biased. The first reason that Charlie should not have been chosen for the surgery is that it left him and his life in worse condition than when before the surgery. “ I dont want Miss Kinnian to feel sorry for me. Evry body feels sorry at the factery and I dont want that eather so Im going some place where nobody knows that Charlie Gordon was once a genus and now he cant reed a book or rite good” (Keyes 210). This quote illustrates that Charlie has
Abortion is a murder. It is the intentionally killing of a human being and it is also can be considered as a war on the unborn which are obviously defenseless and voiceless. A. Abortion denies the right of the eternal being to have a mortal experience and also learning experience in this world. “I believe the freedom to choose my course in life but I do not believe I am free to choose the consequences of my
Various opinions that are worth thinking and considering exists in the argument of abortion although it is religiously refused, medically unsafe, and irresponsible, some people still regard it as a woman’s right. (procon.org) One of the first reasons I don’t support abortion is that abortion defines the meaning of life and death. Kerby discusses in her article “Arguments against Abortion” medical reasons why abortion should not be legalized, he asked an important question that should have a strict answer within our community, isn’t death declared with a cessation of a heartbeat? Then why doesn’t onset of a heartbeat define life? And if a heartbeat defines life, then abortion should definitely be outlawed.
In conclusion, the idea of legalizing euthanasia could be very detrimental and could cause more misfortune than good. Doctors were placed on Earth to fulfill the one purpose that was given to them and that is to prolong the lives of patients and to abide by the Hippocratic Oath. With euthanasia being illegal in the majority
Conversely those who believe that euthanasia will bring relief to those whose unbearable pain and suffering has rendered their quality of life not worth preserving. Euthanasia however has no place in our society, as it is a blatant violation of the fundamental human right to life, from a moral and ethical standpoint. The legalization of euthanasia could be the initiation of a “slippery slope”, which promulgates that the acceptance of voluntary euthanasia might ultimately lead to involuntary euthanasia and other untenable practices (Lewis 2007). A study conducted in the
In his article ‘A Problem for the Idea of Voluntary Euthanasia’ Neil Campbell talks about the ethics behind the voluntary decision and thinks that voluntary euthanasia does not really exist. He argues against euthanasia and says that when those terminally ill patients take the decision of ending their lives, the decision was not freely chosen, but was the result of them undergoing excruciating pain. (Campbell, 1999, p. 242). His argument is presented in a way to support the opponents’ claim by denying that voluntary euthanasia exists and that it is all psychological and not
I confessed that i may Obtain Absolution; but now that falsehood lies heavier at my heart then any other sin”(“Frankenstein” Mary Shelley) In this Medieval time, it seems you are Guilty before Proven Guilty!. Not only are you Guilty but they must not care about anyone's Mental Sanity. If Justine was having mental issues, If she was Sick it was not fair of them to take her statement then. They should Have waited until she was in her right mind. It really seems like they were not going to give her a fair
This includes marriage, employment, and insurance. Insurers have a strong interest in treating a genetic predisposition as a pre-existing condition and to exempt it from coverage. But this would be manifestly unfair since there is nothing that a person can do to avoid being affected by such a predisposition. The positions in the literature vary, nonetheless, with respect to the degree to which the differentiation between, and the use of, classifiers are deemed offensive, Somek (2003). Marital Discrimination is also a form of genetic discrimination.
Thesis Statement: Unethical medical practices are unacceptable procedures that can be used for the benefit of mankind. Issues in unethical procedures in the medical field are common context discussed in debates. The main question among these procedures is its violation in the moral context of such activities. Such procedures do not satisfy laws, principles and theories based on the accepted norms and ideas and influenced by customs, cultures and beliefs that are generalized as good. However, results on some unethical procedures brought beneficial results on mankind such as the development of polio vaccine and discovery of human telomerase which was made possible in the extraction of Henrietta Lacks’ cells without her consent.
Government’s merciless action to prohibit abortion without the victim’s sentiment is not bringing any egalitarianism in society. It is exacerbating victim’s unbearable affliction. A multitude of anti-abortionists asserts that abortion is a way of evading responsibility. Of course, giving up on children can be irresponsible, but where is the rapist’s responsibility in all of this? It is unfair for females to carry all the consequences.
