The doctors failed to use a properly consenting patient, neglected Charlie’s emotional state, and failed to conduct proper research. If Charlie had a caretaker who could give consent on his behalf, similar to a minor, an operation of this sort could be ethical. Moreover, it could be ethical if the doctors’ research and further develop their theory before using a human test subject, and pay close attention to Charlie’s emotional and mental health.

The BC Medical journal called the epidemic, “The greatest medical holocaust in history” (Skowronski and Kendall). Little did they know back in 1918 that the virus was only going to adapt and create different strains. It was the beginning of one wicked issue that future generations were going to have to combat and attempt to finally eradicate. The virus is destructive due to the fact that it isn’t just one strain that we can just eradicate.
This shows that doctors nowadays should not try and create and human. Trying to create a human would require doctors to changing stuff in the
The children seem have lost touch with human morality, due to the technology acting as parent. There is a fine line between helpful technology and hurtful technology. As the human race moves forward, we must be careful in not crossing that line. If the line is crossed, the human race risks losing its humanity. Lydia and George finally “realized why those other screams had sounded familiar” (Bradbury 10).

The eradication of smallpox in the year 1979, is perhaps one of the greatest highlights in vaccinology. Also, outbreaks of numerous contagious diseases like measles, chicken pox, tuberculosis, yellow fever, rubella, only to mention a few, have been greatly contained by vaccines ain a way that no other physical or chemical component has accomplished. This is because, physical barriers often fail, due to the continuous movement or air, which contributes to the transmission of many diseases.

Firstly, the essay explains about the financial problem that is likely to occur in order to supply sufficient amount of vaccines and antivirals to all parties. Next, poor business continuity management plans could possibly lead to the declination of economy. Lastly, the unsteady infectivity of the virus in all places could potentially result in the disorganization of the governmental responsibilities as the virus is lethally dangerous. It is believed that financial problem is the most crucial as without it the government can easily tolerate the other problems. Therefore, it could be concluded that the flu pandemic is fearsome by the effect itself and by the consequences that will impact the economic and societal of a country and the government should have been aware in this much earlier in order to avoid chaotic
Not all tests are relevant to human health. Certain scientific tests can cause human diseases instead of having a good effect. Testing on animals for medical research is not helpful because it can give us wrong answers. Many tests done on animals can provide misleading results. Animals die or suffer every single day in laboratories without any protection from grievous test.
Feminism does show the flaws that masculinity has yet ignored or seen as “boys will be boys” type of idea, but it’ll slightly blind us from the main point of it all, to be human. We were born with the abilities such as emotions, thinking, interacting and expressing. The idea of masculinity suppresses a lot of the ideals of being human and more of turning us into a robot with simple instructions to follow.

Comparing and Contrasting Utopia to Harrison Bergeron Rosalie Roffler | Language Arts Per. 3 | September 11, 2016 How can two almost opposite societies have so much in common?
