The parents and doctor of severely deformed Siamese twins joined at the frontal lobe of the brain have been accused of attempting to murder the infants by withholding medical care…can you blame them?...’”(Kingsolver 206). From this evidence, individuals can assume that this problem is sad but because of the other social justice issues, they have an excuse, even though, these events are spiteful in many ways.

According to Senator Smith, the American people were terrified of speaking out their mind in fear that they would become suspected as a Communist and that the Freedom of Speech was being used in a terrible manner that it could not be used by some. Unfortunately, after speaking out against McCarthy, Senator Smith was removed from the Senate was replaced with Senator Richard M. Nixon. Meanwhile, in The Crucible by Arthur Miller, Rebecca Nurse took on a role similar to the role that Senator Margaret Chase took. In Act 1, when Parris acknowledges the idea that his daughter, Betty, and the other sick girls might be bewitched, Rebecca Nurse assures him that it is just a phase in which the children want some attention. As Parris insists that the odd behavior of the girls is a result of witchcraft, Rebecca Nurse excuses herself and refuses to take part of the witch hunt just as Senator Smith had refused to take part in the movement to look for Communists.
