People all around the world have no chance of surviving simple to treat diseases or sicknesses due to the fact that they can’t afford health insurance. In the book, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” it says “...the last thing he remembered before falling unconscious under the anesthesia was a doctor saying his mother’s cells were one of the most important things that had ever happened to medicine. Sonny woke up more than $125,000 in debt because he didn’t have health insurance to cover the surgery (Lacks 306).” This quote shows how people that can’t afford health insurance because they are poor are expected to pay the money for the surgery. His own mother’s cells were the biggest breakthrough in medicine history but her son couldn’t afford health insurance. This is something that is happening all over our world today.
In the case of Henrietta Lacks and her family, the mistreatment of doctors and lack of informed consent defined nearly 60 years of the family’s history. Henrietta Lacks and her children had little to no information about serious medical procedures and the use of Henrietta’s cells in research. Henrietta’s cells launched a multibillion-dollar industry without her consent and doctors even took advantage of her children’s lack of education to continue their research without questions: “[Doctor] did not explain why he was having someone draw blood from Deborah… he wrote a phone number and told her to use it for making more appointments to give more blood” (188). Deborah did not have the knowledge to understand the demands or requests the doctors made of her, and the doctors did not inform her explicitly. Skloot showed that the lack of consent and uninformed patients, by the use of logical conventions, not only ran through the family’s history but still occurred to them

Roughly around ten years ago my grandpa had a kidney transplant, he waited eight years for one. My mom said how she would never donate anything because the way we come into the world is the way we go it.

In an attempt to remedy the Civil War, amendments were passed in the years after the conflict.The 15th amendment established in March 30, 1870 introduced that no voting rights shall not be denied in the United States or by any state because of race, color or previous conditions of work. Yet most African Americans will never get to vote. The Jim Crow Laws in the South found a way around the 15th amendment to deny the right to vote to most freed slaves. This was done mostly by the use of literacy test, poll taxes and intimidation and terror.

Second, a handful of insurance companies deny customers needed care when all requirements are in order, and many times ending in death.
