They do not cover anything with the laziness of Dove, Dusty, and the sick young girl, Isannah. One of the main conflicts of the book is Johnny’s hand. Most of the people that read the book believes that Dove is the main reason his hand is now deform. But in the movie, Ms. Lapham is. On the other hand, the book clarifies that Johnny cannot get his hand fix, but in contrast of the movie, Dr. Warren offers to fix it for him.
Even though the medical community thought the Lees were doing everything to worsen Lia’s condition by stopping all medication, the reasoning behind their actions shows otherwise. During Lia’s critical condition the Lees had decided to go ahead with withdrawing her medications even after being informed of the possible dangers of doing so, “Nao Kao demanded that Lia’s subclavian line to be removed, and all her medications discontinued. Parents understand that the antibiotics are fighting a severe infection and that without medication Lia may get her infection back and die sooner. They understand that once we remove IV, a new line will NOT be replaced” (175). Although it sounds bad to want to put an end to the medication Lia was receiving, the Lees seemed to think that Lia was so sick she might die, and wanted to stop treatment because they thought the medicine is what was killing her.
“...The hunting accident...the leg had been literally blasted off” (O’Connor 484), this sentence mentioned by the author symbolizes Hulga’s personality, because when something very valuable is taken away from someone and they are aware of it, but are not able to react to it, it could change a person drastically. Hulga could have been a totally different women if she had her leg, that’s why the author decided to give her a wooden leg. In the story the author mentions how Hulga does not care about her appearance at all. When she goes on a date with Manley Pointer she wears a dirty white shirt, applies Vapex as perfume, and never smiles. “...She didn’t like dogs or cats or birds or flowers or nature or nice young men” (O’Connor 485), Hulga’s personality might be like this because of her wooden leg.
Mary also had enough influence to “stop” Goody Proctor from being totally accused in court and said “But I never see no sign you ever sent your spirit out to hurt no one, and seeing I do live so closely with you, they dismissed it” (Miller Act II). People with enough sense know this too and fear starts to creep into those wondering if they will be accused or not. The girls and others also knew that once they accused someone, she would either have to confess or deny being a witch and be killed: “Hale: They have confessed it. Proctor: And why not, if they must hang for denyin’ it? There are them that will swear to anything before they’ll hang; have you never thought of that” (Miller)?
And why do they have to ban just opioids when many other common drugs could have the same drug effects on people? To answer the first question, I would say the government has looked through this whole thing and just want to get rid of the opioids for the sake of them looking good. It was just all about getting rid of them to decrease the amount of opioid abuse and just giving the people who really need it other alternatives that look like they work because the alternatives they give are un-called for like a massage and therapy every day (seemingly impossible to do with the problem of having to go to work). To answer the second question, I believe they would say that opioids have the strongest effect on people other than all the other prescription drugs out
This is especially true in the way Ismene reacts to the laws Creon puts in place. Under Creons authority, she refused to help even her sister bury her own brother. She was so obedient to Creon she wouldn’t even help her own family. Even when Antigone tries to tell her about how they were family and her brother deserved a proper burial, Ismene said: “They mean a great deal to me; but I have no strength. To break laws that were made for the public good.” She is so obedient to Creon she even goes as far as to claim the laws set in place are for “public good.” This can be linked to how during the experiments mentioned in The Perils of Obedience the testers would sometimes do everything asked of them, no questions.
Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself. This is an awful situation, but Emily did not plan on having the girl kill herself, she didn't plan on it at all like Thomas did. Emily thought what the girl had done was wrong and she had the right to make her leave the home, it may be cruel but it doesn't deserve a punishment as severe as death. Thomas Rogers, on the other hand, does need that punishment because nothing has happened yet. ¨There was never a word against us.
The last thing she does by expressing herself is how she stuck up for one of her formal friends and how she stuck up for herself at the end of the book. She stuck up against IT. She was trying to say no but Andy Evans wasn’t stopping for anything at all. On page 194, “I follow the sound, pushing off the wall, pushing Andy Evans off-balance, stumbling into the broken sink.” This shows that she is a strong person. And on page 195,”I hold it to Andy Evans 's neck.
They also give reasons such as there are no bruises on her face, they never saw them argue, and why didn 't she leave. These stereotypes are used against all battered women however, most abusers choose parts of body that are covered and no one can see and they are really nice around other people, but very cruel to their wife. Also, one of victim 's Sister in-law said there was a car and she could have left when he was away, but Shirley insist he chained her in the basement when he leaves. This stereotypes about battered women make Shirley and many other women who are battered not to press charges and when they do nobody believes them.
Yazmine promised me she would stop doing drugs and drinking and hanging out with those kinds of people. She also told me I shouldn’t tell my parents or her parents about this because she would handle it herself. I had been consulting with my mother the entire time because I was unsure what to do. I told Yazmine I had told my mother but neither of us had any intentions of exposing her to her parents. I will never know whether she told her parents.
