The audience recognizes that although abortion is cruel, it is needed. However, abortion itself is also cruel considering that it is also unfair to kill the fetus before it was born. Here, we can understand Sallie Tisdale’s inner conflict. She states that “[a]bortion is the narrowest edge between kindness and cruelty” (Tisdale 420). If she shows kindness to the women who wants to abort their children, the fetus would have to be killed.
Perry’s sister, Barbara viewpoint is that if any person kills somebody and had the intent and you know you have done something wrong, you are guilty and should take responsibility for your actions. Barbara states “Your letter implies that the blame of all your problems is that of someone else, but never you. I do admit that you are intelligent, and your vocabulary is excellent, and I do feel you can do anything you decide to do and do it well but what exactly, so you want to and are you willing to work and make an honest effort to attain whatever it is you choose to do? Nothing good comes easy and I’m sure you’ve heard this many time but once more won’t hurt” (141). She points out that he needs to stop blaming the world for his problems and start taking his actions into his own hands.
One example of violence is when Scout beat up Francis for calling her dad a negro lover. “This time, I split my knuckle to the bone on his front teeth. My left impaired, I sailed in with my right, nut not for long” (Lee 112). Another example of violence is when Scout beat up Walter Cunningham because she thinks that he got her in trouble. “‘He made me start off on the wrong foot.’… ‘He didn’t have any lunch,’” (Lee 30).
For black women, however, the institution of slavery affected their psychological states, their marriages, and their family life. Slaves were frequently beaten, often without reason or cause. Their husbands were often sold to neighboring plantations, and female slaves were often terrorized by their male masters, ruining the sanctity of marriage amongst slave households (Brinkley 261). The children of female slaves were also often sold to other plantations, ripping apart the last remaining family that a female slave possessed (Northup, 12 Years a Slave). The constant auctioning of slaves and their children disturbed a female slaves ability to care for her children, and the sanctity of the family was ruined by the institution.
The sound of a weapon that snatches the life of an innocent person. The worry of a mother to knows that his son will not return home. The tears of the children when they saw how the soldiers killed other people mercilessly. It would be better if we decide to change the racial hatred for the compression, the luxuries for humility, the missiles for helping the people who live in poverty. All these terrible things we can prevent by means of a passive dialogue.
This is because the criminal got away with a sentence barely equating to what he did in the first place, which I find disgustingly unjust and unacceptable. Although the prospect of people getting abused and mistreated seems wrong and unfair, the crimes they committed justify their treatment. If you break the rules, you must suffer the consequences. However, there is a fine line between giving them what they deserve and treating them so badly they are dehumanised and I believe guards in Shawshank took it too far. An example of this is when young prisoner Tommy is shot dead as a precaution.
In view of everyone is created equal, juveniles should also be punished equally. There are lots of reasons for each side of the argument, justice Elena Kagan believes that juveniles should not be tried as adults because of their “immaturity, impetuosity, and failure to appreciate the risks and consequences.” However, Justice Alito believes that they should be tried because “mandatory sentences reflected the will of American Society that heinous crimes committed by juveniles should always be punished.” Knowing I am a juvenile that could be affected by this, I completely agree with Justice Alito because the offender knows that what they are doing is wrong, the victims and their families deserve justice, they do not have underdeveloped brains and as hard it is to believe some juveniles enjoy hurting as well as taking the life of human beings. Kids are constantly taught from a young age the difference between right and wrong whether it is at school or at home. For example, they are taught that injuring other kids is wrong because it is painful to them. As time progresses, they learn that more
Children that are tried as an adult and receive a guilty sentence will put the adolescent at risk, the child will not have a punishment limit, and the hopes of the child will be corrupted. The adolescents still have a whole life to go through and having the child tried as an adult will be a risk. Most people think that if a child is roomed with an adult then everything will be fine because the adult will protect the child; what the people do not know is what the criminals can do. In Parsell personal experience, he stated “I [also] had been raped in prison at 17…On my first day, I was drugged, gang raped, and turned into sexual chattel” (The New York Times) and what sexual chattel signifies is turning an innocent person into an
The authors of this widely cited research paper have done a commendable job by correlating the legal and psychiatric systems with their social implications. Hutchinson and Martin argue that the detention of children is in contravention of the Human Rights as provided by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CROC). A report released by Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission stated that the country had failed to take appropriate steps to protect and promote the mental health of the children under detention and therefore, breached Article 37 of the CROC. Research suggests that the effect of detention has more detrimental impact on mental health of children than on adults and it should be used as last resort as it is not in the best interest of refugee
Slavery About 4 million African Americans died after being captured in Africa. The whites thought they had authority over the blacks and they made sure they knew it by killing blacks and treating as if they weren 't people but things. Blacks and whites are equal and so over time slavery was no more but it 's still bad that there was slavery in the first place.There 's various reasons of why slavery is bad each as bad as the next. Slaves were African Americans that were captured so that they could be actioned of and sold as a slave. Slavery is bad because it is an abuse of blacks.Slaves owners would abuse their slaves by beating them when they did something wrong, or sometimes even starve them.
Only that they know who are the enemy, and how to kill. The child soldiers should be given amnesty as they don’t know what they are doing is wrong, that they are being manipulated into doing things, only that they are threatened if they don’t do as they are told. When we are kids the first thing we learn is what is good, and what is bad to do. Often the child soldiers parents are dead, or the parents are the ones who sent the kids to war. And at a young age without the schooling, or someone telling them what is good, they are taught that killing the enemy is good.
In Source C it states, “But we were unjustly dragged by the cruel hand of power from our dearest friends.” The slaves are saying that slavery separates them from their friends and more importantly, their families. This petition is trying to persuade others to put an end to slavery. The slaves are saying that slavery is unnecessary and needs to be stopped. Slavery also displays that the slave did not have the same amount of equality as others. Another quote that additionally proves the point of slaves not being equal is, “Our children are also taken from us by force and sent many miles from us…” This quote furthermore displays how slave’s children are taken away and sent far away.
Ewell would lie about the occurrence between Mayella and Tom. One of the first reasons Mr. Ewell would lie is he is the one who hurt his daughter. In the novel Atticus was trying to prove to the jury that it is possible that Mr. Ewell beat up his daughter. Scout says to herself, “…Atticus was trying to show, it seemed to me, that Mr. Ewell could have beaten up Mayella.”(Lee 238). Atticus made it very easy for the court to see that it was a grand possibility that Mr. Ewell indeed beat up his own daughter for wanting to be with a black man.
Anderson contradicts himself here because he can’t have it both ways. On one hand, he argues that mascots were created as stereotypes. But on the other hand, he argues that it interferes with the game. Although stereotypes may seem trivial, it is in fact crucial in today’s concern over naming mascots and racial profiling. Broecker concludes that, “Society is fraught with division.
