Her clinic was spread verbally and helped aid more than four hundred women total in the ten days it was operating (Posts about Comstock Law on Margaret Sanger Paper Project). This clinic eventually got shut down ten days later by the police (Feldt). After a few more attempts of reopening the clinic, the police say Margaret Sanger’s actions as a nuisance and requested that she would be evicted by her landlord. Sanger was convicted and was proposed a temporary sentence if she promised not to repeat her actions that got her into the mess she made previously prior to her arrested, but she ended up refusing to compel to the promise. As a result of her declining to make the promise, she was given an option of a fine or a jail sentence.
When she couldn’t cope with her well of sadness and shame, she did the only thing she knew how to do; she went against her own convictions and turned to prescrip- tion drugs. If she’d only had the tools and resources available in this guide, she may have come to terms with her shipwrecked life and found some peace. Luckily for us, she never had to deal with cancer, as that could have been the end of her. You don’t have to wind up in that old paradigm either. Welcome to the Land of Non-Toxic.
Henrietta Lacks was a young black woman who was diagnosed with cervical cancer at John Hopkins Hospital. Her doctor collected cancerous cells and healthy cells from her cervix and gave them to the cancer researcher, George Otto Gey, who was trying to keep cells alive for more than a couple days. Henrietta endured intense radium treatments, but she still died at the age of 31, leaving her husband and five children behind. An amazing discovery was made Henrietta’s cell were immortal. Racism is prevalent in this book through the limited availability of healthcare, unethical behaviors of the doctors, and how racism affected her family.
Irene Fogel Weiss is a survivor of the holocaust. She says, “Thinking you were going to take a shower when in fact you were going to the gas chambers - that was the ultimate deceit.” Weiss was lucky in many ways. When her group was being distributed to either the gas chambers or slave labor, she was mistaken as an older girls. She claims, “This was the first chance I had to survive.” Weiss experienced many horrific things, but luckily, she found her two aunts when she was sent to Auschwitz Birkenau. She was later sent on the death walk when Soviets came to liberate the camps.
Halpanny and Newman 1998 wrote: In the final months of her life, Annie Lindsell’s struggle to be allowed to die with dignity became front page news, at the end of October 1997; she won a High Court action that allowed her doctor to administer potentially lethal pain-relieving drugs to prevent her from choking to death. This High Court victory opened up the debate on Euthanasia and the laws surrounding physician’s assisted suicide. Like Annie there are many people lying in our nation’s hospital simply waiting to die, since there are nothing humanly possible that can be done to save their lives. Many of them have a debilitating chronic disease that robs them of the simple tasks such as activities of daily living (bathing, eating, etc.) and ultimately their lives.
So when he pulled over at the hospital, he was arrested and then questioned as Rain was frantically rushed to the ER.

The last way people treat is by limiting the thing that is said to people with mental illness. In Amy Bloom’s “Silver Water”, She demonstrates the idea that people with mental illness are treated and looked at different by most normal people; Once Rose was diagnosed with her mental illness her family acted different to her as she sent to many doctors who wouldn 't help her with this illness. In the beginning of the “Silver Water” the family learn that Rose has a mental illness and her parents have to make a decision to do with her. Her father who is a psychiatrist didn 't want to sent her away because he thought that there was nothing wrong with her but her mother see that there is something wrong with Rose. Rose’s parents get in the huge argument about what is happening to Rose but her father is in full denial “”She is going off” “What is that your professional Opinion?...I 'm sorry I didn 't mean to snap on you…have you talked to her””(1).
In Mill’s Utilitarian her action was justifiable and selfless, rather than have the whole group die an incurable transmitted disease it was in the groups best interest to eliminate the few infected ones for the survival of the whole crew. Kant will most certainly disagree with this because in Kant’s system, `all our moral duties are expressed in the form of categorical imperatives’ (Vaughn, pg. 164). His philosophical mindset coincides with Dale, who believe every life is important even when his wife was dying of cancer he still could not accept her fate. Both dale and Kant believe any interior motives to action cannot be regarded as good.
Although she was never pregnant and had never gone through an abortion, she had given advice to people in favor of supporting abortion and also did an abortion surgery on a patient before. This led her to a cycle of bad Karma; her life was ruined. All the money she had was spent on healing her sickness, serious cases of headaches, backaches, and stomachaches, but she never knew what the cause of these weird symptoms were. She later finds out that the reason for her pain comes from her bad deeds, so she consulted the monk to have her problems solved. After the process, she recovered from the pain, when all the monk did was just giving Metta Pavana (love and kindness) to the spirits the nurse had harmed and convinced them to forgive her for her sins.
Presuming The Machine of Death was invented, it would only make things worse because people would be paranoid and stressed about what The Machine Of Death told them what their cause of death would be. In the story Almond by John Chernega, the main character gets a prediction from The Machine Of Death, and it says cancer. She then later goes and gets a checkup at the doctor, and the doctor tells her she a healthy as can be. So she gets stressed and keeps going back to the machine thinking that the machine made an error. She then gets informed that the machine never makes errors, so she lives with the paranoia that she could get cancer at any time or stressed that the machine might have gotten her prediction wrong.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a book written by Rebecca Skloot. Chapter 1 begins shortly after Henrietta’s daughter, Deborah, and her son, Joe, were born. After those two were born, she then began to experience vaginal bleeding at the wrong time of the month. Feeling like something was wrong, Henrietta rushed to the doctor.

Lacks. Henrietta was unable to walk, her “abdomen hurt and she could barley urinate”(Skool 64). Because of this checked in full time at John Hopkins hospital hoping that her procedures and treatment would keep going as usual. Mrs. Lacks wasn’t a negative person nor was she inconsiderate; she knew her death would soon come.
Melba’s mother, Lois, took it to herself to help her daughter survive. She talked to one of the janitors, in which they heard a doctor mentioning a remedy to help with the scalp infection.

In order to evacuate the hospital in the time frame given to him by the state police, Cook gave Pou instructions on how kill four ICU patients who were obese. Pou defends her actions by stating she was only making the patients comfortable, in a sense that if they allowed the patients to live through the next day it would be as if the patients were living in hell. In July 2006 the doctor and the nurses in connection with the death of the patients were arrested but the charges were later dropped.
