Although there are many positive aspects of medically assisted suicide, there are also many negative aspects. Those who disagree with assisted suicide feel as though it is unethical. How is it ever right for us to purposefully kill another human being. As a health care providers role, it is their duty to do whatever they can to maintain the wellness of their patient. According to 8 Main Pros and Cons of Legalizing Physician Assisted Suicide (2014), all health care providers must follow the Hippocratic Oath, which in it states that physicians are unable to give deadly medications to a patient, whether requested or not and they aren’t allowed to suggest it to a terminally ill patient either.
Although they rejected his autonomy the doctors gave him alternatives to decide upon regarding his decision to die. Even though the psychiatrist declared Donald was fully competent, it doesn’t mean he was in the right emotional mindset to make a life decision. In one day he lost everything that we as humans need to function on a daily basis, and he also lost his dad whom he was extremely close to. It is logical to argue that Donald’s decision to die was clouded by those factors to a point that he couldn’t see that the treatment were best for
As in a transcendental utopian society, there is no way to seek out medical help, as you are out by yourself, with whatever you need as a necessity. This is not only dangerous, but can also be fatal, as if you injure yourself badly when alone and do not seek proper medical help, you can die easily. Also, an extreme isolation from any human can be dangerous. As Donald Hebb stated, “that merely taking away the usual sights, sounds, and bodily contacts from a healthy university student for a few days can shake him, right down to the base,” (Hebb, American Psychologist). This came after a controversial study by McGill University, where they separated University students from the outside world, by putting them in soundproof rooms for as long as they could stand it.
So, as we can see this is not very smart of Odysseus to listen to the Sirens, and he knows that if he goes down to the Sirens he will die. Luckily, Odysseus does not break through the rope that is holding him back. The lesson that I learned from this scene in the Odyssey is that never fall for temptation. This applies to real life because you have a choice and you should never fall to do drugs. People might say it is okay, but you should know that in the end you could get addicted and die from drug
When George heard this, he decided that if Lennie was going to die, he wanted him to die peacefully and painlessly; therefore causing George to shoot Lennie. If Curly hadn't ran after Lennie looking to give him a painful death, George would have tried to save Lennie and keep him alive instead of deciding to shoot him. This shows how other people actions can affect someone too. People will respond differently to situations depending on who's around them, their past experiences, and what other people are doing. These are only some of the factors to why someone might act one way in a situation and another person might act differently in the same situation.
If he does not kill Lennie himself, matters will be much worse. Seeing a best friend die an excruciating death is the last thing anyone would want to see unfold before their eyes. Taking his soulmate away from this world takes a significant load off George’s shoulders, but most importantly prevents others from being harmed as well. George taking matters into his own hands once he finds Lennie hiding in the bush is the best decision he could have ever made. Even though it can be emotionally hard to pull the trigger on his best friend, he does something he will never regret.
He knows that it is morally wrong to steal someone else’s property. He thinks that his wife is worth saving and that he would face the consequences later. He hopes that the judge would feel sorry for him and he would not be sent to jail but that he would have to make restitution to the druggist for the medication he had stolen. Alesia, the female subject, said that she would not steal the medicine. She said that she would consider borrowing a loan from a bank or friend/ family member to pay for the medication.
Throughout John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, many idolize Augustus’ optimism as the greatest way to combat the disastrous effects of cancer, allowing him to find joy and excitement in life. For Augustus, the optimistic mindset is controlling, by demanding an expectation to leave a legacy behind. As a result, this optimism influences his happiness being solely dependant on achieving legacy rather than on what he so desperately desires: independence. I argue that optimism is not the ultimate coping mechanism because it builds up false hope not allowing Augustus to be realistic about his imminent death. His optimism is generated from and proven in this essay through his and Hazel’s parents lack of discipline providing encouragements to pursue
In the end, George murdering his friend was well justified. Although, Lennie’s actions probably weren’t his fault, with him not being able to learn from his actions and remember that his own strength is too much for him that he became a threat. George, pained to do it, knew what was best for Lennie and other people/animals, and had to end his life. Overall, even though George had to make some pretty drastic decisions and someone’s life got taken away, it was all for the best and nothing bad will no longer happen and who knows, maybe George will get to live his
