In “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”, Rebecca Skloot analyzes ethics in past scientific/medical studies, specifically Henrietta Lack’s case, to alter the way the reader sees how modern medicine came to be. Doctors took the cancer cells of a young, poor, African-American woman diagnosed with cervix cancer in 1951, without her consent, and used them to grow an immortal cell line that has made millions of dollars and is still used today. Skloot shows the effect Henrietta’s infamous cells (HeLa cells) have had on the scientific community presently and show the negative effect it has had on her family.

This essay discusses the unfortunate death of a Mexican teenager in 2003 by the name of Jesica Santillan. Jesica Santillan was a 17-year-old who mistakenly died after she received incompatible organs in the course of a transplant surgery at the Duke University Hospital (Burns, Bradley, Langan & Weiner, 2011). Many questioned how one of the nation’s top medical centers could make such a fatal mistake as given a donor a mismatched blood type of organs. Jesica parents smuggled her in from Mexico hoping to find a cure for a heart and lung disorder that otherwise was not able to be treated in her country.

President Barack Obama hinted as much Thursday when he said that the attackers may have had "mixed motives."
