I will be discussing how the care in David story was dehumanized by using the humanizing framework. “Ashely has a learning difficulty “This is lack of capacity because Ashely can’t speak properly and do not have much of understanding but however he has the right to make decision and choices. Ashely was treated horribly in the hospital; the care professional wasn’t communicating with the parents or Ashely.
