Ladies and gentlemen, we are here today to discuss the actions of Mildred turning in her husband for his twenty plus amount of hidden books. In Fahrenheit 451, Mildred’s actions are not justified because Montag provided a safe life for her and marriage vows state to stand by your significant other through thick and thin. On the other hand, Mildred was raised in a society that did not educate her in what was right or wrong. She did not want to get in trouble, risking the loss of her “family” who she favored over her husband, Montag. Also Mildred’s actions were justified because, Montag was breaking the law, and even though he’s her husband, she did what she thought was right in hope to not lose everything they had.
Gress’s position is not morally legitimate, and the ethical principles of nonmaleficence, beneficence, and autonomy render it morally wrong. Paternalism is strongly present in this situation: the patients were not asked whether or not they would like to be informed of the new information that their doctor acquired. Furthermore, Dr. Gress stated that he had “an obligation not to notify them” (Munson 328); however, doctors have a duty to tell even the unfortunate truths to their patients. What Dr. Gress decided was, “on the basis of his own values, that he knows what is best for another person” (Week 2 Ppt Slide 2). Also, he was denying the patients’ autonomy.
She has no respect for her husband and doesn’t show any concern for him. It is further proof that they do not have a true relationship. However, it goes both ways as Curley doesn’t trust his wife at all. He automatically assumes that she is making romantic advances on Slim when he can’t find her around the ranch (pg 54, p6). Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all.
Being a social worker and reading this book made me so upset. One of the most obvious issues in this book is Henrietta did not give permission for doctors to take her cells. Her story is a prime example of the ethical tradeoffs the scientific community struggles with in pursuit
Henrietta Lacks’s daughter Deborah once stated “If our mother cells done so much for medicine, how come her family can’t afford to see no doctors?” (Skloot 9). The lack of ethics also points to another theme of Henrietta’s story, discoveries are more than the discovery itself, there are always people behind them. Deborah’s words also emphasize the human side
Henrietta’s family most likely did not want to talk about either. Skloot might not know the details of Henrietta’s final moments. These choices affect the chapter by only focusing on the important parts of Henrietta’s death. The boys wanting to donate blood and Henrietta wanting her children taken care of. It causes the reader to remember Henrietta as a nice woman who cared for many and had many care about her too; instead of a woman who died with such pain and
As stated before, Mildred conforms to society. She doesn’t question why, she just does it. When Montag begins to think differently about his job and how burning books may be wrong, Mildred defends society’s view. “"Montag, take my word for it, I 've had to read a few in my time, to know what I was about, and the books say nothing! Nothing you can teach or believe.
They argue that Cece doesn’t tell them all her secrets like el Deafo or how she can use the microphone to hear where her teacher is in the building. Friends don’t like it when other friends keep secrets from them. The argument that i support is that Cece is able to build relationships and her partial defense doesn’t interfere. They said that Cece couldn’t hear them, but i say that she could hear them just fine but she couldn’t understand them. Cece made relationships with the others because she’s made friendships already with kids from her neighborhood that are there for her.
The governess progressively believes in things around her that are pseudo and assumed. Nobody else at Bly can see the ghosts that she claims even when the children tried to believe her, they just could not see the ghosts she could see. Things slowly but surely fell apart at Bly, and it seemed to start right when the governess made assumptions about the ghosts she had met. The governess had done many things at Bly, but proving her insanity is something she could not
Having the fear of being mistreated and used for experimentation made the Lacks’ even more upset about Henrietta’s death. They were not educated so when the doctor would say something scientific they would trust every word while not even understanding what he was saying. This part of informed consent was stressed throughout the book because in today’s society most people have enough education to have a general idea what is going on when they are at the hospital about to have a procedure done, making it seem
