Having a baby will impose a drama change in their lives including their relationship. Because of that, the American man becomes supportive for the girl’s choice of abortion, but at the same time he wants her to have operation. For example, the American man gave his explanation about the relationship, “That’s the only thing that bothers us. It’s the only thing that’s made us unhappy” (Hemingway 201). The American man is evading the responsibilities of fatherhood if the girl decides to do the operation, yet he is trying to maintain his relationship without directly giving pressure on the girl.
While their inner thoughts and opinions are not stated in the story, I used these instances to formulate my opinion on how healthy the relationship is, and where I believe the relationship is going. In my opinion, this is not a healthy relationship. I feel that the girl is highly submissive and easily manipulated by her partner. I also feel that she is too timid to express what she wants to do and just goes along with the decision the American wants. I strongly believe that the American is not fully committed to her and may not want a baby because he does not want to be stuck with her.
Because I don’t care about me.” She’s saying she will do the procedure, just like the man asked her to (Hemingway 477). This decision feels one sided, because Jig did not get to think for herself, and said that so the man would be happy and the tension would go away. Jig is tired of talking about this, as she asks the man “would you please please please please please please please stop talking?” Indicating that she is tired of talking about the abortion (Hemingway 478). When the American tells Jig they can “have everything” she keeps shooting down his statements, and seems more level-headed and in control of herself than she was when the conversation began. This could suggest that when she says “I feel fine” at the end of the story, she really means it.
Macwurter, I would be in full support of her decision to go ahead with Clare’s abortion. Again, given all that have stated throughout the paper as far as the inconvenience to the family as well as the detriments to Clare herself. Clare Macwurter having the baby jus is not the best decision for the family. I would also encourage Mrs. Macwurter to push for John Macwurter to pay for the abortion, even if it is against his moral beliefs. I see it as since he is the father and it is not clear as to if he himself is going to help in the future care of the child, his main responsibility is to follow the wishes of Clare’s parents.
Edna was flabbergasted that Robert did not share with her that he is leaving for Mexico. Edna is very much infatuated with Robert in an immature sense while Robert is mature enough to realize that they cannot have a serious relationship because she is already married. She clings to his hand when he is about to leave and she wants him to write but in return receives a simplistic answer. He knows he cannot further develop his feelings for her, but Edna fails to understand why. Although he tells Edna he is leaving for business matters, he is going to Mexico because he knows he cannot be with Edna and he does not want any more temptations.
So when he says there shouldn’t be a punishment and they should have second chances and couldn’t answer most of the questions or came up with poor answers. When he was asked “have you ever accidentally touched her breasts?” He answered “maybe when I went to grab the remote” so he was clearly making an excuse so it sounds better on his part. When asked “have you ever touched her vaginal area?” he replied “uuuuuuh, no, I uh, think id remember it” which is a very indecisive answer and couldn’t provide a clear answer. Also Jim never told anyone about the interview, so when all things are added up he is clearly lying about the entire situation so he doesn’t get punished for his
When finally arrived home, at first he didn’t want his wife to know about the meet but instead decides to tell her anyways. Her greediness sparked up by the mention of wealth. According to Washington Irving in The Devil and Tom Walker, “Tom might have felt disposed to sell himself to the devil; he was determined not to do so to oblige his wife” (Irving 6). He basically turned down the
Hills Like White Elephants “Hills Like White Elephants” is a dialog between a man a woman. They are talking, but they are not listening to each other. The both realize the relationship is over. The conversation is about making the choice of having an abortion or marriage. Both of these choices are extremes measurements that the man is not willing to take it.
He tries to give himself up for this cause of saving children but he shows that he is not mature enough be able to make a meaningful impact in this perceived problem. It is clearly shown that Holden believes that there is a problem in society. He believes that children need to keep their innocence. He feels that loss of innocence negatively impacts people and feels that he has to save them. We can first see his personal issues about the lack of innocence when he discovers that Stradlater and Jane Gallagher had sex casually with no intention
Beside my stand, others believes Physicians and other medical care people should not involve themselves indirectly causing death; however, if they will not be willing to provide a way to relieve extreme pain when a person 's quality of life is low, then what is the meaning of freedom of choice for citizen is when they cannot choose the right for themselves. Even though, the author had “dreamed of disconnecting” her patient’s respirator, yet every day she forced to “make her death impossible and her life unbearable” (Page 458). As the Physician she “ feel differently toward her than the father toward his son”, and that is why the author did not takes off the respirator; knowing, it would be an easy way for killing the women, since never have the same emotional connection as the father (page 458). Finally, the author never had the admiration feeling for women to be able to convict a murder just as the father has done for his infant. Risking one’s life for someone else is not supporting euthanasia, yet giving peace to those painful souls one’s should not have the guilt to live
