The researchers are focusing on children, and how to make their lives better in the long run. The researchers are also focusing on ways to truly make the transgendered person become the opposite sex. I don’t believe it will be very long before transgendered men will be able to get pregnant and carry a child to term. Transgender females may also be able to produce sperm one day. Not very long ago, women were discriminated against just because of their gender.
In the case study 1 ”Controversial Transplant a Success,” Steve Karnowski writes about the case of a 6 year old girl, Molly, who suffered from a genetic disorder that is seldom seen, called Fanconi anemia, which interrupts the body from manufacturing bone marrow and that would lead to her death. In order to solve that problem, her parents thought about the embryos research and decided to pursue that option. After that decision, the doctor fertilized 12 eggs from Lisa, Molly’s mother, and tested 10 of the embryos, froze eight of them, and discarded one embryo that tested positive for the disease. Then, the doctor selected one of the embryos, who they named Adam and who was genetically
In February 2006, Emily Jerry, a two-year old child was at a Cleveland hospital to complete her last series of chemotherapy treatment. Her doctor ordered intravenous chemotherapy solution that was filled incorrectly by a pharmacy technician. The prescription called for 1% saline; however, a lethal amount of 23% saline was given instead, causing her to slip into a coma resulting in death. Eric Cropp, who was the supervising pharmacist signed off on the technician’s work despite her informing him that the mixture did not look right; nonetheless, he approved it. The pharmacy was so busy that day and short staffed, which led to a preventable fatal error that changed Eric’s whole life in a matter of seconds.
As soon as he found out he was a boy he instantly acquired that gender and went on to live as a boy at the age of 14, implying that biology is the overwhelming factor. However, as this was a case study it makes it hard to generalise to the rest of the population. This can also be criticised as being highly unethical, this is because the trauma this situation caused led David and his brother to both commit suicide having a damaging effect on the family’s life. Also, Doctor Money then went on to take advantage of the mother and published invalid results on the case and did further research on 6 others who also ended up committing suicide. This approach can be criticised by Reiner and Gearhart for failing to take into account individual differences.
Nature vs. Nurture The genetic make-up of an individual determines the extent of the development of a person. Nature and nurture has been a common debate for years In the "nature vs. nurture" debate, nurture refers to personal experiences (i.e. empiricism or behaviorism). Nurture refers to your childhood, or how you were brought up. Someone could be born with genes to give them a normal height, but be malnourished in childhood, resulting in stunted growth and a failure to develop as expected.
Neuropathy prevented Ian seeing where his body was which is a petrifying feeling; literally Ian was “The Man who Lost His Body”. It took a year for Ian to stand up safely and six months to put on his sock, this sensory process was long and tedious. This documentary taught me how we are fortunate to have sensory abilities; most people take it for granted because it’s natural. It was unbelievable how Ian recovered from this illness. The doctors told him that he will be in the wheel chair for the rest of his life but he was determined to regain his strength and movement.
This is the beginning of a great hero’s birth. It is at this Vienne clinic that Semmelweis discovers how big of a problem puerperal infection, a bacterial Infection that occurs after child delivery is. Twenty-five to thirty percent of the women who receive hospital care for childbirth either die, or lose their child. He is perplexed by how high the mortality rates are, so he begins to investigate. He is not the first to notice the great number of deaths happening, but he is the first to oppose the idea that they are caused by the hospital’s “poisonous air”.
Should euthanasia be allowed? Euthanasia is a way to relieve ill people’s pain and save them from a terrible illness. Most people choose to do euthanasia because they are terminal patients, and there is no hope to live. Now I will tell you a real story. Ewart was an American who had gotten a disease that causes his organs to shrink for a long time.
They have the notion that it is used for protection against unwanted pregnancy, when there are many other benefits. In the book Dr. Spock’s Baby and Child Care, Dr. Spock states, “Does sex education encourage sex? Many parents are afraid that talking about sex with their teenagers will be taken as permission for the teen to have sex. Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, the more children learn about their sexuality from talking with their parents and teachers and reading accurate books, the less likely they feel compelled to find out for themselves” (2004).
It reveals that these children understand their prognosis even if no one tells them, and explains why they conceal their knowledge from their own parents and medical staff. Adapted from the author’s doctoral thesis, the case study section of this work is, interestingly enough, presented in the form of a play, which takes place on a leukemia ward. Most parents will recognize the various personality types represented by the composite characters in this section. The author’s observations rapidly unfold: there are strict social rules about dying in our society. Children quickly interpret death as an inappropriate topic of conversation with adults (as evidenced by adults’ reactions when children try to discuss it), whereas other children are eager to share information about it.
