He tries to appeal to the readers’ emotion whenever he can. He uses information that appeals to himself and other readers as opposed to Bruck’s essay. In contrast, in “No Death Penalty” written by Bruck, it seems that the majority of the essay was just quotes and cold hard facts that Bruck found before writing. He quotes Koch several times and tries to convince the reader that Koch’s information is incorrect. Overall, I am more convinced by Koch’s essay than Bruck’s essay just because it appeals to me on a more emotional level, and causes me to want to keep the death penalty.
In the rest of the documents, they are stating about if a war is about to happen and in these they are explaining their war. I believe that these wars are both happening because of teritory. Document 3 (The Art of War by Sun Tzu) is grouped by itself because it doesn't really state whether it's belief is for or against the war. It's using relgion to test the rulers to see who deserves it the most. In the document they are determining that by a set of questions.
Is Altruism the Only Circumstance Organ Donations Should Be Accepted? Should altruism be the only incentive to donate organs?

Lori Kirkland Professor Phillip Lioi Liberal Arts and Sciences/LAC 1254 01 October 2012 Ethical Response to the Movie John Q According to Kant and his three basic insights of thinking John Q did not act in a moral or ethical fashion. As the movie relates, we see that John Q. is put in to a situation wherein he must either accept the fate of his son’s situation and prepare for a funeral or find some way to raise enough funds to pay for an emergency cardiac operation. He accepts the responsibility of fund raising to attempt to gain enough funds for the surgery. Meanwhile, he investigates the coverage of the insurance policy he has through his employer. He finds that time is of the essence and the money from fund raising is not coming quick enough nor does the insurance policy he pays in to each month provide the adequate coverage.
Thomas Merton, in his novel Raids on the Unspeakable, inserts a chapter of meditation in memory of Adolf Eichmann, a Nazi who was one of the main architects of the holocaust. Even though Eichmann oversaw the mass murder of innocents, psychiatrists pronounced him perfectly sane, a verdict that haunts Merton. He believes that sanity is a religious notion, a Christian notion, used only in relation to those who practice Christian faith. Merton suggests that we have no business to equate “sanity with Christianity,” (Merton) and doing so would perhaps corrupt the relationship between the two. Although, Merton obviously understands the importance of forgiveness and cherishes this concept, because he has been quoted saying that “We do not really know how to forgive until we know what it is to be forgiven.
Physician Assisted Suicide Why is it only ethical to die “naturally”, after a long illness filled with highly “un-natural” life extending medical procedures? Over the last twenty years, physician assisted suicides have become a sensitive issue in governmental offices as whether to legalize such an option. Even though many religions prohibit suicide and the intentional killing of others, and some believe it violates a portion of a doctors’ Hippocratic Oath, Physician Assisted Suicide should be a legal option for those with terminal diseases or conditions because reasonable laws can be constructed which prevent abuse and still protect the value of human life. Physician assisted suicide is the voluntary termination of one's own life by administration
I will use a reflective model to describe any changes that I have encountered. In the UK, the system that is in place is the ‘opt in’ approach; this system is a more respectable approach to peoples wishes, individuals have to give their consent by signing the Organ Donation Register (ODR), this would allow their organs to be used for donation after death. However, there is a shortage of organ donors in the UK, making long waiting lists for people on the transplant list and many will die waiting. Some Politicians and the British Medical Association (BMA) would like to see the UK adopt the ‘opt out’ (presumed consent) approach. This would mean that every individual in the UK would be willing to donate their organs after death; this would be done by signing the ‘opt out’ register.
I have always had very strong opinions regarding vaccinations; especially now as a parent and a student in the medical assistant program. An old supervisor of mine believed in not vaccinating his children. He believed that he was injecting a ‘poison’ into his child’s body and he didn’t believe in vaccinations. He felt he was protecting his child by not giving him the vaccinations. I asked him one day, “Have you been vaccinated?” He replied, “Yes.” I then asked him, “Do you have poison in your body then?” He didn’t answer my question.
