The result of the 1945 election was a shock to not only the people of Britain but also the parliamentary parties, one of the main reasons thought to have led to Labour’s victory, was Churchill’s radio broadcast, in which he stated socialism could not be established without a ‘Gestapo’. Source one, an extract from Margaret Thatcher’s book, explains her thoughts when listening to Churchill’s 1945 radio broadcast. Thatcher believes Churchill said was correct in what he said, but his use of the word ‘Gestapo’ was inappropriate, and wasn’t particularly helpful for post-war Britain. However it could be argued Thatcher knew that what Churchill said was a mistake, but as she was part of the same conservative party as he was, she couldn’t admit it. Although, she does admit even she was shocked when listening to the speech, as she explains “the line was not believable”.
Ethical Policy Analysis of the 2004 Flu Vaccine Shortage Politicians are often faced with making decisions that affect all citizens’ health and healthcare options. There are different ways that the situations are assessed and policies are made. Some of these decisions are based on an ethical analysis of the situation, while others are made out of greed and other political reason, and some are just made hastily without any real effort. An important question to consider is also how qualified these politicians are to make decisions on citizens’ health. Many policy failures could have been prevented with proper analysis of the situation and implementation of policies to protect the citizens.
There are many who view embryonic stem cell research as a procedure with many benefits. There are also many who view it as a procedure that is ethically wrong. Despite the promises cloning can provide, opponents view the procedure as morally wrong on ideological grounds while supporters hope that embryonic stem cell research can provide cures for numerous diseases and afflictions. To understand more of the controversy that surrounds embryonic stem cell research, readers must understand the differences and similarities of the two different type of cloning: therapeutic cloning and reproductive cloning. “Therapeutic cloning creates human embryos through cloning in order to harvest their stem cells for medical research; reproductive cloning creates the embryos for human reproduction”.
Although the Socratic seminar and the novel left many questions unanswered for me, it made me understand more why things are they way they are in the healthcare and scientific research industries. It made me look more closely at the specific details health care professional do in their line of work. In society, money is the key to getting things to happen. It is inferred by the book that informed consent and bioethics are not as important as the appropriation of funds for research. I can tell that this idea is a huge controversy among different individuals.
Skloot’s purpose of telling Lack’s story does not come without the terrifying discovery of human experimentation. Researchers claim their experiments are for the greater good, but when they walk on a thin line, they will inevitably trample on both sides. According to the School of Law at Northwestern University, people who “violate bodily integrity and autonomy are routinely punished,” and yet scientist will escape unethical situations will only a slap on the wrist (99:1). Uncovering facts of Henrietta’s immortal life, Skloot indirectly poses the argument of medical malpractice. The medical experiments conducted during the nineteen forties and fifties were very controversial.
She explained that natural things are generally bad like cancer and heart disease and that technology is a better replacement, such as chemotherapy. She made some very compelling and interesting ideas that for the most part made a lot of logical sense. One man did bring up a point that most of he arguments were degraded by her use of ad hominens. He told her that it was hard for him to take her seriously when most of her arguments involved berating environmentalists, calling them idiots and morons. She responded mostly by interrupting his questions to let him know that she has the right to be “pissed off” at the world’s current situation due to these idiots and morons.
response to EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH: THE BLOOD TRAIL OF PROGRESS Paul A. Ibbetson a writer for The Conservative Crusader, defends and also attempts to clarify the typical conservative stance on stem cells in his article “Embryonic Stem Cell Research: the Blood Trail of Progress”. Ibbetson fails to justify his point that non-embryonic stem cell research is viable while embryonic stem cell research is immoral due to a number of errors in his delivery. The foremost among these is the logical fallacy of appeal to consequences; Ibbetson makes a half-hearted attempt to compare Hitler’s policy on genocide akin to Obama’s position on stem cell research, yet never truly explains the explanation. Another logical fallacy presented towards the
Compiled from a variety of sources by Evynn Blaher, C.D. Hylton High School, Woodbridge, VA. POSSIBLE RESEARCH TOPICS Your research paper, and the resulting thesis statement, must be an ARGUABLE issue. Be prepared to present the actual findings of your research convincingly even if you discover that your findings differ from your personal opinions. Remember, research is objective and not a “soap box” for personal views. The following topics have been divided by subject: BIOETHICAL ISSUES Withholding the truth from dying patients Physician-assisted suicide Limits to confidentiality Involuntary commitment Organ donation Access to experimental drugs for dying patients CRIME AND CRIMINOLOGY Is criminal
Some, including Arthur L. Caplan, a bioethicist at the University of Minnesota, argue that the Nazi study can be used, but most be guided by two principles: the purpose of using the data must be of importance and the data must be presented with an obvious disclaimer of how the data was obtained. Others, such as Jay Katz of Yale University, dispute this claim. He argues that “the data should be condemned to oblivion and never used by science, although the descriptions of the experiments can be republished as a reminder of the Nazi horror.” However, over the course of debate it has become certain that this data does not hold the value some scientists place upon it. In fact, the data compiled at Dachau should serve solely as a reminder of the cruelest extent of human rights abuses that occurred during the Holocaust and should not serve any scientific purpose because the rights to the data belong to the victims, the data is not essential to advance scientific inquiry, the good that can be salvaged from it is marginal compared to the means of obtaining the data, and the use of the data in any scientific manner justifies the research performed by the
 The authoress reviews images of tuberculosis, cancer, schizophrenia and AIDS in literature, film, medicine, psychoanalysis, politics and sociology... She points out accusatory ton of such metaphors, which supposedly aims at developing will to fight with disease. But the truth is that it does not. It arouses fear and what is more it can be the reason of social exclusion. And if we have to be afraid of something we should be anxious about disease or virus, but not about people who are infected. For the most important thing is conscious life, rapport and mutual
