Mr. Bartling remained on the ventilator until the time of his death on November 6, 1984. He had several medical illnesses and did not want the ventilator despite knowing that it being removed would speed his death. He repeatedly asked for it to be removed and when refused, he tried to remove it himself. He was then restrained to prevent him from removing it. I believe the hospital had no right to force him to have the ventilator.
The thing that Hope was protecting Andy from was the voices in her head. She would hear the voices telling her that someone were going to take him or hurt him in some way. Hope had many problems because she did not have the parenting skills that she needed to take care of Andy. Hope needed people in her life to help her care for Andy and to tell her what she was doing right and what she was doing wrong. Social services should have removed Andy from her care because she could not care for him.
Before the abuse, Mother would’ve done anything for her family. When the abuse started, mother thought of Dave as nothing. She treated Dave like an “It”. Dave’s relationship with his father was also weird. I don’t understand how father didn’t try to protect his son no matter what could’ve happened.
Michael Schiavo stated that his wife would not have wanted to go on in a persistent vegetative state, yet he waited a long time to make that claim; thus, he could be said to have ignored his wife's wishes and violated her autonomy for many years.

It not only changes our view on Addie, but our view on the novel as a whole. Addie's voice is imparative to the reader's outlook and while we can sense it through the voices of others, her chapter best sums up her mind. So, what if Addie's chapter did not exsist? For one, we would never have comprehended her mind and the way it twists around things like how she feels about her children and husband. We would have all thought of her as still the same loving mother who watches her son, Cash, methodically build her coffin not because she is ready and wanting soon to be in it, but because he is her son and she loves to see him work.
She was confronted with a terminally ill father who at some point in his illness, believed in living life to the very end but eventually, due to the extent of his pain and suffering decided that he would rather die now rather than succumb to the illness itself.

It make you think what could you have possibly done in that situation.
The way he didn’t give up when he did not have to positive encouragement from his community is another reason why this piece stood out to me. It told me that even though that everyone will not be on the same page as you but you should not give up because you are making it count to not only you but someone else that may look up to you. Like when he goes to tell wife Michelle that he wants to quit she tells him that this project will be the most important thing they will ever do. She says that she understands that it will be hard and there will be a lot of sacrifices but she is willing to find out together.

Knowing that he could have been less obstinate and changed his assessment of power would have prevented Creon's son and wife from dying the way they did. Although Antigone was also persistent in not changing her own viewpoints, this worked in her favor because she was stubborn for a better reason than Creon. She stood up for her family because she knew it was the right thing to do. Creon did not show that he cared about anything but his own appearance for the fear that he will be observed as weak, until it was too late.
