The Ethical Dilemma Involving Jesse Gelsinger Kaplan University The ethical dilemma involving Jesse Gelsinger “An ethical dilemma is a situation in which an individual is compelled to choose between two actions that will affect the welfare of a sentient being, and both actions are reasonably justified as being good, neither action is readily justified as being good, or the goodness of the actions is uncertain” (Butts & Rich, 2008, p. 50). This type of dilemma can be painful and difficult to resolve because of the aspects and people involved. This paper will critique the ethical dilemma surrounding the unfortunate death of Jesse Gelsinger, its background, positive and negative aspects of the dilemma and stakeholders involved. This paper will also evaluate an ethical decision making model chosen to help formulate the rational of the outcome of this dilemma. Background Jesse Gelsinger was a victim that died after participating in a clinical trial for gene therapy.
Questionnaires Examine the reasons why some sociologists choose not to use questionnaires when conducting research. (20 minutes) Questionnaires are criticised for being invalid, superficial and limited research method. Their greatest flaw is that they fail to produce a fully valid picture of real dynamics of life. They merely offer a set of questions usually close-ended and aim to quantify these for ease of analysis. Questionnaires are valued by positivists for allowing to establish cause and effect relationships while interpretivist see them as the least valuable method of research.
Psychologist Diana Baumrind considered the experiment "harmful because it may cause permanent psychological damage and cause people to be less trusting in the future. " Australian psychologist Gina Perry examined Milgram's methodology, using original data from the Yale archives in her 2013 book Behind the Shock Machine: The Untold Story of the Notorious Milgram Psychology Experiments. Perry claims that Milgram's experiments and conclusions are flawed because he intentionally downplayed or ignored critical data that failed to support his thesis.

Have you seen the commercials where they try to sell you all of those harmful things? Well, children are also exposed to those stuff too. 'Managing screen time and screen dependency' Dr Aric Sigman argues that “ whether it's Facebook, the internet or computer games, screen time is no longer merely about a cultural issue about how children spend their leisure time, nor is it confined over the educational value or inappropriate content-it's a medical issue”A survey of 1,000 mothers of children at the age of 2 to 12 found that 85 of their mothers said that they give their children their technology to keep their kids occupied while they go on with their activities. When children spend around 17 hours a week in front of a screen they don't get out side and play with their neighborhood kids and interact with them or to just have fun and exercise. When children have too much dopamine they keep searching for more and more.
This particular study shows that many Americans who once depended on the support of friends and family now suffer through traumatic experiences alone (S.Vedantam, 2006). This research was compiled from a face to face survey of nearly 1,500 Americans. It was paid for by the National Science Foundation. When respondents were not clear on their answers they were pressed to clarify the meaning of their answers making the survey answers meaningful. Robert D. Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard and the author of "Bowling Alone," a book about increasing social isolation in the United States, said the new study supports what he has been saying for years to skeptical audiences in the academy.
Anything is possible in today’s day and age. As a mother who homeschools her children thru public online schools I would have to say that I am sure that this issue of standardized tests is more than likely the case today. When President Bush Sr. signed the No Child Left Behind Act in the early 2000’s it seems to me that this act has promoted the behavior as is being discussed on this board to be able to rise again; or to continue on in a sense as this act brought about school reform in respects to how the teachers started teaching then. Teaching to the standardized tests rather than teaching to learn has become the norm now. I feel this is nothing short of spoon feeding and memorization but retention of learning the material it would seem to
If it is for selfish, self-serving motives, or to serve in an undeserved, destructive way for others, it is not justified. In the political arena and on a governmental level there is no justification to tell a white lie. When lies are told to a nation the government undermines the society. The lies that are being told by the government can’t constitute as white lies because they are dealing with matters of great magnitude. In the reading “Lies” by John Crawford we read the story of a soldier who is back to war after a leave and he is not only lying to other solders but he is lying to himself.

We are often quoted as not understanding what our young ones are going through. In my opinion, our children lose out if not properly reared. The first website I found is titled “Raising Boys Today” and the web address is http://www.preteenagerstoday.com/resources/articles/boys.htm. The author to this site is Jennifer Nelson, and her purpose is to educate parents on raising teenage boys. I found it easy to read for the article is in every day terms that allows easy association between my son and the article.
