Karen Ann Quinlan was out with her friends on April 14, 1975. Near the end of the night at the party, she consumed large amounts of alcohol and the sedative Valium. This caused her to go into a coma. Karen stayed in the coma for 1 year, until her doctor told her family she was in a ‘vegetative state’, meaning she was brain dead. Her parents had wanted to end her suffering, so they asked for Karen to be taken off life support. The doctors refused them so the Quinlan family took the case to court. At first, the judge had refused to let this happen as the doctors opposed disconnecting the respirator. Stating that it violated the state’s homicide laws. A week later, the Quinlans took this case to the New Jersey Supreme Court, of whom ruled that it was unusual punishment. But ultimately, the Supreme Court, based upon the right to privacy, ruled that Karen was permitted to be taken off. But when she was taken off, she continued breathing. This could be from the cerebellum, which is the primitive brain and it controls involuntary functions such

According to Dr. Heide, “severely mentally ill offender suffers from irrational thinking and behavior” (CriminologyTV). Countess clearly was thinking irrationally after taking Paxil and that led to her behavior of mixing Paxil with alcoholic drinks and from there killed her mom in the bathroom. In my opinion, the best verdict for Countess would be second degree murder, because it was a killing done impulsively without premeditation. Countess also did not recall her killing towards her mom, due to the amount of Paxil that she took in addition to having alcoholic drinks

In this case, Professor Austin will exhibit distributive justice as he weighs out who benefits from Cindy’s cheating and burdens from Cindy’s cheating. According to Rawls’ Fairness Approach, the decision for Professor Austin to report Cindy addresses the consistency of treatment amongst everybody because Professor Austin reports his star player to the Dean showing no favoritism. Professor Austin’s decision will also address who benefits and who burdens by understanding that more people are burdened by Cindy’s cheating than benefiting from her cheating. Ethical frameworks like the Utilitarian Approach focuses on the maximum benefit for everyone, so this framework does not take into consideration the individuals who are burdened by Cindy’s

Then, he did something crazy. He sprinted up the rusty building stairs. He followed the cries to apartment number 7. He put his shaking hand on the doorknob. He turned it slowly, and peeked his head around the door. When Seymour looked inside, all he could do was stand there. His eyes grew as big as the sun.

Seymour was already having a brave sort of day, so he mustered up all the courage he had and asked: Are you
