    Double Effect Essay

    • 1289 Words
    • 5 Pages

    There arise two problems when discussing the doctrine of double effect, the first being the close connection theory, and the second being choice description relativity. First, we’d discuss the choice description relativity. The idea behind choice description relativity is that you can explain the harm away to make it foreseen and unintended. In both CC and HC, the doctor intends to have the fetus and mother survive, and if given the chance to save both, it is expected they would. By stating this fact, the doctrine fails to justify or vilify the actions of the doctor as both actions are bad and unfavorable. Also, in CC, it is not the killing of the mother or fetus that is intended, but a complication that requires the removal of the fetus. At first glance, it would be hard to apply this logic to the case of the terror bomber and strategic bomber. The terror bomber seems to need the deaths of the innocent civilians to lower the moral of the opposing faction. However, one can claim that it is not the loss of life that demoralizes the enemy, but he instead needs the citizens as good as dead. This means that if they were somehow resurrected after the war, it would not change how the bomber feels. The choice description relativity even holds up in the cases of DR and GP. In DR, the doctors want to save everyone they can, and with the limited resources, can’t use most of their resources on a small group of patients when they could use the same resources and save three times that…

    Midwife History

    • 877 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Medicine has taken many turns throughout history from humoral theory, bloodletting and herbal remedies, to modern science where machines and drugs do more than ever before. However, one can say the biggest difference to occur throughout its history is that of the decline of Social Medicine, where house calls were required and neighbors were part of the remedy. This is nowhere more apparent than between 1785 and 1812 in American history when a journal was left behind from Martha Ballard, a…

    Medicine fascinated me even when I was a child. I remember being about eight years old when my pediatrician asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. Without hesitation, I told him I wanted to be a doctor. I view medicine as discovery, the chance to learn the science surrounding the human body and develop the skills that will allow me to heal others. As I entered college, I pursued experiences that exposed me to the world of medicine, becoming more involved within my community and university.…

I decided to turn to internal medicine next since it is a similar field and environment. I shadowed both a physician and his nurse. I observed the physician and nurse, took notes, and participated in patient care, which was…
