So, therefore, i do not think their decision would be supported by the relational quality of life standard unless they think they’re going against their religious beliefs, then i would see why they wouldn’t want the surgery.

I will upload two essays that i want you to respond to based on a case study from other classmates. i want two separate paragraphs, the first paragraph should be response to the first essay and the second paragraph should be response to the other essay. I will upload a rubric as well that should show what the response should contain. I will also upload the case study and link to powerpoint which they used. Also when reading the rubric, only pay attention to the follow up post criteria. ignore the other ones. link to powerpoint video below.

CASE study used is 5B
ESSAY 1
I do not think the parents decision against surgery is justified morally. When reading the case, they do not exhibit any specific reasoning as to why they wouldn’t want the surgery for their baby. So, therefore, I do not think their decision would be supported by the relational quality of life standard unless they think they’re going against their religious beliefs, then I would see why they wouldn’t want the surgery. Otherwise, I don’t think the decision is supported. The relational quality of life standard states, “when treatment can improve the critically ill newborn’s overall condition such that she or he can pursue life’s goals, then it is morally obligatory, because it provides a meaningful benefit to the newborn and is in her or his best interests” (Panicola, 2001, pg. 141). The parents are not giving the newborn a fighting chance to potentially give it a good life with a high success rate surgery. Ethics should get involved in this case immediately.
I do disagree with the parents decision, but would ask them to further elaborate their reasoning with an ethics committee member by my side so we could work with them as a team. It’s not morally or ethically right to try and convince the parents to change their mind, but perhaps we could get them to look at the surgery options from a different viewpoint. As the surgeon, I would try to more understand the parents viewpoint without making them feel pressured. At the end of the day, we cannot force anyone to do anything. With the ethics committee already involved, the opportunity to get other reinforcements such as other NICU surgeons could also help clarify the situation or bring in a different outlook for better options. “If treatment can enable the newborn to pursue goods at least at a minimal level without experiencing excessive burdens, then treatment generally should be considered proportionate and hence morally obligatory” (Panicola, 2001, pg. 143).
ESSAY 2
Relational quality of life standard “…maintains that the focus should be on the best interest of the newborn and these alone” (Panicola, 2011, pg. 141). By referring to this standard, it is evident that the parents’ decision is not morally justified. If the parents were making a choice for the newborn with human flourishing in mind and a quality life after treatment, they would decide to have the surgery completed. There must be other factors contributing into their decision to basically give up on the newborn when there are options for significant life. The relational quality standard does not agree with focusing on any other factors besides treatment and if that treatment will ultimately improve the infant’s survival. I also do not agree with the parents’ decision to change their minds after stating once that they agree for treatment if needed, even knowing the surgery frequently is successful.
Along with the surgeon, I would also be extremely confused and wondering what other factors the parents are considering. At this point, I would advise the surgeon to get help from other caregivers and ethical committees to fully explain the procedure and its’ benefits to the parents. To help back up the relational quality of life standard, the best interest standard aligns in the same manner of keeping the interest of the infants’ life at the base of decision. The best interest standard explains that treatment should be given unless death is imminent, treatment is medically contraindicated, or continued existence would be worse than death (Panicola, 2011, pg. 140). This case does not fall under any of those oppositions to the standard. So, in my opinion it is best for the infant to undergo the procedure with such high survival rates and elongated life.

The module 7 assignment will be based off of the oversights and mistakes of the ps 120 case.

After reading chapter Five ( FOUR SKILLS OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY COMPETENCE ) read the article titled: “No Pay, No Play! Poor kids banned from school carnival”. You will be writing an Action plan for the school titled PS 120. (The article is in module 7.)
Before beginning, read the case example on page 104, that involved a school with a large Hispanic population and an event that was mishandled and resulted with many children feeling left out, or invisible. This case example and Action plan will prove to be beneficial when you are working on Module seven’s assignment. The case on page 104, is an example only. It is not part of your assignment.
*Also, make sure you read the “Announcement” that augments this assignment.
The Module 7 assignment will be based off of the oversights and mistakes of the PS 120 case. Meaning you are learning from the mistakes made from the first PS 120 carnival. You will take what you have learned and will format an Action plan for the next school festivity.
Be very aware that there are two components that must not be overlooked moving forward. There is an emotional component (staff education), as well as a business component (funding), that must be addressed. If you do not address both components in this assignment deductions will occur. You are to use the format below. Based off of the two components, you will demonstrate how each will unfold in your plan of action. You will state what you plan to address in each section and then you will follow with a paragraph that explains the goal for the step.
The school PS 120 has a lot to learn in regard to hosting school activities and they need your help. You have read the article regarding the previous carnival, and you know that the structure of the 1st carnival was not well received and needs restructuring. In other words, you have been called in to “clean up the mess”. Someone needs to take charge and this someone is YOU!
There is going to be another carnival and you are in charge of orchestrating a plan of action that will lay-out steps to follow and goals to meet before the carnival begins. It is your job to develop an “Action” plan on a “Personal/Interpersonal” level, as well as an “Organizational level”. This means you are addressing two action plans. The Personal/Interpersonal level is directed towards the staff. The business level is directed towards funding.
You will be presenting this Action plan to the school board.
Be sharp and specific with each step.
You are to be creative with this assignment and develop your own plan. Your goal is to focus on topics (objective), and how and why it will be done (goals).
Again, be specific when addressing this assignment. The tasks’ before you involve learning from the failed event and developing proposals for each of the 8 steps that will improve the outcome of the next carnival.
Remember, in step 4, you will need to explain HOW you are planning to “measure” the progress. How will you know if you have achieved the outcome that you are seeking if you do not have a way to measure the progress? How will you know if it is working so far, or if you need to make changes?
You will format and address your Action in the following manner:
Action Plan
Personal and Interpersonal Level -(Staff/Faculty)
A). Address the Emotional component of this Action plan
State the Objective
State the goals for this step.
State the Action Steps –
What are the goals for this step?
State the Timetable –
What are the goals for this step?
State the Measures of Progress –
What are the goals for this step?
Organizational Level (Funding)
B). Address the Business component of this Action plan.
State the Objective
State the goals for this step.
State the Action Steps –
State the goals for this step.
State the Timetable –
State the goals for this step.
State the Measures of Progress –

ESSAY 1
Within the debate on abortion, it is easy for most to look at this situation as political. It is vital to remember that most cases, such as the one Stacey is in, have emotions and attachments involved. In Stacey’s case, it is valuable for her to hear from her doctors that the condition her fetus has at 15 weeks, will not harm her own body in any way. With this information and my ethical standpoint on allowing the baby to fight as long as possible, I would side with the nurses who want to give the fetus a chance at life however long that may be. My disagreement with the nonpersonal position backs up my statement. The nonpersonal position does not value the fetus as made in the image of God (Slosar, 2011, p. 108). As a Christian, I believe that God has made us all in his image and has our lives planned to glorify him in whatever way that looks. I believe that the fetus that has been growing within Stacey has the right to continue fighting for life.
In contradictory to the personal position supreme value of autonomy, the Roe v. Wade case decided that an unborn fetus is not a person so it will not be protected under the Fourteenth Amendment. Although in recent rulings this case has been overturned, there are still state laws that can decide for themselves. In the text from the Row v. Wade ruling, it states that during the second-trimester states are permitted to regulate and prohibit abortions while leaving exceptions for protecting women’s health (Slosar, 2011, p. 103). Since Stacey is in the second trimester and her health is not being compromised because of her fetus’s condition, an abortion should not be completed. It is hard to have an opinion on someone else’s life without being in their position, but by looking at the given information, that there is no harm to the mother, I believe the fetus should have a chance to live as long as possible. If I were in this position and talking to my husband, and we both believed that it is all in God’s hands, I would continue to help my fetus fight for life.
ESSAY 2
Pregnancy is often viewed as the miracle of bring another life into the world. After working in health care, I have been able to witness situations in which a child is born with circumstances not compatible with life as well as circumstances that don’t lead to a good quality of life. “What should we do when we have information regarding a fetal anomaly, but there is not therapeutic or curative intervention?” (Slosar et. al., 2011, pg. 112). This question remains for many individuals after diagnostic testing during a pregnancy. Ultimately, I believe it should be up to the parents discretion on this decision. When thinking about a fetus who would have no quality of life and have no life saving measures that could contribute to a normal and healthy living life, I think it is fair to have the discussion of abortion. A child being brought into the world, should be able to live a healthy and normal life as any other human being would. The fetus coming in to the world with the potential to enduring suffering is not fair. The short time the child would be here would not be enjoyable or of any quality of life.
Another important topic to remember is “The mother who carries a child to fully term is subject to the anxieties, to physical constraints, to pain that only she must bear” (Slosar et. al., 2011, pg. 112). Without a doubt, a mother must go through many emotions and physically and mentally in order to birth a child. In most cases, finding out that you are having a child is exciting, to then be crushed with the news that your baby will not live long can be devastating. The process of birthing a child and seeing the defects can be traumatic for the mother. Then having a baby possible hooked up to many tubes and wires can be scary as well. In this case, terminating the pregnancy early and giving the child a sense of dignity I think would be the best move. I can see both sides of the spectrum in giving the baby a chance at life however, I also believe that the baby should have some type of dignity while living its life. Speaking for the mother, emotionally, she would have a lot to go through. From the husbands standpoint, I think the best thing to do would be supporting the mothers decision regardless of personal emotions.

Thinking as a hobby (pg. 30 in your textbook)

B​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​efore endeavoring to write this paper, make sure you’ve read the following essays:
Thinking as a Hobby (pg. 30 in your textbook)
The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas (Links to an external site.)
After reading the aforementioned essays, read Chapter 4 (pg. 55), for it details how to write an Issue/Problem Paper. Make sure to read the models by Susan Hernandez (pg. 57-58) and Joey Tyler (pg. 58-59), but make sure to adhere to the organizational strategy detailed toward the bottom of this page (and demonstrated in the accompanying PDF).
For your first Issue/Problem Paper, this is the prompt:
In The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas, most of the people choose to remain. However, some people leave. Please classify those who leave as Grade One, Grade Two, or Grade Three Thinkers (based on William Golding’s Thinking as a Hobby.)
Please adhere to these definitions:
Grade-One Thinkers: offer solutions
Grade-Two Thinkers: detect contradictions
Grade-Three Thinkers: feel instead of think
Make sure to mind the following:
Proofread! Your I/P Paper is worth 100 points.
Make sure that the first sentence of your I/P Paper is your claim.
Diction tips for refuting the opposition can be found on pg. 156-157.
When writing, make sure each assertion (“point”) is coupled with an example. Hence, as noted on pg. 55, you’ll have your “claim,” then your first “point,” and then your first “example.” Following the “example,” you should have a sentence of “commentary.” (“Commentary” simply explains the relevance of your “example,” and it also links your “example” to your “point” and, most importantly, to your “claim.”) For clarification, simply note the examples on pgs. 57-58. Both Susan and Joey follow the “Point/Example/Commentary” format. (But make sure to adhere to the organizational strategy detailed toward the bottom of this page, and demonstrated in the accompanying PDF.)
Your typed I/P Paper should not exceed one page. Your point size should still be .12, and your composition should still be double-spaced. Also, your margins should meet MLA guidelines. Although your I/P Paper should not exceed one page, a second page will be stapled to it. This will be your Works Cited page. Of course, if you only cite one work, then it will be aptly titled: Work Cited.
Refuting the Opposition
Some of you may be new to refuting the opposition. To refute means “to disprove.” The opposition is the group that opposes your claim. In paragraph two of your Issue/Problem Paper, you must refute the opposition TWICE. In doing so, you must address the two classifications that were not selected. In other words, if you classified those who leave Omelas as Grade One Thinkers, then you must refute the opposition for Grade Two Thinkers and Grade Three Thinkers.
Mistersato411 does a fine job of explaining why we refute the opposition. He does so in his YouTube video, How to Write a Counterargument:
When you refute the opposition in your Issue/Problem Paper, do it like this:
Address the Opposition: Some people argue that . . . .
Identify with the Opposition: This is reasonable. In fact, according to . . . .
Refute the Opposition: However, . . . .
Real-World Refutation
In the real world, you’ve likely witnessed this process in a variety of contexts. Here are some examples:
1. Honda Salesman: So do you want to drive away with this car today?
Me: I do, but it’s a little bit expensive.
Honda Salesman: You’re not alone. A lot of people have that concern. $29,000 is a lot of money. I don’t have $29,000 right now, and most of the people I know don’t have $29,000 right now. But the good news is, you don’t need $29,000 today. You only need $198, and that sounds a lot better, doesn’t it?
Me: Hmmmm.
2. Dad: Okay, it’s your bed time.
Nine-year old Me: I don’t get it. You guys are always trying to make go to bed when I’m not tired, and then you wake me up when I am.
Dad: It’s my way or the highway. Go to bed now.
[NOTICE: He skipped the second step. He did not Identify with the Opposition. Here’s how it might look if he attempted to Identify with the Opposition.]
Dad: Okay, it’s your bed time.
Nine-year old Me: I don’t get it. You guys are always trying to make go to bed when I’m not tired, and then you wake me up when I am.
Dad: I get it. Believe it or not, there are thousands of kids your age having the same conversation with their parents right now. And I understand. I’d rather you stay up. It’d be fun. We could microwave some popcorn and watch some TV together. It’s been a long day, and it’d be fun to hang out with you. But here’s the thing: do you know when kids grow the most?
Nine-year old Me: No.
Dad: When they’re sleeping. Weird, right? Kids grow the most when they’re sleeping. I want you to grow as big and strong as you can. Don’t you?
Nine-year old Me: I don’t know. Yeah, I guess.
Dad: I know you don’t want to go to sleep right now, but you’ll be bigger and stronger because of it. So off to bed champ. We’ll break bread in the morning.
3. Job Interviewer: Over 200 people applied for this position, and most of them have more experience than you. So why should we offer you this position?
You: Yeah. You’re right. Hopefully I can interview with you again once I’ve gotten some experience.
[NOTICE: the Job Interviewer was simply inviting you to refute the opposition. In this case, the opposition consists of the 200 people who might have more experience than you. Don’t end the interview. Instead, refute the opposition by discussing the things you didn’t place on your resume that may count as experience. Or attempt to show why having little experience can be beneficial. Or concede that you may not have as much experience as the others, but you can offer more value in other arenas. Here’s how it might look if you would’ve stayed.]
Job Interviewer: Over 200 people applied for this position, and most of them have more experience than you. So why should we off​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​er you this position?
You: That’s fair. If I were in your shoes, I’d have the same question. After all, I just graduated from college, and aside from my five-month internship at XYZ, I do not have much industry experience. Indeed, the other applicants may have more experience than me. However, what they might not have is my drive and belief. If you were to contact any of my former employers, you’d find that I’m the sort who arrives early and stays late, not for pats on the back or accolades but simply because I believe in the work I do. I’m dedicated, and I’d bring that dedication to your organization. For four years now, I begin each day by reading about your company. And each day simply reinforces why I want to be the newest member of your team.
Job Interviewer: Hmmm. Interesting.
[When you refute the opposition in your Issue/Problem Paper, it will be more academic than the real-world examples. Still, refuting the opposition is a skill that you should be able to acquire in our class and employ in the real-world.]
[Examples of refuting the opposition in your Issue/Problem Paper can be found below.]

Let’s assume that you’ve read Thinking as a Hobby. And let’s assume that, for the sake of this example, the prompt has been changed to the following: Based on Thinking as a Hobby, please classify William Golding as a Grade One, Two, or Three Thinker. (This is an EXAMPLE, and while I’ve altered this example’s prompt a tad, it should still work as a nice model for the Issue/Problem Paper that you are writing.)
Paragraph One
Claim: Based on Thinking as a Hobby, William Golding is a Grade One Thinker.
Point: Golding offers solutions.
Example: For example, when attempting to explain how his hobby developed, Golding writes: ” . . . I now saw my hobby as an unsatisfactory thing if it went no further” (33).
Commentary: Here, Golding is likely referring to the solutions he employed in order to become a Grade One Thinker.
Commentary: These solutions include speaking with Professor Einstein (34), devising ” . . . a coherent system for living” (34), and rearranging the statuettes to, seemingly, suggest that the Thinker must deliberately face the unknown despite knowing that society’s nature is to attack.
Paragraph Two
Address the Opposition: Some argue that Golding is a Grade Two Thinker.
Identify with the Opposition: This is reasonable. In fact, he detects many contradictions. For instance, he states: ” . . . I felt here were two grade-one thinkers standing side by side; yet I doubt if my face conveyed more than a formless awe” (34). Golding detects a contradiction between his perception of himself and Einstein’s likely perception of Golding. This suggests that Golding is a Grade Two Thinker.
Refute the Opposition: However, even though Golding detects a contradiction, his face eventually conveys “more than a formless awe” when he speaks to Professor Einstein by saying, “Fisch. Ja. Ja” (34). This may seem minimal, but a Grade One Thinker offers solutions. Finding a way to move from nonverbal conveyance to verbal conveyance should constitute a solution, which suggests that Golding remains a Grade One Thinker.
Address the Opposition: Others maintain that Golding is a Grade Three Thinker.
Identify with the Opposition: This, too, is reasonable, for in the aforementioned example, Golding indicates that ” . . . [he] felt here were two grade-one thinkers . . . ” (34). Since Grade Three Thinkers feel instead of think, then Golding’s feeling suggests that he is a Grade Three Thinker.
Refute the Opposition: However, it is likely that each grade of thinking builds upon one another. In other words, ” . . . [he] felt . . . ” (34), ” . . . [he] doubted . . . ” (34), and he finally communicated by saying “Fisch. Ja. Ja” (34). He had to feel before he could doubt, and he had to doubt before he could solve. Golding seemed to rely on Grade Three Thinking and Grade Two Thinking to arrive at his likely classification: Grade One Thinker.
