Week 9 Ethics Assignment.doc - The following seven people...

The following seven people will receive the vaccine. I based this selection on how they contracted the disease, and what their life entailed. My primary basis was not driven by race, gender, or color. Those factors are irrelevant in my thought process. My main decision on whether they would or would not receive the vaccine was 1. What was the probability they would repeat the process that caused them to become infected (some this did not apply to) 2. What was their actual life expectancy? 1. A 15-year-old African American female was exposed to the virus through her 14- year-old boyfriend. She comes from a two-parent, middle-class family, attends junior high school and is the fifth of nine children. 2. A 52-year-old White business executive and father of four, recently released from federal penitentiary where he served two years for insider trading on the bond market, contracted the virus during a minor medical procedure in the prison hospital. Currently he is doing 1,000 hours of community service teaching job skills and money management to inner-city youths. 3. A 35-year-old Hispanic mother of one child, 5 years of age, was exposed to the virus during an emergency blood transfusion. She has been happily married to her second husband for 3 years (her first husband, the girl’s father, left the community and maintains no contact with either of them).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
