Original Post: “After reading the case, assume
you are a lawyer, your client, a medical doctor has been approached
by the parents of a mentally retarded female child to medically sterilize
the child. She comes to you for advice. What would you advise the
doctor to do?
1. the inherent powers of the court
2. rights of the child
3. obligations and wishes of the parents
4. other issues discussed by the court
You, as a lawyer must be objective and NOT insert your personal beliefs in the answer. Use the IRAC analytical format to respond to each separate issue you find (there are more issues than listed)”
CASE Assigned to Analyze:
You may do additional internet research, the search terms “Pillow Angel” and ” Washington” will be helpful.
Response Posts:Respond to another student that gives advice different from yours. List why you think yours is correct or list how you might modify your response based on their post.
Respond to the posts of at least 2 other students.
It is preferred if you prepare your response in Word and upload the file. Use spell and grammar check and have Word check the document for readability before uploading (be advised that Word will not indicate an error if you use a word that is an anagram (“trail” instead of “trial”) or a homophone see, http://users.tinyonline.co.uk/gswithenbank/homophon.htm#T). Please include the readability score with your submission.
To insure that the settings in Word will give you the readability statistics:
Go to “Word Options”–“Proofing”–“when correcting spelling and grammar in Word” (make sure all boxes are checked, especially “show readability statistics”) writing style should be “grammar and style”– finally in “settings” check all boxes.
