Essay 2 – research
It has taken me a while to decide what would be the most appropriate example in this particular assignment. I have looked through the internet and narrowed the theme down to two:
the advert Mary Stopes has published via television last year, offering abortion:
and the controversial issue of euthanasia, looking through an interesting evidence of Dr. Kevorkian’s famous euthanasia trial:
I have decided that euthanasia may be more suitable as it is widely debated and transgression is clearly there from Dr. Kevorkian. As well as looking through the video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCIgUM0mkQs
I have also used an example http://www.carenotkilling.org.uk website, as their debates throughout are very organised and I believe they have many followers who fight against euthanasia legalisation in the UK. Finally, thanks to google.com I have found another interesting article about euthanasia propaganda used in media, accessible here:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1377412/Dr-Philip-Nitschke-gives-euthanasia-workshop-video-14-year-olds.html I have already read about this controversial video, unfortunately I have been unable to find the whole film, but the debates surrounding it I have also considered as very interesting.
I have also looked through other article about this video, like http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/uk-marketing-assisted-suicide-educational-videos-for-14-year-olds to make sure that there are not big differences in what public really thinks of it.
