26 Nov

Do you feel that the Lees should have the right to care for Lia as they wished, or do you think they should have been forced to comply with her doctors’ instructions?

    I think that the Lee’s should’ve complied a little more while staying true to their beliefs, and they should’ve trusted the doctors because they know best.

    I think that the Lee’s should have the right to care for Lia as they wished to a certain extent. But in the case where it is a life and death situation the doctors should have control to do whatever they need to do to save Lia’s life.

    The Lee’s have a right to care for Lia as they wished. I think that the Lee’s should’ve at least try to understand where the doctors are coming from. They should have gave in a little, and complied with the doctors more, while still staying true to themselves and their culture. Since both cultures have many differences it is hard to say whether or not one side has the “right” choice. The Lee’s should comply more to what the doctors believe, because it is better for the well-being of Lia, but the doctors should comply more to the Lee’s because it is their choice in the well-being of Lia and it is their cultural view-point as well. I believe that Lia’s condition should be dealt with, in a way that makes both cultures happy, while still helping Lia.

    I don’t think the Lee’s should have taken care of Lia as they wished because if they did, they would’nt want to give Lia her medicines or any other techonology they don’t know of. Also, I feel like since Lia is a minor and doesn’t know what she wants yet because she is still a little girl, she can’t decide for herself. She doesn’t know if her parents decisions are best for her. I think the doctors would have treated Lia was better because they have to by law give Lia the best treatment they can in order for her to survive.
