Justice and Fairness
James cannot dictate for his parents concerning the steps to take about his medical condition because he is a child living under his parents, and his parents have full medical decisions on him. From my own point of view, there was no justice utilized because his parents denied him the necessary and immediate medical treatments and decided to take him to a faith healing services which couldn’t yield a positive result.
James’s twin brother, Samuel is also a child living under his parents; definitely he is in the same shoe with his brother because he cannot make any medical decision on his own. I believe there won’t be justice and it would not be fair if Samuel grows up without his twin brother, and later discover he could have saved his life.
From my own point of view, the parents do not use justice in making their decisions concerning the doctor’s recommendations instead seeking for miracle, and putting James’s life at risk in that process. They are conflicted because they want to use beneficence and do what is best for both of their children while still relying on their faith in God to heal but are unsure of the right decision to make, and the outcome of their faith in God.
