The case of Joy Evens is case that is very interesting so I look up the legal law on peoples with a learning disability and with an IQ of less than seventy the ADA (Americans with Disabilities act) and the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) have worked together to make law regarding people with IQ’s less than 70, this has its limitations, however if a person is disabled, but can take care of them selves and has knowledge of basic math and reading skill they are able to make some decisions regarding their own life, like where to work, who to marry and where they want to live, the medical decisions are a little complex sometimes so the medical decisions should be left up to a guardian. If I was going to make a decision on the Joy Evens case I would give her the option if she wants to get married, she can, If she wants to go to work, she can, If she want to lives somewhere else other than home with her mother, she would have to prove she can afford it, but the medical decisions ould be left up to her brother not the mother. Joy’s mother is not a bad person it appears she just scared for her daughter and wants her to be at home with her, it might appear that the mother is a control freak but I think Natalie is just scared Joy would get hurt or she has no idea want she is doing, people with Down’s syndrome don’t live very long, so while she is able to do certain thing I believe we should let them.
