Write an analysis of the issue using F.I.D.O. format on[shortposting]
Abortion- Daigle v. Tremblay (1989), R. v. Morgentaler (1988)
FIDO stands for the following:
F = Facts
•What are the facts? (i.e. the undisputed details of the case)
I = Issues
•What is the dispute?
•What is being argued?
•What are the questions that need to be answered?
•What legal concepts are involved in these issues?
•Are there larger issues at stake?
D = Decision
•What did the court decide?
•What would you decide?
•If your decision is different from that of the court, explain your reasoning.
O = Opinions
•When thinking about this case, what opinions do you have? (of the case, the issue(s), the court’s decision, the significance of the case)
•How could opinions or perspectives on this case vary? (Think about how the various philosophies of law from Activity #8 could apply.)
A FIDO analysis should be an original, thoughtful, well-written overview, and an analysis of the case. It should demonstrate your understanding of the case, as well as your application of legal concepts, theories, and terminology. If you choose at any time to use material from additional resources to support ideas in your analysis, you should properly cite your sources using the accepted course format.
Freedom is the right to be wrong, not the right to do wrong.
