Medea Guilty as Charged Men of Corinth I am here today to confirm who is solely responsible for the death of four innocent victims Medea She mischievously murdered the king and his daughter then proceeded to brutally violate the little bodies of her own children Some of you may argue that outside factors coerced her to act irrationally She wants you to believe that pain and suffering caused by Jasons disloyalty drove her mad enough to act out so rashly However her selfishness compelled her to plot and carry out these horrible deeds Jason and others only tried to help her but she denied their generosity Those of you who blame Jason for provoking Medeas eccentric behavior must realize he is another victim Jason has acted righteously and did not contribute to the tragic deaths we speak of today He has always tried to help Medea Soon after they met he relieved her of a wretched barbarian life and introduced her to our great Greek land teaching her how to live by law instead of the sweet will of force line 538 When he arrived in Corinth he further extended his generosity An opportunity arose to preserve Medea and breed a royal progeny to be brothers to his children by marrying the daughter of our great king Creon 595-7 Medea refused to accept all that Jason offered and labeled him disloyal for seeking another wife However our great society allows men to pursue other relationships when they grow tired of their current companion Therefore Jason did not act beyond his given rights He actually showed Medea additional loyalty when he went out of his way to ensure her well-being by calling on the gods to witness that he wished to help her and the children in every way 619-20 Medea responded selfishly Her heart on fire with passionate love for Jason 8 morphed into a burning rage of jealousy She did not return Jasons
