11, 12 How¬ever, Post-natal depression (PND) is diagnosed in only 50% of the women with prominent symptoms during first year after delivery. On the contrary, untreated PND can cause chronic depression and interferes in mother child bonding and even to the extent of suicide as well as infanticide in rare cases.13 However, it is important to distinguish PND from the “baby blues” that occurs be¬tween three and 10 days after giving birth; and “Post¬natal psychosis” which affects one in 500 women in the first week or so after child birth.4 The present study was conducted with an objective to assess the burden of postpartum depression in a group of Indian women attending a tertiary care teaching hospital using EPDS
Three percent of Planned Parenthood’s patient care is dedicated to abortions. However when most people think of Planned Parenthood abortion is the first thing to come to mind. People fail to realize that 35 percent of Planned Parenthoods patient care is dedicated to contraception, and 35 percent is dedicated to treatment of sexually transmitted disease (STD) treatments. Not to mention 16 percent of their care is put towards to cancer screening and treatment. People have come to the conclusion that Planned Parenthood needs to be defunded because they provide abortions, and also because of their involvement in selling fetuses to stem cell research.

The dictionary definition for abortion is ‘the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy’, and people usually very absolutist about their stances regarding this topic. The two sides of the argument are those who are pro-choice or pro-life. The pro-choice side argue that it is the free will of the parent/s to decide on how to handle the pregnancy as unplanned pregnancies could mean a detrimental life for both the parent/s and the baby as the parent/s may not have the resources to support and take care of the baby, or are not ready for such big change and responsibility.

Not only that, but firearm suicide is one of the most common ways of suicide across the United States. Even more, data from 2012 showed that 64% of gun deaths were suicides, different than the 2006 data that showed the decrease (57%). However, gun control is not able to decrease firearm suicide. If gun control were to be stricter, there still wouldn't be any control over a persons decisions, unless firearms would be completly out of reach for citizens.

"In 2014, an estimated 926,240 abortions took place in the United States alone", (Guttmacher), which have nearly doubled into 2018.
