Many studies prove this claim that abortions are detrimental. After women have an abortion, they can be diagnosed with depression. Multiple studies have proven that women post-abortion are likely to have depression also with other mental issues. Many women have participated in studies that show more women will experience regret, depression, and anxiety. Another piece of evidence to support my claim is “Research published in The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry in January has shown that even women without past mental health problems are at risk of psychological ill-effects after abortion”(McDonagh).
Ethnographic research is a type of qualitative research that studies cultures. The culture under study was low-income English and Spanish speaking women, who had an abnormal screening test or diagnosis of cervical cancer. Sampling Plan The study had 78 participants who were selected by purposive sampling. The process of sampling required women who were English and Spanish- speaking, who were receiving follow-up care after they had an abnormal screening test or a diagnosis of cervical cancer. Inclusive criteria included low-income, uninsured or underinsured ethnic minority women.
Teens between the ages fifteen and nineteen are either in their first year of college or are in high school. When considering the situation in which most teens might be in when they find out they are pregnant, it is clear that these young women are in tough situations. Many teens who find out they are pregnant are less likely to finish high school and or go onto college. “Teen parents face chronic unemployment and are less likely to complete high school than those who delay childbearing” (Anderson, Taylor, Logio, 2015:p.299). It is interesting to analyze then the data collected concerning both teen births and the population per state with a college degree.
According to UNFPA (The United Nations Population Fund) “A women’s chance of dying or becoming disabled during pregnancy and child birth is closely connected to her social and economic status, the norms and values for her culture and the geographic remoteness of her home”. It has also been found that poor and marginalized women are at the higher risk of maternal death as compared to aristocrate women. Hypertension, diabetes, respiratory problems, obesity and infections are some common health problems that occur during pregnancy or at the time of delivery. Maintaining Oral health /oral hygiene is also essential during pregnancy .Its proper care give benefit to both mother and foetus as well. However, there is a common misconception that it is not safe to obtain dental services while pregnancy that is a myth.
To teen moms, social prejudice over them may be something they want to avoid. It is a harsh barrier that they face when they get pregnant. Teen moms speak out that it’s hard to face social prejudices. Some exclaim that social blames and prejudices against them are inappropriate. They say that they can still do their works well.
One critical factor that has enormous influence on child development is the treat of stereotype, especially racial stereotype. Stereotype according to Berger’s (2010 p. 398.) is” the fear that someone else will judge one’s appearance or behavior negatively and thereby confirm the person’s prejudiced attitude”. There is euphoria of constant worry and anxiety especially among the young adolescent that someone will judge them to be ugly, overweight, incompetent and stupid based on race, gender, cultural background or religious affiliation.
The most common risk factors and protective factors can be divided into six areas: social or behavior problems, academic problems, child maltreatment, physical injuries, drug use, and physical health problems (sexuality, pregnancy, etc.). They can also be split into different categories according to the level of influence: individual and family are the first level, peer and school or work are in the second level and the third level includes social structures and others. A risk factor can be seen as the bad influence of the social environment on an individual and they are associated with increased risk of irregularities, disorders, diseases or premature death. Some risks are correlates, meaning they coexist with the abnormal behaviour, disorder or disease, others are called predicates, which mean that the influence preceded the occurrence of the problems. Based on knowledge of risk factors, unwanted phenomena, such as problem behaviours of young people, can be predicted, but risk factors are not causal in the strict sense of the word.
Early motherhood denies them opportunities. According to Sylvester Kathleen, the social costs for offspring of teen mothers also are apparent (Sylvester 2). Compared to those living in two-parent families, children in single-parent households are bad in health, education, and emotional and behavioral adjustments. Later on, if they continue to live with single parents, they become more likely to dropout of school, become heads of single-parent families themselves, and experience a lower socioeconomic status as adults. If the teen pregnancy programs were effective birth rates by teens should be lower.
One of the biggest issues women face ,or children to be specific, is child marriage, or arranged marriage . Barbaric beliefs drive families to get rid of their young girls, to give them away to men double their age, simply because the father believes that the daughter is a burden to the family. This is a human right’s violation and manifestation of gender inequality. Over 700 million women alive today were married as children, 1 in 3 child brides were married under 15. This is mostly common in developing countries, like Niger, Pakistan and India.
Teenage mothers are more likely to become drop-outs living in poverty. Sex education programs are an important factor in our younger generation’s lives. Without some sort of program who knows what the pregnancy and STD rates will look like. According to the author, Stokely Anne,” more than 15 million Americans are infected with a sexually transmitted disease each year, and
