In reality the girls who have been affected by Hitch due to his relationship advice, actually did fall in love and they may not have ever met their soul mate without Hitch.
“The descriptions provided by Anderson are often quite intentional. It seems almost silly to even question whether his character descriptions would be intentional, however, it is important to note that the details he gives are given for a reason, often symbolic,” ( GradeSaver).

Ernest Hemingway’s, “Hills Like White Elephants,” raises feminist critiques. Using characterization and dialog, he presents a discussion between a masculine figure that controls a weak, submissive woman that has lost her resolve, and the larger idea of the male voice dominating women’s in literature.

Before you dismiss the important of Planned Parenthood, please consider each and every service that they offer including STD screenings and treatment, contraception services, and access to affordable women’s health care. I also ask you to consider what our society would look like if we didn’t have a properly funded, public institution that offers these services.

Killing the Black Body, and the class discussions really made me see how privileged and ignorant I was before, it is always hard finding out you aren 't as great as you thought you were. I now have a better understanding and compassion for women who can and do chose to get abortions, and those that can 't and don 't. I will never again think I am better than somebody who had an unplanned pregnancy, because I know that there are women out there that are victims of the system and don 't have the reproductive freedom that I do, and I should spend my time helping
Summary While anti-abortion legislatures have been passing ‘Women’s Right to Know’ policies for over two decades, a more recent trend has been to add a mandatory viewing of an ultrasound to the state-mandated informed consent procedure. Whereas abortion advocates argue that these laws are unethical and may cause psychological harm to a woman seeking an abortion, the anti-abortion activists stand behind these policies saying that viewing an ultrasound promotes a bond between mother and child and helps the woman to make a more informed decision. Evidence demonstrates that ultrasound viewing does not deter a woman from having an abortion, but may illicit a range of emotional responses, including some negative feelings.
