As humans, we are given different rights that are meant to provide us with a chance at a good life. However, these rights can become compromised when it comes to conflicts between a pregnant woman and her fetus. The right of the fetus to live is seen as inferior to the right of the mother to have an abortion. Although each of the rights is different, it is not appropriate to say that one citizen’s rights are more superior than another citizen’s rights. Mary Anne Warren establishes a belief that a fetus’s right to live is overruled by an expecting mother’s right to an abortion because it is not a technically a true person until it is born.
These babies could be protected from harsh situations if provided an option to control birth. Near the end of the speech, it is implied that people who know they are not in the right place to support a child should not be put in that position. They should not be forced into nurturing a baby while struggling to provide for themselves. Birth is an amazing gift, but it becomes less of a blessing when the parents aren’t in control of when this gift is
..The exercise of her right to decide how many children she will have and when she shall have them will procure for her the time necessary to that developmental of other faculties than that of reproduction.” (Young, 277) Going back on the phrase voluntary motherhood, Sanger stresses the ideas of woman getting to choose what happens with their bodies. They should be allowed who they wish to have a child with, when and even how many children they wish to have. This is very important because during that time woman did not have much control even though it was their body they were looked down upon when it came to abortions or contraceptives. Although birth control has been defined as a violation of natural law, it still brought comfort to many women. This is why Sanger wanted to give so many women the opportunities to be educated on reproduction.
Level three is neonatal intensive care critically ill babies who need surgery or high tech treatment (Learn.org.). Some newborns need to be watched more closely than others but all will need to be cared for constantly until they are released to their family. The specialized field of neonatal nursing did not really develop until the 1960s advancements in care and technology improved treatment greatly. Low birth weight and premature births were the leading factors in infant’s deaths (“Overview: Neonatal nurses.”). These nurses play a very important role in health care for infants born with these different health
I believe a mother has their right to their own body. Because the mother’s, already existing, life is more important they should be able to terminate any pregnancy. For example, If a child is not apart of their plan or their life is at risk abortion should be an available option. One of the biggest reasons for legalizing abortion, I found intriguing about the Roe versus Wade law, is the case that If a child is unwanted they are more likely to develop physiological issues. Even if the parents decide to have the child and give it up, they could suffer in an unjust foster system and also become a delinquent.
In the ever-changing world of science, in vitro fertilization has taken fertility to another level. In “Test-Tube Babies: Solution or Problem?” Ruth Hubbard describes just how in vitro fertilization works and the many risks factors the procedure brings with it. Hubbard gives her audience statistical evidence of women with unsuccessful pregnancies then follows it with historical evidence about the first women to ever receive in vitro Louise Brown in July, 1978. Although one might conclude that Hubbard would support in vitro she makes a shocking statement “But as a woman, a feminist, and a biologist, I am opposed to using it and developing it further.” Using rhetorical appeals Hubbard attempts to convince her audience that we should not support
For thousands of years in all cultures, there was no question that every woman breast-feeds her own child, yet nowadays the feeding of babies has developed in to two different directions, moms who breastfeed and others who bottle feed. No question: breastfeeding is one of the most natural acts of all. But is breastfeeding still the best way to start a human life? This question is justified in regards to the medical/scientific progress that has been made when it comes to baby formula make-ups and the rapidly changing lifestyles of young women and families,
All through the book we learn that Cupcake has many abortions. The first time Cupcake found out she was pregnant she was very happy. It seemed like this pregnancy was going to make her change to be a better person. Having someone to help her with the baby and guide her through her pregnancy and help her raise her baby would have influenced her to do well. When she found out she was pregnant, Cup was happy that she was going to have someone to love her and someone she could love (Brown 86).

However, they’re giving the unborn fetus to research facilities. Facilities that research things like stem cells. Also only one percent of all the Planned Parenthood’s do this. Patients often are the deciders in whether or not they should donate the fetus too. They do receive funds but they have to pay for
