Everyday millions of Americans debate if Abortion should be legal or illegal. In my opinion, I believe that this action is murder. Statistics show that the number of Abortions that happen every year since 2013 is 664,435 (“Reproductive”). Without miscarriages around 16.7% of pregnancies go through abortion. This rate went down 1.9% since 2010.
All three cases presented provide clear violation of due process rights under the fourteenth amendment. These landmark cases display a breech in our law enforcement and judicial systems code of ethics. Due process rights are bound by the constitution from the sixth and fourteenth amendment to uphold mandatory rights as citizens of the United States. In earlier years in history there were many cases presented that established the laws and ethics within our justice system. Brady v. Maryland, Goglio v. United States, and United States v. Agurs were cases that sought in making a difference in how due process rights are distributed to the citizens of the United States.
In October 2003 the Commission for Health Improvement (CHI 2004), in synchronicity with the National Health Service (NHS) conducted one of the largest workforce surveys. The results suggested that 37% had experienced harassment, bullying or intimidation at work in the previous year. This is an extremely high and worrying amount of employees in the NHS who are exposed to bullying behaviour. An alarming number of staff has witnessed bullying occurring to other colleagues in the workplace(Quine, 1999). In 2000, the Royal College of Nursing compiled a quantitative questionnaire survey of 6000 RCN members in the UK, excluding student nurses, focusing specifically at their well being and working environment in the health sector.

Many Vietnamese people were affected as well. According to Vietnamese officials nearly 400,000 people were killed or maimed by the dioxins. They also claim that half a million children have been born with birth defects and two million people got cancer or other illnesses because of the dioxin. Not to mention the thousands of square miles of damaged terrain. Fred Wilcox says that America will not compensate Vietnam for the damages because they would be admitting to committing war crimes during the Vietnam War which would open the doors to many lawsuits and a loss of billions of dollars (Legacy of Agent Orange in
Since then, the conflict has only intensified and spread. Roughly one-third of the Afghan population is displaced. To add to that, Afghanistan’s child mortality rates are one of the worst in the world, with children under five dying at a rate of 191 for every 1000 live births (United Nations 2007). The impact of trauma during war conflict is damaging to children’s mental health. Rebel groups began attacks on the Afghan government in
Worldwide, infectious diseases such as waterborne diseases are the number one killer of children under five years old and more people die from unsafe water annually than from all forms of violence, including war. (WHO 2002) Water-borne diseases are any illness caused by drinking water contaminated with human or animal faeces, which contain pathogenic microorganisms. (Lenntech) Contaminated water in developing countries is becoming worse and worse as time passes. It is common for women and girls have to walk several kilometers every day to fetch water for their families. Once filled, water jugs can weigh as much as 20 kg (44 lbs).
The most recent data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , that for every 1,000 births, 4.8 white infants die in the first year of their life. For black babies, that number is 11.7,! Scientists and doctors have spent decades trying to understand what makes African-American women so vulnerable to losing their babies. Now you probably wonder what this has to do with respect? Well it is actually a growing consensus between scientists, that racial discrimination experienced by black mothers during their lifetime, makes them less likely to carry their babies to full
Over 1.4 million people worldwide suffer from hospital acquired infections. Studies show that at least 50% of medical equipment in developing countries is unusable or only partly usable due to lack of knowledge on how to use. As a result, substandard diagnosis or treatment is meted out to patients and may result in serious injury or death. Every year, unsafe injections cause 1.3 million deaths, primarily due to transmission of blood-borne pathogens such as hepatitis B, C virus and HIV. Problems associated with surgical safety in developed countries account for half adverse events that result in death or disability.
A strategy of attrition, especially on the Western Front, cost the lives of a huge number of soldiers. No official organizations kept careful and exact numbers of non military personnel looses amid the war years, however, scholars propose that upwards of thirteen million civilians died as a result of the war. The war removed or dislodged a huge number of people from their homes in Europe and Asia. Property and industry losses were cataclysmic, particularly in France, Belgium, Poland, and Serbia, where war had it 's most impact. In January 1918, approximately ten months before the end of World War I, US President Woodrow Wilson had composed a list of proposed war points which he called the "Fourteen Points."
