Per Reporter: Christine and the baby tested positive for benzodiazepines and marijuana. The meconium test is pending. There were no birth defects; however, the nurse (unknown) mentioned that the baby is experiencing withdrawals (trimmers). Christine takes Subutex (methadone), which are prescribed.
Gharib, Farshadmoghadam, Hosseini, and Yaghmaie (2014) reported on another child, an autistic boy, six years in age, who was brought to an emergency room with methadone intoxication. Unsafe exposure of children to methadone by illicit or even legal but not well-supervised users is a common problem that exists outside of the pre and postnatal exposure Evan experienced. The boy survived, but not without the truth coming out. His parents had been keeping liquid methadone in an old cough syrup bottle and mistakenly gave it to the boy to treat cold symptoms. Because of his autism, this situation could have been much more serious.
Linda Lowen writes about both sides of the abstinence education debate in her article “10 Arguments for Abstinence - Pros and Cons of the Abstinence Debate.” Ms. Lowen has discussed each side thoroughly before moving from one topic to the next and presents herself as unbiased for most of her article. She briefly states her stance about contraceptive after discussing the data for a logical solution. Throughout her paper she uses logic and statistics as a baseline for the issues while building upon them with other rhetorical strategies for an unbiased and compromisable approach to sexual education.
Goal 1: Justice will improve his interpersonal functioning and work toward abstinence. • Justice was observed playing the video game when the QP arrived for the session. • Justice reported he smokes “6 or 7 cigarettes per day.” • Justice listened as the QP shared research indicates the ages between 12–25 is a critical time of brain development; therefore, it is essential to protect it from alcohol and drugs during his crucial writing period because important connections are being made that link brain areas together, helping us become smarter and make better decisions. • Justice viewed his drug screening results since he has started treatment and observed where he has been decreasing his marijuana use each week.
Professor Ross Government 2306 8 February 2015 Is Abstinence-only education the correct approach for Texas? Owning one of the highest rates of teen pregnancies in the Union, Texas has an abstinence only approach in sexual education to try to reduce pregnancies? In addition to this, Texas ranks first as being the top spender in sexual education, but can’t get solidified results out of its spending. Texas doesn’t teach anything about contraception, how the Texas Department of State Health Services has said that the mission of the program is to delay sexual actions among teenagers until they are old enough, and the use of abstinence only education to protect children from explicit content only to find out in their own way leads to curiosity
It then poses a risk that the alcohol passed through the cord may cause complications for a developing baby throughout pregnancy. As a result, the effects of this can cause various implications which may possibly include physical deficiencies, behavioral and learning issues as well as defects and abnormality to major organs. It is common for a person with FAS to display a mixture of problems (CDC, 2015). The purpose of this essay is to explore the impacts and issues around the development disorder Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS).
In order to assure that the health needs of incarcerated pregnant women are met by prison and jail administrations it is important for them to know the profile of these women before they enter the facility. These prisons should have resources, staff, and information ready for these special groups of women. Since these women represent a small portion of the facility, it may be difficult to provide special healthcare needs. However, these women should not be treated as if they were a standard inmate when in fact they are not. Courts in certain states claim that pregnancy does not constitute as a serious medical need, basically meaning that being pregnant is not an illness or disability (UCLA Women Law Journal, 2010).
Christianity runs deeply throughout the veins of America’s oldest traditions, whether Americans themselves realize it or not. Christianity can be seen in courtship and the wedding ceremony, but one of the more obscure traditions that Christianity had a say in is childbirth. It was said long ago, menstruation, pregnancy and the pain of childbirth are the punishment for Eve’s Original Sin. Modernly, this explanation is not so much as established as it was before. Now, pregnancy is looked upon as a beautiful and magical thing.
The government spends over $170 million each year in subsidies and federally funds for abstinence only sex education programs across the nation (Beh and Diamond). There are three main groups that contribute financially to abstinence programs in America (CITE THIS). The first being the Adolescent Family Life Act (AFLA) of 1981, which was founded in opposition to the Title X Family Planning Program which provides contraception for low income families. The AFLA is the smallest monetary contributor, but is attributed with providing the ground work for abstinence programs at a federal level. Title V came about in 1996 as a stricter version of AFLA.
Pregnancy Addiction (PA): The addiction to pregnancy is a real disorder, which occurs when a woman becomes obsessed with being pregnant repeatedly because these women love the way they feel and the attention they get during the pregnancy. These PA women report that the release of the oxytocin hormone during pregnancy is euphoric during intercourse, any touch on the pregnant, at childbirth and during lactation. They enjoy the attention received while pregnant which places her in the limelight of her friends, family and strangers. After the birth of the newborn who is now the star sensation, mother takes a back burner, which may leave her with feelings of despair and insecurity. Abandonment may be the emotion within this new mother, because
In a study done by the American Academy of Pediatrics, infants who were given milk contaminated with heroin were irritable, restless, not feeding well, and vomiting. Those who were given breastmilk with phencyclidine, also known as PCP, suffered powerful hallucinations. If an infant is given breastmilk with cocaine, they end up suffering from cocaine intoxication, with symptoms of irritability, vomiting, and diarrhea. All of these effects that result from consuming breastmilk with traces of illegal drugs can be both physically and mentally damaging, and even fatal to the infant (American). Robert Mathias, a writer for The National Institute on Drug Abuse stated that more than five percent of pregnant women in the U.S. used illegal drugs while pregnant in 1992.
Grace Lazar Professor Jeanne Anderson English 102-716 15 February 2023 Introduction and Research question Many teenagers in America have gone through health classes and have had some sort of sexual education. Sexual education is required by law in 30 states along with the District of Columbia, however, 19 of those states teach abstinence-only sex ed. While teenage pregnancy is at its lowest rate since 1946, the sexually transmitted infection (STIS) rate has been on the rise. Does teaching teenagers to stay away from sex and be abstinent do more harm than good?
Author of "The Effectiveness of Abstinence Education Programs in Reducing Sexual Activity Among Youth", Robert Rector, is a senior research fellow in economic and domestic policies at the Heritage Foundation, which is a conservative think tank organization that began in the nation's capital. Aligning with his initial views, Rector believes that abstinence-only education is the most effective way to teach the youth of America about sex. In his article, he lists many reasons why abstinence is the only solution and combats conflicting teaching methods, such as informing about safe-sex and contraceptives. He claims that more liberal sexual education methods "implicitly condone sexual activity among teens" (Rector). He continues to destruct comprehensive
My bill is on comprehensive sexual education. I decided to go with this bill because I strongly believe that sex ed should be more than just abstinence. My goal by getting this bill passed is to be able to inform the students in a way they will actually understand and follow through. Just telling them that it’s bad won’t do them any good and majority of the time they won’t listen. So I believe that if students are supposed to learn this course, why not teach it so they learn what else comes of the course instead of just abstinence.
Teenage pregnancy is the condition of being pregnant of adolescence aged 10 to 19. Those who are affected are the girl herself up to the national society. The victims of teenage pregnancy are the girl herself, her child, her parents and relatives and the national society as a whole. It will also probably make her economically vulnerable.
