The funds they receive from the government are needed. Planned Parenthood offers many of their patient’s free treatment or exams for cancer and STD’s. This causes the need for government funds. Another thing People also argue is that they shouldn’t be funded when they sell baby parts. However, they’re giving the unborn fetus to research facilities.
Out of the 2.5 million people who visit Planned Parenthood clinics a year, the majority are low-income women who have no other alternative. Therefore, defunding Planned Parenthood would only prevent patients, who are already struggling financially, from receiving preventative care. Politicians in congress only want to shut down these health centers because they offer access to safe and legal abortions, without considering the people it would affect the most. Politicians are not considerate of the struggle some people deal with to pay for their health care because they do not deal with the same hardships of everyday people like
This is usually in the case of a multi-fetal pregnancy, to decrease health risks to a mother carrying more than one child. However, this is very rare as it occurs only in 1%-2% pregnancies. On the other hand, in the Eastern part of the world, especially in China and India, it is very common for couples to have an illegal selective abortion. This kind of selective abortion is removing a fetus because they may have birth defects/disabilities or the gender of the child is not preferred by the parent. Few people may agree with this, particularly citizens of China due to the one-child policy that restricts the number of children a couple can have.
The Pillow Angel otherwise knows as a little girl name Ashley who is disabled. Ashley is brain damaged so in fear of her getting out of hand when she gets bigger, the parents of Ashley decided to have her dosed with high amounts of estrogen. The purpose of the treatment is to keep her small, so she is easier to take care of. Just over two years of this treatment Ashley’s growth plates were closed and her height was reduced by 13 inches. The parents say the goal was “ to improve our daughters quality of life and not to convenience her caregivers.” The treatments didn’t stop there, they removed her uterus to decrease any pain she may have eventually had, and also removed her breast tissue.
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. Warren supports her argument by saying that a nearly full-developed fetus is no more significant than a small embryo because “…it is not fully conscious… it cannot reason or communicate message… and has no self-awareness” (Warren, page 499). In contrast, our text states that “…some fetuses develop the capacity to survive outside the womb…” after nearly being two-thirds fully developed; this means that a fetus is ultimately capable of communication and awareness through it’s movements (Munson and Lague, page 469). Warren’s claim is meant to support the idea that is acceptable to abort a fetus, which is considered a “potential person,” no matter what stage of development it is in because that would then be taking away the rights of the woman, which is considered an actual person. Unlike Warren, Patrick Lee and Robert P George claim “…
..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.
While the fetus is developing in the incubator/large container, if it has the same physical and psychological aspects as it would while in the mother’s womb, some of the issues against abortion may be eliminated. The concern anti-abortionists have with eliminating the fetus may no longer be. The women who prefer an abortion, still have that option, but they will not be killing the fetus. Anti-abortionists would prefer the incubator/large container method over an abortion because you are not killing a fetus. Many babies would be given a future that they may not have been given prior to the incubator/large container option.
Abortion Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by abolishing a fetus or embryo before it can survive outside the uterus. Abortion is a very controversial topic, for example, one side of this topic believes abortion is cruel and committing murder, while the other side believes that since the fetus or embryo isn 't developed enough to be considered a living human being yet, that abortion is not commiting murder. Despite this information, there is a lot more to abortion than the opinion of it being “right” or “wrong”. According to “Students for life” who are pro life, about 1 million abortions are executed each year in the US. That data adds up to 22% of pregnancies ending in abortion.
That being said, the effects of late-term abortion are blown far out of proportion in just another effort of scaring young women away from making their own decisions about their own uterus’. Another thing that scares the women from having late-term abortions done is the fear that the baby will survive the abortion attempt after undergoing the entirety of the process. Some women (and men) believe that after a fetus undergoes an abortion procedure, but still happens to make it out alive that they are murdered. Not true. By law, if an aborted fetus is born alive, the doctors and nurses are supposed to do everything in their power to keep that baby alive and to give that baby a chance at a healthy life.
My aunt was previously diagnosed with Breast Cancer, they were able to detect it on its dormant stage, which means the cancer is slowed down or asleep. So they were able to remove the cancer and that layer of mass was taken to a laboratory which later was detected cancer free. So my aunt wasn 't recommended to take chemotherapy treatments, due to the laboratory outcome, but as far as being a Pediatric Oncologist, I would want to make the biggest impact in my patient 's life. I 've heard many stories of kids being diagnosed with Leukemia stage 2 and 3 and were able to push against all odds due to the help of their doctor. I would want to be that kind of doctor that would want to try their hardest to make miracles happen and save their lives during the hardest and difficult time of
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. Abortion trends throughout
2. How to Beat Nipple Confusion with Childbirth Educator Lora Schwacke According to Lora Schwacke, a Bradley Certified Childbirth Educator in New Jersey, there is a very simple way to stop nipple confusion before it even starts. Nipple confusion is a process that occurs with many infants, when the parents switch between breastfeeding and a bottle. The baby often decides that they prefer one form of feeding over the other, and will even go as far as to refuse to eat with the other method. For mothers who wish to breastfeed, but also desire a break from the task, there is a simple answer to heading nipple confusion off at the pass.
This does not make sense, because the fetus does not have feelings or a life until they are outside the uterus. Society still insists that fetuses are superior to the mother, which is false. A bill has been revived that has banned abortion after the twentieth week of pregnancy, and most of Americans support it ("House Republicans"). This bill is still in effect and should be taken into consideration based off of the improvements in women’s rights and abortions. Another point is late-term abortion specifically is wrong because the fetus is more developed at the twentieth week, which is defined as late-term, and can be identified in sex and if there are any complications; therefore personifying the once small fetus.
However, it is often forgotten that the organization serves a variety of medical conditions. By defunding Planned Parenthood the American society will suffer by denying those who are below the federal property lines to treat their problems, that are not relating to abortion. Planned Parenthood’s patients are not only women, and as stated before, abortion services only make up 3% of Planned Parenthood’s treatments. Also, by denying proper funding to Planned Parenthood, those who may have contracted an STI/STD are unable to get treatment due to the inability to pay for advanced technology that is required. Overall, by defunding Planned Parenthood the government is denying a large number of people the right to get medical treatment for their conditions because of conservative
In 2014, 360,000 women received breast exams, while another 270,000 received pap tests (Klasing, 2017). Both of these tests provide low-income women an equal opportunity to detect cancer early in an effort to receive life-saving treatment before it is too late. Like I’ve mentioned before, so many people associated Planned Parenthood with abortions. I’ve heard so many times, “why should we have to pay for women to have abortions.” However, absolutely none of the government funding received by Planned Parenthood pays for abortion services. In fact it’s quite the opposite.
