At the time of conception, the sperm penetrates the ovum generally in the upper fallopian tube and a new entity comes into existence. From conception, the living being is a zygote for seven weeks, an embryo at eight weeks, and a fetus at twelve weeks. The living being undergoes extensive development of body parts and distinct abilities grow as the human being grows. The pregnancy lasts up to nine months and is a bonding process between mother and child. Abortion is a choice that takes away the right for a human being to live and should not be supported because it can also cause greater damage to the mother.

In a country with one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world, the basic survival was the main concern. The story is simple and in the direct way to teach local mothers how to make mashed baby food for their children. As at that time the custom was to directly change the babies’ breast milk as food for adult’s younger brother's birth.

Teen pregnancies have become much more common with the oversexualized views of our millennial era, and often times young parents cannot handle the stress of the child. In 2013 alone, 273,105 babies were born to women aged 15–19 years. If abortion is not their number one choice, they will most likely turn to adoption, leaving the population problem still in existence. People often use the common phrase “adoption is always an option” but are unaware that there are currently “397,122 children are living without permanent families in the foster care system (Congressional Coalition On Adoption Institute, CCAI).

For a woman to achieve this she would need to use contraceptives for around three decades (“Contraceptive Use in the United States.”). Even with the technology that has come about recently that gives women the ability to track ovulation, medical birth control is still needed. About 61 million women in the U.S are at the age for child bearing, but about 43 million of these women are at risk for unwanted pregnancy (“Contraceptive Use in the United States.”). This means that either they do not have the means to purchase birth control, their religious beliefs restrict them from acquiring contraceptives, or a multitude of other various reasons. Couples who do not use any form of contraceptives have about an eighty-five percent chance of becoming pregnant in a year.
Also, it is projected that more than 1 million registered nurses will reach the age of retirement in the next 10 to 15 years according to the Health Resources and Services Administration. A third factor in the nursing shortage impact is that changing demographics trigger a need for more nurses to care for the baby boomers population. Demographics refer to age, gender, ethnicity, mobility, disabilities, language, employment status and location. Once the baby boomers reach age 60 and beyond, the demand for nurses will only increase dramatically. Statistics report that the ratio of potential caregivers to care for the elderly population will decrease by 40% between the years 2010 and 2030.
According to the Office of National Statistics, in the USA every year nearly 750,000 teens become pregnant, namely 3 out of 10 American girls get pregnant at least once before 20 years old. In addition, 75% of teens do not receive any formal instruction on any forms of contraception. Consequently, teenage pregnancy turns into a serious issue in the modern society. So, the government should provide young population with birth control on demand because it can reduce the amount of unintended pregnancies, as well as provide young women with full information support and give them freedom to choose (Nytimes.com 1). First of all, government-funded programs open an access to affordable health care.
Indeed human rights have failed to achieve its goals in many countries around the globe due to economical and political diversities. According to Himalayan Foundation, 20,000 Nepali girls are enslaved. The recent Rohingya refugee crisis and genocide by Burma has questioned human rights defenders.
