No one had to ask could everything about Henrietta be released, but it was released without incident. But it took 20+ years for the information about Henritetta’s cells. It was still illegal for the doctors to take her cells and have their way with them, without her consent. These doctors and scientist did not really care about Henrietta because she was a colored women. Things would have a lot different if Henrietta was a white women with cancer.
In the short story “Hills Like White Elephants,” by Ernest Hemingway, there is a relationship unfolding, a complex relationship difficult to understand. The relationship is revealed by a conversation between a man and a woman, a topic of conversation that people rarely discussed in the period that the story was set. After researching interpretations, it is consistently said “She is pregnant, and he wants her to have an abortion” (Weeks 76), to which I agree that this conversation is about abortion. With the man seemingly pushing the topic and the girl hesitant and questionable, it is unsure as to the result of their conversation. However, it is my belief that she chose to follow her heart and not get the abortion.
Although Mr. Grierson was very overbearing and caused most of his daughter’s internal issues, he was not present for a great portion of her life. Therefore, he could not have a say so in whether or not she freed herself from the imprisonment he forced her to live in. The central conflict was not driven by a gender issue because the person responsible of the problems leading to the conflict was pointed toward Emily herself. It is clear to see that Emily took her life in her own possession despairingly for the worst. She was able to have complete self-control and freely make any decision she wished to make, but she could not rescue herself from the dreadful consequences that awaited
Throughout the book it is implied that she had many sexual encounters with men, and one more dominate through the book with Armando, a Colombian drug dealer. Sena never gives a reason why she had so many sexual encounters, but from my prospective this comes from her lack of attention. Her mother relied on a man to make her happy, so subconsciously Sena also did the same. The lack of parenting from both her parents, in short, lead Sena life of crime, which is another theme of the book. Parents play a vital role in children lives even especially when they are young, there is a loss
The Scarlet Letter In The Scarlet Letter by Daniel Hawthorne many villainous acts occur that contribute to the plot and direction of the text. One antagonist in the novel is Chillingworth, the “departed” husband of Hester Prynne. Chillingworth and his constant mission to gain his wife's love and to reveal the father with whom Hester's baby was conceived by leads him to take some villainous actions. Chillingworth took many actions to obtain his goals, examples of this are constantly exemplified throughout the novel, one example is Chillingworth’s unrelenting hatred towards Dimmesdale.
This theme is subtly shown throughout the story, but becomes more apparent after the main event, the slaughter. After Date Bed is presumed missing, Mud, despite the fact that she is not of She-S blood, shows concern for her friend and adopted family member throughout the story – “It is just as well that Mud’s thoughts can’t be heard because what she is thinking is, “I’m the one who loves her. None of you loves her as I do,” and the uselessness of her love arouses her to such a pitch of anguish that she thinks of returning to the plain and searching for Date Bed on her own” (Gowdy, 105). The other She-S’s feel the same way as well – She-Snorts states, “I would not go to The Safe Place…knowing that Date Bed might still be alive and lost” (Gowdy, 249). If the She-S’s didn’t care for their family as much, they would have abandoned all thought of Date Bed and wouldn’t bother searching for her.
Neither John nor Jennie pay attention to the speaker and her journaling. In the 1890s and before, postpartum depression had never been taken seriously because women were viewed as too emotional and delicate. Joan Busfield supports this theory with her charts of how many people were admitted into mental hospitals, who were mostly around childbearing age. Sara Harkness writes about women’s emotions and how they are affected before and after childbirth. Verta Taylor discusses the sociological aspect of mental illness, which can connect to postpartum depression.
Instead of having an abortion, women can choose a more beneficial option, such as giving the baby up for adoption. When women decide to get an abortion, they don’t think about adoption because of the long process, even though it can help other families who can’t have children. For example “It’s logical that anti-abortion organizations seeking to prevent abortions and promote traditional family structures would aggressively promote adoption, but this connection is often overlooked…”(Joyce). Many women that get pregnant with an unwanted child usually look into having an abortion first rather than going through the long process of pregnancy and giving the baby up for adoption. Furthermore, “In President Obama 's speech… he suggested that one solution to lowering abortion rates is making abortion more available”(Joyce).
One mistake can be caught on camera by those who are distrustful of nurses. Overall, Fowler article was extremely unsuccessful at pusadering her audience to take action and become a part of policy making in healthcare because of her structural errors and usage of irrelevant sources in a failed attempt to build credibility with her audience. Fowler’s structural weaknesses in her organization and thesis statement was not persuasive, thus leaving her readers confused. Fowler first begins her article with background information about her topic, stating the history of Nursing. She outlines extensive details about the founding of the code of ethics for three paragraphs, which was not necessary for her argument.
The Roe v. Wade case decision has been very controversial even today when it comes to abortion. This case argued that abortion should be legal and that women should have the right to decide such important decision. Roe v. Wade divided the nation during the 1970s like no other case has before. In the 1970's every state had different laws and regulations in regards to abortion but most states banned abortion unless the health of the mother could be at risk if she was to give birth (McBride).
Alice in Second Wave Feminism. I feel like Alice fits into second wave feminism due to her considering getting an abortion. Abortion was illegal at the time this book was written so Alice was technically not allowed to pursue an abortion. She would of had to go to a place that was not very pleasing at all and was very unsanitary and unsafe. Alice was also sexually assault even though she was on drugs no one cared that she did not have control of her body.
This documentary covers sex from ancient Rome to the Renaissance, topics such as human biology, art, humor, and attitudes. In the Middle Ages, celibacy was considered the only way, and such things as homosexuality and other sexual acts deemed sinful were punishable by death. The church actually would have art and paintings, some sexually explicit, around to depict in full view of what not to do. The Professors in this documentary discuss just how preoccupied the church became in regulating and repressing sex. A male dominated religious belief system grew from the desire to dominate politically.
Dibbling didn’t stop there she criticize Conard by stating that it’s culturally acceptable for women to have unwanted babies in the village in fact she provokes that scientist/doctors by saying “what the study fails to question is whether the ‘unexposed; women began to have more miscarriages as they ingested radioactive substance in food and water on Rongelap”(Dibblin 40).this means that the scientist didn’t di enough research or follow up to check whether the unexposed women were consuming radioactive in any format. Although she doesn’t have a certified proof to support her claim for the cause of miscarriage she goes on by stating a general assumption by saying “ by 1960 it was widely known that radiation could produce fetal and genetic damage and doctors should have been on the lookout for it”(Dibblin 40).this means that it’s a known fact that by 1960 radiation could cause birth defects ,the doctors should have known by now that the women in Rongelap might have had the same effect. This shows that she doesn’t have a certified proof but she does stay still in her
In the Dominican Republic, abortion is illegal. Article 37 of their constitution states that “the right to life is inviolable from the moment of conception and until death”. When a pregnant sixteen-year-old girl was admitted to the hospital, diagnosed with acute leukemia, doctors were hesitant to administer the chemotherapy treatment needed to try to save her life. Chemotherapy usually has adverse effects on a fetus and can lead to termination of the pregnancy, and since no exemptions were made on the ban on abortion, doctors did not want to take the chance and treat her for fear of legal repercussions if the fetus were to die from complications of said treatment. After many appeals to the government and the medical staff by the girl’s mother,
She claimed that her pregnancy was the result of rape in order to strengthen her case, but later publicly admitted that this was a lie. She said that the Texas criminal abortion statutes were unconstitutional, that she was unmarried and pregnant and that she wished to terminate her pregnancy. She also said that her life was not in danger because of the pregnancy, but that she could not afford to travel to another jurisdiction in order to receive a legal abortion under safe
