Birth control is highly effective, Oral contraception is 91-99% effective, (multiple sources say it varies depending on how well the user is using it, but general consensus that it is in this range of numbers) condoms are also highly effective as they are able to prevent 98% of pregnancies. This makes it extremely hard to have an unwanted baby unless something special happens. If you manage to impregnate a girl unintentionally without using these methods then you only have yourself to blame. Abortions create another safety net for this for people who are reckless. It’s a cycle, a man sleeps around (or woman), gets impregnated and then gets abortions because they don’t feel like using birth control.
they cannot conceive following a previous pregnancy. (PubMed.com) However, there are many types of reproductive technologies provided with a wide variety of reproductive possibilities, one of them being In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), which has massive social impacts. IVF is a procedure in which eggs from a woman’s ovary are removed.
Nowadays only 25% result in a live birth and varies from woman to woman. It has been used for a long time and it has been tracked throughout those so it is considered safe. There may be associated side effects such as ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome (OHSS). It is more successful than IUI and other forms of assisted reproductive technology. A multiple pregnancy may occur; this happens around 20-30% of in vitro fertilizations embryo transfer, these pregnancies are dangerous for both the mother and the baby.
Human reproductive cloning, if successful, will allow infertile couples to have a genetically related child. Identical sex couples can also have a child without the use of donor sperm or donor eggs, although the men would require a surrogate to carry the clone until birth. All of these are restricted by current medical advancements. However, before we can create a
This method can come with benefits; but with many consequences as well. The C section (as it is often called) is where the delivery of a baby happens through the mother’s abdomen. This type of surgery is usually planned beforehand which will be told by the doctor. A C section is needed in multiple situations. For example, if a person is giving birth and a sudden problem occurs such as the baby is unable to move in the birth canal or the cervix refuses to open, then an unplanned C section is used.
As a result, several babies died from beriberi, while others were left permanently disabled. Another factor to take into consideration is baby formula prices, which can be quite high, especially in the beginning when it is your baby 's sole source of food. Cheap baby formula might make things easier on your family 's budget, but the question is whether it is still good for your baby. On the other hand, if you find two formulas made by different companies with the same nutritional composition, but one is cheaper than the other, you would probably choose the one that is less expensive. At the same time, your decision cannot only be based on financial
The procedure is deep rooted and highly intricate and definitely requires a good medical backing and services which ends up adding on to the cost of it. The choice in itself being tough involves medical risks too whereas there is always a bright side. Countering these are also some pros of the procedure. The self-blame game, the regrets of not being able to fit into the ideal motherhood and family life cut down to almost zilch. Egg Freezing as a process doesn’t have dependency on anybody else except for you, which makes it easier to opt for.
Some families cannot support multiple births with their economic conditions. If there’s no selective abortions, they won’t be able to provide a good environment to raise the children anyways. According the U.S. Department of Agriculture, there’s a report in 2009 saying that it can cost between $205,000 and $475,000 to raise a child to the year 18, which seems as a number not quite affordable for a poor family, it will be more extreme when it becomes to be multiple birth. (Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion) Therefore, selective abortion is the only way to ensure that the family can provide the best conditions to raise the
Abortion is an emotional issue that deserves special attention. I believe in the case of Sheila and Roger selective abortion would be appropriate. In this case, Sheila’s prenatal diagnosis determined that Sheila is carrying a set of twins with a genetic disease that will compromise their lives forever. Sheila is very aware of any possible detriments if she gives birth to the twins because her sister has a child with Cystic Fibrosis. Considering the circumstances Sheila and Roger must decide what is in the best interest of the fetuses.
Victor Frankenstein tries creating the creature with his new technology. With his creature he thought the creature would be a perfect human but it ended up being ugly and scary. This shows that doctors nowadays should not try and create and human. Trying to create a human would require doctors to changing stuff in the
Embryonic stem cells are the cells which potentially provide life to a blastocyst and lead to the creation of a fetus, or baby. Recently there have been many experiments conducted to extract embryonic stem cells from the blastocyst. With this new research, has also come a huge controversy. Although embryonic stem cell research is practiced with good intents and is designed to find cures for people already suffering or living a limited lifestyle due to health disabilities, what is not always mentioned is that another human’s life is being destroyed in the process. These innocent babies, whether it be considered legal or not, are being plucked from their mother’s womb to be used for nothing more than a science experiment.
