However, she continues on to state that neither the abortion of a fetus nor the killing of a neonate could count as murder of a person because both, a fetus and an infant, lack all of the plausible components of personhood. Warren explicates that in an impoverished society that is unable to care for its infants without jeopardizing the health and safety of its members, infanticide cannot be deemed morally wrong. She also claims that infanticide is morally justified in the form of euthanasia where the child is born with severe abnormalities and the parents are unable to afford the financial and emotional burdens of its treatment. Warren’s response to infanticide is completely justified because in case of life or death, the life of an actual person far outweighs the life of a potential
The owners of Hobby Lobby Stores Inc., the Greens, devoted Christians and married couple who filed a suit back in November 26, 2013. This lawsuit was filed because of what the Green’s had to offer their employees in their health care agreement. Being devoted Christians, it is against most people’s belief to use contraceptives. As a business owner who is closed on Sundays and pays 90 percent more above the federal minimum wage, it 's safe to say that the Green’s mix their religious beliefs into their business and make sure there employees are taken care of. Out of 20 FDA approved contraceptives that are federally mandated, the Green’s had only objection to four of them.
But they should not have the freedom to choose to end their own lives with the help of a physician. Such laws devalue human life. Medical diagnoses are often inaccurate, leaving people who have been told they will soon die, to sometimes live for many months or even years longer. It can also be argued that seriously ill people often suffer from undiagnosed depression or other mental illnesses that can impair their ability to make an informed decision. As Christian myself, physician assisted suicide goes against principles of the bible.
Most people tend to forget that most people receiving aid also are taxpayers. In 2010, nearly half the poor mother or near poor mothers were at least working part time (Cunha). If the people receiving aid are paying for the drug tests to they would probably rather keep that money then have it be wasted. Drug testing recipients is a waste of money since the government would be wasting more money on giving the tests then they would be
If a culture is isolated and has no contact with civilization, I can see why they would not be able to seek professional help. Different cultures and religions believe in different types of healing practices, there are a lot of Americans that use herbal remedies to cure all sorts of illnesses. If these remedies don’t work, it is the responsibility of the individual and family members to seek out proper medical treatment for the
Planned Parenthood receives about twelve percent of its $528.4 million dollars from the government through grants and reimbursements from a law called Title X. Title X gives money to not only Planned Parenthood but also hospitals, schools, health departments, and other non- profits. About the other seventy- five percent of its money comes from patients they are serving insured by Medicaid. A government shutdown would mean that thousands of people working in the government would furlough if Congress did not make this decision. With only seven hours remaining till the government ran out of money, the House of Representatives passed a bill with 257 votes in favor,
Some parents have refused vaccinations for their children based on religious objections. The moral opposition to these vaccines is due to the acquisition of the initial cell lines in which vaccine viruses are grown. (Chatterjee, 2010) These parents believe it is morally illicit to attain fetal tissue in any manner whether it’s the mother having the abortion, the abortionist performing the act, the researcher or the vaccine manufacturer. Not only do they feel “these parties are all equally guilty of assisting in premeditated murder but they fear these practices can contribute in the encouragement of voluntary abortions, for the intended purpose of making vaccines.” https://cogforlife.org/vaccines-abortions/ In response to these concerns, the
People do use religious and opinionated excuses to prevent their children from becoming vaccinated. Parents and guardians believe myths and Facebook posts instead of well educated doctors to determine if their child should be vaccinated. This is a huge mistake! By not vaccinating your children properly you are not only putting them at risk, but the people around them that they encounter daily (CDC). Parents should not be able to make up an uneducated excuse to keep their children from being properly vaccinated.
There are things that we are forced to do. Yet people refuse, so the government just goes along with it and says ok. We don’t really have religious freedom. Catholic hospitals, which are almost everywhere in the U.S., were supposed to have abortion pills and other things that help kill the life of a
He is planning to spend six trillion dollars less than what we are currently spending every single year. Right now, the U.S is spending about ten thousand dollars per person which adds up to three trillion dollars per year. In other words, he is planning to get the country out of debt with the money we aren’t using for the Medicare. When you propose all these things, it sounds phenomenal to have more Medicare coverage for less, but analysts say it’s too good to be true. According to media and Kenneth Thorpe, an Emory Universal Health-Care expert who worked in the Bill Clinton, “finds that Mrs. Sanders’ proposal would actually harm many working beneficiaries of Medicaid, the state- federal health care plan for the poor and the near poor”.
The reconciliation bill, which will end taxpayer dollars going into Planned Parenthood, is a large step for pro-lifers. This bill will also “…repeal major components of Obamacare, which also help subsidize abortion” (Freiburger). However, the other position is in favor of taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood. Obama dismissed the reconciliation bill, saying it was “refighting (an) old political battle” (Freiburger). Regarding the video leaked online about Planned Parenthood, they said that they do not use tissue without legal consent and are ‘very, very sensitive’ about being perceived as illegally profiting from organ sales and charges only for the cost…of shipping the tissue” (Somashekhar &
So according to the Greatest Happiness Principle, the Government cutting funding of Planned Parenthood, solely based on abortions, is a moral wrong to the citizens of the United States. There is a misconception that Planned Parenthood only does abortions, and services women only. Both are incorrect. Planned Parenthood services men, women, and teens. So, by cutting funding, the Government also deprives men and teens their moral right to health care.
