Firstly, it explores the benefits that legalizing abortion brings to the society and secondly, it explores the drawbacks that legalizing abortion brings to the society in general. 1.3 Scope of Research Unlike debates about abortion that often argue about the impact abortion has on immediate parties, this report focuses on the impact of abortion on the society in general. It also emphasizes on the effects caused by abortion on demand and sex-selective abortion instead of abortion in self-defense. 2.0 Procedure In the process of writing this report, a combination of primary and secondary sources was used for reference.
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
Not only would it provide another option to a difficult decision, it could help benefit society. Women have abortions for many different reasons and we should respect their reasons. One of the top reasons on why women don’t have abortions is “Having a baby would dramatically change my life (i.e interfere with education, employment and ability to take care of existing children and other dependents) (74% in 2004 and 78% in 1987)” (Knapp, 2007, pg.
The development of technology and innovation is facilitating the discovery of more efficient and reliable birth control techniques that serve to protect the user from sexual infections. This is unlike the traditional methods that only prevented pregnancy to some extent (Policy 12-34). The importance of birth control cannot be ignored in the current society. Its effects are felt and seen at the individual level, family level, and country level and even in the entire world.
The society would be a senior society because the number of newborn is reduced due to abortion. A senior society lacks creativity, innovation, and a young labor force. Abortion should be illegal because of its negative effect on population growth and society as a
Some examples are that for the past several years we have heard that polio vaccine lead lymphoma and caused the AIDS epidemic, and the MMR vaccine lead to Crohn’s disease and autism. These theories, however have not bothered themselves with facts, that might be fair in the time of chiropractic’s infancy, but now, in the 20th century it is not acceptable. The lack of true information about vaccination is a struggle to the vaccination policy. A research by Kennedy et al. shows that health professionals consider that girls are empowered to make decisions about the HPV vaccine for themselves, some of them decide not to take the vaccine for the lack of information.
The prenatal diagnostics and prenatal screening being routine procedures should be considered as advantage of modern medicine. It helps to reveal wide spectrum of fetus abnormal conditions, but not only congenital defects and malformations. Early detection of many of them could help to perform surgical correction and necessary management as soon as possible in order to save newborns’ lives. On the other hand, this method is widely discussed and it has many opponents, and in some countries prenatal diagnostic procedures is not considered now as a screening method. Main ethical issues are terminations of pregnancies in case of malformations, which may be supposed as eugenical abortion, inform consent and problem of decision-making process.
People claim that suffering through a pregnancy, giving birth, and raising the unwanted child is the responsible thing to do if one gets pregnant. However, some would find that the more responsible solution is getting an abortion. Not everyone has access to contraception, or has been educated on how to use it. More work should be done to educate people on and create more access to contraception rather than punishing those who were not taught. “What if the fetus grows up to cure cancer?” is a common question posed by the opposite side of the argument.
Just think that is taxpayers are paying for 250,000 abortions a year (Conover), people are paying taxes to go towards something that isn’t beneficial to their community, and they aren’t benefiting off of it. On the other hand, there are people that think abortion should be legal because they think that it should be up to the mother to decide if she wants to keep the baby or not. People also want to say that there should be certain cases that abortion should be legal, and it’s the only option. However, abortion is more harmful to the women themselves than having the baby in the long
Profit and money are the driving factors behind so many things, that people are not very motivated to eradicate something that earns them billions of dollars. Yes, legislation such as those to reduce secondhand smoke positively affect health outcomes, but I feel it is not enough. Tobacco is a legal substance despite its known negative, sometimes fatal repercussions. There is a plethora of research regarding the deadly and harmful effects of smoking and cigarette use, yet it is a legal substance used by millions. I think that the government needs to forget the profit aspect and focus on its citizens health.
Miranda Carpenter Hypothesis There are many events in today’s society that has both positively, and negatively affected the consumers. One recent issue, is the plan to cut funding to Planned Parenthood Agencies. That being said, it is easy to depict that the number of unplanned pregnancies will increase, resulting in a higher number of Medicaid recipients. One sector of the debate on cutting the funding is the assumption of a selfish government, taking funding away from female medical services.
Inevitably, it would result in many more unplanned pregnancies which would equal more abortions. Really, if people want that number to go down they should be in favor of increasing the funding of Planned Parenthood. Supporting why the business should not be defunded since women would have the access to and be able to afford birth control and the number of abortions would go down, but if the government defunds them then women are not going to be able to get birth control to stop the unplanned pregnancy, which causes the abortions rise. Arguing to this the people wanting the defunding would say that the number of abortions would just continue to rise since Planned Parenthood if offering them. Which is untrue since they also offer contraception in which people could use to prevent unplanned pregnancies which lowers the abortion
Protectionism contributes to the abortion issue because there could be import tariffs, quotas, and possible subsidies or tax cuts to these doctors that are giving these abortions to women in these various countries. Since China has such a strong One-Child Policy, the country could be giving doctors tax reductions or benefits to help control the population. Cultural homogenization can be involved in the abortion issue from the integration of different cultures and countries contributing to the significant decrease in the female population. One culture may look at another culture and repeat the same
This program provided “early schooling, meals, and medical exams for impoverished preschool-aged children”2. This was crucial in order to lower the poverty rates. Children who receive an education are more likely to increase the standard of living in the future. Furthermore, Johnson created Medicare and Medicaid, which provided medical coverage to the elderly and those who were not working.
Knowing the statistics of what Planned Parenthood does and how many women and men use these services is important because of the misconceptions are present and prevalent in the minds of many. For example, most believe that abortion is all that Planned Parenthood does and that it is the most popular. However, as shown in the graph, abortion takes of 3% of all of Planned Parenthood’s services. In fact, Planned Parenthood performs STI/STD testing and treatment the most, with the next program being contraception. When the funding in places like Texas is lost, people go straight to abortion, when in fact, these men and women will be losing so much more than most realize.
