I am still a strong believer in pro-choice, and the ability to be allowed to decide what you want to do with your child. Though there is an increased popularity in contraceptives, there are still occurrences where someone might become pregnant without the intention to do so. Sometimes there is a health risk involved, and pregnancy can harm the health of the mother. The more I have researched statistics and various reasons/stories for pro-choice, the more I feel more strengthened in my opinion. A good example of this is when I read about the safety and convenience behind abortion procedures; there is a mortality rate of less than 1 in 100,000, and newer semi-conscious drug allows for the individual to leave the hospital/clinic as soon as an hour after the
In the first article I read listed the vaccine laws for all fifty states, and the pros and cons of making it mandatory for every to get certain vaccines. Some of the pros where saving parents money in the long run if the child contracts an illness there is a vaccine for, they protect unborn children is a mother has gotten these vaccines, and they can save children’s lives. Come of the cons are there are ingredients that are morally wrong in some cultures, the Sid effects of these vaccines can have serious of fatal side effects, and some vaccines have harmful ingredients. There is a lot of concern among parents and schools because if student are going to school with another student who is not vaccinated there can be an outbreak of a certain
Most of society today believes that birth control is only used for the “stopping of the egg” in the ovary. There is much more then just stopping the pregnancy. Birth control has many positive side effects which include the following: stops heavy periods, helps prevent painful acne, and can actually cut your chances of ovarian cancer in half. Most girls start to menstruate between age 10 and 15 years, the average age being 12. Most teenagers experience bad period cramps and have the feeling of “knives going through the abdomen.” Being on birth control can help the lining of the uterus thin out, meaning less painful periods.
This is theorized that mothers who have a BMI greater than 30 could pass on obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases through that of the umbilical cord during pregnancy. It is also theorized that those who go to the 30 BMI index will also have bigger babies when it comes to the time of the delivery. Although the whole idea of ‘eating for two’ while pregnant has been talked about during pregnancy, this is nothing but a myth. The whole idea of being
Less than 1 out of 100 women will get pregnant each year if they take the pill correctly. But as every medicine, the pill also has side effects. These effects include: bleeding between periods, breast sensitivity, nausea and vomiting. These side effects often go away after a while of using the pill. But, the pill also has advantages and can be taken for other reasons apart from birth control.
It’s success rate is not at 100 percent. About thirty to thirty-five percent of women under thirty-five do not have success with IVF, according to The American Pregnancy Association. Another pro to this procedure could be for a family wanting more than one child. Multiple eggs are harvested in some cases. The doctor can freeze the eggs and harvest them for a later procedure.
Dear Editor, Today I am going to bring something very important to your attention. I am going to be discussing getting vaccinated and why it is so important. I feel that getting vaccinated is vital because vaccinations lower your risk of death, they are a safe way to prevent illness, and you are protecting those around you by getting them. Vaccines definitely lower your risk of death. Each year in the U.S., 50,000 adults die from a disease that could have easily been prevented if they simply got vaccinated.
If this method of contraception was made over-the-counter, there’s no doubt many girls will start to use it and lower their own chances of pregnancy. In Oregon, it is allowed that women over 18 can obtain birth control pills without a prescription, but that isn’t the case for the many others under the age. “People under 18 are still required to get their first contraceptive prescription from a doctor.” (Q1) It would make more sense to allow minors too to have over-the-counter birth control pills, considering it seems much more easier for an adult to get a prescription rather than a young teenager. Krishna Upadhya, an assistant professor of pediatrics claims that the possible negative side effects of birth control pills are less common in younger girls. ‘The pill is "potentially safer the younger you are," says Upadhya.’ (Q2) Venous thromboembolism, a blood clot breaking loose and traveling through the blood, is a possible side-effect of contraceptive pills containing both estrogen and progestin; fortunately, it is more common in older women, which is another reason why over-the-counter pills should be applied to
In the article written by J.M. Stolzer and Syed Afzal Hossain, they state “that women who breastfeed have lower rates of ovarian, breast, and endometrial cancers” (2). The longer the mother breastfeeds the child, there will be about a 25% decrease chance of getting breast cancer compared to women who fed their children with formula. Also, during lactation the mother is less likely to get hemorrhaging, uterine involution, post pregnancy weight loss, and her hormones change in a positive way. Her hormones cause her to have an increase of self-confidence, lowered anxiety, less depression, less mood swings and a larger chance of mother to child
Most couples do several cycles before one is successful. Another unbelieveable thing I read is that some fertility clinics will make a deal with couples in an atempt to lessen the price. They say if the couple will pay $20,000 more than what is typically charged (it ends up being about $50,000) they promise multiple procedures until one is successful. If they aren’t successful after a set period of time the couple will get a full refund. The catch is that most of the time they are successful the first time, so the couple could have paid $30,000, but instead they spent $50,000 for the clinic to keep (“A Baby or Your Money Back”).
Today more than four million American individuals rely on Title X and its services. Without Title X, over four million individuals will lost the affordable preventive health care they have. Doing away with Title X is also doing away with women 's rights, and a woman 's control over her own body. I know that many of you believe that doing away with federal funding for Planned Parenthood is for the best, but in actual reality it is probably one of the worst things you could do. Doing away with Title X would lead to more unintended pregnancies because women 's access to affordable birth control would be cut off.
