In the cases where the pregnancy was unintended, abortion is considered by many to be an accessible procedure to subdue the existing life being carried by the mother. In the end, the lives of the mother and child are at stake and children should have the right to
According to Rewire.news, 70 percent of all teenagers are having consensual sex by the time they are 19, even though they are constantly being told not to. This shows that teens are going to be having sex to matter what, and it's not fair to consider them a sex offender for wanting to be intimate with the person they love. In order to prevent innocent teenagers from being titled as rapists for the rest of their lives, the “15 and up Jensales Law,” should be created. Statistics from the “Juvenile Justice Bulletin,” by Jeff Slowikowski show that one third of all rape cases (35.6%) are committed by minors. If we lower the consent age, it would result in less rape cases.
Analyzing an Extended Essay: On Date Rape We live in a society that is filled with dangerous crimes such as rape and date rape, where one cannot simply trust another. Date rape is a little different from rape in terms that the rapist is someone the victim knows or had some kind of romantic connection between them. Date rape happens most commonly to young girls and in colleges. In “On Date Rape”, Paglia argues that women should be responsible for their actions and its consequences in a case of a date rape. However, the author fails to present a valid argument as she includes fallacies such as double standard, appeal to fear, and false analogy.
I feel that the sex offender registry is has gotten out of hand. I feel that it should be for certain offenders that have been psychiatrically evaluated over time while they are in prison and in regards to the type of crime they committed. The registries now are so cluttered with "offenders" who would never repeat offend due to the situation such as a statutory rape conviction which is usually one person over 18 and the victim within 2-3 years age difference. It ruins that person's life sometimes only due to a pissed off parent of the victim. I also feel we shouldn't allow offenders out of prison without treatment FIRST.
For example if the children are abused or neglected then according to the Children’s Protection Act (SA) 1993 sanctions need to be imposed to offenders. Judges have the power to set sanctions that will act as a punishment for offenders, to demonstrate that their behaviour was unacceptable, which in turn acts as a deterrent for other offenders. The five adults at the centre of the horrific scene were convicted of abuse and one found not guilty due to mental incompetence. The mother was not jailed as the court ruled she was mentally unfit to stand trial. Trudy Quinlivan was later sentences to a 10-year term for aggravated count of committing an assault, after she was released into the community on a nine-year supervision order, which was breached.
About half of all South African teenagers aged between 15 and 19 reported having had sex. Teenage pregnancy is considered as one major distraction to the success of many girls’ education. Teenage pregnancy is a social problem with biological and physical consequences. Sexual education is now part of the learning area ‘Life Skills” in schools, but teenagers still fall pregnant because they are not open and lack transparency when discussing sexual matters. Teenage pregnancy has always been a medical problem no matter how many young girls are educated about sexual intercourse, condoms, contraceptives and HIV/AIDS.
Teen pregnancy is a communal problem, a family problem, and a personal problem all rolled into one. It frequently goes hand in hand with premarital sex. Problems come when the news needs to breach each parent’s party. After which, these impressions simply serve no purpose but to put them off, and deduce to mere nuisance to them when the truth of their situation slowly sinks in. How do they provide for the child if their parents cut them short financially?
Who are Crack Babies? “Crack Babies” is a common term and or myth known as a baby born with severe brain problems and abnormalities. They are babies that are born to mothers who use cocaine during their pregnancy. Most likely the baby was exposed to cocaine from the mother in a smokable form as fetuses. Growing up a child will have social problems, he/she will not be able to fit in because of their physical appearance and their mental state will not be accurate.
Child abuse is the maltreatment of a minor, and it can come in many different forms. The most common forms of abuse are physical, neglect, or sexual molestation. In The Glass Castle, all of these forms of abuse become more pronounced as the story line progresses. As Jeannette Walls grows from girl to woman, most of her abuse stems from her alcoholic father and her selfish mother. The abuse Jeannette faces as an adolescent, shapes a woman later affected by her events, that are created by her parents' selfishness.
Minors in unfortunate situations use emancipation to seize their moment to get them out of it. Too many young minors are stuck in situations they can not get out of, such as the Diamond v. Diamond court case, “Daughter, represented by counsel, told the district court that she had moved out of Mother’s home due to domestic violence and substance abuse issues”(Law.1). In this court case the minor was experiencing physical abuse from her parent, therefore not in a safe living environment. Emancipation can also benefit minors who have made mistakes and gotten pregnant too young, for instance Cooper
