The Equal Rights Amendment was passed to eliminate the discrimination on women and men to have equal rights throughout the United States. Political campaign and politicians were trying to go against voters from supporting the Equal Rights Amendment but Phyllis Schlafly attracted the attention of the nation and she points out that equality of rights under the law should not be denied by the United States or by any state because of gender. People agree with her because she believes equality of rights would eliminate laws that protected women and if the amendment became law they will lose preferential treatment in child custody, legally be subject to the draft and might get less pay from child support. Phyllis says, “why do we have to lower ourselves
Johnson also believes we should do the illegal and unimaginable, that the fifty five million illegal Americans in the country right now should be able to easily get a work visa and start paying taxes and living as a citizen but not making them a citizen. Johnson is also pro-choice. He believes planned parenthood does a lot of good for women 's health and it should stay that way. He also states he’d rather give the choice to the states. And will support and fund planned parenthood, except for abortion.
Roe filed a lawsuit on wade claiming that a Texas law was criminalizing majority of every abortion. During that time period abortion were really only considered if the pregnancy was considered life threatening to the mother. This court case still remains one of the most intensely debated cases making the House Bill 3994 stand out. With this bill come many different opinions with some highly though of voices claiming there thought on the bill. Some representatives think that the bill is covering all the loopholes and clarifying the rules for underage minors who wish to proceed with and abortion without the consent of parent or guardian but the consent of a judge while others are seeing the complication with constitutional rights and the right to privacy.
Although no international human rights treaty explicitly mentions abortion, several signatory nations have interpreted a requirement of legalised abortion as implied by the rights addressed in treaties which include; the rights to health care, life, non-discrimination, equality, security, liberty, privacy and religion, along with the right to be free from cruel and inhuman treatment. The fact that international human rights treaties do not specify what marks the beginning of life further grants legitimacy to the argument. Such interpretation has become influential, subsequently diminishing the influence of the actual text of treaties, which has had an impact on how national legislatures confront abortion. Treaty monitoring bodies including the Human Rights Committee (HRC) and the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination
Under the communist regime , in 1956 despite the protests of the Poland’s strong Catholic Church , a liberal abortion law was adopted. Main arguments for the defenders of such a law were that it would reduce the high maternal mortality rates due to unsafe abortions. The law decriminalized abortion for social reasons but did not actually recognize a woman’s right to abortion. Women who wished to obtain an abortion had to consult with two doctors, which constituted a significant barrier to the service (a similar bill was proposed in Romania by the Liberal Democrats Party deputies Marius Dugulescu and Sulfina Barbu in 2012 (BP58/13.03.2012) through which it would have established mandatory pre-abortion consultations in specialized pregnancy crisis centres and a period of reflection of five days. ).
Disclaimer: This paper will not discuss the argument of whether abortion should be legal or not. The pro-choice/pro-life debate is multi-faceted and I believe where you stand has a lot to do with your core fundamental beliefs. According to Dr. Jesudason, a nephrologist at the Royal Adelaide hospital, “abortion is arguably one of the most polarizing issues in American politics today” (Jesudason 1). I will however, be discussing the importance of accessible and affordable family planning and the impact it can have on a country and a woman’s life. Naturally, abortion is one aspect of Family Planning so it will be discussed in regards to my argument.
Her argument calls out pro-choicers by proving the statement made by so many pro-choicers wrong, “Favoring abortion rights isn’t about liking abortion. It’s a matter of supporting every woman’s right to choose for herself.” After quoting what most
Modern medicine utilizes medications and surgical procedures to induce abortion. The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court 's 7-2 decision on Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. America’s founding principles made no reference to rights of the unborn, as the bishops assert. It is dishonest to attempt to make the phrase in the Declaration of Independence about the “laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” mean what the pope means by natural law. It is also dishonest to assert that “all men are created equal” refers to male and female fetuses, when it didn’t even refer to slaves and women as having equal rights.
Those reasons vary in range from personal to universal and are generally based on the different life experiences and circumstances. Due to the vast differences, abortion is a conflict that will last as long as children are born. Although both sides regarding abortion have valid arguments, think about this: Is abortion really worth it? Do women really have the right to steal the life of a new living being? Fetus and future children are also human beings so it should be illegal to abort them, just as it is illegal to kill a murder.
However, each state can limit the use of abortion or create trigger laws .In approximately three-fourths of America, abortion is legal .A pro-choice advocate believes that abortion should be legalized and they support a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body. They assert that the government does not have the right to control a woman's decision to terminate the pregnancy. Therefore, abortion is one of the highest debated topics in the world either being pro-choice believing that a women has the right to make her own choices about her reproductive system or pro-life which is opposing abortion. Abortion is displeasing to God and disobeys his word. Abortion also causes the unborn baby to feel extreme pain and reduces the number of children to adopt for women who can not conceive.
In the article, Don’t Be Hatin by Trisha Liu, the so-called America the free seems to contradict itself. “The land of Freedom and Equality...is where oppression ends” (Liu, paragraph 2). Over the years, obtaining equal rights for the citizens that were a part of America has been common.“same-sex marriage...is the newest form of hate”(Liu, paragraph 2). America has equal rights for everyone but, for some odd reason, a lot of people decide to discriminate gays. “Same-sex couples don’t have the legal rights traditional couples do...That’s what discrimination is”(Liu, paragraph 3).
I agree with Brennan on issues such as freedom of the press and abortion. I don’t think that the press should be censored or stopped in anyway, because in my own opinion the press is the only way that people find out about major news stories and scandals. I am also a strong pro-choice advocate and believe that abortion should be legalized throughout the country and remain that way. A woman should be allowed to get an abortion is she wants to and I don’t find it right for people to want to take that right
The GOP support Second Amendment rights, the right to bear arms, to ensure that everyone has the ability to defend themselves not only from criminals, but also from enemies trying to attack. Abortion is not viewed favorably by most Republicans and neither is stem-cell research. The Republicans are also mainly against LGBT marriage rights but not just because they do not agree with the idea, but because they believe the decision should be left to the states. The Democrats are the complete opposite. Democrats try to limit the Second Amendment as much as possible.
Abortion became legal in America in 1973 due to a Supreme Court case Roe vs Wade and has continued to be a popular issue (“Roe v. Wade”). Abortion is a topic that many people have different views on and feel strongly about. It’s also a very heated topic within the government parties, with the disagreement of each one’s views. Democrats believe that women have the right to decide what they want to do with their body. They also believe that a fetus is not a human life, therefore, they have no individual rights.
