As both major political parties have shifted farther from the center, there has also been an increase of mutual apathy from its members. Individuals on both side believe it is more important to live in a place where viewpoints are shared rather than differ. Instead of hearing the other side, we have resorted to protecting one’s owns views, producing little positive results. UNC is an epitome of this culture. This semester, we have seen conservatives sensationalize a first-year seminar regarding September 11, a pro-abortion group erase chalk messages from their opposition and students interrupt a town hall event to demand actions ranging from understandable to unfathomable.
Forty-three years later, Roe v. Wade continues to be one of the most, if not the most, controversial decisions made by the United States Supreme Court. It is a very hot button issue in politics, with republicans usually disagreeing with the decision and democrats supporting it. Then there are many people in the middle, some who support abortion but want more restrictions such as how far into her pregnancy a woman can terminate or others who want abortion to be illegal, but want exceptions for certain cases, such as rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is in danger. Liberals says women should have complete control and say over their own body, and conservatives say that a fetus is a human life from the moment of conception, and therefore should
The Republican Party attacked gays, feminists, and abortion rights advocates. The Rise of Religious Fundamentalism became a major force in Republican politics, launching crusades against gay rights, secularism in public schools, and government aid to the arts. While Bill Clinton and the Democratic Party advocated both social liberalism and fiscal conservatism. This divide between the two parties alienated voters and increased the dived between the public. The Roller-Coaster Economy also contributed to the unease of the American
Thousands upon thousands of people resisted against Hitler and the Nazi Regime. The very earliest of rivals for Naziism were Communist, Socialists, and trade union leaders. Although, the most well known countries that resisted against Nazi Germany were Poland, Russia, U.S.A, and England. Many mainstream church hierarchies actually supported Hitler's quest for a 'new and better generation' but individual theologists were often against him. One theologist was known for arguing against Hitler, Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Ever since Donald Trump won the Republican Party nomination many popular conservative media figures and politicians have refused to endorse him some even saying they would vote for Hilary Clinton,the Democratic Party nomine, over Trump. Many speculate that it 's because of Trumps draconian immigration plan that includes building a wall and deporting 11 million people, or his infamous unconstitutional muslim ban,his multiple affairs and demacherous lifestyle, or the numerous offensive things he 's said and towards women and minorities. Many of my fellow liberals give these republicans credit for not supporting a monster like Trump and in their minds growing some kind of conscience. However, insane ideas,islamaphobia,debacherous
During Barack Obama’s two terms as president of the United States, he has taken many executive actions. A lot of these have been controversial and led to backlash that he was overstepping his bounds. Most recently, President Obama announced the measures he’s going to take in order to help fight gun violence. He has already received criticism from many in the GOP, who claim these actions are not justified and he is infringing on the liberty of many Americans. These actions are warranted, because the gun violence epidemic puts many Americans in danger, and President Obama has the right to take actions to protect the security of American citizens, so long as the actions do not infringe on their rights.
Many Christians who are against abortions, they blow up abortion clinics. Which results in double loss of life at the end of the day. Americans have seem to show a blind eye, which is honestly all the Media’s fault. Maybe since this country is predominantly Christian, but the bottom line is that terrorist attacks carried out by Muslims are shown by the Media as they are seen as an enemy. “Most of the terrorist activity in the U.S. in recent years has come not from Muslims, but from radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups.” Most people in America have never or barely heard about Christian terrorism.
In recent years, “requirements for photo identification have been hotly debated” (Drew A16). There are many different views of both political parties. While mostly Democrats are opposed to these laws, the main proponents who have been promoting voter-ID requirements are Republican state lawmakers claiming that they are needed to help prevent voter fraud. “Republicans say that large jumps in the immigrant population have also prompted them to act to safeguard elections” (Lizette A1). In other words, Republicans are claiming that fraudulent voting is an issue in the electoral process and having to provide further identification such as a photo ID is a solution.
According to the WHO, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions every year around the globe. The dictionary definition for abortion is ‘the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy’, and people usually very absolutist about their stances regarding this topic. The two sides of the argument are those who are pro-choice or pro-life. The pro-choice side argue that it is the free will of the parent/s to decide on how to handle the pregnancy as unplanned pregnancies could mean a detrimental life for both the parent/s and the baby as the parent/s may not have the resources to support and take care of the baby, or are not ready for such big change and responsibility. On the other hand, the pro-life side argue that life begins at conception
The ability for one to control when he or she will have children is something that most people take for granted in contemporary America. The advancement of the understanding of reproductive biology has led to remarkable technological innovations that have allowed men and women to prevent pregnancy through a variety of methods such as physical barriers, spermicides, and hormonal pills. However, the manner in which society has viewed these various forms of birth control has greatly evolved in the past two centuries. For much of the nineteenth century the majority of America adopted the conservative Christian doctrine that people should not meddle with their ability to have children. However, this changed remarkably throughout the twentieth century.
