In fact, “if you remove maternity services, women are not more expensive to insure than men are—they simply use healthcare differently,” as pointed out by Wharton. Although women have higher costs such as childbirth, these bills eventually become fairly equivalent. This is because men become more expensive as they get older since they are more susceptible to having heart attacks, lung and liver cancer. Nonetheless, women still had to bear higher costs, as if being born as a girl came with an exorbitant price tag. 28% of women had problems with paying medical charges, whereas only 19% of men had these issues before Obamacare was implemented, as stated by The Atlantic.
Not only would their access to affordable birth control be cut off, but also their access to STI testing and treatments, and their access to life-saving cervical and breast cancer
Making abortion illegal could be useful to control how many abortions people are allowed to receive. With putting a limit on how many abortions people are allowed to get, the government has more control over how many fetuses are dying due to random and useless
Trump wants to cut back on free birth control because it 's more money for the government to pay if they continue to give it out. (Fox). The goal of cutting back on free birth control is to protect every person 's right of religious freedom. (Fox). When pregnant, nearly half of pregnancies turn out to be unplanned or abortions.
The risks of egg donation are portrayed in a very drastic way. I am not saying the writers should avoid reporting on the risks, but I do believe the articles are written a way that scares readers away from the thought of egg donation. Egg donation is not really a topic you find on the front page of a news website. You need to search for it directly if you want some more information. Since the politics of women’s healthcare was a major point of concern last year, people were probably more likely to read those topics since they received more coverage.
Instead of having an abortion, women can choose a more beneficial option, such as giving the baby up for adoption. When women decide to get an abortion, they don’t think about adoption because of the long process, even though it can help other families who can’t have children. For example “It’s logical that anti-abortion organizations seeking to prevent abortions and promote traditional family structures would aggressively promote adoption, but this connection is often overlooked…”(Joyce). Many women that get pregnant with an unwanted child usually look into having an abortion first rather than going through the long process of pregnancy and giving the baby up for adoption. Furthermore, “In President Obama 's speech… he suggested that one solution to lowering abortion rates is making abortion more available”(Joyce).
• Pro-choice argues: o The fetus is not a human until after the first trimester o Cases like rape or incest should be allowed for abortion o Abortion can take a toll on a person life and should be available because some parents are not financially stable or mentally prepared for a child to come in their life. • Pro-life argues: o The fetus is a human as soon as it’s conceived o Adoption could be an alternate for abortion so no life is taken and the child goes to a family that will love and take care of it. o Tax dollars shouldn’t be used to pay for abortions if all citizens don’t support or have the same views on
The Opioid ban is where doctors are not able to prescribe patients their prescription drugs of opioids that they need. Opioids should be given to all those in need because many opioid alternatives are lest effective. Such as the alternative of therapy, and alternative medicines witch can potentially make matters worse for them. The opioid ban should not be administered due to resulting issues that could occur. To introduce this topic, I will talk about what opioids are, why the opioid ban is an issue for those who use them, and the effectiveness of the governments’ and doctors ‘recommended alternatives.
“I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species we've fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don't believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we've made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred.” - Caitlin Moran Abortion does what contraception does not necessarily do: it works. Let the abortion be as it is, it is the mother’s body and she can abort it as she wishes.
Many people have opposing views whether abortion is a moral right that should be permissible. Even though that a life is being “taken away” and not giving it a chance to experience said life, the right to life argument is hypocritical and contradicts its own moral beliefs. In this essay, I will first explain what the right to life argument is against abortion, why Judith Jarvis Thomson thinks it fails and then will give my explanation why Thomson’s argument succeeds that abortion is morally permissible even if the fetus has a right to life. I will also consider objections and show why they fail.
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.
The taking of life, the extermination of a sack of cells: abortions, no matter what you side on when you hear “Planned Parenthood,” you think abortions. There's a wide misconception that Planned Parenthood does mostly abortion services; and with the Pro choice/ Pro life people debating on defunding them or not this is why we shouldn't defund pph. 3% of Planned Parenthood services are abortions, Contrary to popular myth. The other 97% is for other health related services. Such as Ob/Gyn visits, birth control, mammograms, STD tests, health education programs, diabetes and anemia screenings, physical exams and much more.
Overview In 2005, Susan G. Komen partnered with Planned Parenthood to begin funding for breast cancer screenings and health services. Komen provided roughly $580,000 in grants in 2010 and $680,000 in 2011 to the non-profit (Crisco, 2013). In 2011, Komen sought to end its funding to Planned Parenthood and was met with outcry by the public, and was faced with a public relations crisis.
Availability of health care to poor women, and the need for contraceptives to prevent pregnancies rather than need abortions. But if Planned Parenthood wants to keep its funding and continue to provide abortions then it has to separate the two services, and provide evidence federal funding isn't going towards abortions. I believe abortion should be legal, but I also believe people who don't believe in it shouldn't have to pay for
