The fear and misconception that vaccines are harmful puts not only children at risk, but the future population as well. Many people today might think of measles as a disease of the past because it’s no longer “around”; however, this does not mean that the measles disease is gone forever. A study was done in March of 2016, to evaluate the association between vaccine refusals and the measles epidemic. Scientist evaluated eighteen published measles studies which described 1,416 measles cases and more than half, 56.8%, had no history of measles vaccination. This proves that the phenomenon of vaccine refusal was associated with an increased risk for measles among people who refuse vaccines and among fully vaccinated individuals (Phadke et al.).
Some women believe abortions are giving them rights but having an abortion is not the only way. Adoption is a much better option over abortion. An unwanted or unplanned pregnancy can scare some. This leads many rushing into abortion looking for a “‘quick fix.’” The American Adoption Agency stated, “...for every 149 women who choose abortion, only one woman chooses adoption” (American Adoptions, Inc).
"In 2014, an estimated 926,240 abortions took place in the United States alone", (Guttmacher), which have nearly doubled into 2018. Now as abortion rates get higher and teens become more active, these rates will only get worst. But who say that abortions are bad, or even wrong? Over the years of being a Christian we all hear having sex before marriage is a sin and have adopting a baby is nearly death to for you or someone around you. Growing up Christians around me always tried to skew my thought to make adoption a reference of hell.
So why not have the kid and give it away for adoption. Abortion, a termination of human pregnancy. Most often performed during the first 28 weeks of the pregnancy. Abortion is common in the United States. 3 out of 10 women in the U.S. have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old.
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
These kinds of abortions led to some complications. She believed that the only way to legalize birth control was to break the law (The Pill). After witnessing the pain that the women went through, Sanger stated in her interview with Mike Wallace, while she was working as a nurse in New York City, she was asked by many to come up with some kind of contraceptive to prevent them from getting pregnant. In 1916, she opened up the first birth control clinic illegally in the United States and was arrested eight times. (Soriano).
However, these items are still not recommended to be used in baby beds. Crib bumper danger bigger, more harmful than believed in past According to one of the professors of the study, the crib bumper danger is much higher and more dangerous than was ever believed in the past. Senior author Bradley T. Thach, MD, says in all the reported deaths the babies would not have died if their cribs had been empty of everything except for the child. The majority of the babies were said to have had their noses and mouths covered by the bumpers or somehow got wedged between the bumper and the mattress.
Considering the political issues today same-sex marriage controversy serves to be significant as it has not been able to reach its height at the national level. As only 36 states out of 50 legally approve of same-sex marriage (Fausset and Blinder, The NewYork Times.com). Amending the Constitution for same-sex marriage serves to be a huge controversy and a difficult process due to many opinions present within the political and social circuit. Another reason many citizens do not support the idea of same-sex marriage is due to traditional social beliefs and morals. For example, many Americans oppose the idea of same-sex marriage on religious grounds.
The case of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v Casey marks an era where the U.S. Supreme Court walks away from the idea of neutral views between childbirth and abortion because the Supreme Court rules that information in favor childbirth may be given to the mother. However, the courts have not encourage information in favor of abortion. Genetic testing and the field of genetic or abortion counseling is growing. Research shows that there is a correlation between genetic testing and abortion but there has been little research done to analyze the impact of counselors on mothers’ decision to abort. An article by Susan Markens found that in most cases genetic counselors attempt to remain neutral in presenting patient with the data available on risks and benefits.

Most of the countries have declared commercial surrogacy as void; however few countries treat it as legal. In older times the reason why a wife was so concerned about bearing children lied in the inheritance of the wife's possessions .
Around 90% of abortions in the UK are carried out in the first trimester, (before 12 weeks of pregnancy), when the fetus is about the same size as a lime and weighs less than 14 grams. Only about 1 in 1,000 are performed in the last trimester, usually for medical reasons. Most of the gruesome images of aborted fetuses that are presented by pro-life groups are exaggerated and misleading. The fetus that is growing inside the the mother’s womb isn 't considered a human being. It can’t survive alone without the nutrients from the mother, therefore it is not yet a person.
However, there is one war that is one of the most horrible and it has gone unnoticed. The topic of abortion has been going on for decades now, but most Americans do not recognize that it is truly a war, right here in our country. This war has claimed the lives of over 60 million in the past forty-two years (CDC). The war of abortion is what has been unnoticed for a while now. This misfortune is as shocking as anything terrorists can perpetrate, because it hits at the core of humanity and our country.
1.Abortion is a very controversial subject in the world. In the book, Freakonomics, the authors discuss about a positive effect that abortion had on society. The authors also discussed how many women, usually under the same poor circumstance, wanted an abortion and if they were denied the chance at abortion they would resent the baby. The article “How China 's One-Child Policy Led To Forced Abortions, 30 Million Bachelors” by npr, talks about a different perspective on abortion. The article talked about the negative effect that their 35-year-old "one-child" policy had on their country.
Under the law, suspicious miscarriages, stillbirths and infants with birth defects are grounds for possible criminal assault charges carrying a prison sentences of up to 15 years. Tennessee, the first to state with such a law, has a high number of babies born with drugs in their systems. Supporters believe that threat of jail will force mothers into treatment. Women who stick with drug addiction programs will not be charged. Critics say the measure will harm babies by making pregnant women afraid to seek medical care and may lead to more abortions
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.
