The United States has for quite to long inflicted handicap on low-income women seeking to get an abortion. We have women that are already struggling financially, adding to that they have to purchase for safe legal care. The U.S. houses of representatives passed the Hyde Amendment since 1979 which bans federal funds for abortion. Indeed, Americans women that are insured through public health insurance programs such as Medicaid and Tricare (for military families) cannot access to abortion care. Therefore, medicaid would not offer abortion even when there is risk to the woman’s health and under doctor’s recommendation.
Mary’s family should not authorize a hip replacement in her case because it seems as though her quality of life is detreating and that would only make her health worse before it gets better. She would need someone on watch 24/7 to make sure she does not hurt herself. But, if her family is willing to take on the added stress and risk in her condition then it is up to them, to make the decision. Mary is in no shape to make logical decisions on her own and if the family has just given up than the choice is left up to the medical staff and judge. But, on the flip side the family should be obligated to come together to help their mother no matter how hard it is to side by and watch the process take place.
The last way people treat is by limiting the thing that is said to people with mental illness. In Amy Bloom’s “Silver Water”, She demonstrates the idea that people with mental illness are treated and looked at different by most normal people; Once Rose was diagnosed with her mental illness her family acted different to her as she sent to many doctors who wouldn 't help her with this illness. In the beginning of the “Silver Water” the family learn that Rose has a mental illness and her parents have to make a decision to do with her. Her father who is a psychiatrist didn 't want to sent her away because he thought that there was nothing wrong with her but her mother see that there is something wrong with Rose. Rose’s parents get in the huge argument about what is happening to Rose but her father is in full denial “”She is going off” “What is that your professional Opinion?...I 'm sorry I didn 't mean to snap on you…have you talked to her””(1).
• Women will die of unsafe abortions if we make it illegal. Pro-choicers believe that if abortion is made illegal women will be pushed to perform unsafe abortions and they will die. Abortion being illegal means that women cannot go to a registered nurse or doctor to perform an abortion unless they agree to do it illegal and because of this woman will be pushed to come up with different home remedies to perform abortion. These home remedies can then kill women. In the world that we are living today women are finding all different remedies and doing different practices to abort a baby and some, maybe most are dangerous ways.
A woman has a basic right to make up her own mind about choices of pregnancy or abortion, and her right to bodily integrity prevails any potential rights that the fetus may or may not have (Baird & Rosenbaum 2001). In terms of personhood, a fetus is not aware of self, does not think, and is dependent on the mother. Therefore, the rights of the fetus cannot morally infringe on the choice that the mother has
Both of these sides argue whether or whether not the fetus is a person on not when it comes to aborting a child. • 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 Supreme court came to a decision that they would keep the law active. Like many, I do not support the legalization of abortions. I believe that ALL lives are precious, and no life should be terminated, simply because they are an inconvenience to the mother. Dealing with going through an abortion because of medical purposes and victims of rape, is a different story. But when a woman thinks her life is more precious, and is too selfish to give the HUMAN growing inside of her, depending on her to nourish it, then that is a feminist issue, I cannot stand behind.
Those who are against women who feed in public argue that it is indecent exposure. An anonymous user on debate.org voted no when the question “should women breastfeed in public was brought up. “I agree that breastfeeding is natural, however it is indecent exposure. A woman walking around with an exposed chest is not something parents want their children to be exposed to, placing a baby in the equation does not change the fact that the woman is still exposing herself to the public” (debate.org). This would be a great point in the argument, if the government did not exempt breastfeeding women from this law.
Today, many laws are trying to limit parental rights in the medical decision making of their teens. What would happen if the child makes the wrong decision? Parents have full on custody and are financially responsible for their child until the child is eighteen. Dr. Stacey Berg (2015), a professor of Pediatrics and medical ethics at Baylor College of Medicine, declared that “Not much happens right when you turn 18, but in the eyes of the law you 're allowed to make really bad choices for yourself if you want to"(Leonard, p.1). Teen are not capable in making such decisions on health.
An abortion should never be an option in any case because it’s considered as murder, it causes pain to the person and baby during and after the procedure, and there are other choices to choose from including adoption. 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.
