In her speech, “The Morality of Birth Control”, it appealed to the audience because she was able to appeal to their emotions. From this, she was able to tell the audience to believe what they think is the best. She also attacks the people who are against birth control because it does not affect them and they do not understand what the use it is for.

The purpose of birth control is because of women’s morality and they believe that they should be educated first to prevent mishaps and other things that can be prevented.

Her intention of writing this song may have been to give hope of a happy ending to her audience but, as most people know, Romeo and Juliet don’t get a happy ending. Using the Romeo and Juliet’s story as an example to tell her own may have been effective in that way but it strayed from the themes of freewill and its consequences that are so important in the original story.

Ms. Mosby even apologized on behalf of her generation for feeding us false ideas about what sort of friendships will make us happy in life. However, I take issue with Ms. Mosby’s approach to beginning relationships, and her explanations about how people form new relationships after experiencing hard time. While it is true that a friend should always be willing to listen and support a person in need, it would be putting far too much pressure on
It's better to be an individual than act like everyone else. This was proven by Jerry Spinelli in the novel Stargirl. Stargirl was an individual who everyone thought was weird. She did whatever she felt like instead of acting like everyone else. She didn't care what other people think about her.
