An online article written by doctors Lisa Haddad and Nawal Nour states, “Some 68,000 women die of unsafe abortion annually, making it one of the leading causes of maternal mortality (13%). Of the women who survive unsafe abortion, 5 million will suffer long-term health complications” (“Unsafe Abortion: Unnecessary Maternal Mortality” ). Death and long term injury from unsafe abortions can be prevented, if those who do not want or cannot afford to have children have methods to prevent pregnancy from even happening. These deaths and injuries are important, because they are extremely preventable, and the fact that prevention is not openly distributed to the public is an injustice. The United Nations’ Declaration of
The government of Pakistan in response to the growing rate of the religious and sectarian violence and the tension which is created for the minorities. In this regard, the government has established the National Commission for the minorities in order to protect their rights and to show equal status to the minorities compare to the one who is in the majority in the country.

The Civil Rights Movement in America lasted during the 1950s and 1960s. It was a time in which oppressed African Americans demanded change in society, both socially and legally. Some sacrificed most of what they had in order to make their point clear; they were jailed, assaulted, and even killed by the government that was supposed to protect them. Nonetheless, their protests proved to be powerful because some laws and Supreme Court decisions were in their favor. This includes the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas case ruling, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965; all of which helped put an end to segregation in the country.
Everyone in America deserves civil rights. But, about 50 years ago, not everyone was treated with the respect they deserved. If most people in America had believed in civil rights, then the horrible crimes of this era would not have been committed. The 16th Street Birmingham Bombing was one of these horrid incidents. The Birmingham Bombings showed Americans that segregation is wrong and it needs to come to an end by all means necesary.
Over 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. They were shot, gassed, hung, and much more. The Jews died innocent and were killed just because they were Jews. It is important that people remember all of the Holocaust and not just some of it. The Devil’s Arithmetic written by Jane Yolen more aptly delivers the message of remembering than Donna Deitches version through the scene of boxcars, the conditions of the camp, and dehumanization.
Promoting Human Rights "We declare that human rights are all for all of us, all the time: whoever we are and wherever we are from; no matter our class, our opinions, our sexual orientation," quoted from United Nation's High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein. Indeed, human rights are all for us, involved in every action you make that includes someone who differs from you. Human rights, is not for just one race, nor for the rich. Though you might not realize it, even that near discriminatory act that you did can affect someone, even if it does not affect you. Human rights have an important role to each person's life; therefore, human rights should be protected and promoted by the people in their society, by embracing their
In our region, Islam has an old history, and 90% of citizens are Muslim, so our culture was effected by nearby countries, which are mostly Islamic countries. We all know that each person’s thinking is different from the other person, so everybody may not follow the rules of Islam, and even they may not believe in God. Islam has hundreds of rules, but some are restrictive and result in extremism, such as cutting hand of the person who steals something. Everybody make a mistake, and no one is a perfect person, so when a person make a mistake that person should be punished not cutting his hand because it results in disorder of society and it may also result in civil
Human rights are rights ingrained to all the individuals, whatever our citizenship, place of residence, sex, national or racial origin, cast, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally eligible to our human rights without favoritism. These rights are all interconnected, interdependent and inseparable. The intention of human rights expanded quickly to India, Greece and at last Rome. The most significant progress since then have included: 1215: The Magna Carta—gave people new rights and made the king subject to the law.
Another issue is human rights and peace building in Tibet. The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) defined that human rights are rights, which are equally entitled for all people in the world, no matter nationality, race or ethnicity, sex, religion, cultures or any other status. Despite the clear definition, there are a great number of human rights violations occurred in Tibet by the authority as previously noted about gender-based violence. Even though China ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (United Nations, 1948), they use any means to attain their aims or to gain their profits. Their heart-less rationalism has no mercy for anything, no matter historical heritages, sense of dignity nor human life.
