A big outcry has been heard from people as the Trump Administration decided to rollback the requirement that birth control coverage is mandated by employer-provided health insurances.Without this mandate, an employer has the choice to deny any birth control insurance coverage to women of their workforce based solely on their religious and moral beliefs. This affects thousands of women that rely on their company’s health insurance plan to provide a low-cost method to receiving birth control. Although this may conflict with the employer’s beliefs and moral system, women also use birth control for many other purposes: to control periods, acne, or even reducing the symptoms of serious health issues such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The argument against the
America has been set on ideals created centuries ago; focusing on freedom and fighting for the rights of many. However these ideals once used to protect the nation are being misinterpreted by far too many people today. Guns have always played a big role in the lives of Americans, and many believe it is a necessity and all should have the right to own one. What they are unaware of are the average 13,000 gun homicides that take place within a year. Guns are slowly but surely becoming the leading cause of death in America.
One major example of a conflict caused by religion is when Creon creates religious laws to act against many of antigone 's beliefs and not bury Antigone 's brother. Due to this action this conflict remains for a majority of the play and sparks up a huge argument. Now that people are defending
The book I Am Malala is about a young girl who is at odds with the Taliban because she disagrees with their extreme views of the Islamic religion and stands up for women’s rights, education most specifically. Malala shows her need for control over her life from the very beginning when she begins her fight for education. A lot of people in the Islamic religion believe that women should never be seen with a male other than their relative. The Taliban despised the idea of women getting an education, but Malala and many others fought back. Many people, her father being the biggest advocate, believed that “lack of education was the root of all Pakistan’s problems” (page 41).
Many were persecuted for even saying something that does not correspond to their beliefs. As well as, they were also killed because the ruler of that country didn’t like that type of religion or want total control of their citizens.” Freedom of religion is severely restricted in Muslim countries”(New world Encyclopedia, 2017). Freedom of Religion is decreases, which means that there are countries that oppose Freedom of Religion. “ China and Vietnam, although they don’t govern the economy they still oppose religion”( Reese, 2015). “ Freedom of Religion is a human right that needs greater respect around the world” ( Reese, 2015).
One being the way the media would make the refugees look. The media would make people scared that their states would become Muslim states and would overtake their native population. These were not logical fears. Even if every single refugee was taken in and every single refugee was Muslim, the Islam community would only then be about four to five percent of the population. These fears came also with the communities thinking about terrorism.
The inability to express oneself have caused an outrage to feminist as they urged Muslim women to redefine their way of life by questioning the need of wearing Hijab and to not be victims of masculine dominance. Theodore Gabriel (2011, p. 25) outlined “the covering of the head, Hijab, and the covering of face, Niqab, are seen by many as demonstrations of oppression.” This shows that the act of veiling promoted through religious beliefs interfere in the possession of one’s body and her rights to make decisions for her own self. By taking the rights of someone, it is perceived for him/her to be of an unequal status as compared to their peers.
The adoption of religious, moral codes in societies can lead to abuse of these codes through hypocrisy. People living in a society that enforces religious, moral codes will manage to find a way around the codes and do what they want regardless. Not only this, but people can abuse the codes by claiming to uphold them and creating an enemy out of anyone who doesn’t, meanwhile they aren’t really upholding the code. Proof of this reasoning has existed since 1692, when the Salem Witch Trials were taking place, and has continued through history to exist in modern day. Adopting religious codes can leave for no “wiggle room” in morally fuzzy areas - like accusations of witchcraft.
Because of the social stigma of not being able to keep a well-managed marriage within a religious community, many women feel it is their responsibility to hide the abuse to save the marriage. Part of this problem is, “some Christian and Jewish denominations have drawn on the various Biblical references and other cultural sources to argue that wives have a duty to maintain their marriages at all costs” (Pyles, 2007, p 282). This outlook also influenced my decision to stay in the abusive marriage as it was my religious obligation to stay married for divorce was a failure that would be carried upon the woman’s shoulders. The text from Conley (2017, p 477-480) titled Flat Broke with Children, illustrates the difficulty that women can face in finding dependency upon a marriage to financially survive and will even stay in an abusive relationship for financial support. This was the situation I found myself in (without children) although I did not realize how many other women in society were struggling with the same situation.
People often think that parents have a basic human right to have the freedom to determine the number and spacing of their children. Government intervention is also unfavorable due to the fact that the one-child policy is proving to disproportionately harm the women in that country. The very reason that the government is constantly encouraging and enforcing abortion, emotionally damages the women. Thus, this shows that by implementing the One-Child policy, it not only abuses human rights but also emotionally damages women who are forced to
These laws allow people to legally discriminate and cover it with the excuse that it violates a person’s beliefs. People are trying to use their religion, something the nation has long grown out of as a reason to justify their poor treatment of others. Even though people are facing modern issues with an immature approach, abuse of the RFRA laws approach the point where it can be used to take away a person’s equality because he or she is too different from most people. Eventually, this will begin to violate the Constitution because it will put the people who constantly abuse the law above the people they use it against. If this law is used excessively, there is a high chance that the nation will return to its dark period of discrimination and will jeopardize people’s equality.
Most immigrants will try again after their fourth try over and over again. Another reason why I agree is that all the dangers that head their way can have them go back and do it again. This trip is the cause of many deaths, immigrants try to avoid such areas and officers. Children often get lost or killed, if they are lucky they make it. Nearly 11.6 million immigrants come to the U.S. Officers count is that 20% of immigrants get caught trying to cross the border.
Ha’s Refugee Experience “In 2013 there were 41.3 million refugees living in the United States”. War affects many aspects of our world, such as living spaces, food resources, and the economy. One way to fix the problem, living spaces, is to have refugees immigrate over to a safe country. Ha’s refugee experience is relatable to other refugee’s experiences because refugees flee because of war, they have a difficult time fitting in, and they share many of the same emotions. Ha and other refugees flee because of war.
All freedoms should have a restriction somewhere, and this limitation should happen when one breaks a law for the purpose of a religion. Americans should have their freedoms, but safety is even more important. Harming others for the purpose of a religion is a threat to society, and can bring down the nation. It is not fair for the purpose of people to break the law just because of a religious belief, while other people get punished for breaking the law. The first amendment is a controversial topic that still gets debated today.
Which according to law, the government must not in any way favor one religion over another, moreover in this case the displays clearly violated the Establishment Clause because they were presented with texts-scriptures from the Bible involving in a particular promotion of Christian religion. As religion plays a big part of a politics, not just in the United States, but also in other countries. A chosen religion can severely impact citizens in negative ways. For that, some countries grow and some countries can go into destruction. Having this in mind religious freedom is one of the main reasons people come to America.
