Postpartum Depression Postpartum depression refers to a kind of depression that some women experience after childbirth (Miller762–5). Postpartum depression is described as a chronic and debilitating psychological condition that is highly characterized with reduced quality life, heavy burden in regard to its treatment and management, and increased risks to a myriad of life-threatening adverse events and complications (Dennis & Dowswell). This disorder in the last years has gained more attention, more and more women suffer. This instant is the most important and beautiful that takes place in the life of a person, but also the most dramatic, so we must respect the times, fears and beliefs of the future mother, so you can help more in this
Legally, there have been split views as to whether taxpayer dollars should go to Planned Parenthood and its overall funding in government. On one hand, abortion is a controversial topic that not everyone agrees with. The idea of taxpayers paying to fund an organization that supports this is unacceptable to many pro-lifers. In January of 2016, “…the U.S House of Representatives voted 240 to 181 in favor of defunding abortion giant Planned Parenthood” (Freiburger). The reconciliation bill, which will end taxpayer dollars going into Planned Parenthood, is a large step for pro-lifers.
Today, abortion still one of the most controversial topics in our communities, some with the Idea that it's wrong (pro-life) and others that is totally okay that women should have control over their body (pro-choice). Even though, it became legal in 1973, there are a big amount of people opposing abortion as a moral wrong. In this paper I would like to talk about three different theories on abortion. First, the structural functionalist, second the conflict perspective theory and third the symbolic Interaction theory. A structural-functional approach that it should be possible for a pregnant woman to obtain a legal abortion in specific circumstances.
Out of the 2.5 million people who visit Planned Parenthood clinics a year, the majority are low-income women who have no other alternative. Therefore, defunding Planned Parenthood would only prevent patients, who are already struggling financially, from receiving preventative care. Politicians in congress only want to shut down these health centers because they offer access to safe and legal abortions, without considering the people it would affect the most. Politicians are not considerate of the struggle some people deal with to pay for their health care because they do not deal with the same hardships of everyday people like
If a woman did not choose to engage in sexual activity in the first place, why should she have to carry to term a child that was the result of her forced union? Rape and incest are horrific wrongs. A woman, violated in a sexual assault should be surrounded by love and support. Women are often expected to be inferior to men and to the government. In the grand scheme of things, abortion is a woman’s choice.
Something that had the media go crazy in Texas is that the federal court is upholding the texas law that is putting mostly all of the state 's abortion clinics at risk of shutting down. In July 1st most of the clinics needed to be shut down and the nearest abortion provider is miles away. Some interest group taking having an opinion in the idea of abortion is the “anti-abortion group they had targeted key congressional races across the country and provided financial support for Republican presidential candidates. political spending from anti-abortion groups has increased markedly since the 2008 cycle” (OpenSecrets 1). There was also a bill passed to further “restrict the use of federal funds in abortion procedures” (OpenSecrets 1).
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.
Many people have opposing views whether abortion is a moral right that should be permissible. Even though that a life is being “taken away” and not giving it a chance to experience said life, the right to life argument is hypocritical and contradicts its own moral beliefs. In this essay, I will first explain what the right to life argument is against abortion, why Judith Jarvis Thomson thinks it fails and then will give my explanation why Thomson’s argument succeeds that abortion is morally permissible even if the fetus has a right to life. I will also consider objections and show why they fail. The right to life argument believes that abortion is morally wrong because of the simple fact that a life is literally being taken away by force—that it is equivalent to murder.
Robert Franklin, author of the article “Children Need Both Parents, Even after Divorce” , implies, “single mothers with children living with them are far more likely to live in poverty than is any other segment of society”. Now this may be true for single mothers who do not have a good career, but it is not true for all of them. Some mothers may have an excellent career and are paid very well. In this case, this stereotype is false, because this mother would have a lot of money and they would not have to live in poverty. Conclusively, a mother can be the only parent to a child, just because she is
For example, many pro life people would say that if a woman doesn’t want the responsibility of raising a child, they should just put it up for adoption (1). This is not necessarily a fair accusation considering that not all women who want an abortion want it because they don’t want the responsibility. Having a child can be extremely expensive, even if you are not planning to keep the child. While pregnant, women have to make multiple trips to the doctor to make sure their pregnancy is going well. Also, the hospital bill for giving birth can be in the thousands of dollars by itself (1).
