No one had to ask could everything about Henrietta be released, but it was released without incident. But it took 20+ years for the information about Henritetta’s cells. It was still illegal for the doctors to take her cells and have their way with them, without her consent. These doctors and scientist did not really care about Henrietta because she was a colored women. Things would have a lot different if Henrietta was a white women with cancer.
However, in 1973, Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade activated a strong anti-feminist movement that opposed the goal of feminists who supported abortion rights and the ERA. It was led by Phyllis Schlafly. Feminist groups countered with national economic boycotts against states that had not ratified the ERA. Despite the activism of the opposition groups such as pro-ERA women’s groups which sponsored a large mass march on Washington to re-new efforts to pass the amendment. However, only five more states ratified by 1977 and anti-ERA forces successfully persuaded some states that ratified the amendment to vote to rescind their ratification.
Like Thomas-Rasset, Tenenbaum decided to fight against the lawsuit in Supreme Court. 2. Discuss the legal consequences of each particular case. Brianna LaHara and her mother settled with the RIAA for a $2,000 fee and the promise that LaHara would apologize.

Beginning in the 1910’s Margaret Sanger embarked on her legacy of reforming rights for women 's contraception by starting the birth control movement in the U.S. Before her reforms many state and federal acts outlawed the use of contraceptives and any talk of contraceptive care through and mail was forbidden by the Comstock Law. Woman who had been victims of Rape or insest did not have a safe place to receive care to prevent unwanted pregnancies, instead these victims were looked down upon and demoralized in society. In the late 19th century Sanger started publishing on magazines and creating her own articles supporting the use of contraception. Soon after Sangers publishings were viewed by the public the Justice Department indicted her for
Case or Issue Overview A woman’s body was discovered floating in the pool located in the apartment building she owned and lived in. Police questioned all of the current tenants. All of them were cleared of suspicion except for Ella Rogers, a 23-year-old publicist. After further investigation, police found some evidence that contradicted her alibi. During the re-interview process, Ella claimed that the reason she lied at the first interview was due to the fact that she was having an affair with one of her clients and did not want this to be found out.
Was the Revolution Really Revolutionary? The Revolutionary War was truly, not revolutionary because the women did not get the rights they deserved until over 100 years later, slavery was not abolished and African Americans did not get rights until 1865 and 1965 respectively, and people who were poor had no more legislative representation after the “Revolution” that they did prior to this war. As seen in Document 7, during the Revolutionary War, Abigail Adams wrote a letter to her husband, John Adams, who had much political power and money asking him to “Remember the ladies” and be “more generous and favorable” to them. She also noted that the women “have no voice or representation” in the colonies and that it needs to change. This was in 1776.
There were many ethical issue and ethical theories that took place as well. After reading this story, I noticed many ethical issues that were brought up. The first issue is informed consent. Henrietta and her family did not give consent to take her cells and sell them. They never signed any forms or verbally explained
If you do some simple math the only states that needed to approve it were the ones who didn’t offer resistance to the Articles and wanted a new government. Another silly thing all the founding fathers missed in the Articles is that the continental congress couldn’t enforce any laws. Which in so many words meant that congress could make all the laws they wanted but none of the states had to follow it due to the state government having much more power than the federal government. All the flaws in the Articles in confederation had made many things happen such as Shay’s rebellion and of course the adaptation of our new government which took ten months for the first nine states to ratify the rest of course came one by
But no evidence whatsoever if she is real or fake. After this research I’m more calm than I was when I stop getting scared of her. Now I know there is no evidence she is real and she is only a myth. Perhaps if I would have done research about la Llorona when I was scared of her being real, I would not have thought the same. I would have had a totally different perspective about her and I would have not carried her panic for so many

In Coleman v. Brown (1990), the court ordered a reduction in California’s prison population to provide California Realignment: Assembly Bill (AB) 109 8 constitutional levels of medical and mental health care, demonstrating the court’s ability to generate a comprehensive remedial solution to prison overcrowding (Harvard Law Review, 2009). “The California governor and corrections officials have been sued by California prisoners for violating their rights under the Eighth Amendment 's Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause for being deprived of adequate health care” (Spector, 2010, p. 1). The safe operation of a prison is impossible with severe overcrowding (Spector, 2010). In a similar case filed approximately a decade later in Plata v. Brown (2001), the court ruled that the CDCR failed to provide adequate medical services and consequently violated the Eight Amendment (Rogan, 2012). The outcomes of these cases led to a court-ordered reduction in overcrowding, and because of the poor level and standards of prisoner healthcare, the California prison system was forced to change prisoners’ housing.

When it comes to making claims it is hard unless there is enough information that can prove that the complainant was actually discriminated against because they were a man or woman. Mary can bring a claim for gender discrimination against her company because she has determined that because she is a woman that she makes thousands of dollars less than her male counterparts. There has been no reason given to why Mary makes that much less than her male counterparts. The issue with this scenario is that we don’t know if the organization that Mary works for uses the seniority, merit, or other pay systems. Most of the male counterparts could have received merit pay based off of their performance and evaluations throughout the last five years.
In October 1915 she returned to the U.S and continued to advocate for women 's rights to birth control. Sanger opened the first birth control clinic but it only stayed open for nine days.

These actions did not go by what was established by an earlier, similar case, and by performing the scan with no warrant, the government did not allow DLK to conduct private activities in his own home. Although some argue that the government’s actions were acceptable because they only scanned what was visible to the public, they still used a device not readily available to the public to see inside DLK’s home. The government’s actions were unacceptable, and a warrant should have been obtained prior to performing the search in order to make it
