Approximately 1.3 million unplanned pregnancies end in abortion every year. There are several reasons women choose to have abortions such as fear of having or raising a child, rape, or not having enough money. But whatever the situation, it is the individual woman’s decision. If an abortion is denied, the women would have the child in unsafe living conditions and the child would not get everything he/she needs to live a good life. First Trimester Abortions should not be viewed negatively because a woman's body is her own, circumstances are always different, and a woman has individual rights.
The Dilemma An ethical dilemma is a situation in which no solution is entirely satisfactory to either party (Foundations of nursing care, 2004). The historical 1973 Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade ruled in favor of the plaintiff, considering abortion an essential right granted to women under the Constitution of the United States (McBride, 2006). Jane Roe was a woman that was pregnant who wanted to obtain an abortion. She was prosecuted on behalf of women in a similar situation that wanted to avoid the implementation of Texas laws banning all abortions except those deemed necessary to save the life of the mother. The court decided in her favor that a woman’s right to abortion fell within the right to privacy, and was protected by the fourteenth amendment (McBride, 2006).
As a country we all need to agree that under certain cases abortion should be considered, but other than that it’s homicide. An unborn baby should have the same opportunity to experience life as we all do every day. The majority of Abortions is caused by a woman wanting to postpone childbearing, simply
Persons who are the victims of sexual harassment may sue under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C.A. § 2000e et seq. ), which prohibits sex discrimination in the workplace. The federal courts did not recognize sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination until the 1970s, because the problem originally was perceived as isolated incidents of flirtation in the workplace. Employers are now aware that the victims of workplace sexual harassment can sue them.
There are several laws covered under the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Process. To begin with, you have Title VII which was put in place in order to protect the women and minorities of the workforce. Furthermore, another law that is protected in the guidelines is the Equal Employment Opportunity Act also known as Affirmative Action, which was set in place to aid in any inequalities that might be present in the hiring and promotion process. With the comments made by the managers there are blatant inequalities placed for women who aspire in having this position. Some other laws that are not addressed under this guideline, but the managers should be aware of is the Age Discrimination and Employment Act and the American with Disabilities Act.
Describe two equal employment opportunity laws. How does your current or previous workplace comply with these laws? Provide examples. The pregnancy discrimination act states, "This law amended Title VII to make it illegal to discriminate against a woman because of pregnancy, childbirth, or a medical condition related to pregnancy or childbirth. The law also makes it illegal to retaliate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit."
Crystal Chambers vs. Girls Club of Omaha, Nebraska Crystal Chambers can fight her discharge by challenging the Girls Club of Omaha on grounds of sexual and racial discrimination. The case stated that a Negative Role Model Policy was put in place because other girls had gotten pregnant. The theory she should use would be Discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibits the refusal or failure to hire any individual, the discharge of any individual, or the discrimination against any individual with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of that individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
Legal Framework of Diversity Legal Framework of Diversity Imagine living the experience of being fired from a job because of pregnancy. Imagine the financial struggle this would cause. A person should assert civil rights if he or she is unlawfully terminated. The only way to promote changes and diminish discrimination is by coming forward and allowing the law to handle the situation. The Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC) dedicates time to defending discrimination against employees.
Women Right to Choose Who’s right is it to choose whether or not a child is aborted? It is the woman’s body, but the child is both the man and woman’s offspring. The issue of woman’s right is one thing that should be considered. In the event that the mother was raped, if she is (for example) a 10 yr. old child or if by having the baby it would put the mother’s life in danger, then there is something that needs to be done. Forcing a woman to carry the child of a rapist simply because one believes that abortion is wrong would be infringing in on the rights of the mother.
The right’s each of us has through the United States Constitution protects each woman and their right to choose, our advancement in technology has lowered the mortality rate of women who undergo abortion, and our values have changed. Therefore we cannot use our past laws to govern current abortion laws. Work Cited "Definition of Abortion." Med Terms. MedicineNet.com, Web.
