The story of Aileen Wuornos was of specific interest to the feminist movement. Wuornos was one of America’s most notorious female serial killers. She confessed to murdering seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990, later asserting they raped or attempted to rape her while she was earning a living as a prostitute. She was found guilty, condemned to death for six of the murders, and put to death by means of a lethal injection on October 9, 2002 (Chesler 170). Was Aileen Wuornos justified in her retaliation?
Even if all the “spillover” was cartel vs. cartel it will not be long before our border towns are like that of Mexico. Innocent bystanders at the wrong place, wrong time, and gunned down. Babies have been kidnapped, gutted, packed with drugs, and used as decoys for female smugglers. We want your attention now! Spillover is here!
Women all over were rounded up and stolen as “prostitutes” (sex-slaves) for the Japanese soldiers. Houses were broken into at random, and girls who were barely old enough to walk, and old women who were so crippled by time that they too could barely walk, were raped in from of their entire families. Women and girls were gang-raped in the streets so violently that those who ruptured and bled out were the lucky ones, for the survivors had to deal with the mental and physical scarring for years to come; a startling number committed suicide. Chang speaks of massive numbers of women a time later who, after giving birth to Japanese babies and were in such emotional turmoil that they threw themselves into the Yangzi River. In homes, incest was forced upon families.
She writes, “Two-thirds of the women [engaged in prostitution] died young from sexually transmitted diseases, botched abortions, alcohol abuse, narcotics abuse, suicide, or murders.” The same shift in public mind regarding the family values is described in Galen’s Epitaph on a Tombstone. It is as follows, “Here lies the body of Mary Moore/Born a Virgin, died a whore,/For sixteen years she preserved her virginity/A dam fine record of this vicinity.
ABORTION IN THE BAHAMAS BY: Wilshany Anesca Do you consider something with a beating heart a living creature? A baby heart forms and starts beating in the fifth week of pregnancy; therefore, that would make abortion murder. The baby that is growing inside of the woman is depending on her, so when she makes the choice to end that baby's life, they are making the choice to murder another person. Someone that believes in the pro-choice theory would say that the decision is up to the woman, but the person with the pro-life theory would say that it is murder no matter what the situation. Most people consider it murder to kill a baby the day after it is born.
Argument Essay Sara M. Linert Grand Canyon University English Composition II November 28, 2010 Sex Trafficking seems to be increasing in the United States. I am 100% against the trafficking of any human being regardless of age or sex. The United States government estimates that 50,000 women and children are trafficked into the United States with most being transported from Asia, Latin America, Russia, and the New Independent States. Being a mother of two this issue really concerns me and touches my heart. I cannot imagine the pain and suffering these young girls and women dealt with during this horrible experience and how they even recover and live a normal life afterward.

From the day she was accused of killing her daughter up until her recent days in court finally, I have read and listened to countless evidence. There is no doubt in my mind that Casey Anthony is guilty of killing her daughter Kaylee Anthony. I believe the media for the most part also believes whole heartedly that Casey is guilty of first-degree murder. However in this particular article they argue the chance of Casey just having bad timing and hard childhood. Regardless of what might have happened over 10 years ago, doesn’t change the fact that she took another human beings life who just happens to be her own flesh and blood.
The women had no choice but to be punished the same way as men were; brutally. This involved being beaten, burned alive, and the women specially, drowning for committing adultery. The men sent to drown these women had been practising how to do so and this was a very common practise that would occur. There were torture devices that were used specially for women such as the ‘Breast Ripper’ also known as ‘Spider’. As the name suggests, the female’s breasts were ripped off by using claws which either would be heated or used cold.
She also cites facts, while maintaining an emotion, by mentioning George Sodini, who specifically targeted women in his shooting “killing three women and injuring nine others." This intends to bring out the moral woe within the reader. One of the strongest of Valenti’s uses of emotional tone is when she states that the leading cause of death for women who are pregnant are murdered by their partner. It is almost unthinkable: with so much emphasis in America on the sanctity of life, whether or not to allow abortion or the morality of stem cell research; the fact that “the
