Pro-Protective Custody Laws Position For: A fetus is a life, a person, and most importantly a future child. It is our job as a society to ensure that he or she is protected. When this woman chose to carry this child, she in fact gave up her right to control her own body, and make choices only for her well-being. In the hunt for justice, we must make the fetus’s rights just as important as the mother’s. If a woman chooses not to seek medical attention for her unborn child, is that not the same as a mother not seeking medical attention for her baby’s aliment?
Many people have argued about the most important principals of the constitution, and many have expresses their viewpoints. I believe the three most important Principals of the constitution are Separation of powers, Checks and balances, and Popular Sovereignty. The first Principle we will look at is Separation of powers. What this principle means is that each different branch of the government has different responsibilities; this system is put into effect so to prevent one branch to become to powerful over the other. I believe that this principal of the Constitution is very important because without this put into effect the senate of the president could become much too powerful and overthrow the whole government and we would be in a dictatorship or we would be in a direct democracy or some other form of government.
Abortion is a good example of that. If a woman does not believe in a higher power, what justifies her right to an abortion? With the theory of ethical relativism, it is up to the mother whether she believes that the abortion is morally right or wrong, not society’s morals. Some might ask how a woman could possibly feel that an abortion is a just decision. In cases where the woman is unable to care for the child either; financially, emotionally, or mentally, she may feel that the abortion is morally acceptable.
It used Federalism, separation of powers, checks and balances, and last of all a balance between the powers of big and small states. The founders created a federalism that balances the power of state and national governments. It stops one government from having all the power. “Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people,”( Document A) This double security makes it very difficult for a tyrant or group of tyrants to have all the power. “The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each government will be controlled by it’s self,”(A).
Appointment by legislature was considered, as that was the method most states used to elect the governor; however, delegates feared it would upset the balance of the three branches of government by making the president beholden to congress (Johnson 12-13). They then considered a direct election by the people. This method was viewed as being the most democratic, but presented a myriad of problems. Most significantly, small state delegates were apprehensive to a direct vote by the people, as they worried votes in their states would be overpowered by votes in larger, more populous states (Johnson 12). With appointment by legislature considered a threat to the balance of powers, and a direct vote
This law shows the flaw of Athens and its democracy based government because it infringed on the freedom of speech that most democracies have. The Assembly was made up of all men that were eligible to serve on the council. The Life in Athens may have been sophisticated and nimble. This made Athens a target to other countries since they thought that Athens was a week country. If Athens had more of a military based government then they wouldn’t have been attacked as many of times and maybe never lost their power in Ancient
"Title: The Federalist No. 10 Author: James Madison Time: November 22, 1787 Short Summary:. The Articles of Confederation did not effectively control and reduce the negative effects of factions on the nation, and thus a new government was necessary. The government laid out in the Constitution was ideal because it was a republic, a representative government that would prevent self-interested passions from holding too much sway over the government. It was also large, containing representatives from every state and many different interest groups, making it difficult for one group to dominate and suppress the others.
The Federalist led by Alexander Hamilton favored a strong central government. The Federalist were one of the first political parties in the United States along with the Anti-Federalist led by Thomas Jefferson. The Anti-Federalist favored a more decentralized weak government. The Federalist thought that people like themselves should be in charge of the government. The Federalist were more aggressive in the media, they produced the federalist papers which were newspaper articles to try to convince the people to support the ratification of the Constitution.
That sounds good, but who are these people? How do they know how I feel on certain issues? I can clearly vote for all of my representatives or even possibly one day hold a campaign to become a representative but it wouldn't help the peoples voice, I would make decisions solely upon how I felt. Everybody is different. Under direct democracy you do not rely on someone else making decisions for you.
Abortion (Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life) The right for a woman to choose whether or not to abort a pregnancy is one of the controversial issues in the United States. Pro-life are the people who believe that it is the government’s rights and responsibility to care for all life regardless of all the concerns in the health of the pregnant woman or what kind of life would the child have. Pro-choice are those people who argue and believe that a woman should have the right to decide and make a choice on what she wishes to do when it comes to their own body, as long as it does not harm others with their decision. My standpoint about abortion is that I definitely feel that it is a woman’s right to decide if she is going to do abortion and as long as she has a valid reason to abort a child. The reason why it is important for a woman to make a choice is because a lack of choice could and may lead to medical and health problems for the mother and the child, and a poor environment for the child to grow with.
