The answer is they wont survive, it is estimated that 15,000 orphans die every day due to malnutrition which is completely preventable. Americans have the means and reasons to help out these children, adopting internationally is expensive, no one will tell you different. But is it worth letting a child die rather than paying for their health? The answer is no, every child deserves a family that you could provide for them. A family that will support them and give them a health life.
William J. Bennett states in his article “Against Gay Marriage” that allowing gay marriage is not worth the damage it could bring. Bennett is a distinguished cultural conservative whose article was published in the Washington Post. Although Bennett does bring to light the ratifications legalizing gay marriage would bring, his overall argument fails due to his lack of evidence and points made based on assumption. Bennett claims in his article that accepting gay and lesbian couples to legalize their marriage changes the whole context of marriage. Marriage is not meant to be flexible and recognizing same-sex marriage would mean we are allowing the meaning of marriage to be abolished.
Sullivan says that minors and close family members should not be given the right to marry because minors are unable to understand such a commitment. The marriage of close family members creates incest, which threatens the trust and responsibility the family needs to survive. Sullivan asks if homosexuals fall in the same categories. Sullivan says that “domestic partnership,” a conservative concept, is one of the strongest arguments for gay marriage. Domestic partnerships qualify for benefits previously reserved for heterosexual married couples.
By depriving millions of gay American adults the rights that come from marriage, denies equal protection against the law. Based on the information provided, I disagree with Thomas argument that gay and lesbian marriage should be legalized. I believe marriage should consist of a man and a woman. Marriage is a lifelong commitment between one man and one woman. This commitment is backed by the creation and nurturing of offspring.
Congress knows this is a hot button issue with many Americans and the arguments against it just can’t hold up. Nothing bad can come out of gay marriage. I saw a man protesting on the news holding a picket sign which read, “What would happen if gay marriage were legalized?!? !......Gay people would get married.” I thought his sign was perfect. Why are we so up in arms over this?
Even though there are many ethical beliefs that have always been against this policy, the rule has been estimated to have reduced population growth in the country of 1.3 billion by as much as 300 million people over its first twenty years. This rule has caused a disregard for female infants. Abortion, neglect, abandonment, and even infanticide have been known to occur to female infants, due to the policy. As family’s were restricted to only one child, most of them wanted boys, as it was considered in their culture that boys would look after their parents and carry the family name. The result of such drastic family planning has resulted in the ratio of 114 males for every 100 females among babies from birth through to children at the age of four years.
The New Right believe that state benefits should be cut and social policy targeted to discourage family diversity and promote marriage and the nuclear family. Robert Chester (1985) recognises that there has been some increased family diversity in recent years. However, unlike the New Right he does not regard this as very significant, nor does he see it in a negative light. He argues that the only important change is a more from the dominance of the traditional or conventional nuclear family, to what he
In a western society that continuous to renounce communalism and embrace individualism, it is easily noticed that the problems faced by few are ignored by the many. This ignorance, intentional or not, is allowing communal problems to accelerate the pace. However, the issue at hand is one that affects you whether or not you are aware of it; if you are an American, or in any western society for that matter. It affects nearly twenty percent of the under eighteen population in the United States and costs taxpayers on average 14 billion dollars per year. As a Parent, it can tack $19,000 onto the total of raising each child.
Gay Marriage: The Modern Civil Rights Movement Imagine a world in which one is denied the right to marry the person that he or she loves, based on the government’s belief that only “traditional marriages” will be recognized. This person that he or she loves is the same as every other normally functioning human being, but because they may be of a certain race or gender, the government rules that the relationship is not qualified for the so-called “sanctity of marriage.” Following the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960’s, interracial marriages were outlawed in the United States by a series of miscegenation laws (Bond.) In the influential Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia, a white man named Richard Loving challenged the state of Virginia after he was denied the right to marry an African American woman. Loving argued that it was his constitutional right to marry the partner of his own choosing. The Court ruled in favor of Loving by declaring marriage to be a civil right, outlined by the constitution in the pursuit of happiness (Bond).
They only want to live their lives, just as the straight couples do. Things are so out of hand with this, that one presidential candidate has lumped gay marriage and abortions together as his platform. My opinions of abortions are a personal opinion that is not part of this decision. But it is a topic that again is not to
