I Won’t Roll the Biological Dice In most societies it is celebrated when a woman gives birth to a child. It is normal and obvious that women want to marry and raise children. But for some women, this is not true. What makes a woman decide that being a mother is not a role she wants to pursue? Here are some reasons: Economic recession, infertility, education and career ambition, or medical issues, might make a woman not want to be a mother.
If she was educated about the importance of prenatal testing Nahla might have been normal today. Sadly, many minority women avoid the distress and discomfot of the medical industry and refuse prenatal care entirely. The skepticism results from doctors failing to effectively communicate the reasons behind such testing and failing to provide the patients with information regarding what the prenatal test is looking for and what such results mean. Because there is a lack of clear communication, some mothers are uncomfortable about recieiving such
Pizan so obviously from the start of her writing, introduces how women should behave (from the perspective of a princess), so that her actions shall be beneficial to her and her husband. By talking about the finances, which is radical, Pizan degrades women in all other aspects. Degrading is used in the sense that she does not promote equality in any other way other than the financial aspect. These women could be considered early feminists if they looked for equality in other things as well not just a specific
In the story, the Awakening, Edna also rebelled against society by freely expressing herself. In her era, most people thought women had to be married and have children but she didn’t want that. This is a perfect example of how women can be rebellious against society’s view on
The genetic mother looks to be the better of the two mothers until there is a problem with the born child and they turn their back on the baby because it wasn’t delivered to their standards. Another downside, which is obviously similar to abortion, is the idea of woman who isn’t so upper class, using surrogacy to earn money. It is a wonderful advantage to be able to help a family have a miracle such as a child, which they can’t have on their own. But, how many is too many? Even a pro-choice individual’s views quickly change toward abortion and exactly how legally available it should be when the same woman gets pregnant and aborts her child more than once.
Some think that as soon as a woman finds out she will be a mother, that she should have no problem quitting drinking. It’s just as hard for them to quit, as it is for someone who is not pregnant. For most mothers admitting to this can be a humiliating experience. Currently, physicians rely heavily on history-taking to screen for women at high risk of alcohol consumption during pregnancies (Cook). However, these screenings are not enough since patients are reluctant to admit the amount of alcohol they consume and physicians are reluctant to talk about it with patients (Burd).
You have a variety of adoptions from same sex, open adoption and closed adoption. This is simply because no one family is the same and as some might want to be discreet about the process others want a bond with the biological parents. Adoption is the new abortion this is because instead of killing a living breathing human being you can just give it to someone who accepts is and want to take care of it. Society now days have different reason on why they do this or do that but in reality its life. No one will ever accept the fact that hay you had an abortion or gave your child away.
I was confused, terrified, upset, and depressed” (Duval). All she could think about was how impossible it would be to raise a child. Harley’s choices of having a baby would be changed if it was in her control. Abortion was never in her mind, adoption was a possibility; but when she saw the first ultrasound of her baby, her mind changed about the pregnancy situation. It was her mistake, so she is going to take on her responsibility, and be a great parent for her unborn child.
The right to be in this world does not add to with one’s age or size, because if it was so then toddlers and young adults would have a less right to live than adults. For one to compare a baby’s rights with its mother’s rights is unethical. The mother’s lifestyle in an abortion is at risk, as opposed to the baby’s life. No woman should be forced to have their rapist’s child. The act of rape itself is brutal, repulsive, and can leave one scared for the rest of their life.
As a women I cannot see myself living in a society like Gilead. I think having the right to say “yes” or “no” to having a child is something most valuable to women. No one has so much power that can tell a women when she can and cannot have a child, she also has the option to chose who she will conceive with and weather or not she will give the bay up for adoption. Forcefully taking a baby from it’s mother is a prime way to kill a women’s psychological foundation, while pregnant an women develops “mothers intuition” and with this love for her unborn baby grows. She feels a sense of closeness to a life she will not know for 9months, now imagine someone taking that love away from her.
