Despite Natural Law forbidding abortion, there is a doctrine of double effect that can be implemented. If the mother’s life is threatened as a result of the pregnancy, for instance during an ectopic pregnancy, then the destruction of the fallopian tube would be acceptable. Here, the primary aim is not the terminate the pregnancy but to save the mother’s life. The secondary effect is that the embryo is destroyed. Here, abortion would be permissible even by Natural law followers, who believe in the sanctity of life.
In contrast, the small risk of side effects greatly outweighs getting these potentially life threatening diseases such as polio, HPV, and hepatitis. What risks would you (or your children) be willing to take to avoid these vaccinations? This world is composed of many passionate people. Some of which believe that God gave them everything they need to heal themselves, and no drugs or vaccinations should be injected or ingested into their bodies. It is also believed that vaccines are causing autism.
Getting vaccinated may have some risks but the benefits of getting vaccinated are way better than not getting vaccinated. Parents need to take the responsibility of having their children vaccinated to protect themselves, their children, and their community (Voices for Vaccination, n.d.). Research suggests that parents should have their children vaccinated because there are minimal risks, it decreases the risk of their children from getting sick and passing it on, and there are many benefits from vaccination. All in all, vaccination saves lives. There are many reasons why people choose to not have their children vaccinated such as that they don't believe that vaccinations work or they don't think it's necessary (Vaccinate Your Baby, 2011).
Private ownership prevents the government from controlling ones worth and individual liberty. That's why Jackson's amendments would contradict the purpose of the constitution by decreasing private property ownership and turn people into tax slaves instead. It is basic knowledge that a government that is permitted to take from some and give to others possesses the power to deprive anybody of their equal rights to life etc. With this declaration I feel Cuffey is overreacting, when he basically says providing free shelter to the homeless and free health care to all Americans will cause people to be less free. In Denmark I as a citizen am fortunate to be given free health care, and I certainly do not feel less free than any other American who cannot say the same.
Conclusion Birth Control Funding Contraception is the use of various devices to prevent pregnancy. People today believe that the only contraception out there is condoms. They are not aware of the different birth controls out there and that is mainly because they can’t afford it and it’s not covered in their health insurance. Health companies should be more reliable and they should cover their customers better. Health companies should provide coverage for Birth Control because it will make it more affordable for women to obtain Birth Control, it helps prevent illnesses but the unborn are threatened.
Why is there countless evidence that the reason there are drugs such as cocaine, LSD, heroin, and speed? "Take a holiday from reality whenever you like, and come back without so much as a headache or a mythology. "(Huxley 54)This quote made me feel that our government puts there drugs here to “condition” us in a way. These aspects of life seem to me like a way for the government to do things like population control and to get rid of lower class, by having drugs readily available for us the consumers. If the government were to advertise drugs I think it would go something similar to "A gramme is better than a damn.” (Huxley
In total, taxpayers spend up $7.5 billion, or $23,500 per person, annually on feeding, clothing, and providing shelter for marijuana offenders (Donziger). Building new prisons, because there is such a vast number of marijuana prisoners, costs even more money. Since taxpayers have paid nearly $300 billion to fund the War in Iraq, it is time a burden is taken off the taxpayer’s shoulders (Office). Incarcerating drug offenders cost taxpayer 1.8 billion annually, according to most analyst (Stuart). Other substantial costs include enforcing marijuana laws.
Weaknesses Viagra is an oral medication that people use to cure erectile dysfunction, as are its main competitors Cialis and Levitra. It’s main weakness is that there is little differentiation between these three brands, they all produce the same outcome in the same way and that can really affect how much people are willing to pay for the brand name if its competitors are offering it cheaper. Although Viagra is currently in the process of trying to make their product an over the counter drug, for the time being it currently requires a prescription. We feel that this is a large weakness for Viagra because erectile dysfunction is such an emotional topic, talking to a doctor may defer a large portion of men away from getting help purely because they don’t want to have to talk about it. As men age and their metabolism slows, their health starts to deteriorate which in turn weakens their heart causing problems with erectile dysfunction.
Comprehensive Sexual Education vs. Abstinence-Only Sexual Education has become one of America’s most debatable subjects between people. Right wing conservatives argue that schools should only teach abstinence-only programs, while social liberals argue that American schools should teach comprehensive programs that promote abstinence. Abstinence-only programs only discuss the narrow topic of abstaining from sex usually until marriage because it will avoid the risk of pregnancy, STDs, and later on will benefit the sexual bond with one’s ultimate partner. Now abstinence may be the best overall choice but that certainly does not mean teens are going to abstain because of this. The problem with abstinence only programs is that they do not teach
By the 1990s, the sheer weight of evidence had forced major tobacco companies to admit that their products are both harmful and addictive. Many governments have substantially increased taxes on tobacco in order to discourage smoking, and often to alleviate the economic costs of smoking-related illness. However, while smoking has declined amongst some groups, it has increased amongst others - particularly young women. Meanwhile restrictions on the industry in the developed world have seen a new emphasis on developing nations, and new markets. Key questions for this debate are: Is it the proper role of government to legislate to protect citizens from the harmful effects of their own lifestyle decisions?
