* * 2. What are at least two opinions presented by each side of the critical issue? * * Cotton and Devilly stress that Critical incident stress debriefing (CISD) is not explained properly and research has proven that CISD does not give patients the results needed. * Devilly and Cotton also stated that Critical incident stress management (CISM) is also not properly explained in the treatment of traumatized individuals, which makes the process ineffective (Halgin, 2007). * Mitchell’s opinion is that Devilly and Cotton display a lack of knowledge within the text of CISM because no reference to this literature is stated by the authors.
AO1 1 theory for the breakdown of relationships comes from Rollie and Ducks “Model of a Breakdown”. This theory suggests that a breakdown of a relationship goes through several stages. The first stage is “Breakdown” and this is characterised by an individual internally expressing dissatisfaction with their relationship. The second stage is the “intrapsychic stage”- this is also internal and involves the individual brooding on their partners faults. The third stage is the “dyadic stage”.
She also claims that the antiabortionists are fighting against the rights of women and the ability of free choice. McElroy’s argument for abortion wasn’t convincing and most of the claims presented needed more support. I believe that abortion should be illegal unless in some special cases such as rape and situations where the mother’s health can be affect by the pregnancy. The main issue of abortion is the fetus’ life. It all comes down to when it become a human.
This is understandable through her issues on abortion. I believe abortion is a ‘taboo’ in many religions, Catholic being one of them, and therefore making this issue even more complicated. She goes on to discuss her stance on abortion and why she is prochoice. She explains that, “abortion is not a positive good, it has positive outcomes.” Her perspective implies that there are legitimate concerns abortion carries but the outcome is why she believes it should be done. The interviewer made a remark I believe illustrates the true controversy of this issue in that, “abortion remains more abstract because it is a moment of sadness, grief, and confusion.” This statement underlines the situation and its complexity.
Many of the arguments made by the pro-life team take a moral, ethical, or religious standpoint in their persuasion of others. In order for us to gain a more objective look at the debate with real-world pros and cons, the moral, ethical, and/or religious arguments will not be covered. Abortion has been a topic of controversy in America for almost two hundred years. The earliest known instance of conflict occurred in 1821 when Connecticut outlawed the selling of poisons used to induce abortion in women (Abortion ProCon.org). In 1845, New York began the trend of slapping legal consequences for women who have abortions.
This dichotomy of the one and the many presents itself in the premises of the two opponents as follows: Anti-abortionist has the outlook that fetuses are people, and abortion equates to murder. While, on the other hand, the pro-choicer are proponents of the ideal of fetuses not being people, thus abortion doesn’t
They have many issues with processes such as IVF as masturbation to gain the sperm used in IVF is viewed as a misuse of the genitals. To Natural Law thinkers the genitals are for reproduction and masturbation is seen as something done for pleasure, and not the purpose of reproduction. Furthermore the destruction of the spare embryos created during IVF goes against the first Primary Precept of Natural Law which is to preserve and protect life, and these embryos to Natural Law thinkers are life. Natural Law is also against Fertility Treatment as a whole when it comes to single people, post-menopausal women and same sex couples as it is not naturally possible for them to conceive naturally anyway which is defined by the laws of nature of which they believe were created by God and must be upheld . IT is however important to note that Natural Law thinkers are not concerned with the consequences of actions, whether they bring good or bad doesn’t matter but what matters to them is whether the action itself is good or bad.
This characteristic of non-commitment that is symbolic of so many aspects of modern day life has led certain individuals to reject a fetus under the credence that it in itself is not a person, and therefore is not entitled to the rights any other individual can receive. On the other side victims of rape, incest, and molestation rightfully assert that to carry the fetus to term would prove impossible. Certain women due to medical conditions or threats to health state that delivering the baby would be equivalent to forfeiting their own lives. There are yet other factions who practice sex selective abortions and abort children based on their gender; this is commonly practices in countries such as India & China and where in the value of a male child that of a female child exceeds. This is not only a repulsive form of discrimination but it skews the gender ratios that present enormous problems for future generations.
