Kierra Bilbrew English 1020 Smith 29 October 2012 The Mission Statement of Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood Federation of America is a name that most people in the United States can recognize. They are an organization funded by the government specializing in reproductive health, sex education, and abortions. This mission statement relates with my theme because Planned Parenthood is a place where many people go to get counseling, birth control, and more for free or a low cost. The purpose of this mission statement, just like any other mission statement, is to explain the reason for Planned Parenthood is existent. The actual title of it is “A Reason for Being.” One of the reasons I believe a mission statement is important for all organization is so people can know what the business stands for and why it is important.
Murdock suggests four main functions the nuclear family performs for the good of society as a whole and the individuals. These functions include: Reproduction were the family have children which means the human race keeps going, Primary socialisation were the family teaches children norms (acceptable behaviour) and values (right and wrong), Economic support which is the family giving financial support, it feeds and provides shelter for its members and lastly Sexual; maintaining a heterosexual relationship and allowing the expression of sexuality in a socially approved manner. Murdock sees these functions as an important base for society to be stable and run smoothly. However many criticisms are put forward against Murdock’s ideas of the nuclear family. Parsons argued that in today’s society, the existence of institutions such as the state means the family has lost some of its functions.
Mandatory Insurance Coverage on Birth Control: Good or Bad? “Unplanned pregnancies can have severe consequences, such as physical and emotional stress, as well as financial hardship” (Friedman). The Affordable Care Act put into action on March 23, 2010 mandated that insurance companies fully cover contraceptives for women (Pecquet). Nearly 30 million women are already benefiting greatly from this mandate (Chesler and Flynn, “The Contraceptive Mandate”). The question that comes to mind with this bill is whether or not it is good or bad.
It’s reality that a man and woman create a human life together and they both should have birth control options available to them at all times to make wise, informed decisions about bringing a life into the world. A second world view in favor of birth control is that it’s a win for taxpayers. When unplanned pregnancy occurs, it is cited that in the United States alone, the cost to taxpayers is 12 billion dollars a year. A large portion of that money goes toward providing health care for low income persons care through and after the birth of a child, through Medicaid. In 2008, 41% of births were covered by Medicaid, with an average cost of $12.631 per child/woman.
World Vision International is an NGO that effectively communicates the responsibility of the State to finance girls’ education and the unique role other NGO’s can play in helping governments through advocating, partnering and complementing the work of the State in order ensure that all children enjoy their right to a quality gender-equitable education. In summation, not only has the Equal Opportunity Tribunal substantially contributed to their responsiveness of women’s right
