Although Maté is around these patients and talk to them all the time, the other side of the argument is that it doesn’t mean that drug addictions always originate from unhappiness. Most people with drug addictions are unhappy and depressed, although some people are just naturally susceptible to addictions. Maté demonstrates this theory by observing infant rats that did not get a lot of grooming from their parents. This lack of grooming leads to development of fewer benzo receptors and helps to prove his claim that all children need positive parental interactions to enhance the growth of their brains. These receptors are what the drugs bind with to create the psychological effect on the brain.
I have been pregnant and addicted, so this is an issue that is very near and dear to my heart. I believe that addiction is a disease that is not curable but it can be arrested if the proper steps are taken. I know for myself that I did not want to use drugs while I was pregnant or harm my child in anyway shape or form, but I was under the control of the drugs, not my own personal values. If I would not have been given the chance to address my addiction I would not be the person that I am today. Also, the education I have been taught has led me down a better path, I can now be a productive responsible human being and mother.
While the negative consequences of teenage pregnancy are felt most by young women and their children, it is important that strategies to reduce teenage pregnancy also impact on young men's attitudes and behavior. Teenage pregnancy is a complex issue, affected by young people's knowledge about sex and relationships and their access to advice and support; and influenced by aspirations, educational attainment, parental, cultural and peer influences and levels of emotional well-being. Pregnancy options- If you are pregnant, you have three options. First, you can stay pregnant and become a parent, with or without the support of the other parent. Second, you can carry the pregnancy to term (when the baby is ready to be born), and then give the baby up for adoption.
Part of the State’s police power is to promote public health, safety, and welfare. The law recognizes that parents do not always make the best decision for their children. Parens patriae provides the State a wide range of power to interfere and limit parental authority in relation to things that would affect the child’s welfare. If the State views a parental decision or act to be harmful to a child, the State will exercise its parens patriae and police power to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the child (Fourteenth Amendment...). The State recognizes that confidential access to reproductive health care is essential for adolescents because many minors would avoid contraceptive services if forced to involve or notify their parents.
Pro-Protective Custody Laws Position For: A fetus is a life, a person, and most importantly a future child. It is our job as a society to ensure that he or she is protected. When this woman chose to carry this child, she in fact gave up her right to control her own body, and make choices only for her well-being. In the hunt for justice, we must make the fetus’s rights just as important as the mother’s. If a woman chooses not to seek medical attention for her unborn child, is that not the same as a mother not seeking medical attention for her baby’s aliment?
Outline and evaluate the psychodynamic approach to abnormality The psychodynamic approach assumes that experiences in our earliest years can affect our emotions, attitudes and behaviour in later years without us being aware that it is happening. Freud suggested the mind or psyche has three parts: the conscious, the preconscious, and the unconscious. Freud suggested that individuals can never be aware of the contents of the unconscious. Freud argued that childhood experiences play a crucial part in adult development, including the development of adult personality. Every child must pass through the so-called psycho-sexual stages; how a child experiences these stages plays a crucial role in the development of his/her personality.
Birth Defects enable the child to be fully developed. Babies born with a meth addiction can Suffer from low birth rate, tremors, attention deficit disorder, and other birth defects. An unborn child is not protected while in their mother’s uterus, so he/she are exposed to whatever the carrier intake is. An infant who has been exposed to drugs before birth has in increased risk of dying of SIDS also known as “crib death”. Behavioral Problems: Parental substance abuse can be destructive to a family and the relationship that exists within the unit.
The Pro-life advocates who are against late-term abortion argued that life begins at conception. At six weeks the fetus heart begins to beat and all the major organs have developed. In that case, any action deliberately taking to abort the fetus is ethically wrong and is considered as murder. An unwanted child is a pitiful thing, the thought of terminating something that if allowed to run its natural course, would result in the birth of a human being that will bring joy to most families. The Pro-abortionist focused only on a women’s right to choose and all the social problems inherent in an unwanted child, forgetting that the unborn child is a precious thing that has the right to life and deserves the full protection under the moral and ethics law.
Practicing abstinence may be the most utterly method for minimizing this rate, but it’s an irrational method. It would not educate them on the life changing risks correlated with sexual intercourse. Providing a clear and precise curriculum in sex education focussed on career goals, sexually transmitted diseases, healthy relationships, the results of being a young parent, and facts on contraceptives would be most beneficial. Educating minors on how sexual activity at a young age can drastically change their lives would greatly impact the reduction of teen pregnancy. Teen pregnancy proceeds as a major issue with more than half of all teenagers in the United States stating that they had participated in sexual intercourse at least one point before high school ended.
Considering the circumstances Sheila and Roger must decide what is in the best interest of the fetuses. Sheila’s situation results in a dilemma no matter what approach she takes. If she decides to carry on the pregnancy the disease has no cure and it would eventually end their life. The twins would spend much time
