Important Topics in US History - History is more complicated than simply a list of achievements or failures.

Abortion: One Of The Most Controversial Topics Today - Abortion: One of the Most Controversial Topics Today In the early American Colonies, English Common Law was adopted by the United States, which declared abortion forbidden. The procedure was ruled a misdemeanor if performed before quickening, which meant “feeling life,” and a felony if performed after quickening. In the early 1800s, it was discovered that life begins at conception and not when the mother “feels life.” Eighty-five percent of the states had laws that made all abortions a felony. Between the 1800s and today, many arguments have taken place regarding when life begins for a fetus and to what extent the mother has a right to terminate her pregnancy (Fast Facts: History of the U.S...   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Human Cloning Should Not be Permitted -      According to Richard Seed, "cloning is inevitable.  If I don't do it, someone else will.  There's no way you can stop science" (qtd. in Kadrey 2001).
