Health Care is one of a human’s basic rights as a citizen of the United States and we all should have access to affordable health care. But recently, the responsibility of providing an affordable option for birth control was given to the head of companies and to do with it what they please.

...t away and that companies such as Hobby Lobby should be charged with discriminating against women for denying their rights to affordable health care.
When the most used birth control methods disappeared when the witch trials hit, it took years for medicine scientists to come up with medications to replace what people used in the early Middle Ages. With all the work put into finding ways to prevent pregnancy and help the pain of menstrual cycles, it is a shame to see it denied to women working for big companies. The amount of girls and women who use any type of birth control is very high and continues to stay this way because of the benefits and the percentage of birth control working for these women. Taking away working women’s access to affordable birth control is unacceptable and I hope that one day soon all women will have access to affordable birth control.

- For all of its praise of ethics and morals, humanity ironically condemns itself through its innate corruption and tyranny. The birth of this corruption lies in the presence of control, as world leaders constantly assert their dominance over their nations, steadily desiring continued control over the people. In the modern People’s Republic of China, the public witnesses an extreme ruling that controls its media consumption with continued government support of the “Great Firewall of China that prevents free access to information on the Internet,” effectively establishing a foundation for the corruption that holds the nation (“China”)....

Yet, in the years 1692 to 1693, witchcraft was certainly on their minds. During that time, the mysterious circle of girls was a questionable day by day occurrence. The other girls in the community that were not accepted into the circle felt left out.... [tags: Salem witch trials, Witchcraft, Puritan]

- ... Because of this, Block and Miller illustrate the lunacy of McCarthy’s accusations, as he had an enormous influence on America but had insufficient evidence to back his claims. In the cartoon “I Have Here In My Hands,” Block uses McCarthy holding a “doctored photo” and “faked letter” as an example of the deceitful documents used to convict communists. Additionally in The Crucible, the proof used to accuse witches includes mumbling, reading books, and owning poppets. These insignificant pieces of evidence could lead to conviction and even death, despite the fact that this meager proof hardly justified these punishments....
