Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine Debate What is the human papilloma virus? HPV is the leading cause of cervical cancer in woman in the United States. So, why wouldn’t we protect our young preteen girls against this disease? Most mother have a hard time fathoming the idea of their young daughter having sexual intercourse let alone protecting them from a sexually transmitted disease at the age of eleven or twelve when it is recommended. It is one of the hardest decisions a mother has to make when their daughter reaches a preteen.
A study using more than 870,000 women stated that “women who have an abortion are at an 81 percent increased risk for mental health problems, including anxiety disorders, depression, drug abuse and suicidal behaviors” (Monahan). Abortion has side effects that conflict with people 's mental health that no one ever tells you about. “I cried for days and felt like a chunk of me was missing even to this day,” said Chavez, now a pro-life supporter. She was asked how she felt after having chosen to have an abortion, and stated that she didn 't feel complete. Abortion does a great deal of harm to people 's bodies and their minds, causing them to feel helpless and
Second type of abortion is where the mother induces her pregnancy to eliminate the fetus. It is calculated that 46 millions of women in a year get an abortion all over the world. From those 46 million women who got an abortion, 20 million of them risk their lives more because they had an illegal abortion done. This type of abortion is more dangerous than the other one because you are making your body do something that it is not meant to do at that time. Woman do not think ... ... middle of paper ... ...ord.
Millions of unintended pregnancies in the United States each year end in abortion, as it is a way of saving the mother and the child a life of struggle. Unwanted pregnancies take a toll on women and if they are not financially, emotionally, or physically ready for a child, then they should have to choice to abort. Financially, raising a child can be overwhelming. A September 2005 survey in the peer-reviewed journal Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health asking women why they had an abortion, found that 73% of respondents said they could not afford to have a baby (Abortion). In this country, there are 46.5 million people living at or below the poverty line.
Banning Cigarettes This year alone cigarettes will kill over 420,000 Americans, and many more will suffer from cancers, and circulatory and respiratory system diseases. These horrible illnesses were known to come from cigarettes for years. Recently the Food and Drug Administration declared nicotine, the main chemical in cigarettes, addictive. This explains why smokers continue to use cigarettes even though smokers are aware of the constantly warned about health dangers in cigarettes. Some researchers have also found out that smoking by pregnant women causes the deaths of over 5,000 babies and 115,000 miscarriages.
many women begin smoking at an early age and find it hard to quit even during pregnancy. Information given from Health Watch discribes smoking as a harmful gas and deadly substance thats passes throughout baby's blood from mother's blood (2). This selfish act on the mothers part can result in miscarriage, stillborn (SIDS).When a pregnant woman smokes, the various chemicals, including nicotine and carbon monoxide , also affect the baby. "These chemicals have a direcct effect on the growth of the fetus. The more the mother smokes during pregnancy, the lower the weight of the newborn infant.
Before women that smoke decide to make the decision of getting pregnant, they should research all the harmful effects that smoking has on a fetus. If pregnant smokers were to halt tobacco use a total of 986 infant deaths would be averted annually. This validates the need for infusion of more resources into existing smoking cessation campaigns in order to achieve higher quit rates, and substantially diminish current levels of smoking-associated infant deaths (Salihu, Aliyu, Pierre-Louis, & Alexander, 2003). The only way a woman can avoid pregnancy complications associated with smoking is to quit and she should also avoid others who smoke in order to avoid the dangers of second hand smoke.
There are woman every day that die from something going wrong during the abortion. I believe that the only reason you should get an abortion is if it’s because of incest, rape, or if there is a 50/50 chance your baby won’t live. I personally would take that 50/50 chance and have my baby, just because what if the baby was to live and I would be able to hold my baby. From 1973 to 2005 million unwanted pregnancies end in getting terminated. There are many religions all around the world that don’t believe in abortions.
Some mothers who have aborted, feel depressed, regret, and it will often haunt them lifelong. Although an abortion is a procedure done hundreds of times a day, it is still very dangerous for the mother. The reasoning behind abortion being legal, is because people have argued and they believe that a fetus is not considered to be its own person. A fetus is a breathing, living, seeing, hearing person as early as the age of 14 weeks. An unborn baby’s heart starts beating at 20 days, and the brain starts to give off brainwaves at just 40 days.
Do alcohol, smoking and illegal drugs affect the pregnancy? Yes I believe that smoking illegal drugs and drinking alcohol really effects your baby in a very dangerous way .I understand that whatever the mother is consuming so is the child. Alcohol already attacks the drinker’s body and has very serious consequences, so just imagine what it does to the baby. Research has shown that baby that is carried by a drinking or smoking mother has way more health issues then infants who were not carried by an alcoholic or smoker. Many people know that woman advised to give up smoking when they are pregnant or cut down on drinking because they don’t want the baby to come out looking mentally retarded.
