However, abortion is different than most debates because a human life is involved. Both parties believe that they have an open line of communication with the public, but do they? Making a clear determination on which side of the debate to fall on is quite difficult. Abortion is an exceptional argument in which one cliché is true; public opinion does in fact rest in the midpoint (NY TIMES). The Pro-life movement is a passionate one.
“You cannot hinder someone’s free will, that’s the first law of the Universe, no matter what the decision.” ― E.A. Bucchianeri One of the most controversial debates in the United States is abortion. It remains a highly politicized issue based on morality, gender roles, political ideology, personal responsi¬bility and human rights. Even with increased state restrictions and the anti-choice movement’s efforts to limit abortion, half of unin¬tended pregnancies in the United States still end in abortion (Mohr, 1979). When discussing abortion it is easy to get lost in your own views whether they are pro-choice or pro-life but ultimately one must remain mindful that though highly debatable; abortion is legal within the United States and it is the women’s choice what they decide to do with their bodies.
Pages presents these cases, which all happened in 2004, to illustrate how pro-lifers try to enforce their views and lifestyles on the people around them and how that is putting women’s right to use contraception and have legal abortions in danger. Page proclaims, “Pro-life groups are not merely antiabortion and anti– birth control. They are against sex and the sex lives the vast majority of Americans enjoy.” (30) This shows that pro-lifers are ultimatel... ... middle of paper ... ...ve to people is that abortion is just one of the things that the pro-life movement opposes. After reading the book I understand that the pro-life movement is simply against sex being recreational whether before marriage or after marriage. To them sex is for procreation only.
By doing this they can talk to others who have the same views and help the organisation to fight against abortion. Christians might support this organisation because of their belief that life is sacred. They might believe that it is wrong to do ... ... middle of paper ... ... views in conversations about abortion, explaining why they believe that abortion is sometimes the most loving choice and the lesser of two evils. They may also discourage other people from harshly criticizing women who have had abortions. As a Christian they are likely to pray about the problem of abortion asking God to help those women who have chosen to abort to be given the strength to get through the procedure and the worries and stress which follow.
Abortion, for example, is one issue they viewed differently because Bush was pro-life and Gore was pro-choice. Healthcare was extremely important in this campaign because Gore wanted to help the elderly more, which was one of the main points of his campaign, and this ended up hurting Bush. The biggest issue happened to be education. Both wanted education to excel while they were President but had different ways of going about it. When it came to the abortion issue, I thought it was the one that mainly pulled in the women’s’ votes.
‘ABORTION’ INTRODUCTION AND CONFLICT Abortion is one of the most critical issues on each American administration’s agenda. This is because while every politician would love to avoid the issue altogether, public wants to know exactly what the government’s stand on this particular issue is so that they would be able to judge it better. This is quite strange how stance on abortion has become an important criterion for judging a government and it can either turn people in favor of it or completely against it depending on how government interprets its own stand. From this it is evident that people attach great degree of significance to this issue because it somehow is related to their sense of morality and tolerance. Let us understand what exactly abortion is and what is the significance of Court in this particular area of conflict.
The Conservative Party The Conservative Party stands for patriotism, having respect and pride for the country we live in, keeping the United Kingdom as a 'union', and putting Britain's interests first. Tories also have a respect for British traditions and values, such as a respect for the Monarchy and the Church of England. However they think pragmatically, they are willing to change but they are suspicious of change, especially dramatic change, thus they prefer evolution to revolution. Also, the Conservatives stand for having a strong but limited, Government, meaning they feel that the Government should be powerful, but they should also intervene with people's lives less. This is done by taxing people less, allowing them to have more of their own money to spend on what they want.
While some countries completely ban abortion altogether, some states in America allow it under certain circumstances, and some other states openly allow it. Regardless of the presence of these laws, the public continues to attack or defend the existing policies to steer the government in their desired directions. California, in particular, has given in to its citizens wanting more freedom for women and thus signed the law that gave permission to more practitioners to perform first-trimester abortions (Eilperin, 2013). Despite of the government’s reasoning behind it - that the law provides more affordable and accessible abortion plans to women - this early abortion access law brings to surface even more problems regarding women’s health issues. Before discussing the implications of this new bill, it is important to first analyze the most problematic aspect of abortion: its hazardous effects on the mothers’ healths.
His determination was supposed to save this nation, but instead has alienated us from the rest of the world and sent us backwards in civil rights and environmental reform. As a Christian, I cannot abandon my support for those who wish to spread Christian values, but on the practical level this nation's fate cannot hinge on one man's faith. The intersection of faith and logic has created an impasse. Christianity and the values at its roots have found in President Bush the opportunity to become more deeply ingrained into American society. After being re-elected, Bush will likely drive these values to such depths as to threaten other religions and our nation's founding principle of freedom of religion.
Faith might work for some in the religious arena, it does not and cannot work in the political arena. We can hope God does not have a secondary agenda, but for the entirety of humanities existence people in power always have ulterior motives. And this brings us to Boyd 's topic of alignment to an individual who is anti-choice. Just as we know and understand Christians believe in keeping a child, so does a political candidate. They are called platforms for a reason, they get you into office.
