According to Christians the Bible do not encourage birth control for men and women were put on earth to have children(“Against Contraceptives”). Therefore nobody should use birth control because it is not the bible. However using birth control too much could mean a dangerous reduction in the number of children being born. Not all women can afford birth control, birth control is only offered to women with a prescription(“pros and cons of birth control”).What this article does not take into place is that not all teens using birth control believe in god. The availability of condoms and the pill has led to a huge increase in casual sex, leading to the spread of STD including AIDS, as well as unwanted pregnancies.
Since promoting birth control was still illegal in many states, the FDA approved the hormone pills for menstrual disorders, such as irregular periods or PMS. By 1960, the FDA had approved the first oral contraceptive tablet, Envoid, and by 1965 millions of women were on “The Pill”. That same year, the Supreme Court struck down state laws that prohibited contraception use, though only for married couples. Unmarried people were out of luck until 1972, when birth control was deemed legal for all (Seigel). The Pill was not without critics.
To do this he uses Morse code with his head to communicate to the nurse to tell them that he wants to show the public his body and what war does, but the nurses can’t because it is against the regulations of the government because they don’t want people to feel bad for him and get mad at the government for forcing him into the war through the draft. This is just one reason there are many other reasons why we should try to prevent war as much as possible. Johnny Got his Gun really brings you into the shoes of what it would be like to be a helpless war victim knowing that the rest of your life is destroyed due to war casualties. Getting the rest of your life destroyed for something you didn’t want to do in the first place just seem really out of place for our society today. The hardships that he goes through seems like hell, not knowing if you are asleep or awake, not being able to move at all, barely begin able to breath, not begin able to drink or eat, and most of all wanting to kill yourself just because you are so depressed of being a nobody, and not being able to do anything but lie in bed.
In 1873, the U.S. Congress passed the Comstock Law, which regulated public access to birth-control devices and information for the next 60 years. This prohibition, which made it illegal to distribute any device, medicine or information designed to prevent conception, applied even to doctors. During the early 1900's, Margaret Sanger started the birth control movement in the United States. She and others opened clinics to provide women with information and devices. She and her followers were frequently jailed but were also able to change many laws.
The case ruled that these laws were in violation of the Fourth Amendment, which ensured the privacy of American citizens. There was considerable debate about how far the right to privacy extended. This case established the right to “marital privacy” which gave married couples the right to birth control, but this right was still not extended to unmarried couples. However, this case did establish sexual practices as private decisions, which influenced the outcome of later cases granting the right of birth control to unmarried couples or minors, the right to abortion for any woman, and the right to homosexual contact. These rights being granted were critical to moving toward a country that has equal rights regarding sex and sexuality.
The biggest outrage was the infection of innocents, women and children who encountered the disease as a result of unfaithful husbands and fathers. Efforts by the progressives to stop the spread of venereal disease were first directed towards members of the military, who were far detached from the wholesome values of home. Soon after, public health measures were extended to the entire United States population. In the early twentieth century, public health campaigns stressing the importance of sexual continence arose to stop the spread of venereal disease. Issues of morality and hygiene surrounding the military became known to the progressives after reports of lewd behavior amongst troops stationed along the Mexican border surfaced.
They also claim that many sexually/blood transmitted diseases are still commonly found in homosexual communities. However not all homosexual males engage in risky sexual behavior , and due to advancement in technology we are able to effectively screen for any infections and harmful diseases found in blood. The United States, Food and Drug administration should revoke their ban on homosexual males donating blood. The blood ban was first adopted during the early 80's because many people were inadvertently infected with H.I.V and AIDs through blood transfusions. Blood agencies faced mounting pressure from the infected and their families to place and maintain a ban stopping homosexuals from donating blood as to stop the spread of the infections.

Abortion is a barricaded decision that survives in the very back of our thoughts, but when it’s convenient it comes forth to the light. Abortion; is the intentional killing of a fetus which usually stems from the result of an unintended pregnancy, instead of being prepared to take care of the child, couples take the easy route. Abortion is completed at it’s early stages of gestation, a study was conducted, “the Contraceptive CHOICE Project, in which women at risk of unintended pregnancy in the St. Louis, Missouri, region received a reversible contraceptive method of their choice for up to 3 years at no cost”, which is a good clinical research opportunity simply because a lot of people don’t have access to contraceptives to prevent their multiple pregnancies back to back (Allen 75). Around the world as a whole, one may notice that unintended pregnancies are higher among the uneducated, the lower income and unmarried women living with their partners.
It was legal when settlers first came to the united states before the Constitution abortion was openly advertised and performed on a regular basis. Abortion makes its history back to the mid 1800s when states started to make abortion illegal. The fear that the states had in the 1800s were that the population would be dominated by the children of immigrants which had higher birth rates. In the 1800s mostly all surgical procedures including abortions were seen to be extremely risky. Hospitals that provided such services were not common and all the antiseptics were unknown.
There was no birth control and the only way to prevent pregnancies was to use a condom. This all changed, and the way the world is today changed all because of one women.
