It is proven that actually the younger a woman is, she is more susceptible to the mental effects of abortion. “The younger the girls, the more attached they have become to their child. When they are pressured into having an abortion, their sense of vulnerability compounds the trauma; their sense of helplessness is magnified by their inability to protect their child” (Grigg). People think that if they get rid of a baby all responsibility of caring for a child is lost, which proves false the younger you are. 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).

When we hear of women having abortions, we seem to automatically think that she wasn’t careful enough, or she didn’t use contraception. We forget to stop and think about the other possible reasons she may have accidentally become pregnant. Just forgetting to take one pill per packet can reduce it’s effectiveness and also taking anti-biotics, or being ill can also undermine the way the pill works. Condoms can tear or be forgotten, and emergency contraceptives like the ‘morning after’ pill are underprescribed and not readily available. Would it surprise you that over 50% of women getting an abortion in Britain used some form of contraception when they got pregnant?
Breastfeeding in Public Controversy Breastfeeding in Public Controversy Emily Tirado Kaplan University May 16, 2016 Breastfeeding in Public Controversy There is the common argument that women are over exposing themselves when breastfeeding in public. Exposed breasts are everywhere in movies, magazines and on television. Putting a baby to the breast to nourish them everything about the breast becomes offensive and those mothers are made to feel embarrassed. The fact is that a new mother has gone through so many changes that there is nothing sexual about the act of breastfeeding. There is a good possibility that breastfeeding is one of the most challenging things she has done.

1), an unbelievable 40% say their biggest fear pertaining to breastfeeding is nursing in public (Lansinoh Laboratories Inc.). Pleading that nursing a baby is natural, multitudes of comments counter that argument, saying defecation, urination, and even sexual intercourse are natural as well, but they aren’t doing it in public. These types of comments are disadvantageous to breastfeeding success rates and are regulating women to restrooms, changing rooms, hot vehicles, and even homes, in response to having to feed their child.

Unfortunately, taking a break meant she lost her ability to breast feed completely. During this period, she was troubled by all of the elderly women in our extended family who demanded to know why she would not breastfeed, criticized her for her inability to produce milk, and failed to understand her reasoning. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants be breastfed exclusively for the first six months of life and preferably up to twelve months or however long both the mother and baby are willing. Breast milk provides babies with protection against multiple diseases, healthier growth and digestion, and closer relationships; however, in some cases, breastfeeding is not an option for young mothers.
