Opinion on Abortion

- Opinion on Abortion My own opinion of abortion is very varied. There are so many different reasons for abortions. Every woman who has had one will have had reasons. I am sure they wouldn't have decided in a few minutes that they were going to abort their baby. They would have thought long and hard about what to do. I put myself in the position of someone else. If I got pregnant now would I really be able to keep it. I would, for one, have to stop school and miss out on the education I would need to bring up a child....   [tags: Papers]

It's my opinion

- It's my opinion I was told that the principal had used her executive power to chop up my article into bits that didn’t contain the harassing, offensive points that it originally owned. I was sad, very very sad. It’s tough for someone with a weak emotional structure to be rejected and told I’m harassing to younger people.

Authorial Opinion Of Wife Of Bath

- The character of the Wife of Bath is clearly feminist. She indicates this by her extreme ideas of female “maistrye” and statements such as “I have the power duringe al my lyf upon his proper body, and nought he,” which is extremely feminist. However, Chaucer makes us see the Wife of Bath as inconsistent, at times illogical, and also amoral and adulterous, The prologue and tale is spoken by a woman of supposed vast experience, yet was written by a man. While the prologue and tale may be seemingly feminist, could it be a vehicle for a deeper anti-feminist message....   [tags: essays research papers]

Opinion of Macbeth in Act 3

- Opinion of Macbeth in Act 3 Shakespeare's Macbeth is the story of a good man turned evil by a dark ambition he cannot control… Macbeth is tragic hero whose character can be viewed from different prospectuses. It is wrong to categorise him as either a tormented man or a callous tyrant because in the play he is displayed as both. We see him digress from, at the beginning of the play a courageous man driven by ambition to become a cruel and arbitrary man. I am going to examine Shakespeare's portrayal of the downward spiral of a man once called a "worthy gentleman" and now "fiendish hell hound"....   [tags: Papers]

The Between Public Opinion And Supreme Court Decisions

- ... The foundation of this law is, “…many States have criminalized sodomy and still do, to claim that a right to engage in such conduct is ‘deeply rooted in this Nation 's history and tradition’ or ‘implicit in the concept of ordered liberty’ is, at best, facetious” (478 U.S. 186, at 191-194). The public mood in the 1980s aligns with the history surrounding this issue and at the time saw consenting adults participating in sodomy as something so obscene it should not be legal. As seen in figure 1 in 1986 the majority is clearly illustrated, a private act between gay couples should not only be not allowed and but be considered a criminal act....   [tags: Homosexuality, Same-sex marriage]

My motive in asking relatively specific rather than open-ended questions was found in Chong’s article, “How People Think, Reason, and Feel about Rights and Liberties”. He found that open-ended questions, much like most survey questions, tend to create “top-of-head” responses rather than more thoughtful and insightful answers that better gauge the interviewee’s opinion....   [tags: surveillance, protocol, questions]
