My Personal Search For A Meaningful Existence

- My Personal Search for a Meaningful Existence I am the representative embodiment of my nihilistic culture. I am narcissistic, insatiable, petty, apathetic and I am above all an emotional invalid. Yet, up until very recently, I was not consciously aware that I was guilty of having any of these wholly pejorative attributes, because I had unconsciously suppressed my inherent will to attain a meaningful existence, in favor of the comfort and security that complacency and futility provide. There exists in me a void, that is not uncommon to find in the members of my Eurocentric society, which is derived from the conscious or unconscious knowledge that our culture is entirely devoid of mean...   [tags: essays research papers]

Making Abortion Illegal is Futile

- Making Abortion Illegal is Futile According to Faye Ginsburg "Abortion has been a controversial issue in society for nearly a thousand years" (98). Historical and present-day evidence shows the law made little difference in the amount of abortions that were occurring while it was illegal. Unfortunately, when abortion was illegal, it put the mothers in great danger. Women must have access to safe abortions. The risks of maternal death lessen when abortion is legal and accessible. Women have always used abortion as a last resort to prevent the birth of a child....   [tags: Papers]
