A Paper On The Morality Of Abortion

- Don Marquis, a philosophical journalist, wrote a paper on the morality of abortion. Most importantly, his paper was not an argument on whether or not a fetus was a human; Marquis’ approach was more specific and unique. In his argument, Marquis criticized the conflicting sides of being too ambiguous or too explicit. However, his argument allowed for serious and credible objections. On the other hand, Judith Jarvis Thomson, another moral philosopher, spoke about abortion and the many exceptions that most people agree with....   [tags: Abortion, Abortion debate, Morality, Human]

Reflection Paper On The Era Of Reconstruction

- J’Taiya Carr 1/25/15 Chapter 17 REFLECTION PAPER 1 Almost 100 years after fighting to be our own country, America fought itself to stay a country and the aftermath was anything but peaceful. I am not surprised this happened since America has shown it will fight for what it believes in and the freedom they believe they deserve. The era of reconstruction lasted from 1865 to 1877, consisting of the government fighting to fix the country so America could rise from the ashes and become a great nation again....   [tags: Reconstruction era of the United States]

Women in the Law Term Paper

- ... Since women are the only gender to experience child labor there is a gap in the eyes of those protecting them. Women are more often involved in sexual harassment/assault cases on college campuses than a man, which puts them at a great disadvantage when it comes to addressing the issue how it is to be resolved. We see more evidence of Supreme Court cases dealing with men as plaintiffs and winning than the opposing female side in the same position. Women are considered inferior to men mainly because these types of situations and others regarding violence or sexual assault do not happen to men all too often....   [tags: discrimmination and gender bias]

The Short End Of The Stick

- Africa always had the short end of the stick when it came to its reputation. It all started when a German philosopher named Georg Hagel visited Africa and made a very miss informative statement about it in 1837. In his own unwitting words, Hagel basically suggested that Africa was worthless, had no history, and that the people were wild. Word of Hagel’s statement spread to the western world and that particular stereotype has been around for a very long time. Over a century later, in 1964, another philosopher named Hugh Trevor-Roper went on a trip to Africa....   [tags: Africa, Colonialism, Education]
