A Stance on Abortion

- One of the most controversial issues in this day and age is the stance people take on abortion. The two main positions that people take are either of pro-choice or pro-life; both sides, although polar opposites, tend to refer to both the issue of morality and logical rationale. The pro-life side of the debate believes that abortion is an utterly immoral practice that should be abolished. On the contrary, abortion should remain a legal procedure because it is a reproductive right; its eradication would not only take away the pregnant person’s autonomy, but would also put more children in financially unstable homes and the adoption system, and would cause an increase in potentially fatal, unsa...   [tags: voluntary termination of pregnancy]

Hence, the general citizens have no say in any aspect of their country, which contradicts the meaning of democracy in America’s ideology of a constitutional democracy and its Greek root meaning of democracy “rule of the people” and not North Koreas leading...   [tags: Kim Jong-Un, North Korea]

Geoffrey Chaucer Stance on Feminism

- The investigation into whether or not Geoffrey Chaucer was ahead of his time in terms of his views on feminism has been up for debate for hundreds of years. The Wife of Bath’s Prologue is just one solitary example of the complicated nature of Chaucer’s belief system. On the one hand, we have many strong female characters that despite still being extremely dependant on the men in their lives, know what they want out of life. From a contrasting point of view, readers see a group of men, including Chaucer as the writer himself, making fun of the very nature of women as a whole....   [tags: characters, women, roles, opinions]
