The articles purpose is to use legal sources to explore the decision to abort while the state, and the professions took a serious interest in the fertility control decisions of women. What is being argued is the fate of women burdened with unwanted
Fighting for justice in “Revolutionary Suicide” presents two conflicts between suicide and salvation. In Oakland California around 1970, African Americans were being so mistreated that a movement was created to fight for black power which is known as Black Panther Party. African Americans were going up against the police and government of the racist south. This was a time Jim Crow laws had just ending along with segregation ,but that dosen’t mean that the whites of the south still didn’t have the same intentions they used to have about blacks. Which lead to many confrontations that resulted in death or injury causing revolutionary suicide. In poem “Revolutionary Suicide,” The style of the poem is built of a cause and effect. First, the speaker addresses that having nothing causes him to have everything .“By having no family I inherited the family of humanity …By having surrendering my life to the revolution I found internal life.” Readers can get an impression that the speaker would make a great leader. Especially when he tells the audience that he is willing to sacrifice himself in order to gain revolution. The speaker is confronting the opposition letting them know he is not afraid of death nor them. He also writes this in the poem
Other steps a. Ensure Hai’s safety as well as other patients and the health team. b. Ensure privacy and confidentiality is practised at all times. c. With Tim’s consent, refer to appropriate authority to commence treatment. d. Aside from Tim, ensure that his family members from the far north Queensland be immediately advised of Hai’s current psychological status.
This policy does not only limit the number of children a family can bear; it has also caused gender imbalance. In addition, it places pressure on women as families believe in passing down their family name down generations. They were also subjected to forced abortion if it appears to be a baby girl, and are blamed if they were to give birth to a baby girl. This difference in treatment took a turn for the worst after 1986, when ultrasound tests and abortion became easier to come by. Not only has the policy stole the freedom of women’s rights to make decisions, it had also led to the increase of female infanticide
During the tour, the students learn about pregnancies and that women are sterilised, yet the men aren’t. This short and important fact by the author exclaims the physiological dominance of men over women. The book shows no clear objection to leaving the future of their offspring in the hands of males, even if it is unhealthy.

Durkheim Suicides Egoistic Suicide is when a person isolates themselves from the world and feel like they no longer belong.
Such practices will turn underground. Sex selective infanticide, and slower death by long term neglect, could increase. If abortion is restricted, the burden is placed on women seeking abortions to show that they have a legally acceptable or legitimate reason for a desired abortion, and this seriously limits women's autonomy. Instead of restricting abortion, banning sex selection, and sex determination, it is better to address the practice of sex selection by elevating the status of women and empowering women so that giving birth to a girl is a real and positive option, instead of a detriment to the parents and family as it is currently. But, if a ban on sex selective abortion or a ban on sex determination is indeed instituted, then wider social change promoting women's status in society should be instituted
a. India has a difficult social issue to have an abortion if it is the female fetus of a family who wants boys. The market leader in India is under the spotlight because campaigners against the practice are going to spread ultrasounds machines. This major problem faces legal hurdles, government scrutiny and thorny business problems which is one of the world’s fastest growing economies. 927 girls for every 1,000 boys compared with 945 in 1991. GE agrees that bringing or expanding more ultrasounds machines will increase the number of female fetuses, while in U.S. the purpose of ultrasound during pregnancies is to produce images of fetuses or internal organs for a range of diagnostic purpose. Which means that a number of males and females born
A Post-Modern Critique of Marvin Harris Marvin Harris’ text “Death, Sex, and Fertility: Population Regulation in Preindustrial and Developing Societies” is reviewed and critiqued in this paper from postmodern standpoint. Marvin Harris was a leading proponent of the cultural materialist theory, which is used in “Death, Sex, and Fertility” to explain population regulation in terms of infrastructure, the component of society dealing with the modes of production and reproduction used by a people to enhance their survival and social wellness. Modes of production (MOPs) are the ways a people produce their means of subsistence, ranging from hunting and gathering to intensive agriculture. Modes of reproduction (MORs) consist of practices that affect reproductive processes that can then affect birth and death rates of a society. These modes include topics such as the care of offspring, the treatment of women, prolonged lactation, and sex, with deviations into abortion, infanticide, and the costs and benefits of child-rearing. In the review section of this paper, each chapter is separately summarized in relation to the MOPs and MORs they mention. The chapters all focus on different periods of time to further explain how contextualized MOPs and MORs are. The critique portion of this paper examines “Death, Sex, and Fertility” from a postmodern theoretical perspective. Basic differences between cultural materialism and postmodernism will be discussed.
The article starts with the debates of the authors with Paul Ehrlich who in his book “The Population Bomb” published in 1968 made some predictions caused by population growth. But in writing, Ehrlich did not consider technological change and the growth of free enterprise across the world. He did not foresee the fact that population would gradually shrink due to birth rates decreasing. Using logos arguments, the authors provide the reader with a comprehensive analysis of the misbalance in demographic situation. For example, the authors used such arguments in Russia: “Its adult population is expected to fall from 90 million to 20 million before the end of the century” (Habeen and Leven as cited in Ramage 469). That means in Russia the general population of Russia will drop dramatically. Also, in different parts of the world it is the same story with dropping population. In Japan, “The number of deaths this past year exceeded the number of births” (Habeen and Leven as cited in Ramage 469). To illustrate that this problem is not of local significance the author uses the pathos argument “The baby bust is ravaging Europe and spreading to the developing world” (Habeen and Leven as cited in Ramage 470). This means in more developed nations such as the United States we are seeing more babies being born. The combination of logos and pathos arguments in this fragment is very effective; it makes the reader interested in the article from the first paragraph. One of the phrases state
Rationale According to the latest concluding observations of Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), article 14 of Maternal Health Act 1948 is problematic since it states that ‘[t]he women are required to get content from their spouses in order to obtain an abortion’ (CEDAW,
The Governments notions of modern family differs from the local’s traditional ideals of family .In order to change the local culture from having traditionally larger families for social security, to smaller ones, governments implement a national family planning program. Family planning programs are most commonly applied to areas with high birth rates such as China, India and java in Indonesia, in attempt to lower population, however, in the case of Greece’s family planning, it aims to reduce women’s abortion rates. In many countries, governments have ulterior motives for reducing population, some are positive, aiming to increase women’s health but most commonly the case is that families only provide economical benefits and development for the country. A decline in population means that the government can invest more “per capita in education and health, thus creating the human capital for sustained economic growth” (S. Sinding, 08). The Government “planned population numbers in the same way it planned the production of goods” (Anders, 2014), which resulted in physical and emotional turmoil for families across the world.
Abortion is the big issue not notwithstanding for one nation yet its overall issue. In people group activity and assembly around the issues of maternal mortality and risky premature birth, men are seldom included as a particular target gathering of people or as communitarian
Artificial Reproductive Technology paper Artificial reproductive technology (ART) is defined as procedures which stimulate a woman 's ovaries to produce eggs, the eggs are then removed, combined with sperm, and then returned to a woman 's body (Bell, 2016). ART is becoming more and more popular throughout that globe. This method of conceiving children gives women who may be struggling with infertility options that were not possible before the advent of such methods. ART is relevant to the sociological definition of global health because it is evidence of the fact that our world has become interdependent especially when it comes to medical technology. However with ART comes the notion of the culture of disguise and in many countries this is an integral part of artificial reproductive technology process. With that being said, sociologists should look to study and understand the culture of disguise in ART as it pertains to global health and it shapes interactions between people and the society they live in.
