Good Morning,

Chapter 7 Risk assessment for marijuana dependence or abuse is not a problem for me. I can not lie when I was younger I did smoke marijuana and you might have said I had a little bit of dependence for it. It was a huge part of my life in my teenage years. My friends smoked it some of my family smoked it. But for 25 years now I have not touched it and chose to teach my children to not touch it either. I have a 21 year old and a 15 year old, I would like to hope that from my husband 's and my influence on how drugs have a negative effect has kept them from even trying and also they make the choice not to associate with anyone that does.

Before that I was on the birth control pills, I feel because of this I may adequately express my opinion on this subject. I feel that it over all allows women to be healthy as possible before they become pregnant, which leads to a healthier pregnancy. Some birth control pills contain folic acid, taking this leads to a healthier pregnancies and healthier babies. Folic acid helps some risks of serious birth defects. Birth control also lowers the risk of unplanned pregnancy and abortions. Many abortions can be prevented if people used their heads. I am not pro abortion or am I for abortion either. I feel that some have reasons for their choice in having one and that their live is theirs. But I do feel as a baby anysize in the womb are babies and we should realize that we are making a life whether in the heat of the moment or not and if we do not intend to care for a child we need to take all measures to insure that we are protected so that "accidents" may not happen.But not only for pregnancy reasons, birth control pill has benefits to a woman 's menstrual cycle and helps lower some types of cancer. Having said this I do not feel it is only the woman 's responsibility, the use of birth control is not only for pregnancies, it besides abstinence is the best way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases. People get caught up in the heat of the moment and do not think about that when they

    The NIPT should not be done on expecting mothers who are considered a high risk or already been tested for Down syndrome because it will present a false positive stating that the baby could have Down syndrome. According to Merryn Ekberg (2007) article, “the greatest benefits gained from prenatal genetic testing are the prevention of the birth of the child with chronic genetic disease and offering prospective parents a degree of liberation from reproductive risks.” (p. 67) The most important benefits of the prenatal genetic testing include: giving the mother the opportunity, or option to have an abortion, if there is any degree of being at risk in reproduction; it prevents the mother from giving birth to a child who is special needs and medically fragile; and it prevents emotional distress and financial struggle of giving birth to a child with genetic issues, or health conditions. It also gives the mother the opportunity to prepare or plan for the future of the child’s needs. There are several risks to having the prenatal genetic testing done which can include: the intervention of private lives, reproductive freedom loss, and discrimination of disability, sexual, racial conditions, and wrongful deaths. “With over 8000 single gene defects that affect at least 1% of the adult population, the demand for prenatal genetic testing is rapidly increasing.” (Ekberg, Merryn (2007), p. 68)…

    Let’s say the mother isn’t trying to get pregnant, but she ends up accidentally messing up her birth control. She doesn’t mean to get pregnant, she won’t be able to survive the pregnancy, and therefore, the fetus has very little chance of survival. This makes it absolutely okay for the mother to get an abortion. Some people may argue that the fetus still has a chance at being born, so getting an abortion doesn’t seem like the only option. They think that if there is a chance of survival for the fetus, there should be measures taken to ensure a life for the fetus.…

    It also has substances that protect the baby from certain diseases and illnesses that formulas do not have. All in all, breastfeeding is undeniably healthier for the baby than bottle-feeding and much more efficient. Even if the mothers wanted to continue breastfeeding, their fear is stopping them. The benefits of breastfeeding should be enough of a reason for people to not bother a woman who is breastfeeding. Laws need to be put in place for the mothers who were wrongfully kicked out of public places.…

    True, abortion may be effective, but at what costs? The right to physical integrity gives freedom to women and any unwanted invasion to her own body. If a pregnancy is unwanted, and the woman has to continue and have the child anyways, it could cause serious physical and mental problems to her personal well-being, but getting an abortion does not get rid of any physical or mental problems destined to come, and if she did not want to get pregnant that bad, then she should have been…

    There has been a long existing debate of “Pro-Life” versus “Pro-Choice” about whether or not women should be able to abort a child. Many people being Pro-Choice will use the argument that the fetus isn 't a living person, and rather that it is the woman’s body; therefore the woman’s choice. There are other options women have such as adoption: waiting until the baby is born and providing the child a well-suited family to properly care for them. I believe any way you can avoid aborting a child is better than abortion because you give the child a chance for life. An unborn child in the womb contains all of the characteristics for it to be considered living, proving abortion is morally and scientifically wrong.…
