What have I not learned in this class? Can I say a kick to the mouth and a blow to the brain is all I can say about this class? New terminology was something I grasp that I did not about the terminology with its definitions. In the moodule discussions, I knew bits and facts about things but never in depth to all the subjects that were discussed in class. Now, that the course is coming to an end, I take a stand back and say wow, how ignorant was I not to know much about the LBGT community. Going home excited to tell my husband about what I learned in class, him giving me the Scooby- Doo look and says what are you, learning? But, a topic that was brought up in class I took it home to give him a scoop on the inside about LGBT community. …show more content…
Unlike, his parents who are not susceptible to change would rather, disown on him because it may damage their appearance at their church. I feel more susceptible to the changes around us, another interesting fact I had learned was also abortions on chapter 6 page 160. I was in shocked seeing numbers, 40 million are performed annually also 80,000 deaths during pregnancy are the result of unsafe abortions it took shocked me. Obviously, I am not naïve and I know that people have them to whatever personal reason or situation they may be in but, a myth that I was always told that once you had an abortion that God would not allow you to carry a baby the second time once you’re ready. But, obviously old myths by my grandmother as to the book, abortions do not increase a woman’s subsequent risk of infertility, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy or having a birthweight baby.

As said before, I’ve read about it in different classes but, my daughter still wasn’t at that age until now. She shows of her body to me and I poke fun with her so she can feel comfortable with her skin instead of having her feel like me. Because, of how I was brought up that I needed to be covered from head to toe I am a conservative person of how I feel about my own self- image. I would not want to instill anything on my daughter like that as a matter of fact I said to her just stay naked. She replies with “No, I need to change, I need clothes.” In my mind I think to myself what makes her think or feel that she needs to be comfortable with clothes if I have never said or made a negative comment towards her about being naked. My last topic that is difficult is marriage. When I was single I never committed to anyone no more than three to four months than it was break up time because, that is what felt comfortable for me, but in every relationship I did have I was in it for the sex. When I dated my husband we had sex and we were going to break up do to a long distance relationship that I was not wanting to have so we married. But, even so the thought of now being married and stuck to one person did not sink in and I wanted my divorce, and him coming from a bible thumping background he did not for see divorce in his nearby

    Some people even tried to fight back against the legalization of abortion, by sending many Human Life amendments sent to congress to attempt illegalizing abortion once again. But none of the of the proposed amendments were passed (34). This affected so many people personally on how they felt about the issue. The bill called Right to Consequence was therefore passed to protect Doctors and Nurses from being forced to perform abortions (34). You would ask why a Doctor or nurse would not like to perform an abortion, most of the times it was against their religious beliefs.…

    “The abortion wars in America are typically cast as a battle between choice and life” (source 2) The views on abortion have changed from black and white to more complex issues and reasons. Shows how the ‘wars’ are changing its direction. An abortion because of medical issues to the baby should not qualify as reasons for the government to fund an operation because, it is not life threatening, and if it was not caused by rape or incest. A family, for example, was about to have a baby and we 're excited until they found out about its potential problems: "The parents would have it aborted it if they knew about the cleft lip.” (source 1) A baby being born with a cleft lip does not affect the parents well being at all. Since a cleft lip does not affect the wellbeing of the mother any government aid should be provided because it is solely a preference decision.…

    I eventually did say something stupid in my Bible study class since it was very new subject.

    According to the World Health Organization, “Forty-seven thousand women die from complications of unsafe abortion each year”. While these numbers are unsettling enough, with the outlaw of abortion these numbers will continue to rise. The debate of “Pro life” and “Pro choice” are the two sides of abortion that have split the world in half: this being a debate between morality, and free will. The outlaw of abortion affects the norm of society; abortion forces the usage of unsafe abortions, a rise in the already overpopulated planet, and a financial impact of the child’s mother (WHO). While no state within the United States has made abortion fully illegal, some states continue to constrict the rules that surround abortion.…

    It is also being seen as killing a life with some type of irrelevant excuse. In today’s society, abortion is becoming a huge argument and problem creator. About fifty eight percent of high school kids from Blue Earth are pretty fluent in what abortion is and most of them have their opinion on it already. While some believe that abortion should be legal for their individual rights, abortion is removing someone’s chance at life due to excessive procedures and the excuse of a possibly disabled child. To begin with, many believe that abortion should be illegal because it’s removing someone’s chance at life.…

    There was three doctors after Tiller that would continue to do abortions. These doctors were the most hated people at this time simply because when they first started doing these abortions, abortions were really never heard of. So people would say things about how they want to kill these doctors for performing these surgeries. As I watched these videos I just thought that the people were right abortion it should not be a thing, but as the video went on my thoughts changed. As they interviewed people and they talked about their reasons as to why they were having abortions and it made sense as to why these doctors were doing the things they did.…

    Using birth control was seen as a sin in the eyes of the church and women would be denied Holy Communion at mass if they had confessed to taking the pill. In taking the pill, women have more control over the size of the family. Families would be able to be planned, because of the pill. One woman stated, “family planning is very important because my husband does not earn big wages.” (Stearns, 1998, p. 375). This same woman had secretly been taking contraceptives behind her husband’s back.…

    The Right To Abortion

    Abortion prevents the mother’s or father’s life from turning for the worse. Various factors play into this decision which frequently is also benefiting the potential child. Having children costs lots of money and I certainly wouldn’t want to be born into a family that has to worry about paying basic medical expenses, education, mortgage and so on. The battle between pro- life and pro- choice activists rages on since the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Jane Roe in 1973, giving a woman a constitutional right to abortion under certain conditions. However, recently stricter abortion laws and social pressure deny women the right to abortion, completely ignoring the reasons for why they arrive at this decision.…

    Considering the fact that both the knight and his wife were virgins and they had been married for a year, their marriage kind of goes against the codes. While your married, the spouses are supposed to have sex to conceive children and that 's it, but because the knight was a virgin they couldn 't do it. I feel as though the knight couuld have been a bit more educated in the sex area, even though he was still a virgin. If he was more knowledgeable of this, maybe he would of never had to have a teaching session with his mother in law and the knights that stayed overnight would of never gotten…
