Abortion - Birth Control or Legal Murder? Approximately 1.6 million murders are committed legally each year. With the exception of laws in few states, the mutilated bodies of the victims are thrown into dumpsters like pieces of rotten meat. While these victims lay waiting in the infested dumpsters to be hauled off to a landfill, the murderers are in their offices waiting for their next patient--the accomplice to the murder. This is the murder of an innocent child by a procedure known as abortion

Many of these verses reach out to man through teachings of human nature and how to create society's moral values. A personal favorite verse that may reach out to every man and not just those who practice the Judaeo - Christian religions is : The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor shall the children be put to death for the fathers; every man shall be put to death

Laws Of War
Laws Of War
Laws of War The term laws of war refers to the rules governing the actual conduct of armed conflict. This idea that there actually exists rules that govern war is a difficult concept to understand. The simple act of war in and of itself seems to be in violation of an almost universal law prohibiting one human being from killing another. But during times of war murder of the enemy is allowed, which leads one to the question, if murder is permissible then what possible laws of war could there

Ariel by Sylvia Plath The Ariel-period poems of Sylvia Plath demonstrate her desire for rebirth, to escape the body that was drummed into use by men and society.
