United Nations Declares Contraception Access a "Human Right"

United Nations Declares Contraception Access a "Human Right" | Juliet's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it
In the United Nations Population Fund’s (UNFPA) recent State of World Population report, access to contraception is described as a “universal human right.” While the report has no legal force, it declares that cultural and financial barriers to...

 

LBN:

In that case, food is a human right...are we to pay for everyones food too??&house and medical care&clothes??When does the demand for providing for the needs of others end?? Those who don't want to work hard to pursue life, liberty and happiness are burdens on society and cause the government to become their nanny and create a dependent state. The more dependent on govt society becomes, the less productive they become and eventually the less stable the economy becomes.

 

Socialism/collectivism/redistribution of wealth have been tried for decades in other countries, you'd think the US would learn from the past and the mistakes of others. But, not Hussein Obama and his administration of czars&incompetents.

 

Well maybe they are not so incompetent as they are intentionally trying to overwhelm our financial system and economy and bring the US down from grace. They don't think the US should be exceptional but on equal ground with third world countries. They see the US as a powerful oppressor who has kept the poor down in other countries, rather than as a humanitarian provider. Yet, the US is always the first country refugees&immigrants run to when they try to escape oppression, socialism and communism.  See http://2016themove.com for the best comprehensive overview of what makes Obama tick and why he has such an anti-American, anti-colonialism ideology.

 

Under Obama and his anti-American administration and policies we will all become equally poor, because everyone needs to "pay their fair share".

Juliet Stanton's insight:

This article is arguing that it does not want the UNFPA to make access to contraceptives a human right, particularly for young women. However I disagree as I think that being protected from STIs is as important as having sufficient food, water and shelter, especially in places where these infections are quite common. This relates to the way that we have been talking about the importance of contraception when having sex, especially before marriage.

Charli Morelli's curator insight, November 21, 2014 2:04 AM

In this article it is brought to our attention the argument is; that it does not want the unfpa to make access to contraceptives a human right mainly for young women. although it is a hard argument to take sides on however i belive that having sufficient food and water is equally important as being protected from STIs. Expessially in places where infections such as this are more common. This relates to the way that we have been talking about the importance of contraception when having sex, especially before marriage.

Surge in teenage sex

Surge in teenage sex | Juliet's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it
Surge in teenage sex...

AAP

As risky alcohol consumption among Australia's teenagers has gone up so has the incidence of sex "under the influence" and the number of partners, but not condom use.

A survey of Australian year 10 and 12 students has shown a surge in sexual activity over the past decade, and while awareness of HIV/AIDS remained high, so was the rate of risky sexual practices.

"Rates of alcohol consumption among secondary students have increased markedly, as has the proportion of young people engaging in sex while under the influence of alcohol and drugs," said Paul Agius, from Melbourne's La Trobe University.

Advertisement: Story continues below
"We also found that there is a marked increase in year 12 students having sex with multiple partners."

In 1997, one in five (19.6 per cent) male year 12 students reported having sex with three or more partners in the past year.

When the same question was put to young men in 2008, the figure had almost doubled (38.2 per cent).

For young women in year 12, those who reported three or more partners in the past year also jumped, over the decade, from 12.9 per cent to 27.2 per cent.

Mr Agius said Australia's rate of teenage pregnancy ranked among the highest in the developed world, while sexually transmitted infections among young adults has risen in the past 10 years.

The survey showed students continued to report "high" awareness of HIV/AIDS while awareness of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) also made a small improvement over the decade.

Young women also reported higher overall awareness of the risks of unsafe sex, showing the need for public health campaign targeting young men.

"It is concerning that students appear to be better informed about HIV than either STIs or hepatitis, which are more common," Mr Agius said.

The percentage of young men who reported using a condom for their last sexual encounter remained stable, at 71.1 per cent in 1997 and no improvement in 2008 at 70.9 per cent.

"Although consistent condom use remains moderately high, it is of some concern that condom use has not increased since 1997 despite related increases in sexual activity ... and increased rates of sexually transmitted infections," Mr Agius said.

The research is published in the October edition of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health.

This means that is it becoming more and more common fir teenagers to have sex, both willingly and under the influence of drugs and alcohol. However with this, the importance use of the use of contraception is becoming less and less.

Officials with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission said that if a bar wants to raise the drinking age to something stricter than state law, they have every right to do that.
Juliet Stanton's insight:

This article talks about a bar that made the decision to raise its drinking age to 26 to attempt to stop alcohol-induced violence, even though it probably means a large loss of profits. I think that more bars should do this so that people are more responsible and safer.

Teens Who Drink Alone Seek to Soothe Negative Emotions and are More Likely To Develop Alcohol Problems as Young Adults

Teens Who Drink Alone Seek to Soothe Negative Emotions and are More Likely To Develop Alcohol Problems as Young Adults | Juliet's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it

"Most teenagers who drink alcohol do so with their friends in social settings, but a new study by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh reveals that a significant number of adolescents consume alcohol while they are alone...Furthermore, solitary teenage drinkers are more likely to develop alcohol use disorders in early adulthood."


Via Barbara Wood, Ph.D. www.alcoholismandthefamily.com / Author of Children of Alcoholism and Raising Healthy Children in an Alcoholic Home
Juliet Stanton's insight:

This article explains how although there is an issue with teenagers drinking together becoming very drunk, there is also a problem with teenagers who drink alone to soothe themselves as they go through fights with friends, family and other emotional problems. These people actually end up drinking more than friends who only drink with others. I think that this is reliable information because it was found through a suds conducted by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University.

Barbara Wood, Ph.D. www.alcoholismandthefamily.com / Author of Children of Alcoholism and Raising Healthy Children in an Alcoholic Home's curator insight, January 24, 2014 9:32 AM


This study was performed by researchers from Carnegie-Mellon University and The University of Pittsburgh who  first surveyed 709 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18 and asked them to describe their alcohol use  during the past year. Adolescents were drawn from both clinical treatment programs and the community. Researchers surveyed participants again when they turned 25, and also assessed them for alcohol use disorders. This press release from C-MU notes that "38.8 percent of teens in the sample reported drinking alone during ages 12-18. This behavior was linked to unpleasant emotions, and solitary drinkers were one and a half times more likely to develop alcohol dependence at age 25."  The researchers concluded that,  "Because adolescent solitary drinking is an early warning sign for alcohol use disorder in young adulthood, and solitary drinking tends to occur in response to negative emotions, youth who report solitary drinking might benefit from interventions that teach more adaptive strategies for coping with negative emotions." 

Kim Warren's curator insight, April 20, 2014 9:42 PM

This article illustrates some of the connections about alcohol made in the class.  One of the connections is that drinking in some contexts is deviant.  In this case, they are, first of all, minors. Second of all, it leads to drinking more as an adult.  And third of all, it leads to further deviance the more the person gets addicted to it.

Many studies link light to moderate drinking (up to two standard alcoholic drinks per day for a man) to better health, but the science remains uncertain. Older men might consider limiting themselves to one drink per day.

Via Giuseppe Fattori
Juliet Stanton's insight:

This article reflects the topics we have been talking about because it says that drinking is a different issue for everyone. Some people are able to have much more alcohol than others before becoming drunk because they have different ages, gender, body types and other characteristics. It means that when people offer you unidentified drinks, you don't know firstly what is in them, but you also don't know how it will affect you specifically. That is why it is so important to not accept things you don't know the contents of.

There is a call for better sex education in Tasmanian schools after a report found many teenagers are ignorant about contraception.

Via Jacqui Connor
Juliet Stanton's insight:

Because people are having sex at younger ages, they are less educated about the dangers of not using contraception. Also, because people are not having sex in marriage situations, it is unreliable that the other person will support teens who have not used contraception.

Jacqui Connor's curator insight, September 27, 2013 8:51 PM

This Australian article shows how some teenagers are ignorant and un-educated about contraception, which is very dangerous because it will only lead to more teenage pregnancies. It mentions how 70% of teenagers did not know how to avoid pregnancy which is a huge percentage! They mentioned how many young women just always rely on the morning after pill and the attitude of 'i'll fix it later'- this shows how they do not know the risks, consequences and reliability of the morning after pill. It seems to them that this is the easiest, safest option- which it is not. The article says how Australian kids need to be more educated about contraception issues which when looking at these statistics I would agree. Though this article doesn't sound familiar to me at all- I have been effectively taugh about contraception and conception- I know all my choices, possibilities, risks etc. In the article they mentioned how many students feel embarrassed in sex education classes or just muck around which I think is a problem because I personally I feel totally comfortable and have so much fun in my PDH classes.

This article is very helpful because it can help me understand the issues of contraception in other parts of Australia and how other students feel about it.

The first few weeks of college are a critical time in shaping students' drinking habits.

Via Dimitris Agorastos
Juliet Stanton's insight:

This article says that if college students who are non-drinkers receive a parent-based intervention in the first few weeks of the semester, they are less likely to start drinking. Also, most heavy drinkers who receive either parent or peer-based intervention don't continue drinking, but if they receive an intervention from both peers and parents, they continue drinking. I think that this information is pretty reliable because it comes from an organisation which talks about the use of alcohol and drugs.
