The article Woman Denied an Abortion in Republic of Ireland was Raped was published on August 18th, 2014 on the BBC News website. It describes what happened to a woman (her name is not mentioned due to privacy policies) who was raped and got pregnant after it happened. This particular woman demanded to have an abortion, after being eight weeks pregnant, but the health staff categorically refused to end her pregnancy until they could safely remove the baby by caesarean section. According to the law, in Ireland, it is illegal to get an abortion.

The news article I chose for this assignment is titled “Fresh Doubts Over a Texas Execution” by Maurice Possley on August 3, 2014. This article, which was published in The Washington Post, covers the story of a man named Cameron Todd Willingham who was sentenced to the death penalty in 2004 for the alleged murders of his three young daughters in 1991. In the article, Possley writes that Willingham was with his daughters when his house suddenly caught fire.

People are born into different beliefs and therefore there opinion on worldly controversial topics is probably different as well. For example, the view on death penalty is a controversal debate and is mixed all around the world. Death penalty also known as capital punishment is defined as the practice of executing an individual as the punishment for a specific crime after conviction by a court of law. In the USA, the death sentence is legal in 32 states and Texas got the highest death sentencing rates (Death Penalty Info. Center).

          Thanks to revolutionary advancements in medicine, today, millions of people have the chance of surviving diseases and accidents using donated organs. There are millions of people who are waiting for organ donations to save their lives. Unfortunately, a high percentage of these people do not receive the help they need due to few of organ donations. This issue has been discussed, debated, argued, but its resolution has never been achieved. I believe that families shouldn’t be allowed to stop doctors from retrieving organs from a consent dead patient because of ethics.

Capital punishment has raised many moral issues for decades. In the article “Capital Punishment in America: Dismantling the Machinery of Death”, published by The Economist on April 26, 2014, two points of views are raised concerning the death penalty in the United States. As the article mentions, the United States is one of the few remaining wealthy countries to still use the death penalty as a form of punishment.

Should we have the death penalty in Canada? The article that I chose was on the topic of capital punishment (death penalty) in short what this article talks about is the removal of the death penalty in Canada.  They talk about the leaders that were in place and what they did to remove the death penalty. They also talk about how in fact we did use the death penalty and what we did to the person that was getting executed.
