Issues essays / Feminist Frontiers
Feminism is defined as an organized activity on behalf of women?s rights and interests. To me, this statement encompasses all women; regardless of race, class, ethnicity, sexual preference, age or religion.

Blatantly sexist laws and practices are slowly being eliminated while social perceptions of "women's roles" continue to stagnate and even degrade back to traditional ideals. It is these social perceptions tha...

It has been discussed in many public circles whether or not the N.Y.P.D. should or should not be monitored by the Justice Department. Many feel that some of the recent cases of brutality and corruption have warranted some sort of intervention by the Government. I believe that we should be opposed to a federal monitor. To be constantly watched over by a body such as the Justice Departme...

Issues essays / Facing Racism
Martin Luther King Jr. was assasinated for trying to end segregation. Rodney King was beaten in the streets because he was black. These are just a couple examples of hate crimes caused by race. Racism is really another word for ignorance. It's another way of saying that nature should have had only one type of flower or tree. It's another way of looking at the world with your eyes c...

Issues essays / Euthanasia Today
Euthanasia has been, and always will be, a controversial moral and ethical subject.

Issues essays / Euthanasia
Euthanasia is clearly a deliberate and intentional aspect of a killing. Taking a human life, even with subtle rites and consent of the party involved is barbaric. No one can justly kill another human being. Just as it is wrong for a serial killer to murder, it is wrong for a physician to do so as well, no matter what the motive for doing so may be.
