Female Circumcision Among the Olinkans
[ send me this paper ]
A 14 page research paper that is based on the premise that the author is a nurse who is spending a year as a health practitioner to the Olinkan tribe. The author must state a position relative to the subject of female circumcision, a practice of the Olinkans.

In making this argument, the writer uses "Tashi" from Alice Walker's "Possessing the Secret of Joy" as a case study. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Naturopathic Diet And A British Diet: How They Differ

Osteoporosis And Exercise: Potential For Injury
[ send me this paper ]
7 pages in length. Along with a proper diet and adequate rest, exercise is one of the most vital components of a healthful body. Indeed, exercise has become the watchword for optimum health in this ever-conscious society. Yet one cannot help but wonder if too much rigorous exercise has the potential of actually damaging the body. For example, a female marathon runner might be doing her body well by avoiding the inherent risks of osteoporosis; however, if the athlete already has the disease to some extent, how does exercise detrimentally impact her condition over a long-term basis? When one considers the fact that osteoporosis is a bone disease that causes bones to thin and weaken, eventually becoming so brittle they break from even minor injuries, it is easy to understand why the endurance level of a marathon runner - along with the level of strenuous exercise - could indicate serious injury. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Partial Birth Abortions
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Considered by some to be nothing more than a veiled lack of responsibility, partial birth abortions have come to the forefront of controversy. As if abortion, in and of itself, was not a hot enough issue for debate, both the procedure and reasoning behind partial birth abortion are under fire. Women whose fetuses have known birth defects most commonly utilize this highly invasive procedure as a means by which to terminate the late-term pregnancy. After the baby is purposely turned in the breach position, the doctor pulls it down through the birth canal until the only part left inside the mother's body is the head, which legally maintains its fetus status. The brain is then suctioned out and the skull crushed before the body is completely expelled. Indeed, the primary arguments about this particular procedure revolve around the status of personhood, as well as the reasons to even employ such a horrific alternative. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The Complexities of Abortion: The Issues of Choice Verses Right to Life
[ send me this paper ]
A 6 page discussion of the many issues surrounding abortion. Notes that despite the common perception of abortions being sought by strictly irresponsible women, the choice to have an abortion is not always cut and dried. Such choices can involve pregnancies resulting from rape, illegitimate pregnancies, pregnancies in which the mother's life is endangered, and pregnancies in which the fetus has been determined to be malformed or diseased. Concludes that governmental intervention in these issues is not the solution, that the real solution lies in allowing women to decide on an individual basis whether an abortion is the appropriate course of action. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Women and Drinking in the 19th Century
[ send me this paper ]
This 5 page report discusses women's alcohol consumption in the 19th century, especially during the time of the temperance movement. In 19th century Great Britain, alcoholism was widespread, due in part, to the harsh social conditions brought about by the rapid industrialization throughout the country. Many families were suffering as a result although such suffering was most often associated with a drunken husband and father rather than an alcoholic wife and mother. In the U.S., the first organized temperance movement began in the early 1800s in response to dramatic increases in production and consumption of alcoholic beverages, which also coincided with rapid demographic changes.
