  It has been a long time since the homosexual couples have fought for their rights and for the respect they deserve as individuals. Nowadays, many countries have legalized same-sex marriage and many places in the world have even developed a gay village. However, this path leading to equality does not please everyone. In Russia, for example, the government does not even recognize the same-sex couple parents as legit. What interested me about this title is that it wants to remove from a child the love of his parents.

A 19-year-old student was allegedly anally raped when she unknowingly had been given a date-rape drug. She then went to the hospital where she was denied treatment due to the fact that she seemed to be intoxicated. That second time, the Washington D.C police were called because “D.C requires hospitals to obtain a statement deeming sexual assault credible before issuing a rape kit.” Even after police were called there was no rape kit. The woman is now suing the hospital she went too, though nothing else has been reported.

  Throughout the years, there had been a lot of debates surrounding all types of inequalities. For instance, in the province of Quebec, it is only in 1944 that women were allowed to vote and, therefore, obtained a juridical status as high as men. However, that does not keep women from suffering injustice. What is more shocking is to know that the level of freedom same-sex couples or simple homosexuals have today can be compared to that of women back in these days where they were told whom to marry.

Physical and mental health problems are sadly part of the reality that one probably might face one day or another.

I do believe that mixing alcohol with gambling would worsen the problem.

In his book “God's Law” published earlier this year, Republican candidate for the Arizona state of representatives Charlie Fuqua calls for the use of the death penalty on rebellious children. In the book, Fuqua acknowledges that parents do undeniably have a love for their children, but means could be implemented in order to allow rebellious children to be put on death row. While this is only a theory, and will most likely never be institutionalized, I do believe that this is an ethical issue worth discussing. I believe that it is immoral that any child was to be killed for any reason.
