Euthanasia delves into moral, ethical, and personal issues, which is where most opposition comes into effect.

“Little Women” Juliana Queiroga 12/17/98 The book “Little Women” was written by Louisa May Alcott in 1867. Louisa May wrote “Little Women” based on the life she actually knew. In the book you can find things that relate to her life, like Jo’s painful beginning as an author and Beth’s death, which was based on the lost of her own sister of the same name.

Drug Legalization However, drugs should not be legalizied because there would be an increase in drug abuse due to its availability. Legalized drugs would become cheaper and more accessible to people who previously had not tried drugs. Addicts who tend to stop, not by choice, would not stop because drugs would be more accessible if legalized. The result of drug abuse is thousands of addicts in denial. The good news is that the United States had 286 million dollars and 81,762 drug seizures due to

Flight Man has always been fascinated with flight. As soon as there were forms of communication, sculptures, carvings, and paintings of beings with wings appeared. From the winged bulls guarding the halls of ancient Persia to the winged horse Pegasus from Greek Mythology, the idea was clear and simple. To fly is to conquer, to dominate, to be as a god ( Josephy 11- 12 ). These early individuals dreamed and experimented with the idea of flight. In the modern world many people take flight for gran

Adolescent Depression: The Under Acknowledged Disease Depression is a disease that afflicts the human psyche in such a way that the afflicted tends to act and react abnormally toward others and themselves. Therefore it comes to no surprise to discover that adolescent depression is strongly linked to teen suicide.

American Dreams The American Dream is different for everyone, though it is most commonly associated with success, freedom, and happiness. The concept of the American Dream seems to have dwindled from where it was in the past few generations.

Animal Rights At the University of Oregon, Barbara Gorden-Lickey, Ph. D., sewed kittens' eyes shut and forced them to jump from a height onto a platform surrounded by water so she could study the effects of sight deprivation on the brain.
