Abortion

Reading through my Criminology book I see that crime is subject to where you are.  In our country you are able to have an abortion, but in another country you cannot.  You can only have crime where there is a law saying it is a crime.

I found a news story about how the law saying Abortion is legal will turn 40 years old this week.  In this article there are some women who speak about how they wish they had not aborted their children and speak about the consequences of aborting their child.

According to Conflict Theory we as a country will always have conflicting feelings about abortion.  Is it wrong or is it right?  The ones who can convince the correct people  will determine if it is legal or illegal.

What caught my eye in this story is a new “study”, that they did not cite, that shows there are more abortions when it is illegal than when it is legal.  That seems concerning to me, well either way it is concerning.  I personally know friends who are not able to have children and I know they would love to have a child instead of seeing them aborted.

What are you thoughts about this “study” that the news forgot to leave out?

Criminology Class

Criminology: is the scientific study of the making of laws, the breaking of laws, and society’s reaction to the breaking of laws. -Adler, Mueller, Laufer

Currently I am in this class this semester and I will enjoy it thoroughly.  With that being said, I will be quite busy during this semester.  The professor has us reading, taking quizzes, tests, writing a 6-8 page term paper and he wants us to write three articles a week about current events. I know, I know, this is college so suck it up and get your degree.

Since I wanted to blog more this year, I figured I would write my three journal articles here and then copy paste to my blackboard.  Please let me know what you think about my articles and the journals, I will let you know upfront that some of these articles will be controversial.

Thanks for reading a dugs life.
