Birth Control Controversy

Birth Control Use

The technology and legal influence in the medical reproductive affect the means to control the population and maintenance of the social and culture aspects in the society. As a nurse, the challenges of administering the birth controls has been challenged by the cultural factors and human rights issues especially for the women with special conditions. These factors have led to hindrances in the utilization of the methods of birth controls for women with HIV and the drug addicts. The dilemma leads to the justification of whether women experienced challenges with drug abuse, HIV positive or experiences income welfare challenges use birth controls. However, the considerations of the risks that come with having the child must be considered hence the involvement of the controversial dilemma on birth control utilization. Sexual and reproductive challenges experienced by the minority groups addressed above should not affect their choices (Wilcher & Cates, 2016). However, the observation of family planning determines the success in the growth of the conceived infants. Technology development provides various techniques in sustaining the reproduction, but on the other end humanity, consideration remains a priority.

The use of the birth control depends on the woman’s decision through the consultation of experts on the challenges likely to be experienced upon conceiving. It is however justified for the women experiencing challenges in coping with life to consider the use of birth control methods in sustaining the population and economic status. In consideration of the challenges of humanity in sustaining a larger population experiencing health and economic challenges, the control measures are considerable (Cornford, et al., 2015). The choice of women with HIV, for instance, depends on the ability of the family to take care of the children. Failure to embrace the birth control technology affects the population sustainability and the spread of HIV. The use of the controls facilitates the control of the economic status through family planning, health in the society through advice to mothers with HIV and finally helps the drug addicts to adopt better life challenging them to have a better family after they turn to be clean and responsible.
