Introduction

Does everyone have the right to be a parent? In this essay I am going to address a complex ethical dilemma, I will do this by looking at both sides of the argument, I will conclude by giving my opinion. Everyone does have the right to be a parent; there are many reasons for this side of the argument. Firstly, it is a natural urge for humans to want to have a baby and become a parent as it is in everyday life, it is always around us and happening around the world, when a new life is born it is simply because it is a natural urge to start a family and settle down as parents and to have the traditional family life. Secondly, if no human wanted to become parents the human race would die out within years. It is extremely important that everyone does have the right to become a parent as, if people did not, the human race would die out and there would not be a future. ...read more.

Middle

The second point for this side of the argument is that not everyone has the right to become a parent because people who are having sex at a young age very often do not know the risks of sex and how easy it is to become pregnant. Young people do not have the right to become a parent too young an age. It is not fair to bring the child into the world where the baby's parents cannot look after and care for it properly. Parents at such a young age often just give up the child and place the baby into care and leave the baby for someone else to care for. This is not fair on the child as it will have a life of neglect and pain just because the parents could not cope with them at their birth as they are simply too young. Another side to this argument, is that there are people who are dependent on drugs and alcohol. ...read more.

Conclusion

The child would be in danger. These reasons are why I believe that not everyone has the right to be a parent. I have now looked at both sides of the argument, why everyone does have the right to be a parent and also why not everyone has the right to become a parent. I believe that not everyone has the right to be a parent, this is because of the reasons I stated earlier, due to the poverty in the world, young parents who struggle coping with the child and lastly because of paedophiles. I have strong views on why they do not have the right to become parents, I believe that not everyone has the right to become parents because I believe it is not fair on the child to be brought into a world of pain, neglect and suffering. The child would grow up wondering what it has done wrong when it is not the child's fault and they often put the blame on themselves when it is not them, it's the parents' selfishness.
