Reproductive issues for asian-american communities
April 16, 2012 § 1 Comment
After discussing in class about this essay I was still in shock of how a government could control the amount of children a woman could have. I understand the reason for this matter but to limit the amount of children being produced is just very invading and wrongful of the government. Although in this essay they discussed the issues of the asian-american communities that were getting neglected by the doctors. I agree with the fact that if we were not comfortable with the doctor or nurse taking care of us because of different gender or race for the asian community. I feel as though America should respond to these issues because they are reproducing and it can lead to abortions. I have always been pro-life in the matter of abortions but hearing how the women in their communities are being neglected would lead them to go through with these procedures.
We also talked about the language barriers in our discussion. I understand their is a language barrier but having someone translate or even speak the language will make them for comfortable and susceptible to visiting the doctor. Healthcare providers should be more aware of more asian populated or any race populated community in order to provide for the need of those in that specific community. They should have the option of male or female and some type of doctor that they feel comfortable with. The government has to many restraints over the communities and these issues need to be resolved.
