We are pro-abortion. This topic was picked because we watched the news and seen the laws that Alabama and Missouri has passed on their views on abortion. There is pro’s and con’s to this serious topic, and ever
I think women should do what they want to their bodies and it should be their choice. At the end of the day women will end up taking care of the baby if they decide to keep it, no one else will do that job for them and if they take away abortion women will find unsafe and harmful ways to do it.
Rukiya, this is such an important topic today. It’s a topic that’s seen as taboo so a lot of people choose not to speak on it, which is the complete opposite of what someone should do. One that is not afraid to do so is https://www.globalfundforwomen.org/womens-human-rights/ which provides different aspects of women’s rights. This post reminds me of a lot of different discussions I’ve had with my friends, since we are all very eager to see change in this area. Do you think there will be change for the better in the future? I’m excited to see more ideas on this topic.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
