RESPONSE TO CHILD BIRTH ISSUES 3
Responseto child birth issues:
Wouldthe international response be different if it were men who weresuffering and dying as the result of child birth?
Itis true that women have had to endure a number of challengesthroughout their lifetimes. These range from diseases, human rightsissues, domestic issues, child birth deaths and a lot of otherchallenges which hamper their growth. The international community hasalways come to their aid and has always sought to reduce their levelof suffering through various interventional mechanisms. I believethat the international community would still treat the matter withthe same level of urgency if were men who suffered and died due tochild birth.
Thereis no superiority between men and women regardless of any givensituation. Therefore, when it comes to addressing the issue ofsuffering due to child birth, there is a very high possibility thatthe international response towards the issue would still be the same.First, much progress has been made in terms of recognition offundamental human rights. Additionally, the society has made very bigstrides on the issue of equality. This therefore means that no genderis more superior to the other so as to receive more specializedtreatment. For this reason, the international community would notwant to be seen as biased in terms of its treatment of issues.
Deathdue to child birth is a problem which affects not only women, butalso their male counterparts. Men also suffer in a number of wayswhen women suffer or die due to childbirth issues (Middleberg, 2003).Thus, it would only be proper to allocate the same level of responseto either gender without any bias. The international community has onseveral occasions demonstrated its endeavor towards a peaceful and amore equal society. Response to child issue would not be anexceptional challenge whether it faces men or women.
