Frances Albers Ethics 2100 Winter 2016 For my Term Paper, I’m choosing to write about one of the most controversial issues facing our society today. About sixty-three percent of Americans believe that this subject is morally acceptable (The Statistics Portal). However, it is an alarming fact that an estimated 30 percent of all completed suicides relate directly to this subject (Bullying Statistics). My term paper will be written on the topic of “Homosexuality.” This is a very sensitive and touchy issue for some people. However, I feel it is important that everyone is educated on this subject. Homosexuality is defined as a romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior between members of the same sex or gender (Wikipedia). According to statistics, approximately 1 in 100 American women and 2 in 100 American men identify as being homosexual (The Statistics Portal). Not a single day goes by that this subject is not being discussed. You hear about this subject on the news, in school, on social media, in churches, and even in today's political debates. Homosexuality is being discussed daily and surrounds our very lives. But what exactly is the big issue and what are people actually saying about it? Thirty-seven percent of Americans do not accept or acknowledge same-sex relationships. A part of this percent includes people like Donald Trump and Ben Carson who are both running for the Republican Party, famous actor Denzel Washington, and country singer Trace Adkins (The Richest). Critics are saying

that homosexuality is wrong as it goes against the Bible. Many of these critics also believe that homosexuality violates natural law as a relationship should consist of a male and a female. Critics have even gone as far as saying that same-sex couples who choose to have families of their own are exposing their children to an unhealthy lifestyle. While on the other hand, proponents for homosexuality believe that it’s their right to choose who they are in a relationship with. They believe that they can offer their kids the same things that heterosexuals do and that homosexuality is actually not against the Bible. Who is right and who is wrong?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
