Abortion law Essay

Imagine that your law was enacted by the state or federal government and is now being challenged in court. Whether you support/defend your law or oppose/attack your law, you would be required to cite precedent for either cause. In this assignment, I want you to make your case using a previous decision from the court.


Start a new thread (discussion topic) and title it (in the ‘subject’ line) with the name of your law.
Begin the body (message) with the name of the case that you are applying for.
Use the rest of the message area to describe how the case supports or opposes your law.


  • You can choose any Supreme Court case.
  • You can support or defend any aspect of your law, i.e., the punishment your law advocates, the rights your law eliminates, the group your law affects, etc.
  • You cannot just name a case . . . you must describe the law that is defined by the case and explain why it applies to your law.
  • You may use cases that have been overturned/overruled.
  • You cannot use cases without real application to your law, ie. Miranda v. Arizona applies to the rotten teeth law because when the police arrest you for your teeth do not inform you of your rights (bad example, but I hope you get the point)
  • If you cannot find a case that applies to your law, you may choose to support/oppose someone else’s law. (you have to email me and ask for permission to do this)


The assignment will be graded on how well you apply the case to your law.
I will be judging 3 things:
1) What aspect of your law that you are addressing
2) The applicability of the case to that aspect
3) Your writing, explanation, and overall thoroughness in applying the law properly

Extra credit will be awarded for the following:

1) addressing multiple aspects of your law with multiple cases
2) responding to others with comments that criticize or elaborate on their application
3) creative application that is logical and correct
4) exceptional writing or analytical explanation

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort, and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized.

Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in, and make corrections as necessary. Often, having a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors is advantageous. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12-point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. Letting your essay run over the recommended number of pages is better than compressing it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted and double-spaced with a one-inch margin on each page’s top, bottom, and sides. When submitting a hard copy, use white paper and print it out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument. GCU Journal Of Health Care Organization Provision And Financing
