Description : In Matters of Choice, Iris Lopez presents a comprehensive analysis of the dichotomous views that have portrayed sterilization either as part of a coercive program of population control or as a means of voluntary, even liberating, fertility control by individual women. Drawing upon her twenty-five years of research on sterilized Puerto Rican women from five different families in Brooklyn, Lopez untangles the interplay between how women make fertility decisions and their social, economic, cultural, and historical constraints. Weaving together the voices of these women, she covers the history of sterilization and eugenics, societal pressures to have fewer children, a lack of adequate health care, patterns of gender inequality, and misinformation provided by doctors and family members.
Description : Life . . . A Matter of Choices was written to help us actively participate, as spiritual beings, in making good choices. The Bible calls us "small gods" because we are made in the image of God. We all make choices daily without realizing it. The totality of these choices shape our lives. Some choices are made on your behalf with or without your input, especially between birth and adolescence, some you deliberately make. Whatever the case may be, they all add up to determine how you end up in life. We are made to operate the way God operates to enable us fulfill individual purposes. The totality of good choices brings one to God's perfect destiny. On the other hand, the result of making wrong choices brings failure and ultimate destruction. The book goes deeper in teaching the processes involved in decision-making as a tripartite being. I trust as you read you would be blessed with the grace to choose what is right in the sight of God so you can walk in His will to fulfill your perfect destiny. The book makes reference to biblical characters, discussing their choice-making processes and the actualization (or nonactualization) of their divine destiny and purposes based on their choices. The book also discusses how managing human feelings and senses influence decisions because life is matter of choices, not chances.
