Furthermore, this purpose should be presented in a manner that makes it dramatic and attractive, so it stands out from any written debate on the subject

Can we define Beauty Can beauty be defined by age, gender, colour, body shape or size? Who gets to decide?
Inspiration for my idea Katie: my beautiful face Bums, Boobs and Botox Embarrassing body Jessica Simpson- the price of beauty
History of beauty There is evidence that a preference for beautiful faces emerges early in child development, and that the standards of attractiveness are similar across different genders and cultures.[ Symmetry is also important because it suggests the absence of genetic or acquired defects. The secret of beauty and attractiveness has been a quest of humans for as long as we have been civilized. Many women (and some "metrosexual" men) spend up to one-third of their income on looking good. Why? The idea of beauty has been developed through art and poetry.
It appears that people from different cultures share the same standards of beauty because they are innate; we are born with the knowledge of who’s beautiful and who’s not. Two studies conducted in the mid-1980s demonstrate that infants as young as two and three months old gaze longer at a face that adults judge to be more attractive than at a face that adults judge to be less attractive. Babies are wonderfully hedonistic and have no manners, so they stare at objects that they consider to be pleasing. When babies stare at some faces longer than others, it indicates that they prefer to look at them and find them attractive.

Series 2 Can beauty be measured? Discuss the idea is it fair that beauty should be measured as they have said if your face is symmetrical than it makes you beautiful
There are three main features that characterize beautiful faces: the geometric feature of bilateral symmetry, the mathematical feature of averages the biological feature of secondary sexual characteristics. They all indicate genetic and developmental health of beautiful people.

Its been said that the more beautiful you are the more likely hood that you will get a job. Does the media influence us.

Abortion. Do we have the right?
What is abortion Abortion refers to the termination of pregnancy at any stage that does not result in birth The law states that abortion is allowed up to 24 weeks in a pregnancy otherwise it is illegal unless the child or mother will be at risk.
The Finland researchers found that compared to women who carried to term, women who aborted in the year prior to their deaths were 60 percent more likely to die of natural causes, seven times more likely to die of suicide, four times more likely to die of injuries related to accidents, and 14 times more likely to die from homicide. Researchers believe the higher rate of deaths related to accidents and homicide may be linked to higher rates of suicidal or risk-taking behaviour.
Pro-choice This is the view that women have the choice whether they have an abortion or not. The argument is that the woman has the right to control her pregnancy.
Pro-life This is the view that human life should be valued from fertilisation until natural death. They argue that any actions that destroys a foetus is killing a human being. Many Christians are pro-life as they believe God is the only one who can take life away.
Risks of abortion Most risks of early abortion are minor, including incomplete abortion, continuing pregnancy, excessive bleeding, or mild infections, and can be treated in a doctor's office. Risk of breast cancer Risk of death- abortion pill though it works 90percent of the time
