I am so glad that this is our last paper. Writing papers has always been stressful for me because writing is not really my strong point. Anyway, for the issue paper I am considering 3 different topics. The first topic I am considering is abortion. I am thinking about using this topic because it has been a worldwide issue for years and it can easily be argued for or against. My arguments for abortion would possibly be that it is better for the mother to get rid of the child than to keep it and not take care of their motherly duties. On the other hand my argument against abortion could be that instead of choosing to end the childís life the mother should consider adoption. My only concern with this topic is that itís very typical. I want to write about something that everyone knows about but not something so common. My second option for the paper is the death penalty. I am considering this mainly because I am interested in learning more about it and the laws supporting it. This topic has also created quite a bit of controversy over the years. I have not yet figured out what my arguments for the death penalty would be, but my argument against would be that every life is valuable no matter crime has been committed. The third topic is child exploitation. I am considering this topic because I personally have an issue with the toddlers and tiaraís television show. I know that we are not supposed to pick sides and each side of the argument should be counted for equally and I will do my best to keep things neutral. I would use the toddlers and tiaraís show and child modeling as my example from which to form my arguments. My argument against this topic would be that the child is not being allowed to actually have a childhood because often times it is the mothers who are forcing the child into the television and modeling business. Just like my last topic I have not yet found an argument for child exploitation so this will be a challenging topic for me.
