I believe I will run into a few challenges with this issue paper. When writing most of the papers I have done in the past, I have always had a hard time finding valuable and reliable sources that have a lot of information. However, since I am writing this paper on animal rights, which was what I did my annotated bibliography on, I have plenty of sources. One thing about this topic is that itís mostly one extreme or the other. People either feel all for animal testing or are very against it, so I believe I will have a hard time finding unbiased articles in my sources and using them correctly.
I have found some good information on my topic, but I am concerned that I will have a hard time making the page minimum. I have found some very useful points to use in my paper that goes towards both sides of this debate. This topic makes for a very good debate because there are benefits to both sides that make good points. After doing some research I was surprised at some of the information I found. For example, some of the stuff that happens to these animals in experimentation is very cruel and I was shocked to see what happens to them. On the website PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) they have a lot of information and do good job explaining the cruel acts that happen. On the other hand, I was surprised to see what has come out of testing on animals. We have had some medical breakthroughs and it has helped us in the medical field with many things. Since I have found points on either side that makes sense to why and why not doing it, I am unsure of which side I stand on. I hope after all my research I will come to conclusion on which side I will lean more to. So far I do not have any questions toward this assignment. Most of the questions I had were answered in class.
With these online the discussions, I believe the more questions the better, that way I have more to talk about making it easier to get the word requirement in. When there is just a few questions I find it very hard to make the word count and I feel like I am saying the same thing over and over again.
