The Ethics of the Unborn
In my research paper, I am going to try to write objectively because I don't really know my own opinion on the subject.
Another reason I am going to try to write objectively is because according to my survey, there are many different opinions about the subject. I think if I were to initially take a side, it would cause people who believe differently to sort of "shut out" the information I am presenting.
I want to concentrate more on defining, providing various articles, and showing what is affecting them legally. I think the most important thing I have found so far that I want people to know about is related to my survey results.
I thought it was interesting how on questions like "Do you know anyone who has had an abortion," "should doctors be required to perform abortions," and "should women past menopause be allowed to use in vetro fertilization" all had a very split vote, with close results on all sides.
However, some questions people had more similar feelings about, like "do you believe abortions are ethically ok," "Do you believe in vetro fertilization is ok," "Do you believe using in vetro fertilization to make designer babies is ok," ect. I thought seeing the varied and similar results taught a lot about how sensitive of a subject matter it is.
It showed me that I need to treat it really carefully in my paper.
