Monday April 26th

OK guys,

Your debate is tomorrow.  The topic is “Bio-ethical Issues regarding Research Time and Money spent on Rare Genetic Disorders as compared with Common Diseases.” You should have what you need for research in the websites on the 2nd Lorenzo’s Oil worksheet.  If you need more research material, a simple Google search should provide more than enough info.

Remember, you need to have research to back up your arguments.  It would be best to print the research and highlight specific data within the papers for your arguments.  Everyone will be required to argue based on their research…this will be your grade for the debate.

Make sure, when forming your opinion, to take into account cost, who pays the cost, who is responsible for care giving and who is eligible for treatment.  These are a few ideas you can use, but feel free to have your own arguments as well.  This is your opinion based on your research.

After the debate, you will turn in BOTH Lorenzo’s Oil worksheets.  These grades are seperate from your debate grade.
