Axia College Material Appendix E Critical Analysis Forms Fill out one form for each source. Source 1  Title and Citation: Research Using Human Embryos is Morally Acceptable. Singer, Peter. "Research Using Human Embryos Is Morally Acceptable."  At Issue: The Ethics of  Abortion . Ed. Jennifer A. Hurley. San Diego: Greenhaven Press, 2001.  Opposing Viewpoints  Resource Center . Gale. Apollo Library. 30 Nov. 2008  <http://find.galegroup.com/ovrc/infomark.do? &contentSet=GSRC&type=retrieve&tabID=T010&prodId=OVRC&docId=EJ3010012212&source= gale&srcprod=OVRC&userGroupName=apollo&version=1.0>. 1 Identify the principal issue  presented by the source. The principal issue that is presented by the source is:  Medical research that involves researching human  embryos (stem cells).  2 Identify any examples of bias  presented by the author. If none  exist, explain how you determined  this. There are not any examples of bias in this article. I  determined this because after reading the article the  author takes the “for stem cell research side” but does  not discriminate against people that are against it and  does not let his own personal factors alter his opinion.  3 Identify any areas that are vague  or ambiguous. If none exist,  explain how you determined this. Yes I did find an area that is vague. When the author is  talking about why the government will not use federal  funds to fund stem cell research, he does not explain  why the government will not fund the research. I  determined this because I found myself asking “why  won’t the government fund this research”.  4 Do you find the source credible?  Explain your reasoning. Yes, I did find this source credible because all of the  sources the author used were reliable and  knowledgeable.  CRT 205

5 Identify and name any rhetorical  devices used by the author. If  none exist, explain how you  determined this. The author used the rhetorical device parallelism. I  determined this because the author brings many very  similar aspects together. An example is: being that  stem cell research should be accepted because it can  help others and the embryo does not suffer. Also if  embryos cannot suffer there really is not a reason not  to perform research. 6 Identify and name any fallacies  used by the author. If none exist,  explain how you determined this. I could not find any existing fallacies in this argument. I  determined this after reading through the different types  of fallacies and the article multiple times.  7 State one argument made by the  author.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
