            Aims of Argument

            “Stem Cell Stumping” by Anne Applebaum shows political speeches about stem cell research and how the politicians use that to their advantage during election time.  Some politicians make it sound like stem cell research is illegal so once they are elected they can “lift the band” to save thousands of sick and unhealthy people.  The chapter says that unlike what the politicians hint, stem cell research is both legal and that it is funded by the national government. “The federal budget in 2003 included 24.8 million for human embryonic stem cell research – up from zero in 2000” This shows that in only three years, the federal government made huge improvements in this area of scientific research.  When it comes to private funding for stem cell research, it might go into the tens of hundreds of millions of dollars.  It was the push of the Clinton administration that allowed further stem cell research to be done.  In the reading it was said that society needed to make the difference between science and “magic.”  Magic is a parlor trick and even with unlimited amounts of funding that does not mean that it is a concrete solution.

 

Example sentence from another sample:

Jenkins explains that the goal of terrorism is to create the maximum damage on an enemy.  Jenkins states, “This has the dual effect of encouraging the enemies of the state, realizing that Israel is not as invulnerable as it may appear, while forcing the Israelis to realize that even their military can be challenged” (322).
