Consider possible topics for the Argumentative Research paper. Be creative. Avoid broad, frequently-argued topics such as the Death Penalty and Obesity. Present at least three topics, and of the three, select one. Based upon that one topic, create a sentence Outline that includes a well-defined thesis statement (claim), at least three points to support your thesis statement, and at least one counter argument. Conclude this outline with a sentence that indicates how you might respond to the counter argument.

1. Would you test a new skincare product on your child just to test if it has a side effect on their skin? Hopefully, your answer is no. If it is, then why would we test them on other innocent creatures like animals. Anything with a beating heart should have their life valued as much as our own.
Animal testing is an aged practice that should be a problem of the past. Today we have new inventions and discoveries happening daily. If we can create prosthetic limbs then we can create an imitation skin that we will be able to test products on and get similar results. Switching to this practice can save millions of lives, and still give the wanted result.
You must be thinking, what about cost? While it may be costly to create this skin or human like organisms to practice and test products on rather than finding a bunch of rats, it is our job as humans to celebrate all walks of life and preserve our furry friends on this planet.
Doubts I often hear is that the imitation skin/testing practice cannot give as close or good of a result as an actual living creature can. This is definitely a possibility, but with technology evolving daily it is a small factor that can soon or has already been diminished.
Teenagers should not be allowed to date until they turn 18 years old to prevent sexual abuse in young teenagers, to prevent dependency on a significant other, and so they can focus on their grades.
Not being allowed to date at an early age will not make a teen deprived, as a social life will be allowed under certain conditions. Friendships and relationship are very different.
