Assignment # 6: Provide Examples
Compose one or more paragraphs within which you support important generalizations (a generalization is, for example, a statement such as “People do change their thinking and attitudes about animal experimentation.”) with representative examples or illustrations to make such generalizations convincing or credible.
When using outside sources, SEE THE “APA TAB” IN THE COURSE FOR DOCUMENTATION GUIDELINES.
FOLLOW THE MODEL and examples given, and be sure to refer to your evaluation guide/ rubric for where you will earn or lose points.

Stem cell research is a highly controversial, highly debated subject. When scientists first began to study stem cells, the information provided to the public about the topic was not nearly as vast as it is today. In fact, what we now know about stem cell research can, and has, caused some people to change their stance on the issue entirely. In some instances, it has caused entire states to change their stance. For example, according to the University of Michigans Stem Cell Research: Overview (2013), on November 4, 2008, Michigan voters approved a proposal that would overturn a law dating back to 1978 (para 1). The University of Michigan (2013) explains that the old law prohibited the use of human embryos for research, even if those embryos were to be discarded (Stem Cell Research: Overview, para 1). The use of stem cells for research under the old law was not allowed under any circumstance, not even if embryos were just going to be thrown away. The new proposal, however, is in favor of further research on stem cells stating that researchers in Michigan can now derive new embryonic stem cell lines in labs and use human embryos for research permitted under the federal law (University of Michigan, 2013, para 2). Clearly, the state of Michigan has changed which side of the law it stands on when it comes to the matter of stem cell research. With further study and new information, more and more laws may be overturned to support stem cell research.
