Justification of Sources

"Animals & Bioengineering."

Law, 9

10 Nov. 2007. Web. 30 Jan. 2012.


Initial Appraisal:


Although the article does not have an
author, it has been
produced by Duke University School of Law, and therefore the
school has taken responsibility for the content. I have found
the University's address as well as its telephone number. This
source is current for my topic, as bioengineering
ethics is a
serious social issue occurring right now. The source also offers
links to further in
-
depth resources.


Content Analysis:


The author is addressing college students and adults. I
know that the information is fact because it comes from a
reliable

source that specializes in the subject field. Given the
Kelly

amount of references in the article, it appear
s that it is valid
and was well
-
researched. The information also substantiates my
other sources because it discusses the debate of bioengineering
ethics.

The source offers both viewpoints on the controversy,
and I know this because it discusses what each opinion's strides
have been made to support their side. Emotion is not used as a
means of persuasion, and I believe that this is important
because the sou
rce shows indifference
to

the issue at hand.
