Preliminary Thesis:
-->“Genetic engineering should not be controlled by the law, because the people controlling the law are not credited on knowing about what it is they are controlling.” 1st Revised Thesis:
-->“The government shouldn’t have the power to control Genetic Engineering; because Government Legislators do not possess the adequate degree, and/or satisfactory knowledge regarding this unique study doctors, and scientists have spent years researching now. To allow a committee of Legislators whom have no dignified background knowledge and/or scholarly study the power to control this research study.“ 1.“The government should not have residing power over the field of Genetic Engineering; Legislators do not hold a proper degree to enable them to make prominent decisions on a matter that has been researched for years by Doctors and scientists alike.” 2.“The government should not have the power to control the field of Genetic Engineering; elected officials do not possess an adequate degree or knowledge regarding this unique study that is leading us into the future. Allowing a committee of Legislators whom have no dignified background in the subject to take control of an entire field of work would be detrimental to today’s society.”

Kryssana: I think your thesis statement needs a little more clarity.
First, when you write “the people,” who are you referring to? Government/legislators or another group? Be as specific as possible.
Second, do you mean that “the people controlling the law” don’t understand genetic engineering and what they might be vetoing? I’m not totally sure what your argument is.
