Topic: Animal Rights Issue

Research question: Has animal rights issue gone too far?

Working thesis statement: Do animal rights organization take it too far, when it actively encourages a vegetarian diet as a way of life? Yes it’s taking it too far by ignoring the value of nutrients that meat can offer our bodies.

Research plan: I plan to conduct my research on the issue if animal rights organizations have gone too far in promoting a vegetarian diet. But also on those who do not encourage this and the importance that meat has. Some of the sites I will be using are http://www.prairie.org/, http://digitalcommons.csbsju.edu, and other resources.
