Such an interesting topic to choose. I definitely agree with you, that Euthanasia should be the persons choice and if society doesn’t see that, it still has a long way to go. I’d hate to see someone i loved in pain and if euthanasia was their choice, who are we to stop them.
Can’t wait to read the rest of your blog (:

Really like the quote you used here ! The use of your hyperlinks is really good as well as they help back up your argument. I didn’t realize so many people in America supported Euthanasia. But with so many people supporting this, it’s mind boggling that so many places still make it illegal. It is so unfair that terminally ill patients don’t have the right to choose. Why do they have to suffer when they don’t have to.
Keep it up (:

In regards to the Brittany Maynard case, it definitely wasn’t fair that she had to travel to a different state when she was terminally ill just because California hadn’t legalized Euthanasia. Cases like these make it more clear that Euthanasia should be made legal as it should be the patients choice and they shouldn’t have to travel so far when they’re so sick.
New Zealand is definitely on the right path, allowing patients that choice. I like how you used the Hippocratic Oath to back up your claim.

Public Transport Should Be Free For Tertiary Students:

April 30th 2015:
Wow. You just made me realize how much money i actually spend on public transport every week. I don’t know whether this is a good or bad thing.
But i definitely agree that public transport for tertiary students should be made free. I mean, we’re already paying thousands of dollars a year for uni. The student concession helps but not by a lot, especially when we factor in everything else we have to pay for.

I want to agree that we should get free transport to get to uni because that would benefit me a lot. But how would the government fund this ? With more tax for everyone else. That wouldn’t be very good for people who don’t get paid much.
If we did get our papers increased, isn’t that the same as paying for our transport? So shouldn’t we just pay for our transport instead of being more in debt later on ?
Great blog, Sam. Will keep reading (:

Death Penalty:

April 30th 2015:
Very interesting topic. I’m not sure how i feel about the death penalty. I’m half half right now. Should we respond to murder with murder ? I’ll follow the rest of your argument to see what your point is. It might help me decide what i think.

May 4th 2015:
The evidence you’ve used really helps to back up your claim. I like how you used statistics from America and NZ. It shows that it’s a relevant issue in more then just NZ. I’m still unsure where I stand on this issue. It’s hard because isn’t killing, in any context, killing ? Why should we be allowed to decide if someone lives or dies. It’s true that the murderer killed someone and made the choice for another but wouldn’t we be considered just as bad if we allowed the death penalty ? I do get where you’re coming from and I’m still in the middle. Good blog. Keep it up (:

Animal Testing:

May 6th 2015:
Really interesting topic you’ve chosen. I’m not sure if where i stand on this because if animal testing was illegal, wouldn’t the next step be testing on humans ? Really good points you’ve made and i’ll have to wait and see where you go with your argument.
A few things you should consider though, is changing your link into a hyperlink to support your argument and i noticed a few grammatical errors, you should check.
Other then that, great blog and i will definitely follow and see where you take this.

Tiger Parents:

May 4th 2015:
I really like the topic you have chosen. I definitely agree that this method of parenting will do more harm then good for the children. It also doesn’t guarantee their children success in the future and they could be doing more damage.
I will say you should be careful and read over your work before you publish as I’ve noticed a few grammatical errors throughout your blog. Also I was a little confused at the start of your post where you stand on this issue so maybe you could make it a little more clear at the start.
But overall, it’s a good blog and topic.

May 8th 2015:
Definitely agree that children need time to play and just be kids. Tiger parents need to realize that without socializing and gaining the social skills kids need, they won’t get anywhere in life. Studying is great for getting a degree but without social skills, what future business will they be able to get. The hyperlinks you use really help to back up your claim.
