Part I 

Part II: Logical Argument

“Before 1994, diabetes in children was generally caused by a genetic disorder – only about 5 percent of childhood cases were obesity-related, or Type 2, diabetes. Today, according to the National Institutes of Health, Type 2 diabetes accounts for at least 30 percent of all new childhood cases of diabetes in this country.”

Part III: Ethical Argument 

“Lunch and dinner, for me, was a daily choice between McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken or Pizza Hut. Then as now, these were the only available options for an American kid to get an affordable meal.”

Part IV: Pathetic Argument 

“Fast-food companies are marketing to children a product with proven health hazards and no warning labels.”

Part V: Analogy 

” There are no calorie information charts on fast-food packaging, the way there are on grocery items. Advertisements don’t carry warning labels the way tobacco ads do.”

Part VI: Ethical Argument for draft 

“Today’s 3-year-old Syrian orphan, it seems, is 1939’s German Jewish child.”

During World War II, no country wanted to welcome Jewish immigrants, not even children. In this era, we are experiencing the same kind of situation – with Muslims. The Holocaust left a clear stain of terror in history’s past. This event was a strict depiction of bigot actions, ethnocentric ideas and xenophobic thoughts however, it seems to be repeating itself, only this time – with Muslims.

Part VII: Pathetic Argument for draft 

Imagine you were forced out of your home, malnourished, deprived of a proper education and stripped of your human rights. Imagine you were treated like an animal – actually, worse than an animal- and left to die. This is what Muslim refugees experience on a daily. They experience the death of their loved ones – bodies shattered in blood and dismembered from limb to limb. Their reality is an average human’s nightmare. However, they are being refused from safety and shelter in America.
