Should athletes be allowed to use performance-enhancing drugs (such as steroids or EPO)

Here is the list of options from which to choose your paper topic. The idea is to use the same topic for all three papers in this course, developing and improving your argument as you go. If you want to switch topics between papers or choose a topic not on this list, consult with your instructor first. It is also possible for your instructor to add other options to this list, so check the instructor’s announcements for any modifications.

For each argument, provide a brief explanation of the strengths and weaknesses of the argument. You might explain whether the argument is inductive or deductive, or you might provide a diagram of the argument. Think about how the two arguments compare to each other. Is one better than the other? If so, what makes that one better? Is each a fair presentation of what someone taking that position would say? Are the premises reasonable? How might each argument be made better?
