Due to unforeseen MLK events, the schedule has shifted:

For Monday we will move on to animal experimentation. The first thing we will discuss is by Tom Regan called "Empty Cages: Animal Rights and Vivisection." It is attached, and I will give you a print out of it in class Wed. OPS writing assignment on it is due Monday as well.

Wed. we will discuss Peter Singer's "All Animals Are Equal" chapter and "Tools for Research" from Writings on an Ethical Life. There is an OPS assignment on those due Wed. And I would like someone to present on these chapters -- i.e., give a very careful presentation of Singer's reasoning. Jamal volunteered to do that.

I gave you a writing assignment (paper 2) as well on abortion, cloning and/or stem-cell research.
