Satire Essay
In today’s modern world, there are many controversies, and one in particular catches my attention: embryonic stem cell research.

Some people are ok with this, but many people are highly offended and think it is insane to kill babies. My question to them is why? Why are you so highly offended? The use of embryonic cells is only a matter of survival. It is much like the case of Count Ugolino. Count Ugolino and his kids were locked in a tower by his friend who betrayed him, Ruggieri. He was locked in la Torre della Fame, the Tower of Hunger. Count Ugolino was starving and so were his kids and they died before him, so he only did what he had to survive. He just ate his children.

It is also very important to kill babies… I mean use their cells for research. We have to cure old people. Old people are dying every day from the horrible disease of Alzheimer’s. It eats their brains away and eventually they forget everything. Luckily, scientists have found a cure. By...
