  1. This website doesn’t have credible sources, but it gives some good ideas on what to say back to some con arguements. It might be worth looking at.

  2. I really didn’t like this topic at first, but after doing all the research on it I’m starting to like it. See, at first I agreed with the con, but I didn’t really like the con case. If that makes any sense at all. Now, after researching, I both agree with the pro and really like the pro case. I love it when that happens.
