    • Madi, I love this topic I think it is so interesting. I love how you incorporate the history of the Basques and how they were pushed to the unknown. I think it would be super cool to look at how the Basque language was incorporated into other languages. The wikipedia page on the basques has a section on how it effects other languages that could be helpful. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basque_language

    • Madi, I think you wrote a great piece of abortion and enjoyed how you used the specific stories to show both sides of the debate. Although I enjoyed reading it, I am interested in why you used an example from outside of the US. If you were trying to establish a global view of abortion here is a resource on how the abortion laws in the US have effected the rest of the world: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5318220/. I would be interested if you wrote another article on this with more facts that support both sides of the argument. All being said, this was an interesting piece to read.

    • Madi, I appreciated how you discussed both sides of the debate, because I believe it made your argument stronger. The discussion of both sides can be helpful for both readers and the development of the argument. I found this article https://www.thoughtco.com/arguments-for-and-against-abortion-3534153 to simplify the debate surrounding abortion. I look forward to reading more of your writing.

    • Great job in this post Madeline. I really liked how you gave background of the topic as well as providing information into what euthanasia and medical marijuana are. I think that if you tried to mix the two topics together it would give the writing a little bit more cohesion for a more even flow. I liked when you said “the right to death is as important as the right to live, a natural right, and should be granted to each individual no matter what their circumstance. ” This was a very strong statement that gave your writing a kind of sturdiness that makes you trust the topic.
