Prompts to help guide your response:
*This article is an example of what we call "competing claims." On the one hand, pharmaceutical companies claim they need to charge so much in order to pay for the development of new drugs. On the other hand, the cost of those drugs is beyond the means of many people, and this is compromising the health of our nation.
1) Which of these claims do you feel is stronger, and why? (This would be a good spot to work in some direct quotation to support your claim.)
2) Respond to the final paragraph about the "dark side of clinical trials."
To receive credit, you must include the following:
1) At least one direct quotation from the article itself to support a point you are making, and
2) A direct reference to someone else's response to show you are continuing the discussion online.
