SEE SPEECH OUTLINE BELOW: Peggy Harrell AC1306177 SP180: Principles of Public Speaking Assignment 6_06 August 4, 2014 Title: The Adoption of Genetically Modified Crops A. To educate my audience B. To inform my audience on the current state of genetically modified crops C. To inform of the various supporting arguments and ethical issues surrounding the adoption of genetically modified crops. I. Introduction a. The objective of the application of genetic modification in crops is to introduce new beneficial characteristics to crop species that do not naturally occur in that specie. b. Genetically modified crops engineering is conducted in the laboratory through a process of gene alteration where there is the addition of foreign desirable genes to a crop species’ genome: process of biolistic or agrobacterium tumefaciens method (Angelica, 2013). c. Despite the fact that the technology provides for a valid way at solving food shortages and hunger in many regions, ethical and social concerns have seen it remain unadopted and unaccepted by many states. II. Body of the Presentation a. i. Through crops genetic modification, there can be assured of food sustainability for all populations of the world. ii. This is especially crucial with the current rise in cases of climatic un-sustainability that does not support food production and livelihood within many societies. b. i. Ethical and social issues surrounding genetically modified crops have derailed its global adoption. ii. These are such as the use of genes from a bacterium or virus in the process of genetic modification in crops posses the risk of the development of a new disease strain, the contamination of the environment with the genetic species and other side effects, the colonization of other species, and the destabilizing the food chain amongst others (Kennedy, 2008). c. i. To establish safety in adoption of genetically modified crops, scientists have conducted various researches and publications in promoting the safety of the technology. ii. Also, scientific screening and analysis is done to the parent or donor genes and species ensuring that they contain no harmful disease pathogens or allergic components (Phillips, 2008). III. Conclusion While some view genetically modified crops as an effective solution to the hunger and poverty challenges facing many societies of the world, others express caution over is ethical and social risk concerns. The technology allows for the introduction of desirable characteristics to targeted plant species thus increasing their competitive advantage and productivity. Ethical concerns raised are such as the contaminations of other species, allergies, diseases, and the risks associated to the food chain amongst others. Various states should take individual responsibility in ensuring that their society is well in knowledge and common view of its adoption (Starr, Evers, and Starr, 2013).

(NOTE: The 3 Key Points in the Introduction are to be the SAME 3 Key Points in the Body.) III – Body of the Presentation – Summarize each of the three key points from the Introduction giving supporting material (2 statements with supporting sources) for each. This means research sources that provide credibility to your statements. Do not cite a website URL – site the name of the website (e.g. according to Reuters … not according to www.reuters.com) when giving resources to support the source statements in the Body. As an example: A. Main point #1. Young Americans are facing tough financial challenges. 1. One of the things that enable financial challenges is poverty. According to the United Nations Environment Program. 2. Another thing that enables financial challenges is debt. What’s your source for this
