In this next essay, you will be examining and analyzing an issue, and the people/groups who support it and oppose it. You will select an issue which has mainly two sides.
Identity can play a huge role in what issues a person supports.
Identifying as part of a specific religion, political group, social class, ethnicity, union/career, etc, effects what issues people support. This can be based on people following what the group believes (like when many members of a religious group oppose abortion because of the teachings of the religion), making decisions based on what would benefit them more (like when supporting an issue will result in lower taxes for a specific group), or a combination of both.
