Rhetorical Analysis of individual rights vs. public health: the vaccination debate

“Individual Rights vs Public Health”.  http://web.mit.edu/angles/2010_Mahesh_Vidula.html

As you read the article, assess the rhetorical situation (exigence, audience, and constraints). That is, you should explain why this article was written, who it was intended for, and what may have made the subject difficult to write about. (Note: this may require you to do some secondary research. Be sure to cite any additional sources you end up using.) 
2. Read the article again. This time, identify how the writer appeals to his/her audience. Some questions you might address include: What values does the author assume that his/her audience shares? Does the author rely on patterns of deductive or inductive reasoning? Are there any logical fallacies? How does the author present him/herself as a speaker? Be sure to pay close attention to things such as figures of speech and word choice. How do these stylistic features contribute to the argument?
3. Write an analysis that includes a thesis which states the focus of your analysis (i.e. the author’s word choice, use of anecdotal evidence, etc.). In the body of the essay, you should provide textual evidence (direct quotations and summary of relevant passages) from the article that supports the thesis. Finally, in the conclusion of the essay, you should make an evaluative claim about the article. That is, based on your analysis, is the article an effective argument? 
The essay should be in MLA formatting (including in-text citations and a works cited page), double spaced, using 12 point Times New Roman font. The final draft should be 3-4 pages (750-1000 words).
