  1. Before anyone can help you with a thesis, you need to let us know what your plan or outline looks like, even if you think it's very rough. No one can dream up a good thesis statement out of thin air!!

    Post your outline when you're ready.

  3. Long books have been written on when it is legal to kill. You are not going to cover it in a single essay, unless you scope it down. I wonder also, if you have thought this out, and have a plan.
