Abortion

historyrocks

I do think that abortion should be allowed but for the purposes of a good debate, I shall be playing devil's advocate. Since life begins at conception, abortion is akin to murder as it is the act of taking a human's life. Why should people be given the death penalty in America for just one murder, when doctors are forced to do it as part of their job many times, and are not even put on trial? Round 1. Basic statements Round 2. Main argument Round 3. Rebuttals...

The world is a cruel place. A place so cruel that you fell for my click bait title. Or did you? but now that you're here, let's talk about the tomato farms in northern china. These farms are special. They belong to a farmer called old man bob. I am arguing for fat mans sake. Bob watipee is the new superman. He managed to save 14,000 tomato fields from extinction. Because of bob, the population of tomatoes have grown by 53%. But there is a problem. PEOPLE ARE NOT BUYING HIS TOMATOES!!! They are o...

All zoos should be banned

Saquap
TheCanadaBreach_2

This house believes that we should ban zoos on global scale as it has been proved that animals in captivity live for less time than animals in the wild. Some zoos are also trying to conserve the animal and help it to regain its numbers however keeping animals in captivity is not the right way to increase animal population. Instead we should just create numerous, very large wildlife reserves, where the animals are allowed to roam freely and thus they will have a higher chance of breeding because...

Sugary Drink Tax

AOCPS
ConserativeDemocrat

I am against sugary drink taxes. This means that you are going to be pro and will support sugary drink taxes. You can include anything that can help you, so you are NOT limited to only just health issues. Here's how this debate will go. Round 1: Acceptance. Don't start your case, just say you accept and then we can start making our arguments in round 2. Round 2: Make arguments. Round 3: Rebuttals on main arguments. Do not make any new arguments unless absolutely necessary to make your...

Should abortion be legal?

JimShady

Hello, Jim, and thank you for accepting my debate about this wildly controversial subject, first let's lay out some groundwork1. The first round can be your first argument round2. Religion stays out of this debate, it isn't viable to bring up in a morality argument3. We are not arguing if you can kill a fetus "days before birth", because not only does a minute percentage of people think that is okay, neither do it, it is not representative of the message...

Should recess be longer?

I am competing not to get bragging rights, just to have fun. I think recess should be longer because you don't get hyper in class. Also, you have fun, so you get a break from boring stuff....

Surrogacy saved my life

I was struggling with infertility issues for a long time of my life. We've been trying a lot of options but nothing has worked for us. we thought we would never feel the happiness of parenthood. After some time of searching and decisions we made up our minds for this option. I know this is a quite hard issue to accept because it invokes moral aspects but I believe it to be a miracle. I'm so grateful we earned a needed sum of money and started our journey. I even don't want other people telling...

Should we allow euthanasia

historyrocks
TheProfessor88

If the patient is in a very bad physical state and the doctors have said there is nothing they can do and the patient would be in constant pain to still be alive then the patient should be able to choose as long as he is in a fit mental state. "The right of a competent, terminally ill person to avoid excruciating pain and embrace a timely and dignified death bears the sanction of history and is implicit in the concept of ordered liberty. The exercise of this right is as central to personal auto...

Laylaa

The debate is whether fat tax should be implemented. Fat tax is defined as a form of sin tax implemented on unhealthy foods that are linked to obesity. The motion is limited to first world or developed countries as these are the countries facing high level obesity and would benefit from such taxes. Fat tax is proposing tax on food and drinks which are considered unhealthy. These foods are believed to increase the obesity levels. "Fat tax" is another form of sin tax - taxing on items such as c...
