JackNusenow

The debate is "Adolescents ought to be able to make autonomous medical decisions." My position in this debate is Con/Against. An autonomous decision is characterized by being an informed decision performed completely and solely by one person. Adolescents as a group are defined as ages 10-19 year old by the US National Library of medicine. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2794325/) At this point in life, the brain is not fully developed, and the adolescent is not able to make a...

Abortion

I haven't had a debate in a while so I figured why not end my dry spell with a bang and talk about a lovely subject with a member I found in the Opinions section. We seem to have opposing views on slaughtering unborn children, so we've talked quickly and decided to have a debate on this. We've already agreed on the rules, but to clarify, I'm going to be arguing that aborting an embryo/zygote/fetus before approximately 24 weeks of gestation age is okay

You never know what will happen to any child's life in a formidable family broken or other. That does not matter when deciding Wether to abort or not abort a child. The women made the choice to have unprotected sex the end. Should you spend your whole paycheck if you can't afford a medical bill to come up? Should you antagonize someone bigger than you in a fight. Should you miss work 3 days in a row and hope your boss. Ails you out and you can keep your job? Everything has consequences it doesn'...

bsh1
Varrack

PrefaceVarrack approached me about doing this debate, and I think it will be an interesting discussion. Euthanasia is an important question now more than ever, as more and more places begin considering the merits of some form of euthanasia. I look forward to an engaging and insightful discourse.There is a minimum of 2,500 ELO needed to vote on this debate. Debaters have 72 hours and 10,000 characters per round to make their cases....

SnaxAttack
PRO7471

The first round will be acceptance for this debate. There is no preference on who challenges me, as long as we both have fun debating with each other.Definitions:Euthanasia: The painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma. The practice is illegal in most countries.Legalized: Make (something that was previously illegal) permissible by law.
