The urgent issue of the modern society. Are you for or against abortion?

Angelina_S
CosmoJarvis

Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, over 58 million unborn children have been killed, more than the entire population of Spain. That's 155 babies per hour. About 1 every 24 seconds. God"s plan for them will be ruined forever. Can we remain indifferent to such immense human slaughter? NO. So please let's discuss this question in more details. I personally completely agree with the words of Megan Clancy, who claims: "There are women who are raped and become pregnant; the problem is that th...

Are dress codes sexist

daemualpha
jdwest9817

,Dress codes are mainly geared towards girls. Dress codes are unfair to girls""and underestimate boys' maturity. It suggests that school"s priority is to create an ideal learning environment for guys, while ignoring factors that may help girls learn. Boys should learn how to control themselves at a young age. The problem is not of girls dress and sometimes, but rarely, guys. Also, in a time where so many girls dislike the way they look, which is in middle or high school, schools should not e...

ABM is a positive movement in DDO

CosmoJarvis
GoldFyre

This will be a short debate on whether or not ABM should be allowed in DDO. I will take the position of Pro. I do believe that ABM should not be banned on DDO, and should be allowed to continue its (rather outrageous) practices. ...

This house supports the Dakota Access Pipeline.

There is a lot of controversy surrounding DAPL. Most of it surrounds the land the pipeline will be built on. The neighboring Native American reservation is concerned because it borders their water source and an old burial ground. Unfortunately the land has already been destroyed. As such it should be put to good use. !st I bring to you the simple economic benefit. It is very costly to transport oil by rail and diesel as we do know. Building the pipeline will drastically decrease the cost of dome...

Women should have the same rights as men.

Jadyn.V
Fernyx

Women should have equal rights as men, as it says in the Constitution that everyone is made equal. Many women around the world can't even go to Wal-Mart without their husband's permission, for pete's sake. They're forced to marry strangers, and at a very young age. This is outrageous and people need to give women the freedoms they rightly deserve....

Europe should stop accepting Syrian refugees

BlargArgNarg
theobjectiveobjective

This is my first debate, so I'm kind of confused, anyways. I believe that Europe should stop accepting Syrian refugees. This can be proven through statistics. Last year, Europe accepted about one million refugees, and since then, there have been numerous terrorist attacks, all of which had something to with Islam. The refugees are also about ninety percent able bodied men, which is incredibly suspicious. Besides, when the USA had a civil war, our men didn't run away to other countries, they stoo...

Should Dogs Work?

YourLeftNut

http://www.readworks.org/passages/should-dogs-work-0 Dogs are meant to be pets. They live short lives compared to humans. They should be allowed to enjoy all of their days. Dogs are meant to be companions, not workers. Service dogs are put under too much stress. Their jobs are not fun. Some service dogs are servants. They do things like opening dresser drawers and pulling their owners' wheelchairs. Guide dogs for people who are blind and other servant dogs are not put in danger. But pol...

No, a government should not prioritize the humanitarian needs over national interests. A government still has an obligation to uphold its self-interests and more generally the best interests of its citizens, regardless of what melt-downs may be occurring in the outside world....
