Homicide is the deliberate taking of a person"s life by another person. If someone commits homicide, they can be put in prison for a life sentence, or under certain circumstances be executed. Abortion is the deliberate "procedure" of taking an unborn baby's life. The key word is deliberate. In both cases however, someone"s life is taken by another person on purpose. In 1973, the supreme court"s decision over Roe Vs Wade effectively legalized abortion in all fifty states, opening abortion clinics...

4 Convincing Arguments for the Existence of Slender Man Slender Man is a faceless, supernaturally tall man in a business suit with extendable arms or tentacles for those of you living in a North Korean media blackout and have missed all the recent news surrounding the "Slender Man stabbings". It began as an admitted online fictional creation that spawned a "lost footage" series on YouTube. Slender Man is an entity whose motivation is never explained and, much like my ex-husband, enjoys stalki...

Should Prisoners be allowed to vote?

Oreo1088
Joey888

I believe that prisoners should get the chance to vote if they please. People think they should not get the right to vote because they broke the law or did something terrible. Some of them may have been committed for a crime that they didn't do or just a minor crime. A certain person if they get into office may or may not help improve prisons. That's a lot of votes that could possibly be casted if they allowed them. It would count towards what ever state that they were imprisoned in. They are pe...

Does the website "PolitiFact" have a liberal bias?

ConserativeDemocrat
BWhite

I'm too lazy to write rules. I have seen this multiple times; the website Politifact haas liberal bias. Evidence? They rate more claims by conservatives false then they do liberals. To me, this doesn't show any bias. It just shows more conservatives say false or ludicrous things. For example, Donald Trump is often fact checked, which will obviously increase the amount of false conservative claims. For example, Donald Trump believes climate change is a Chinese hoax. Liberals just don't say th...

Stephen Colbert is Not a Reliable Source of Information

Amedexyius
Voodoo1

Round 1: Opening Arguments Round 2: Rebuttals Round 3: Finishing Statements Before I begin, let me point out my flaw, I have only watched one Stephen Colbert episode and I didn't watch all of it. By reliable source of information, the criteria is information that with minimal amounts of bias attempts to distribute truth of world, local, and national events for the public to analyze and be informed of. My argument is that Stephen Colbert is not a reliable source of information to man...

The Cincinnati Zoo is allowed to shoot the gorilla to preserve a human life.

DebateWonder
SirSocrates

This is referring to the shooting of an endangered gorilla to protect the boy. I believe that the zoo did what was necessary to save the child's life, even though it is tragic that the gorilla died. I thank my opponent for joining this debate, and I will be eager to debate him/her. Rules: 1. No forfeiting. 2. No swear words....
