Roe v. Wade was a decision by the Supreme Court with no reasonable Constitutional basis


Roe v. Wade was the most egregious case of judicial activism in American history. The Supreme Court is supposed to INTERPRET the constitution, not MAKE UP RULES FROM THIN AIR, but regrettably the justices used their exalted position as to do just that in Roe v. Wade. I will be proving that Roe v. Wade was an egregious decision that had no constitutional basis. In other words, the decision was wrong. Please can I have someone debate this who is willing to actually examine the majority opin...

Lastly many people join these parties purely for money and support and i would be better if the fed...

Should the movie 'The Interview' have been banned in the first place?


-First this is NOT a debate about N Korea or blackmail by hacking. I agree that both are bad.

Not saying they're the same thing, of course, but we do have laws that limit free speech when public safety is at risk. Public safety is at risk here (regardless of how muc...
