There are a lot of basic benefits of IVF. There's a good amount of people that are unable to conceive a child, and IVF will allow them to do so. Not only does IVF allow couples to have a child, but single women and same sex couples as well. IVF will also provide them with a sperm donor if needed. If a parent or a woman's IVF cycle is unsuccessful, the embryos from other people may be donated and be used to enable the embryo recipients to have a child. People undergo IVF for several reasons; so...

Natural beauty is more important than having make - up on

kikiming888

Natural beauty is more important than having make up on. I think that we should embrace whatever we are given by god and not modify it. A light touch-up is fine, but not heavy make-up that totally changes your whole image. What is the point of hiding behind a mask the whole time, pretending to be someone else? Be yourself, embrace it and be confident. Beauty is not so much on the outside but on the inside. Besides that, why should we put chemicals on our face? This might put us to a higher risk...

Kids should have smartphones! The reason I'm saying that kids should have smartphones is that it fun to learn with technology. They could also communicate with their classmates. And e-mail homework or class work to their teacher. They could also use it for social media to make new friends. So I think that kids should have smartphones....

Should cell phones be permitted in school

Hamlind

I believe cell phones should be permitted in school because students could use them for educational purposes, to ward off boredom during free periods, and for safety. With the variety of educational apps available, technology in the classroom is an effective teaching/learning tool. Most students carry their cell phones anyway. Why not utilize them within the classroom learning environment positively. Many school districts do not have the funds available to provided computers or tablets for e...

Is there a God?

Spekx
ThreePointOneFour

This first round will be an acceptance round and arguments for this round will not be accepted. I would ask that any opponent who accepts argues the reasons why there is no God through reason and known science (sources must be cited). I want a respectful debate void of mudslinging and name calling, a debate that focuses on the known facts and pure reason....
