The penny may have sounded like a good idea when It was invented, but except for certain transactions of "$22.01" it isn't necessary. The penny costs more than it is worth to make! Sure, it would cause a ripple in the world of money, but we can get over that!...

There is one definition we need before starting this debate to remove any ambiguity. Minimum Wage- The lowest wage permitted by law [1] Please note that this debate is only over a government enforced minimum wage. This is why I have left out the part of the definition talking about special agreements. Any attemp...

Resolved: The evidence supports the Abortion-Crime link

16kadams
Nivek

== Clarification == For those unaware, there has been a supposed link between abortion and crime rates. The argument can be found in Freakonomics and Levitt and Donahue 2001. As the theory goes, as abortion becomes liberalized, crime rates will decrease. == Rules == 1. Forfeiting a round will be counted as a concession 2. Arguments should be visible within the debate, sources can be placed in an outside link if needed 3. PRO will have the BOP to prove that abortion decreases crime...
