G.limon
L.Quezada

Abortion has been around for years for a way for women to not have to give birth to a child but many disagree that it should be illegal as it is wrong. I disagree with this statement as their are many reasons why it should stay legal. Procon stated on their website on February 1st, 2017 that women can control their own bodies and have the right to do whatever they want with it including abortion. This allows women to pursue goals they want to achieve without the obstacle of having a child....

Pokemon GO is well known to get gamers to walk around the neighbourhood to play the game. The Virtual Reality game actually uses the Global Positioning System to keep track of the player in the real world merging it with the virtual world filled with Pokemon. But the focus they put on their phones could lead to dangerous situations that could cause accidents int he middle of the road or construction sites. It is very dangerous to the players and the passer-by. In case of emergencies, if th...

Creationism is more Logical than the Theory of Evolution

debater12332
Danielle

I will be arguing that Creationism makes more sense and is backed by more evidence than the Theory of Evolution. Creationism: the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution.
