Feminism is necessary


This is an important debate topic that can be sometimes difficult to discuss. I am here because I am a proud feminist and I am the head of my debate team so I am forming my arguments. Please be respectful. I know there are only 2000 characters available. That is because I believe this debate can be held without extremely long arguments. There are also multiple rounds so there will be a chance to say everything you want to say. Please keep in mind that this is meant to be a respectful debate. I'd...

Christianity has had more positive than negative effects on society and the world.


The burden of proof is on me. If I can prove that Christianity has helped the world more than it has hurt it, I win the debate. If I cannot, I lose. The rounds will go as follows: 1. Con accepts the challenge. 2. I will list and explain the positive effects of Christianity, and Con will list and explain the negative effects. 3. Rebuttals. 4. More rebuttals, defend previous arguments. 5. Conclusion....

Woah, woah, woah. Hold on. You said, "if a woman is more likely to die during abortion, then it should be legal." But, that's the woman's choice. That's her risk that she's taking. No one's forcing her. Also, that's not true. A woman is 1 in 100,000 likely of a chance to die during abortion. There's a 1 in 10,000 chance of dying during child birth. Hey, I may be completely wrong, but also, if fetus's have life, then how come it's only allowed to do abortion in the first 3 months of pregnancy, wh...

Are Same-Sex schools better for education?


Hello. I do not think same-sex schools are better for education because in order for the world to go-round it takes people of different ages, genders, and races and schools are a good way to start to introduce children to this. Especially when it comes to group work all different genders call for a great group. You are basically restricting girls to only have girls as friends and boys to only have boys as friends....

On balance, jury nullification in the United States is just


This debate is for the Autumn tournament, round one. Resolved: On balance, jury nullification in the United States is just. Some definitions: Jury nullification is defined as the practice of a jury nullifying a law by returning a verdict of not guilty even though they believe that the defendant is guilty because they believe the law to be unjust. On balance: with all facts considered. I will define justice as giving each their due. What exactly is meant by "just" may be a point...

Ethics of Mass Effect #1 - The Rachni


I decided to start this, much in the same line of bsh1's Star Trek debates, to start a series of debates about Mass Effect. I love Mass Effect not only because of the rich storyline but also because of the tough ethical questions and dilemmas that the game forces you to face down and confront. This debate series is intended to replicate those questions and debate about the proper course of action between the two options that the game presents to you.

Should Women Have the Option of Abortion?


First, let me start of by saying that this is for practice. The definition of abortion is: "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy." I think that women should be allowed to have an abortion because no in should be forced to carry a child they don't want. Most religious people argue that life begins in the womb. I find this to be partially true. Yes, physical life begins in the womb, but actual consciousness begins after t...
