Abortion is Wrong

Hello everyone! I am taking the stance that abortion is wrong in every case except when the mother's life is in danger. I take a purely logical and ethical stance on this issue and no bible verses will be cited- don't worry. Be respectful, try and be prompt with your responses and we should have a pretty fun debate on our hands. Good luck!...

Prostitution should NOT be legalized!

queenofmayhem
Thoughtispower

Or at least, not entirely. Most victims (yes, victims!), a.k.a. prostitutes, are dragged into a ring during their most vulnerable moments. Whether they be teenage runaways or a single mom trying to feed three children, this path is rarely chosen by choice and nearly impossible to escape. I believe any prostitute (whether that be male or female) should be admitted into a rehab or hope program rather than jail. This will supply them with an escape route, a chance for a better life. However, whe...

Do violent video games contribute to violent or aggressive behavior or actions in our youth?

InFamous

Today I would like to debate a subject that has become very controversial in today's modern society: Violent Video Games.With all the violence and tragedies in today's society, many look for answers and solutions, such as what to blame for all of this violence, and many turn to violent video games such as first person shooters and violent role playing games.Now, I would like to point out that we are NOT debating if video games caused or contributed to the actions taken during th...

Any gun other than pistols should not be sold to citizens.

First off, I must say that I am not American so I am not familiar with any statistics or laws you may have. I will be defending a point based on logic, rather than sources. It would probably be hard to source in such debate anyways. I have seen quite a lot of people defend the availability of larger weapons - I will argue that they serve no use if you are but a citizen. As for the second amendment in America particularly, I must say that it is ridiculous anyone would be willing to use that...

School Uniforms Should not be Required

butterflyprincess3

I will be pro, you will be con. (You will argue that school uniforms should be required) Round one is for acceptance only.My opening statement: School uniforms shouldn't be required because they create a sense of anti-individuality, going against the Freedom of Expression, being forced to choose clothing can help prepare children for the adult world, and requiring school uniforms causes rebellion...

Gay Marriage: Yay or Nay?

Nonsensicality
somenerd224

Gay marriage is good. Some people would say that in the Bible, it rules against gay marriage, saying that 'any man who lies with another man is sinful', but it also says in the Bible as well that Jesus (you know, the guy who the Bible was practically based on) said to love unconditionally. And if you also view this topic from the religious perspective, if God created mankind, and created everything about them, and knows the past present and future, then He created homosexual people. And why wou...

I believe that the Nazis would have won the war if they had not invaded Russia. I ask that Con makes his arguments R1, then at R2 I will defend, and at R2 con will say, "Skip just as we planned", then I will argue at R3. Con defends R3....

Should heros (public servers like the police) be paid than other people?

zz71
9lsyh2rDaeXXYpeGCOlb

Heroes should be paid more than educators and actors because they risk their live to save others. It isn't just hard on him or her but also on their families. Especailly people that serve. Heroes provide safty for us. The least we can do is pay them more to help out their families. If you know or every see a local hero or someone that serves, take just 2 seconds of your day to thank them for all they have done, because some don't even make it back....
