Physician assisted suicide (Euthanasia)

chipstudent

The right to life is perhaps the most basic and fundamental of all our rights. However, with every right comes a choice. The right to speech does not remove the option to remain silent; the right to vote brings with it the right to abstain. In the same way, the right to choose to die is implicit in the right to life. The degree to which physical pain and psychological distress can be tolerated is different in all humans. Quality of life judgments are private and personal, thus only the sufferer...

PM1066

Fast food restaurants are in eventuality causing a lot of health problems for the country and skyrocketing the national medical bill. Fast food - food prepared quickly, with little regard to nutritive quality. sell - to advertise and cater for, to transact with monetarily This is not my first round and the opponent may simply state the understanding of the motion so that we debate three rounds fairly....

Arcanas

It's about time that I tried a serious debate (without forfeiting), so might as well. I will use the same rules as Bsh1's debates, albeit slightly altered to my tastes: Rules: 1. No forfeits 2. Any citations or foot/endnotes must be individually provided in the text of the debate 3. No new arguments in the final round 4. Maintain a civil and decorous atmosphere 5. No trolling or semantics 6. No K's of the topic 7. My opponent accepts all of the following definitions...

Everyone should have the right to decide whether or not surgical procedures are performed on them, especially when it involves the permanent removal of part of their body.

If the baby boy wants to be circumcised, let him make that choice when he is old enough....

abortion should be legal if rape or incest

singin_abbey
Arcanas

Waking up everyday with that child having to relive that situation over and over again. Yes, God wouldn't want you to kill a child but he wouldn't want this to happen to you also. F.Y.I- I am not saying that killing a baby is alright. I am against killing a baby if you are just playing around....

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, may have many benefits, but could also have some negative effects on patients. For example, reveling extreme emotions and focusing on negative emotions after a traumatic experience may cause depression and lead to suicidal tendencies rather than actual improvement....
