Should the first amendment be aboilshed due to social media background checks?

Employers require social media background checks. So should the first amendment be abolished to better suit the labor force? I think abolishing the first amendment would benefit a modern, competitive work force. Employers are politically sensitive, so due to this, i believe the first amendment to be obsolete. In modern times, the first amendment is used by unemployable discontents who spend their time complaining about the system. I think the first amendment should be abolished ,or possibly modi...

Should euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide be legal?

NadezhdaR
Sakushi

The term euthanasia is becoming more and more popular and in some countries euthanasia has even been made legal. But I strongly believe that making it legal can have awful consequences. Firstly, physicians have a moral responsibility to heal people and to keep them alive, so euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide (PAS) contradicts the Hippocratic Oath they take. Those who have always given hope and tried to maintain us healthy should not be made into someone assisting death. Of course there a...

It is a very painful topic for women and men who find themselves facing the moral dilemma of whether or not to terminate a pregnancy. It's one of the most polarising moral issues - most people are on one side or the other, very few are undecided. I consider myself a...

Women Are Treated Unfairly

Nk2365

Women should be equal to men but they are treated unequally. For example, "Women are almost half of the workforce. They are the sole or co-breadwinner in half of American families with children. They receive more college and graduate degrees than men. Yet, on average, women continue to earn considerably less than men. In 2015, female full-time, year-round workers made only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 20 percent. Women, on average, earn less than men in nearly ev...

1 Round debates should not be an option on debate.org

I never really enjoyed 1 Round debates, since there's not really any point to having them. So I've decided to make this debate so maybe I could understand the benefits of 1 Round debates.Definitions:1 Round debate; A debate on debate.org that only lasts 1 round. Once the Contender posts the Round 1 argument, the debate goes into voting.Rules:1) Running out of time is not an option. If you can't come up with a rebuttal or arguments, just pass t...

Should Languages be taught in school well I vote yes! It helps them prepare for when they are older. For example, it Helps them get into a better college. Another example is, It helps them become better thinkers and better learners. One text even said, it gives the Cultural awareness of others! Another Reason might be that it's easier to learn at a younger age. For example, One parent wants to understand kid but cant because school is teaching at a young age so the children will remember foreign...
