TheMarketLibertarian
TheUnexaminedLife

The resolution is that circumcision, save out of medical neccessity, should be banned in the US. This has to do with ethics- and I will be arguing from a Classical Liberal or Libertarian point of view....

Israeli School Trips to Auschwitz Should be Banned

Emilrose
TheUnexaminedLife

By Israeli school trips I'm referring to excursions with high school students from Israel, and Auschwitz-Birkenau is a former concentration camp from WW2, located in south-west Poland and now open to visitors. As Pro I will be arguing that students from Israel should not be permitted *organised* trips there, Con will of course be arguing the opposite. Character limit is 8000, first round acceptance, then opening arguments, rebuttals and closing arguments. TheUnexaminedLife will be arguing...

This is my first real debate. I will be arguing that Nazi Ideology is better than Capitalism. Some definition first.

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...

Should abortion be abolished or permitted by law?

TatianaGu
July7654

The abortion debate asks whether it can be right to stop a pregnancy before childbirth. 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...

Abortion

TeenDebater0236
Swindenland

Whether or not you're a religious person, abortion is wrong in all ways. Recently, I wrote an Argumentative Essay about abortion. I am stunned by all the evidences that it is wrong. The common argument, "It's the woman's body, she has the right to choose", is scientifically wrong. Every cell of the mother's tonsils, appendix, heart, and lungs shares the same genetic code. The unborn child also has a genetic code, distinctly different from his mother's. Every cell of his body is uniquely his, eac...

Women Are Treated Unfairly

Nk2365
byaka

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

PowerPikachu21
Metallicasucks

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...
