euthanasia

When someone is in pain and is in the clutches of a terminal sickness how much do they really want to go on. If you are dying of brain cancer and you don't want your family to see you melting into nothingness would you really just continue on even though you had less than six months to live. Put yourself in their shoes, no we don't mean the elderly we mean the young people who don't want to waste away and be in pain for the last years of their life. Of course strict laws would help to limit the...

Israel is morally justified in its attacks on Hamas

KonstanBen
Naweedyosofi

I affirm, Israel's attacks are justified. To start, I'd like to look at what qualifies as justified. Any action that has a net benefit (includes preventing a greater harm) is a justifiable action. A net benefit means that at the end of the effects of the action, more good was done than bad. With that in mind, I will move on to my arguments. My first is that Israel's attacks are warranted by the threat of Hamas. As already seen, Hamas is willing and has been willing to carry out attacks on Isr...

Gay marriage should be legal

Chrislove
chezbona

I believe gay marriage should be legal because everyone is human regardless of sexuality. The only argument people use is religion but Jesus taught love and acceptance not hate and discrimination. So if this is true that people hate gays because of religion, you are going against the words of Jesus Christ. If being gay was a choice why would someone choose to be hated and discriminated against. No one wants to be put down. Love is a beautiful and a powerful thing. Shouldn't we embrace it, not ma...

Those responsible for Benghazi where Four Americans Died should be made to answer for the debacle.

Lookingatissues
NathanDuclos

My opinion is that The State department heads are responsible for what happend in Benghazi because they were more worried about not offending Muslim officials than they were about protecting the Americans in the embassy. Will those responsible for Benghazi where Four Americans Died ever be revealed and made to answer for their failures to protect those Americans there with American military protection to the Embassy Will the heads of the State department be made to answer for their role in that...

Con will be arguing the opposite: That the 10 commandments being newly placed here are constitutional under Federal law. The first round will be acceptance....
