Abortion is wrong and bad

LaughItUpLydia
Atheism_Debater

Abortion is taking the right of life away from a human being who has no say in his/her situation. When you take the life away from someone, it is murder, therefore abortion is murder although there is much controversy. This controversy is what we will be debating about here. This debate will simply be about the morality and mortality of the subject of abortion. Pro = arguing that abortion is immoral and a form of murder against those who can't speak for themselves. Con = arguing that a...

Should Sex be a Forbidden Topic?

bman7720
Uganda

Sex is the primal drive of any sexually reproductive species. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs all around us. However, this topic is something that tends to be conversation families stay away from. In our modern society, protective parents are everywhere. But is it justified to avoid giving a child "The Talk" simply because it involves the action of sex? While there are some dark and vulgar sides of the practice of sex, the basics are just facts of life. If children are taught by th...

Should the death penalty be illegal?

EliasL
savannah1006

I believe that the death penalty should be illegal in ALL states (and the world for that matter) due to the fact that there is no crime that should be punishable by death. For example, if there is a murder (i.e. Jodi Arias), and the defendant is found guilty, the government has no right to kill him/her due to the fact that this too is murder....

Is Ebola a good thing

Bakedcommunist666
IcySound

Ebola is a good thing, because it eliminates the weak. if your immune system is so weak that your body is literally disintegrating than we obviously don't want your terrible genes out there. it is like natural selection, we only want the strongest people to make it to the future. if the weak are around tasks will be failed and all in all the human race could be put at risk because someone is incapable of doing a designated task. That is why Ebola is a good thing....

Abortion shall be defined in this debate as "a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus."[1]The first round will be for acceptance. Trolling and insults will result in a full seven-point loss.Sources1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion

Welcome to the final round of the March Tournament Bracket, hosted by Wylted! Congrats to my esteemed opponent, Lee001, on making it to this round! I look forward to a stirring debate on a controvertial topic. Just a note to voters: the ELO minimum has been set to 2500. I think this resolution is relatively straightforward, but I'll be as clear as possible. This is a policy-based resolution, and as such, it is my burden to present a case. The burden of proof is on me, as I am seeking to ch...

Global Warming: Climate Change

juvenalian
Chucknorris5799

We should take action on climate change now because it is predicted that the climate will increase by 4-6 degrees by 2100. Right now the climate is increased by 1 degree Celsius warmer since 1880. In the past extreme heat and drought has caused thousands of deaths. For example in Chicago 1995, 795 people died in a heat wave and in Europe 2003, 30,000 people died from another heat wave. In Northwest China desertification of farming lands causes a loss of 1000 miles annually. The Amazon forests pl...
