An Anarchist State

Greetings! I'd like to begin by clarifying that this debate will be purely philosophical. For this reason, judges will not consider sources. This debate is one of ideology and theory, not of statistics. Although I reserve this first round for acceptance, I will offer some definitions so this debate will not be accepted under any misunderstanding.

The Mother has huge emotions towards her child

Surrogacy motherhood should be prohibited because of the emotional aspect coming from the biological mother. Yes, she may have signed a contract saying that she will follow through with it, but that doesn"t mean that her emotions will agree with her when the time actually comes.

A surrogate must be emotionally prepared to deal with these feelings while honoring her contract. Mo...

Are people born with there personalities? e.g Could a person be born mean.

Elijahhill97

I guess part of our attitudes, and personalities are genetic, but it's the same as racism, it's learned. Our environment shapes us, anger is a natural emotion, but that doesn't mean we know to act on it. People can't change the way they were brought up, but no baby was born with a mean spirit....
