Stop Teaching Only Abstinence!

TheHolyTaco
rawrxqueen

The amount of abstinence-only programs and/or programs that have a heavy bias towards abstinence needs to stop right now! There is a big enough problem with STDs in the United States as I speak. A lot of young adults in the "Bible Belt" only know about condoms and birth control pills, which is alright, but the abstinence-only programs are making it seem like they are completely ineffective. The bible belt has the highest rate of STDs in the US. [http://img.thebody.com/legacyAssets/74/17/map....

Abortion should be illegal

Stevos_go_cart

Abortion is murder no matter when a person believes life becomes official. This controversy will remain for centuries, however the fact that a potential life has ended before given a chance remains evidence enough for most people to understand why a person should never have a choice of whether a baby lives or dies. There are many reasons abortion should be illegal including the descriptive and disturbing stories about how aborted babies sometime scream as they come out and the looks of pain on t...

It is possible to become a top level bodybuilder without resorting to anabolic steroids.

For the purposes of this debate the term anabolic steroid will apply to synthetic testosterone and HGH, and similar products such as DECA, ANDRO, and the like. My premise is that the human body is capable of reaching high levels of muscle mass and low levels of bodyfat, to a degree that they could compete on a professional bodybuilding stage. It is my contention that supplements and drugs are at the very bottom of the list of what determines ones potential as a bodybuilder. The first facto...

Should schools be able to give out birth control to middle school girls?

gonovice
my_randomness

Well I cant really think of any parent who wants there daughters to be given birth control by their teachers. As a parent it is your responsiblity to make decisions about your childrens lives. It is not the schools business whether a girl needs birth control or not. I mean if a girl is looking to have sex in 6th 7th or 8th grade then she needs to choose to be responsible enough to go to her parents. But what about the girls who don't want to have sex until they're married? If they were to change...

Universal Healthcare be provided to all American citizens

Quick, try to think of one government office that runs efficiently. The Department of Transportation? Social Security Administration? Department of Education? There isn't a single government department that squeezes efficiency out of every dollar the way a private sector can. We've all heard stories of the government's waste of millions of dollars on frivilous concerns such as the million dollar cow flatulence study or the Pentagon's 14 billion dollar Bradley design project that resulted in a ve...

The US Fed Gvt. should substantially increase public health assistance to sub-suharan Africa.

cailinalainn
Yraelz

The US Fed Govt should in fact increase public health assistance for many reasons. One of of which I believe is most important: The water purity in sub-saharan africa is poor, as they cannot afford water sanitation devices such as filters or pumps. Hundreds of thousands of people are dying every year from water-bourne diseases. We should help them install pumps in every country that filter and purify water, and store it in a storrage tank. This way, the water will be disease free and they'll ha...

that the united states should not value abortion it is wrong and selfish

nater
me_a

why are we letting all these innocent children die. The government should not highly value abortion. Killing babies is wrong as well as sex before marriage. I stand resolve that instead of abortion that we need to think of adoption so that a baby can have a mom and dad. If you cannot handle a baby because you are not able too than think of the baby instead of yourself. People tend to forget that what if our parents believed in killing us instead of keeping us or at least putting us up for adopti...
