The-Lone-Hunt
2Sukh2

Education grew benighted as men of science were suppressed, for their factual evidence defied the hypothesis of God and challenged the all mighty Catholic Churc...

Euthanasia Should be Legal in Medical Practice

JonathanVN
UchihaMadara

As the title of the debate would imply, the purpose of this argument is to discuss whether or not euthanasia should be legal in medical practices. I am against this (attacking it), and thus I would expect my opponent to argue in favor of it. The first round of five is solely for acceptance, and each person will have three whole days to respond before forfeiture of the round. May the smartest man win!...

RJ999999999RJ
funnycn

In my opinion, I strongly believe that soft drinks shouldn"t be sold at schools, because soft drinks damages student"s behaviour, concentration, inhibitions, learning abilities and overall general health issues due to the community comments on www.debate.org/opinions/should-soda-be-sold-at-schools. For instance, it makes students aggressive, hyper, stimulant, defiant and disruptive; as well as it could distract student from concentrate on what they are doing. Firstly, I confidently believe th...
