Abortion should be legal

SitaraMusica

I've wanted to debate this topic for a while now, and my opponent has shown some interest in it on the forums, so I thought this would be a good debate. Since the resolution is very straightforward I don't think an acceptance round is needed. Con may use their text space however they want to. Opening arguments: 1) Uncertainty about the beginning of life The scientific answer to the question of whether life begins at conception, at birth, or at some other point during a pregnancy is not...

We are the same.

i think the world has to stop building militaries and hate. everyone is created to live peacefully. it is not our fault or responsibilities to suffer and struggle due to any nation's leader. for example, if tow nations argue or have something lead to war, i think these nations leader fight with each other, one to one. not just sitting on their TV watching innocent people fighting for them. wars and hate need to stop, but how can that be done?...

Is self-sacrifice an ethical choice in a one on one scenario? What about lethal self-defense?

Maia
Luden

I think that self- sacrifice, even for only a single life, is indeed an ethical option. In this hypothetical situation, the person being saved is of approx. the same age as the saver, has no choice in the matter and has committed no terrible crimes or acts of unselfish good. Personally, I choose to answer this question with yes because I would not be able to live with myself otherwise. I would forever feel like I had payed for my life in blood. This might push me to inspired acts of kindness, bu...

There is no unchanging, separate self.

Strycora
PhilK

First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

This debate would be about birth control. I would argue that the government should fund birth control and that doing so would benefit the nation more then hurt it. Obviously the opponent would be debating the opposite...

Is an Organ Lottery Ethical?

connorgon
SPENCERJOYAGE14

To begin, I'd like to go to the liberty to explain what the organ lottery is. The organ lottery is when every person's name is put into a drawing persay, and if your name was drawn whenever someone needed organs, you are required by law to have all your organs harvested for people who need them. I firmly believe that this is not OK. Imagine, you're a 6 year old boy and your name is drawn from this lottery and you are forced to end your life that moment for people who need organs. The reason p...

Does science fundamentally have the ability to 'play god'?

AgnosticPanda
Blade-of-Truth

If science is " knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation" and it is through human ingenuity and creativity that have allow us to manipulate the surrounding environment to create technology which is the embodiment of that manipulation. Is it fundamentally possible for science to 'cross into gods realm and play god'? http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/science...
