Medical Research Using Live Animals

Djidebate00
Craigsgirl

I believe that using live animals in research is wrong because of the injuries and risks. The animals that are being use are kept in captivity and or killed. If the animal does survive, it is injured and will be kept in captivity for the rest of its life www.aboutanimaltesting.co.uk. Experimenting with these animals is a choice between life and pain, but if not death, pain....

Engenetics is perfectly fine within society, there is absolutely no problem with it other then cultural beliefs but if it against yours then just stay away from it.

Should Gene Therapy be Covered by Medical Insurance

Hurtado
Dan4reason

My stance on this subject is that Gene Therapy should not be covered under medical insurance. I think this because there are certain liabilities that come with replacing malfunctioned DNA with good DNA. The DNA can be placed in the wrong location, activate the wrong proteins or systems, or cause cancer by cell rejection. The benefits are numerous for gene therapy but insurance companies have to have a safety line. If a person dies by receiving medical care should the company have to give money...

Should the world cup football go to Qatar in 2022

I am mostly against because of the fact that during the day of the 'bidding' there were a lot of countries with much better papers than Qatar and yet Qatar won which is in my opinion not that correct. However I don't doubt they will do a good job because they have the finances for it. I am quite certain that worl cup will fail because there won't be a good atmosphere in and around the stadiums...

Baseballdebater

I believe that the District of Columbia should have full Congressional representation. For a number of reasons, including military service, taxation without representation, racial fairness, and finally and maybe most importantly because they are Americans. I would like an opponent that will stay active and know the topic and also will not resort to vulgarity or insults to make their points. Round one is a simple acceptance of my rules and a short, paragraph or less, thesis statement that su...
