Same-Sex adoption

ModernHippie

There are thousands of children and teenagers that go without a home daily, that is not right. Everyone should be given the opportunity to have a loving home to go to. Everyone should have the opportunity...

Should Facilitated Research be used to Prevent Teen Suicide/Depression

ResponsiblyIrresponsible

NO- By making the issue of teen suicide evident to the public, it allows teens to be pressured to "get better" by their peers and family. When the issue is expressed to the World then teens feel trapped and surrounded, being watched by everyone thinking they are going to kill themselves and bystanders think they can help by watching. While this may not be the case for most issues it is on teen suicide. What do you think? Yes or No?...

My opponent will be arguing that swear words are inappropriate for some/all people, and that they are considered bad for a reason.

1) It is the right of the people to have effective law enforcement. 2) At times, in some nations there is a lack of effective law enforcement. 3) The only available remedy at that point is for the citizens themselves to enforce the law....

Traditional Families vs. Contemporary Families

LeiLei
connorjfield

Essentially, it is better for children to grow up in a traditional home because it gives them a sense of love and respect. But what about the ones that are in a same sex marriage and want to adopt a child? How will they grow up in society? Is it better for a child to grow up in a 'Traditional' Family or a 'Contemporary' Family...

I could be something in life if you guys give me a chance....
