Animal testing

Angelxm
OpinionPersom121

Animals do not have rights, therefore it is acceptable to experiment on them. Animals do not have the cognitive ability or moral judgment that humans do and because of this they have been treated differently than humans by nearly every culture throughout recorded history. If we granted animals rights, all humans would have to become vegetarians, and hunting would need to be outlawed....

Should same sex marriage be legal?

erwint.2021
learnyang1812

Same sex marriage should not be legal due to God's creation of man and woman. God made man and woman, not so a man could marry a man, or a woman could marry a woman. If you are a Christian, and believe in the Bible you should be against, because it is condemned in 1 Tim. 1:12. Plus it takes away a childs right to a mother or a father....

PrefaceIt's been a sizeable amount of time since I last debated, and I really want to get back into it, esp. now that the campaign is over and things are settling down. This is one of two challenges I am issuing, and I think it should afford some interesting discussion. I find the topic to be cool, somewhat of a departure from a lot of the common topics used on DDO, and I think it will provide an basis for an engaging discourse! To accept, you must h...

Barack Obama needs to be impeached now.

MrFreeThinker
TheSatiricalAnarchist

Barack Obama has consistently lied to the American public, committed treason by helping our enemies, fought illegal wars without congressional approval, disrespected our most important documents(the Constitution and the Bill of Rights), and has destroyed the American economy far beyond repair. Misdemeanor means a minor wrongdoing, so you can factually say he has committed numerous misdemeanors against the United States. He should be impeached as he is the biggest threat to our national security...

abortion

You never know what will happen to any child's life in a formidable family broken or other. That does not matter when deciding Wether to abort or not abort a child. The women made the choice to have unprotected sex the end. Should you spend your whole paycheck if you can't afford a medical bill to come up? Should you antagonize someone bigger than you in a fight. Should you miss work 3 days in a row and hope your boss. Ails you out and you can keep your job? Everything has consequences it doesn'...
