THW impose higher tax on married couples who choose not to have children.

clajen0112

Under the motion THW impose higher tax on married couples who choose not to have children, I would first like to define the problem and move on to my argument. I believe that the problem of the society is low productivity. As people have low birth rate, the productivity also gets lower. I believe having babies actually contribute to the society, and how tax contributes to the society must be equal with how having babies actually contribute to the society. As I have fully defined the problem, now...

Should Same-Sex Marriage be Legal in the US?

Bennett91
cwt002

Round 1 is for brief acceptance and laying down ground rules and definitions. The topic of this debate is to question whether or not Gay Marriage should be legal in all of the US. This is a debate about legality and civil rights, not a debate about how gays are gross therefore don't deserve rights. I don't want to limit the range of possible arguments my opponent may bring however arguments based on Religion, and "morals" that stem there from, must meet a rigorous criteria in order to be seen...

Surrogacy

Logicforcollege

Many surrogates have chil...

There is a need for old age homes in this generation

Atheist-Independent

In this time and age, where money is the main aim for many people, parents who spend all their money and time to raise a child, are finally rejected by the very same child, and are dumped of at a pleasant looking 'Old Age Home' for the 'good' of their parents. Now for people looking at these homes from the outside, they look like heaven on earth, with anything you can ask for. But the parents who are sent there endure a feeling of pain that cannot be described- the pain of rejection. Why do we h...

Ragam

As I am supporting the point that youth have more important things in life other than having sex. I would like to start that sex is not the main motive life.People have to face other hardshps in life other than sex.Life is not full of sex and increasing the population and reaching a target it is how you lead a proper life and go through the hardships in your life. Sex is not an hardship of life.Some people are satisfied by sex but all need to lead a life other than sex.There are people in life w...
