Should we allow researchers to continue creating designer babies?

baileyboo500
THEdebateMCgodNUGGET

We should not allow researchers to continue creating designer babies because to many religious people they are going against the works of god by creating a "fake" child. Religious people believe that by changing the unborn child's genes you're taking away the unborn babies individuality. I believe that we will be creating a gap in society because not only can only rich people afford this procedure but we are also creating a possibility of damaging the gene pool. We can take away diseases but tha...

This house supports abortion

JamesGup
bendoyle2002

First I want to establish that I will be focusing on the principle of abortion and thoroughly believe that the time when you can actually get an abortion should be decided by medical professionals and the women involved. You will hear some typical arguments from me, however I will involve some new 'out there' arguments and will put deep analysis into already well established ones as well. My first argument will be centered around the profound affect that a pregnancy can have on a woman's...

Mankind is slowly working its way toward Utopia

Nudely
Soulman4764

"Utopia is impossible, so it's not even worth shooting for. As long as mankind is flawed, and mankind will ALWAYS be flawed, an earthly Utopia is simply impossible" That's what most preachers, pundits and professors will fill your head with these days. To this, I proudly say: "BULLHOCKEY!!!" Instead, as I look back two or three thousand years into history, and compare where we are today with where we were then... Utopia seems just around the next corner....

A Plan to Prioritize Arming Girls

Whistle
TheNeatFreak

Whereas, Women are weaker than men; Acts of violence against woman are likely to be perpetrated by a man; and Handguns reduce or eliminate the advantage men have over women in strength. And Whereas, Trans-women are disproportionately likely to face abuse or assault; Trans-women are more likely to be murdered in a hate crime; Statistics show murder rates of trans-women are increasing; and Trans-women are more likely to have negative interactions with law-enforcement.

I ought to be allowed to kill the man who molested my son

Masterful
DawnBringerRiven

Very recently my son was brutally molested by a balding man. This man was his teacher, someone who should ensure my child's safety and protect him from harm. Instead he was pushing his fat grubby fingers deep into my sons anus. My beautiful son was attacked, his innocence stolen. I have every right to end the life of this predator. -That man is sexually attracted to children. You can't undo that, he will always be a threat to society, prison will not rehabilitate that. -He preyed upon...

Humans Do Not Have "Free Will"

Makuma
Throwback

First off, I am an atheist and thus I don't believe that "souls" exist. I believe that, as humans, we are simply biological organisms and nothing more. We are not some "special species" as many people seem to believe, the fact of the matter is simply that we have a consciousness and are self-aware. But let's move onto the debate, shall we? So right off the bat, let me just say one thing: the concept of humans having "fre...
