Lowering Teenage Suicide rates

Pmanningboy1
Bexxx

Medical doctors need to stop being leery of prescribing antidepressants to teenagers when needed. If doctors would start prescribing them (when needed) the teenage suicide would drop significantly. The United States Center For Disease Control has taken recent surveys from High School and College Students and these are the numbers -- 27 percent of high-school students said they'd "thought seriously" about suicide in the past year; 8 percent said they'd actually tried to kill themselves. -- 10.3...

Making abortion illegal.

smartone

Getting pregnant is a personal choice, therefore abortion is a personal issue. If a female wants to change her mind about birthing another human, then so be it-especially if the circumstances aren't fair....

Resolved: Abortion ought to be illegal under normal circumstances.

Aaron100
Puck

1. Abortion ought to be illegal The abortion of a fetus is not the innocent action some make it out to be, it is a terrible crime against a child that is not able to defend itself or have a say in its future. When a women becomes pregnet, she has an obligation to care for her baby until it is born and then either give it up for adoption or care for it like she should(in some cases adoption is nessecary, but we won't go into that). 2. A human is made at the moment of conception The second...

Studies has shown that smoking marijuana doesn't harm you as much as alcohol. We still see teenagers holding a bottle of vodka passed out of their minds and looking the other way we see two people sharing some marijuana, the two people are relaxed and has not crossed the precipice of where you are wasted out of your mind, the teenager holding a vodka is sleeping on the sidewalk, the teenagers precipice was crossed when he/she started to drink....

Moral Argument: Meat Eating

KatelynnChambers
Mirza

The consumption of animal flesh by modern human beings is morally wrong. Humans have moved beyond the necessity of killing and eating animals for food. We have socially evolved beyond eating other animals. In ages gone by, humans have had to struggle against the wilderness. Every scrap of food was precious, and every hunt could mean life or death for the tribe or family. Eating animals was an absolute necessity for survival. But today, modern humans living in developed countries are...

Mandatory health insurance participation (through private insurance companies) for all Americans.

TheRedneckCabbie
CongressmanDrew

In my opinion, the best way to make health insurance accessible and affordable for all Americans, is to require that all Americans purchase health insurance. According to the The National Coalition on Health Care... Nearly 47 million Americans, or 16 percent of the population, were without health insurance in 2005. Nearly 82 million people – about one-third of the population below the age of 65 spent a portion of either 2002 or 2003 without health coverage. In 2005, 27.4 million work...

Smoking isn't Good for You

gelie96
Erick

Smoking is not good for because smoking can lead to death or lung cancer. Smoking kills your lungs. Smoking is one of the worst things kids or adults can do to their bodies. Yet every single day about 3,900 kids between the ages 12 and 17 start smoking. Most middle school students don't smoke — only about 1 in 16 does. And most high school students don't smoke either — about 1 in 5 does (that means 4 out of 5 don't). Smoking and tobacco use can cause cancer and heart disease. smoking and tobacco...

Cremations and burials should be made illegal

brian_eggleston
FormAndTheFormless

Cremating dead bodies releases huge amounts of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, particulate matter, mercury, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen chloride, heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants into the atmosphere, thus making a significant contribution to global warming. At the same time, burying corpses is no more environmentally friendly as this method of disposal results in vast quantities of hazardous embalming fluids leeching into the soil. Furthermore, entire forests...
