Resolved: Abortion ought to be illegal under normal circumstances.


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...

Abortion is murder and wrong


Abortion is wrong for so many reasons. Firstly, it is killing an innocent child. When many women kill their child, their kid has a beating heartbeat by then and whatever has a heartbeat is living. Also, people think it's safe. Think again. Anyone can do some research and see the amount of things that can go wrong after an abortion. Another thing is that it's completely disobeying God. Abortion is thus, wrong. This country outlaws murder, but yet they make some exceptions. Abortion is murder and...

Moral Argument: Meat Eating


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.


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...

Blue-Frosted Cake Donuts


I am against blue-frosted cake donuts. Before I begin the debate, I would like to say that the spelling of "Donut" is merely the shortened term of "Doughnut" in persuasive American English, and that a "Donut" has the same overall definition and description as a "Doughnut". Don't even try to nail me on that one. Also I would like to remind my opposition that this is a one-round debate, so throw everything you have to say out there. As I was saying, I am against blue-frosted cake donuts, for...

Smoking isn't Good for You


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...
