Organ donation should be 'opt out' as opposed to 'opt in'

chloe_louise
David.McIntosh

The percentage of the British population who have joined the organ donor register is 31%. A much larger percentage of the population would donate their organs if directly asked just have not made the effort to sign the register. The number of organs required per year far exceeds the number available and this would go some way to being solved by a system of 'opt out' rather than 'opt in.'...

Should the e cigarette be available to everyone

Debateteam1

I don't think it should be sold to everyone. I think the main purpose is to help people quit smoking. I feel that it will entice the younger generation to use this method of vaping, when there are side effects involved with inhaling any substance into the lungs....

Mandatory Drug Testing

TheBreadBasket

Drug tests are about 40-51 dollars per individual test. A yearly cost of around 10,000 to 1,000,000 a year. While they might be "effective" they are very costy. At pleasent middle school in ohio, they had wasted about 1 million dollars, and had only got three positives. In a place with some people known to be druggards, you would have gotten more positives. There are chances for a False-Positive or a False-Negative. Meaning that person that did not do drugs is getting convicted, or someone who d...

Euthanasia of Mentally Retarded

Rinka
bettabreeder

Eugenics though radically racist had the right idea. Why not get rid of the mentally and physically defective of all races? The Earth is already overpopulated, so why not get rid of those who will do nothing except take up space. 7 billion would go down to 4 billion within 10 years! Let's forget right to life and admit humanity needs QUALITY not quantity....

Unicorns eat cheese

cbirkas
THEBIGGESTCHEESELOVEREVER

YES, of course unicorns should eat cheese! Unicorns are mystical creatures that are rarely seen by humans, so there must not be that many unicorns that exist, meaning that when a unicorn wants to eat cheese, they won't take too much cheese, because there aren't enough unicorns to eat all the cheese! So it works out okay. Besides, factories do already make a lot of cheese and they don't use it all, but with unicorns eating cheese, there is someone there to eat the remaining cheese, so we won't be...

Should our children be vaccinated?

SlenderKitty
CristianGeek

This is an open debate. My position is that vaccines do more good than harm, and that everybody should be vaccinated, unless you are allergic/have other health problems. Obviously, I am looking for an anti-vax opponent, hopefully one who actually uses science instead of spewing conspiracy theories and self-experience. Oh, and by the way, I don't care what happened with your facebook friend. Unless he/she is a doctor, don't bother making an argument about it....

Abortion

Abortion should be the woman's choice. There is a lot of mental preparation for pregnancy and childbirth. It is the woman's body, why wouldn't she be able to choose?...

Death Penalty

lilianhunter
WilliamsP

You say imprisonment is the best route to take, but the death penalty is for INHUMANE crimes. I'm sorry but if it is unjustly to be put to death for murdering, raping, spying, terrorizing; how are those not inhumane as well? Also in prison, prisoners can access books, television, calling and visiting their loved ones, better health coverage than most unemployed Americans and three meals a day. Yes, what a punishment that is....
