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.'...

Affordable Care Act?

Mr.Mar
lannan13

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been in effect for the last few years with reported success. Despite having increased access to care and improving health care, there are still attempts to repeal the ACA. Much of the rhetoric tossed around has to do with character assassinating our black President, Mr. Obama. Other arguments are: the "state vs. fed" don't tell us what to do argument. Are there any good arguments against this legislation out there?...

Teen Smoking

Teens should be able to smoke. Many people think smoking is bad because it can kill you, but almost anything can kill you so what difference does it make if you smoke. Due to the fact that teens today illegally smoke they should be able to have parental consent to smoke so that it"s not illegal and it won"t affect them any differently than an adult smoker....

Abortion

FemaleGamer
Xie-Xijivuli

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsknXsm2eHo No nation devoted to individual liberty should force women back to the days of back-alley abortions. No women should have to bear a child against thier will. Free-will. That's what I stand for. No, no. That would be terrible, un-ethical and generally wrong. Women with free-will? God-forbid! The fact is that women will always still desire to have an abortion, which some may follow through with. This will never end abortion. You have no control over...

Kids Eat Too Much Sugar

ss12

I am representing the affirmative side of the argument, "Kids Eat too Much Sugar." Childhood obesity greatly increased in the past 30 years. The percentage of children aged 6"11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to almost 18% in 2012. And what is the main cause of this fact? Unhealthy eating. To specify, the incessant amounts of sugar laced into our foods. Many food companies nowadays produce so much sugar in there drinks, and food products. An example is so...

Wearing a helmet when cycling should be a law.

Xanziepan
mostlogical

Cycling is a very common sport amongst all ages. Bicycle helmets reduce head injury risk by 85% which is why some people prefer to wear a helmet when riding. However the majority of the population do not wear a helmet for personal reasons. Only 14% of British children wear a helmet whilst riding a bike. But no more that 17% of fatal cycling accidents were wearing a helmet proves that wearing helmets have saved lives....

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....

Smoking should be made illegal

kiraviolet10
Texas14

Smoking is should be made illegal because it causes cancer, brutally harms the environment and is the cause 6 million deaths around the world every year. 600 million trees are chopped down every year. Why? Just to satisfy the addiction of millions of people around the world. Smoking is completely non beneficial to the smoker and the people around them. I understand that there is a sense of choice for the smokers but the smokers are at the same time changing lives for non smokers around them. If...
