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...

Should teenage girls get abortion without parents permission?

Safia.Abdalla
democrat435

With the rise of teenage pregnancies, it is pretty obvious that teenage girls should be given the right to an abortion without parent consent. 1. The child is their's. It is not the parent's child's child. It is the child's child and she should have say over what to do with it. This is the limit where parent intervention ends and a teenager should be allowed to make their own decisions. 2. They would avoid problems. Abortions without family consent can prevent disputes at home, domestic...

pickeringmsc2014
carnesmsc14

Marijuana will not be legalized in our state for many reasons. These are also reasons why it has not been legalized over the years. The first reason is the fact that marijuana is a gateway drug. In most cases, weed has been linked to much more heavy narcotics, such as heroin or cocaine. As marijuana itself may not be very dangerous, it does lead to much harder drugs. When addicts often tell their story, almost all begin with marijuana. According to Time magazine, a person who smokes pot is 104 t...
