Ok First, I want to define about Voluntary Euthanasia it self. Voluntary Euthanasia is euthanasia conducted with consent from family and especially from sufferer it self. Since 2009 voluntary euthanasia has been legal in Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and the states of Oregon (USA) and Washington (USA).

Should girls be able to hit a guy and expect not to get hit back? (please speak in general context)

kizzet

Simply stated, I will start off with the argument that although guys are generally physically stronger than women (There are few exceptions of course), many girls believe it is okay to hit a guy. I don't think guys should ever hit a girl without a good reason, but if a girl unintelligibly hits a guy who is stronger than her, like if a man picks a fight with a bear, you should expect consequences. It's ridiculous for girls to take advantage of the socially accepted fact that "guys shouldn't hit g...

However, during the past few months, the more recent outbreak has spread to more developed urban areas, including the United Stares Of America, as well as many rural areas.

The Westboro Baptist Church should not have a right to free speech

trueseeker

In America, freedom of speech is protected by the 1st amendment of the United States Constitution. Thus, ones speech may be unpopular, it may be hurtful or clearly misunderstood. It may even be unpatriotic; however, the U.S. Constitution supports their right to make these statements. It is my opinion that the Westboro Baptist Church is a mean cult which only exists to make the lives of ordinary citizens miserable. They protest military funerals, they hailed the mass killing of children as God's...

Wylted
thett3

This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...
