If a woman tricks a man into getting her pregnant, he should not be financially liable for the child

First round is acceptance only. I am specifically discussing cases in which the woman lied about using birth control and tricked her partner into getting her pregnant....

Abortion

micellio
TheMarketLibertarian

Abortion is the biggest moral sin that we as a society have accepted since slavery. A woman's "right" to choose whether her child lives or dies is unacceptable and should be prohibited. Every person's life has meaning and to rob an unborn child of their right to life is a horrendous act that should never go unpunished. I am not saying I want to control what a woman does with her body but I am saying that everyone must follow the law and not commit murder....

Borders and boundaries

As_A_Whole
TheDragon5

Today our world is running into these imaginary borders created by power hungry humans. I've recently started playing an online game where my team consist of members from all over our homeland , earth. We argue only about the greatness of our teams but have always made amends over heated arguments. It's only a game. A game we all love. If the Internet has done so well without borders and boundaries why can't the physical world follow suit? After all Earth is a home we all love....

Should people go to jail for kicking a cat?

Elispan

People should go to jail for kicking a cat because it is a very cruel and inhumane behavior. Nowadays, pets like cats or dogs have played an important role in our life, some people even take them as one of their family members. Human being is a life ,while a cat is also a life, we ought to respect every life. However, some people like to kick pets or kill pets for fun, even eat them. Kicking a cat is to give it unnecessary pain, it means animals abuse. People's desire will never be satisfied, if...

What Grande PATISSERIE is better

CalebAronson

Well, I think that the Cheese and Berries flavor is more consistent than the Apple flavor. With the apple flavor you only get one flavor and for the same price? So why wouldn't you want to 2 flavors for the same price? It's crazy that this is even an argument. The nutritional facts may vary by person, but for a good snack during 3rd hour, you can get 250 calories worth of deliciousness. The Apple flavor has 370mg of Sodium, so obviously the Cheese and Berries flavor is a healthier choice and a g...

Abolish all holidays

Debate.orgusername1
Sonofcharl

I am for abolishing all holidays as not to shove falsehoods down the throats of innocent people and encourage make-believe garbage amongst youngsters, to move on from the old ways that hold us back and move on to the future. Let people develop there own paradigms . This constant flow of the same holidays that play over and over every year like a broken record makes life stale and relentlessly unbearable. We must abort the holidays....

Gay Marraige Should Be Allowed.

sydnerella
InquireTruth

Gays should be allowed to marry partners of their choice just as heterosexual couples do. It is ignorant in today's world to deny such a basic right to an individual because of something that is innate. Yes, sexuality is not a choice, it is innate. For my first point, let me state that a civil union is not a reasonable compromise for a legal marriage. Most civil unions don't have the same rights as a legal marriage has. Even if we made all civil unions exactly equal to legal marriage but cal...

Should schools have a dress code?

boucher14
liberal_moron

If schools are to have dress codes then they should not aim it towards the girls. Yes the guys have some but the dress code mainly concerns the girls. Obviously I do not think that students should be showing up to school in booty shorts and crop tops, but they have so many strict rules just so that the guys can "stay focused." In my opinion if they are going to have this many rules dedicated to how people are dressing, then we should just be assigned uniforms. Yes some people may think that unif...

Gay marriage should be illegal.

Nordung
Starfleet

1. It Is Not Marriage Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and well being of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex "marriage" propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and w...
