Farming animals should be illegal

nil29
Eutropios1

I am for animal farming being illegal purely because of the detrimental environmental effects. It is the largest contributor towards global warming and environmental companies aren't doing anything about it. Due to animal agriculture, by 2050, Co2 emissions will have increased by 80%. It's destroying our planet and I can't understand why people are okay with this just because meat is 'tasty'. The amount of water that goes into a making one burger is 6000 litres. Think about how ridiculous the co...

The resolution is that circumcision, save out of medical neccessity, should be banned in the US. This has to do with ethics- and I will be arguing from a Classical Liberal or Libertarian point of view....

The Bryan Mullins Logic: Christmas Is A Big Distraction For Murder, Christmas Should Be Ban

SuperTrooper44
JimShady

Since in this rant video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upZ4sDuBw_c Bryan Mullins says he is proud that the fact that churches are slaughtering America's children has been proven and the Christmas is a big distraction for murder. Christmas cartoon icons like Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer, Frosty The Snowman, and Santa Claus are truly big distractions to distract your kids into believing lies and to distract children from the fact that churches are slaughtering America's children for not be...

Israeli School Trips to Auschwitz Should be Banned

Emilrose
TheUnexaminedLife

By Israeli school trips I'm referring to excursions with high school students from Israel, and Auschwitz-Birkenau is a former concentration camp from WW2, located in south-west Poland and now open to visitors. As Pro I will be arguing that students from Israel should not be permitted *organised* trips there, Con will of course be arguing the opposite. Character limit is 8000, first round acceptance, then opening arguments, rebuttals and closing arguments. TheUnexaminedLife will be arguing...

Should Languages be taught in school

Should Languages be taught in school well I vote yes! It helps them prepare for when they are older. For example, it Helps them get into a better college. Another example is, It helps them become better thinkers and better learners. One text even said, it gives the Cultural awareness of others! Another Reason might be that it's easier to learn at a younger age. For example, One parent wants to understand kid but cant because school is teaching at a young age so the children will remember foreign...

Women Are Treated Unfairly

Nk2365
byaka

Women should be equal to men but they are treated unequally. For example, "Women are almost half of the workforce. They are the sole or co-breadwinner in half of American families with children. They receive more college and graduate degrees than men. Yet, on average, women continue to earn considerably less than men. In 2015, female full-time, year-round workers made only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 20 percent. Women, on average, earn less than men in nearly ev...

Abortion is Immoral.

bfkennedy
DethKnot

I will take the stance of Pro-Life. I believe that a fetus is considered a form of human life and has the rights a human has from the moment of fertilization to birth. A few things to begin, scientists have established that life begins at fertilization (Princeton). With this in mind, it is important to understand that an abortion at any week during the pregnancy is the taking of a life, regardless of the physical traits that the fetus has yet&n...

'Trigger Warnings' stifle debate

benjaminhunt
QueenDaisy

" Safe spaces and trigger warnings are being used as a cudgel to promote homogenous thinking and curb dissent in higher academia. College is supposed to be about learning, about perspective, and the free exchange of ideas. Confronting an opinion or worldview that you may not share, or may not have considered is NECESSARILY uncomfortable. This whole notion that anything that would make you uncomfortable needs a trigger warning, or creating physical areas for thought bubble in "safe spaces" is no...

A license should be required to parent

mahru
madina.2002

As we see news about the many mistreated children in the world, a question starts to arise: should we required to have a license to parent? There are many arguments to support this idea of parental licenses, and the ideally, this solution to the problem would solve many cases of brutality and ignorance. However, do we really want a world that controls our ability to raise a child, like driving a car or motorcycle? Few of the many reasons why people shouldn't be required to have a license to pare...

Should abortion be abolished or permitted by law?

TatianaGu
July7654

The abortion debate asks whether it can be right to stop a pregnancy before childbirth. It is a very painful topic for women and men who find themselves facing the moral dilemma of whether or not to terminate a pregnancy. It's one of the most polarising moral issues - most people are on one side or the other, very few are undecided. I consider myself a...
