Should France require that 40% of all music on the radio is in French?


Would you like to be restricted to what kind of music you listen to? In my argument, I say that music is a personal preference and should not be controlled by the government.

You could say you could change the station that the music is playing, but shouldn't you listen to the stations you want without having to ch...

Should abortion be abolished or permitted by law?


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...
