Should kids (12 and under) have a cell phone?

TheBlackDragon04
Miriam14

Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...

It often excludes other types of sexual and reproductive health education, such as birth control and safe sex. Comprehensive sex education, by contrast, covers the use of birth control and sexual abstinence [1]. I will begin m...

I am, to be honest, quite excited and nervous about debating Max on this topic, and I am looking forward to a high quality back-and-forth. For however cute they are, Axolotls are pretty intimidating debaters.I would ask Max not to accept until the afternoon of Feb 28th. Because this is a...

But there are abortions happening that are far from humane. One type of abortion that is performed is a tube is put into the womb and sucks the baby into it breaking it' s limbs. People would not do this to hum...
