Resolved: The evidence supports the Abortion-Crime link

Nivek

== Clarification == For those unaware, there has been a supposed link between abortion and crime rates. The argument can be found in Freakonomics and Levitt and Donahue 2001. As the theory goes, as abortion becomes liberalized, crime rates will decrease. == Rules == 1. Forfeiting a round will be counted as a concession 2. Arguments should be visible within the debate, sources can be placed in an outside link if needed 3. PRO will have the BOP to prove that abortion decreases crime...

Tarrif penalty on imports not manufactured to U.S regulations for polution, safety, child labor, etc

pvwebb
casebash

Here are two things that hinder the competitiveness of U.S. labor, and what the U.S. can do about it. First, we regulate the environmental impact, safety, and employment practices of our own manufacturing, but put no restrictions on imports from manufacturers outside the U.S. Regulating one business when its competition is unregulated regulates that business out of business. Second, we tax the income of U.S workers, making U.S. labor more expensive. The U.S. could put a tariff as a penalty on...

should students under 18 be active participants in politics

Blade-of-Truth

Students under 18 are really just children. The most important time in a persons life, is their childhood. They don't need to remember constant political arguments. Nor should they have to face the mental stress that comes with constantly remembering all views and opinions of each debate. Children should be educated in our countries past before having a say that could change our future. I agree, some kids have the maturity to make smart educated decisions, yet most lack the knowledge that they n...

There is one definition we need before starting this debate to remove any ambiguity.

This is why I have left out the part of the definition talking about special agreements. Any attemp...
