Vaccines cause brain damage and autism.

JakeLamotta
ScrinTech

Since the vaccine schedule was increased in the 1990's autism rates and other learning disorders have sky rocketed. Thousands of parents all have the same story of their kid's receiving the MMR vaccine and their kids falling into autism shortly after. When a doctor suggested that he may have found a link between autism and vaccines and published a paper in a journal, all hell broke loose. This doctor has been discredited, and anyone who suggests that he was on to something is vilified. Why w...

abortion should be legal if rape or incest

I think that abortion should be legal if you have been raped by a relative or a random stranger. Imagine if you got raped and pregnant then you had to carry that baby for NINE months. Waking up everyday with that child having to relive that situation over and over again. Yes, God wouldn't want you to kill a child but he wouldn't want this to happen to you also. F.Y.I- I am not saying that killing a baby is alright. I am against killing a baby if you are just playing around....

Physician assisted suicide (Euthanasia)

The right to life is perhaps the most basic and fundamental of all our rights. However, with every right comes a choice. The right to speech does not remove the option to remain silent; the right to vote brings with it the right to abstain. In the same way, the right to choose to die is implicit in the right to life. The degree to which physical pain and psychological distress can be tolerated is different in all humans. Quality of life judgments are private and personal, thus only the sufferer...

Euthanasia

Hello, Iannan13, As you said in one of your comments concerning euthanasia, "You legalize Euthanasia, then you give the government the right to kill the sick and elderly." I would like to disagree with you. True, this kind of problem might appear if euthanasia is legalized. Most people are afraid that euthanasia can be used maliciously, as a justification for murder. Despite the fact that the argument against legalization of euthanasia sounds reasonable, especially in Russia, for instance,...

Euthanasia

Hello, Harper As you pointed out in one of your comments concerning euthanasia, "It shouldn't be the job of the doctor, since medical professionals swear an oath to protect life". Indeed, since doctors" or any medical professional"s duty is to maintain or restore human health, they take an oath in order to uphold specific ethical standards. The most famous one is the Hippocratic Oath that is historically taken by physicians. Most people tend to think that the essence of this oath is embraced by...

Abortion

Riley15
Episteme

Many different procedures exist to carry out the process of abortion. According to Birth Mothers (an organization working to help women with unwanted pregnancies), one of the most commonly used types of abortion is a saline abortion. In a saline abortion, amniotic fluid is removed from the woman and replaced by a strong saline (salt) solution. As the fetus"s lungs absorb the salt solution, it begins to suffocate. It may struggle and may even have convulsions. The saline also burns off the fetus...

I think that the smoking ban is good. Three important things to know 1.We'll mainly be debating tobacco. 2.I suck at grammar and spelling. 3. I don't like arguments like they should choose there shouldn't be a ban. Rules: 1. No arguments without source. 2. No biases 3. No foul words R1 Acceptance and definitions R2 Arguments R2 More arguments and rebuttals R3 More rebuttals R4 Constructive criticism rebuttals and closing statements. Keep your arguments simple and organiz...

Circumcision on Infants

EndlessSolitary
jakelittle135

Everyone should have the right to decide whether or not surgical procedures are performed on them, especially when it involves the permanent removal of part of their body. Since babies are too young to speak for themselves, many parents decide for them. However, it is not their body and they shouldn't be allowed to treat it like it is. If the baby boy wants to be circumcised, let him make that choice when he is old enough....
