Students should be allowed to be on their phones during school hours.

Phones are devices that have the ability to be used for lots of things these days, entertainment, connections between friends and family, and most importantly, it has the power to go on the internet. I will be listing the reasons why students should be allowed to be on their phones. One very good "con" reasoning would be that phones distract the user of the phone, and could very well distract the students around the user of the phone. Lets do an example and have the debate going from there. S...

Smoking Should Be Banned

AHolasek20

I believe that smoking should be banned in the U.S, and apparently everyone else does too, according to a poll on debait.org where a majority of the voters voted that we should ban smoking. I also have two other reasons that I believe we should ban smoking. My first reason is that cigarettes aren't necessary in the first place. People spend all of their money on cigarettes, when they don't need them at all. Quitting is easier than they all make it seem. My second reason is that we all know t...

Abortion should be an option

LetsHaveSumFun
TBSmothers

Abortion is a controversial thing in modern society. Personally, it doesn't make sense to cause an uproar. A mother has every right to do what she wants with her baby. She created that life herself and she can easily take it away. Are you going through the pain and suffering of having 20 pounds out your vagina? If the mother sees she is not fit for a baby then she has every right to do so. Then, hordes of people starts whining "Oh no the fetus has so much potential!" and "The fetus c...

Death Penalty- (Brief, Quick, Debate)

BrownIsBest
theisticscuffles

Death is truly an unusually severe punishment. Unusual in it's pain, unusual in it's suffering, it's finality, and it's enormity. Because of the nature of the death penalty, it treats those humans who are on death row as non humans toyed with and discarded. No matter what the crime, death should never be the choice. If anything, the worse punishment should be a life sentence. Rather than death, we should im...
