Legalizing Euthanasia

XCalex
Opinionative

Death is final. For people battling illness, one day they may get out of bed and be ready to give up, and the next day they may be prepared to fight. This is just part of the human condition. But legalizing euthanasia would be like giving someone a loaded gun. On a day when they"re depressed or in pain " like when they"ve just received a terminal diagnosis " they may just pull the trigger. First, euthanasia undermines medical research. This is true because one of the major driving forces behin...

Super-Durp-Pig
missinformed007

Nuclear weapons are an issue that needs to be addressed. They are a threat to both humanity and our biosphere. Nuclear weapons are a literal bomb waiting to go off. I can not stress the importance that our massive stocks of WOMD be downsized significantly....

Should SATS be abolished?

Debatee_1
Hemoglobin

Hello, I have started this debate about 'Should SATS be abolished.' I have chosen 'yes' because: 1: SATS makes other people more depressed and you might get more stressed about it thinking 'I have to pass, I have to pass' 2: This is just like the 11+, which is an unneeded test as the same thing will be done again but later in the year (11+ is done when you are in year 6 but at the beginning of the year) Hopefully this is enough and if you guys want to challenge me, then go ahead. But I'm war...

Roleplay makes me sick.

Ya_Boi_Em
ApotheosisOrangutan

Roleplay is making me more sick by the minute. How people roleplay just makes me wanna die or something. How come it always involves a disease, force marriage, or love in it always? I am not against love or anything like that, but how people pretend to be people they're not makes me just throw up. They may see them as a role model or something along those lines, but they shouldn't pretend to put themselves in the situations that they're "role model" goes through. They shouldn't pretend to date s...

Should you step in to monitor a parent talking insultingly to a child

debatemoez
Ya_Boi_Em

First you have to determine that the words being spoken to/at the child are insulting in both words used and tone/volume of voice. If it is obvious in any reasonable person's definition of insultingly - then YES! Step in and be a peace maker. Do not abuse the parent or his/her right to discipline their charge, but rather chose a tone and words that will calm the situation so that you can bring into focus the real reason for this open berating. The parent, in all hope, will discover their error...
