if a healthy infant can be saved instead of aborted later in pregnancy... it should be requried

dairygirl4u2c
Stephen_Hawkins

in cases where mother's life is at risk, but the healthy baby can be safely removed instead of aborted... this should be required. after six months or so, abortion in the US is restricted to only cases involving health of the mother. (to be sure, this includes much abuse for 'mental health' etc) if even a healthy baby MUST be aborted to save the mother, msot would agree it's the right thing to do. to be sure, however.... healthy babies are too often aborted in the name of saving the mother,...

Homosexuality is Morally Wrong, Therefore Unjust, Gay Marriage must therefore be illegal.

Rhetorician
gt4o2007

Homosexuality is morally wrong, and therefore unjust. I am compelled against my beliefs, to accept that homosexuality is a very personal matter, one which may bring with it the love, adornment, and care of one man to another or one woman to another. In these respects, homosexuality is a good thing, it encourages love, adornment, caring, and even acceptance. It is also true that we should learn to accept all people, no matter their sexuality, race, age, gender, or otherwise. All people should...

This House Believes That On Balance The Holocaust Was Detrimental To Society!

Ajabi

Greetings! To start off, no I am not racist, or a Nazi sympathizer, I just thought this would be an interesting thing to debate. I am in no way supporting the Holocaust, and find it nothing but worthy of condemnation. That being said I would like to debate this topic. I believe the motion is pretty clear: my opponent has to argue that the harm outweighed the good, while I will argue the opposite. The judges for this debate are: airmax1227, debatability, Envisage, bluesteel, Subutai, b...

It is hard enough in today's world to live without having one indiscretion you had at the ripe old age of let's say twenty years follow you and hunt you down. After you've committed your CHUMP crime, a Driving While Impaired, Possession of a Controlled Substance (namely marijuana), Drinking Under Age, and an array of other NON-VIOLENT crimes, you grow up. As a part of the "grown up" experience you consider that you need a job...you begin filling out online applications, you walk into the variety...

The United States ought to submit to the jurisdiction of an international court designed to prosecut

behairry2981
Metz

I affirm the resolution resolved: The United States ought to submit to the jurisdiction of an international court designed to prosecute crimes against humanity. Now some definitions: Webster-dictionary defines ought as: to be bound in duty or by moral obligation. Merriam-Webster defines to submit as: to yield oneself to the authority or will of another. The term crimes against humanity has come to mean anything atrocious committed on a large scale. This is not, however, the original meanin...
