Mandatory Drug Testing

TheBreadBasket
jq

Drug tests are about 40-51 dollars per individual test. A yearly cost of around 10,000 to 1,000,000 a year. While they might be "effective" they are very costy. At pleasent middle school in ohio, they had wasted about 1 million dollars, and had only got three positives. In a place with some people known to be druggards, you would have gotten more positives. There are chances for a False-Positive or a False-Negative. Meaning that person that did not do drugs is getting convicted, or someone who d...

Should our children be vaccinated?

SlenderKitty
CristianGeek

This is an open debate. My position is that vaccines do more good than harm, and that everybody should be vaccinated, unless you are allergic/have other health problems. Obviously, I am looking for an anti-vax opponent, hopefully one who actually uses science instead of spewing conspiracy theories and self-experience. Oh, and by the way, I don't care what happened with your facebook friend. Unless he/she is a doctor, don't bother making an argument about it....

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....

Abortion is a mother's right.

Torvald
InVinoVeritas

It should be the prerogative of the mother to have a fetus or embryo aborted, since it is not a child, but an extension of her own body, and remains such until the third trimester. I challenge anyone to make a valid case for why a mother should not be allowed to have an abortion. The debate shall be conducted under the following rules: 1. No trolling 2. Ordered, at least to some extent, and civil conduct 3. Legible and comprehensible English 4. No sensationalism; unfounded statements like...
