Is an Organ Lottery Ethical?

connorgon
SPENCERJOYAGE14

To begin, I'd like to go to the liberty to explain what the organ lottery is. The organ lottery is when every person's name is put into a drawing persay, and if your name was drawn whenever someone needed organs, you are required by law to have all your organs harvested for people who need them. I firmly believe that this is not OK. Imagine, you're a 6 year old boy and your name is drawn from this lottery and you are forced to end your life that moment for people who need organs. The reason p...

Should Students in Public American Schools be allowed to wear hats?

UltimateThies
djwood

I believe that people students in American Public Schools should be allowed to wear hats. Many people including myself believe they should be able to express their own style, and that includes hats. People make the argument that they can hide things in them, but if they wanted to hide something, it would be very easy to put it someplace else such as their waistband, inside their shirt, or even just their pocket....

Zaradi
Vox_Veritas

Round structure will be as such: Round One: AFF PRESENTS CASE, THIS ROUND IS NOT JUST FOR ACCEPTANCE. Round Two: Neg case/rebuttals, Aff rebuttals Round Three: N...
