The government should implement a special "junk food" tax

Canuckleball
Benshapiro

I will be arguing that a special tax, to be implemented only on foods deemed to be harmful to the health of an individual, would be beneficial for society. I accept the burden of proof in this debate. I propose that the junk food tax (JFT from this point on) will have several effects, namely giving citizens more incentive to choose healthy food more often, create more revenue for local independent farmers, decrease the amount of government spending on healthcare, and create tax money for other a...

On Balance, GM Foods are Beneficial for Humans to Use.

Arcanas

It's about time that I tried a serious debate (without forfeiting), so might as well. I will use the same rules as Bsh1's debates, albeit slightly altered to my tastes: Rules: 1. No forfeits 2. Any citations or foot/endnotes must be individually provided in the text of the debate 3. No new arguments in the final round 4. Maintain a civil and decorous atmosphere 5. No trolling or semantics 6. No K's of the topic 7. My opponent accepts all of the following definitions...

P.E. mandatory in grades 10,11,12

Having physical education in high school is a great way to encourage youth to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle throughout their life. With PE, they will have to become active, and it is proven that exercise actually increases dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels in the brain: all chemicals that stimulate feel-good pleasure and calmness, or what we feel as "happiness". This is can last up to 12 hours, which is substantially longer than what happiness laziness can get you. In 2013,...

Vaccines cause brain damage and autism.

JakeLamotta
ScrinTech

Since the vaccine schedule was increased in the 1990's autism rates and other learning disorders have sky rocketed. Thousands of parents all have the same story of their kid's receiving the MMR vaccine and their kids falling into autism shortly after. When a doctor suggested that he may have found a link between autism and vaccines and published a paper in a journal, all hell broke loose. This doctor has been discredited, and anyone who suggests that he was on to something is vilified. Why w...

abortion should be legal if rape or incest

singin_abbey
Arcanas

I think that abortion should be legal if you have been raped by a relative or a random stranger. Imagine if you got raped and pregnant then you had to carry that baby for NINE months. Waking up everyday with that child having to relive that situation over and over again. Yes, God wouldn't want you to kill a child but he wouldn't want this to happen to you also. F.Y.I- I am not saying that killing a baby is alright. I am against killing a baby if you are just playing around....

Physician assisted suicide (Euthanasia)

The right to life is perhaps the most basic and fundamental of all our rights. However, with every right comes a choice. The right to speech does not remove the option to remain silent; the right to vote brings with it the right to abstain. In the same way, the right to choose to die is implicit in the right to life. The degree to which physical pain and psychological distress can be tolerated is different in all humans. Quality of life judgments are private and personal, thus only the sufferer...
