Vaccines should be mandatory

SlenderKitty
Thrillogy

I believe vaccines should be mandatory (unless you have an allergy or some other medical problem), because it is for the greater good of the public. My preferred opponent would be an anti-vaxxer, although if you are a pro-vaxxer and against mandatory vaccinations, that is fine too....

Fast-Food should be permanently banned globally.

Fast food should not be banned because in the U.S. alone there are over 200,000 restaurant locations. Revenue has grown from $6 billion in 1970 to over $160 billion last year at an 8.6% annualized rate (1). The fast food industry also creates around three and a half million jobs for people who would lose their job if fast food was banned (2). As well as creating revenue and jobs, another obvious reason not to ban fast food is that it is fast and simple to get. For college students who are too bu...

High School Drug Testing. Is it good?

Drug Testing should not be allowed in schools. It causes discomfort, is expensive, and has chances for mistakes. I will start up more heated when someone accepts......

we need to help stop poverty

espinosa5644

Poverty Poverty is hunger. Poverty is lack of shelter. Poverty is being sick and not being able to see a doctor. Poverty is not being able to go to school, not knowing how to read, not being able to speak properly. Poverty is not having a job, it is fear for the future, it is living from hand to mouth. Poverty is losing a child to illness brought about by unclean water. Poverty is powerlessness, lack of freedom. Poverty has many faces, changing from place and across time, and has been described...

Should the e cigarette be available to everyone

Debateteam1
mogopogosowhat

I don't think it should be sold to everyone. I think the main purpose is to help people quit smoking. I feel that it will entice the younger generation to use this method of vaping, when there are side effects involved with inhaling any substance into the lungs....

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....

Abortion

Abortion should be the woman's choice. There is a lot of mental preparation for pregnancy and childbirth. It is the woman's body, why wouldn't she be able to choose?...
