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...

EndarkenedRationalist

Yes - 1 Corinthians 6:18 (New International Version 2011) 1Co 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/risk/gender/msm/facts/ Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) represent approximately 2% of the United States population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV.

Drug Legalization in North America

Mister_Man
SiriusTrekkie

I would say worldwide but that would be too unrealistic. If my opponent is willing to debate against worldwide drug legalization, then even better! If not, then North America it is. Obviously this wouldn't be as simple as saying "alright, it's legal; have at her!" So I will add a couple points. -ALL types of drugs are legally sold by the government much like cannabis is being sold in Washington-the government will keep track of who has what drug

I'm all for abortion. I think that it's totally acceptable for women to have abortions if that's what they want and its not like commiting a murder because the fetus hasn't been born yet....

Eating meat is healthy.

Maddieluv918
Domr

Meat is unhealthy in most every way imaginable. Compare people who don't eat meat's physical and emotional health to people who do. People who consume meat regularly tend to weigh more than people who don't. Red and white meats have been proven to contribute to heart disease, colon cancer, stomach cancer, heart attacks, diabetes, and stroke. This isn't just about personal gain, either. Anyone with an inkling of compassion can say animal abuse is wrong. Yet many of those same people consume me...
