This is our first round in the 2011 DDO tournament. Due to future time constraints by Danielle, she can go first to get her argument out there while I finish my initial case. Pretty hot and controversial topic here, but I hope we can keep it civil. Good luck!...

The legal smoking age should be raised from 18 to 21. Most adults who smoke started smoking at the age of 18. Raising the smoking age would cause a decrease in the number of young people who smoke.

I do not consider abortion, in any regard, murder so long as it is done by a medical professional.

If the mother were to die during the pregnancy, there is a likely chance the child will in consequence. Think of the instances where the pregnancy is killing the murder; is it murder then? Or how about an adolesce...

S. hydraulic fracturing for natural gas has not caused widespread harm to the public"s health or...

Junk food should not be banned in school

Hi, we are happy to be here to discuss such a important topic. I believe that Junk food should not be banned in school. Because, I think the banning junk food is not a good way to decrease children's obesity. It is just a remove children's food option. There is another way to decrease children's obesity:more exercise, healthy food, etc. Thank you....
