There Should Be a Fat Tax Introduced

TheAdamb99
FreedomBeforeEquality

We often hear calls for a junk food tax or "fat tax" when there"s discussion of Australia"s growing obesity problem. The idea behind such a tax is that it would enable governments to subsidise healthy foods so that they"re more affordable, and make unhealthy foods comparatively expensive so people buy less of them. But would they really? Is cost really the most powerful determinant of what food products people buy? Let"s consider the likely effects of a junk food tax. Researchers claim tha...

Abortion is murder and it should be banned worldwide

RavenDebater

When an abortion is carried out, you"re killing a small, innocent human being. You"re terminating a life. Terminating a life is wrong and should be punished. Anyone performing abortions - legally and illegally - should be put in jail and given a huge fine. It"s never okay to have an abortion, and there"s no valid reasons for killing an innocent human being. Abortion should be banned worldwide, because it"s killing a human being. And killing - murder - is illegal. Abortion is murder and not on...

For me, burger is more delicious than Pizza. I don't like Pizza's texture and taste. The combinations of toppings are weird sometimes. :P...

Should the Legal Drinking Age Be Returned to 18?

c_koethe17
Kaylor

Underage drinking has been a problem for a long time. Many people believe that raising the age limit is the solution. However, after we changed the legal age limit from 18 to 21 for the first time, the number of underage drinkers increases for the next 20 years. Raising the age is also offensive to those who were once allowed to drink. lastly, raising the age limit makes it even more tempting for under aged adults to drink. Therefore America should return the lega...

Do pets improve moods?

gamacat456
bryce_mcfarland

I think yes because every pet I have ever had has always made me happy. It is also clinically proven and animals are used in many different forms of therapy. Also pets give people a chance to bond with another living organism. Now there are people who go a bit overboard and become unhappy because of all the work. BUT if you pay attention if an pet owner loses a pet in some way it is proven that the loss causes large amounts of emotional distress....

Euthanasia

First off, I would like to thank anyone who has decided to take up this debate. I would also like to establish what I mean by euthanasia, the assisted suicide of people through medical and humane conditions when the person is of a sound state of mind. Now, lets begin: I would like to start with Dr. Jack Kevorkian. For those who are unfamiliar with him, he was a medical specialist who was known for assisting people in suicide throughout the 60's. He brought questions of medical ethics during t...

Euthanasia Should be Legal in Medical Practice

JonathanVN
UchihaMadara

As the title of the debate would imply, the purpose of this argument is to discuss whether or not euthanasia should be legal in medical practices. I am against this (attacking it), and thus I would expect my opponent to argue in favor of it. The first round of five is solely for acceptance, and each person will have three whole days to respond before forfeiture of the round. May the smartest man win!...

Euthanasia, is it good or bad?

eheinrichs19
lannan13

I believe that Euthanasia is okay unless it is for another reason. Euthanasia can help someone who is suffering with cancer and cannot talk, see, hear, taste, and feel. You may be brain dead, you have nothing you can do, so you could decide to let them go. Euthanasia is good because the person, or animal suffering shouldn't have to suffer more. Some people on another debate state "It is a quick and painless death. This is better than having to die slowly in pain and fighting", said by a 21 year...
