Should Abortion be illegal?

NoorH606

The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court's 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. I believe abortion should continue on to be legal because as the independence state we are free we all have freedom some people use that freedom has an excuse or to made bad choices but we have no right to fight or break the law. I really believe that abortion is wrong but it's n...

Fast food should be illegal. It's unsafe to eat. People should vote for them so they can be closed down. An old saying is that fast food means fast death. If you eat it, you can have some medical and health problems if you have it a lot....

bfkennedy
NPhyzics

As crazy as it may sound, it may just be the best option yet.

This debate is part of Freeman's tournament, Round 2. I will be arguing against the minimum wage. Bob is a store owner who is looking to employ some workers for help with his store. He puts out job offers, and finds a person, Joe, willing to stack cans for him. Joe's ability to stack cans is worth about $6 per hour, so Bob offers him $5.50 per hour to do the job, and Joe accepts. However, the local beurocracy declares that there must be a minimum wage of $7 per hour. If Bob hires Joe, he w...
