Smoking in public should be illegal because smoking leads to numerous health problems. [c] It has been linked to respiratory problems in people who do not smoke who spend a lot of time with smokers or who live with smokers.

Spanking your child is considered abuse

ctfurn24
GenesisCreation

I have no idea as to why parents think its okay to hit children. Even if a child is acting out violence is never the answer.

A child that gets abused at home is most likely to end up being socially unstable and may even suffer from severe depression. There are so many cases in the world where a child had been killed by their abusive pa...

What is more important humanity as a whole, or parts of humanity (individuals)

THEBOMB
mb852

I believe that the whole is more important than the parts. Without the whole there can be no parts. For example, two 1s make a 2 but without a 2 there are no 1s. The whole has to be preserved over parts. This ensures the human race will survive....
