Should doctor assisted suicide be legal?

Sebastian_Ley
Sapphique

This is my first debate, so I figured I would start off with a subject that is both fascinating and controversial. Doctor assisted suicide is the process of a medical professional euthanizing a patient to relieve them from pain, be it mental or physical. The debate will be structured as such: Round 1 is acceptance, round 2 is your main points, (no rebuttals), round 3 is rebuttals, and round 4 is closing statements. I am debating for the Pro side of this debate. I hope to have a good debate,...

I hope that my opponent and I can learn from this Debate....

Fashion is an invented social construct primarily used to reinforce elitism

Futurepresident2048

New here but please feel free to challenge me if new yourself or experienced pro. I currently feel that the fashion industry is an invented social construct primarily used to reinforce elitism, and provides no benefit to society and infact is often a overall negative. To clarify 'fashion' I do not mean people dressing the way they want to, but more the industry;Catwalks, designer brands, magazines, the idea of 'trend' & 'trendiness'. I believe that for example 70's style clothing looks wo...

Kids learn just as much at a public school then a private school.

The false accusation is made everyday. "My kid will learn more at a private school, and my kid will then excel more and not do drugs." Before you can even write, your destiny is written. Your destiny doesn't include a type of school. Your kid has a personality. It's not the type of school that will keep your kids out of drugs. It's your kid. Your kid can do well at either school. Its up to the kid how much they want to...

Fat Acceptance: Good or Bad?

gmangamer
ProConIK

There is a new movement going around titled the "Fat Acceptance Movement". Their goal is for every overweight/obese person to be treated the same as a healthy person. Why should people be against this? What does this mean for you? 1. Healthcare costs rise as people care less about their body. "Obesity-related medical treatment costs between $147 and $210 billion a year" (http://stateofobesity.org/facts-economic-costs-of-obesity/) . Taxpayers are facing increasing costs from this, it is esti...

Can we understand death?

TheJuniorVarsityNovice

ForewordThis debate has been done to find a good debating partner to do philosophical discussions with. The topic is one from about a year ago, with I and a now inactive user profjb. Other Philosophy debates on my profile will be used for the next debate, and then I will probably start thinking of new topics.I look forward to finding a smart and mature partner to discuss things with.Debate

Science Refutes God

n7natnat
TalkingWaffle69

The motion is science refutes God. I have the distinct advantage here of arguing in favor of the motion because in fact we have evidence, reason, logic, rationality, and empirical methods on our side, whereas the opponent has vague hopes and fears, and they're arguing in favor of a motion that's hanging on for its existence by mere shreds of emotional and ideological spaghetti, much like this type provided by the flying spaghetti monster, one of the equally irrational gods which science provides...
