Abortion for socio-economic reasons

NathanGimel
Unstobbaple

The format will be Round 1: Initial arguments, Round 2: rebuttal and defense, Rounds 3 & 4 more of the same, and Round 5 closing arguments. We"ll be arguing about abortions that are carried out for socio-economic reasons. This is sensible since around 98.3% of all abortions are undergone for purely socio-economic reasons, naught to do with health, rape, incest, etc. (this from official data taken from surveys done by state agencies and the Alan Guttmacher Institute) So, I will base my argu...

Thor Can Defeat Wonder Woman

Yes-JustAHighSchooler
v.dtilak

All forms welcomed (each contender chooses which forms they want to put into each round- kind of like making a team of different forms). First round is base form. Ex.- R.1 Thor R.2 King Thor R.3 Necro-Thor... so on so forth. No WHAT IFS or this COULD happen. Please do research. Do not attack person (will be called out and any point tied to it will be disregarded). Please be respectful, this is a friendly argument done out of love for comics and debate. Picture proof welcome- not required,...

belief in free will has emotional benefits to the believer and results in more actual freedom

tychicus12
KruelBotFeir

The whole lie of free will looks good to those inside it because it seems to offer the idea of an ability to get "out from under" a bad situation in general and to empower a journey toward good actions to reap positive emotional benefits within a larger emotional economy shared by others. However, the actual existence inside the lie of free will is very different. The very rules and norms fostered and the infinite 'how-tos' of getting to a place where one recognizes freedom has been "kept" "...

Wealthy nations have an obligation to provide developmental assistance to other nations

BrettBoelkens
tychicus12

*Please forgive my english. This is badly formatted since this was copied from my LD case, and I wanted to see how it is. Other responses won't be so. According to the World Health Organization, 5 and a half million children die every year, strictly under the age of 5. That"s about 15,000 a day, 600 an hour, and 10 or so a minute. That means that before I reach the end of this sentence, some child very likely will die in agony This preventable suffering is morally unacceptable. By extension,...

Social Networking Companies Should be Prevented from Censoring Opposing Ideals

Alden_Kliem
Smooosh

Social Networking companies have, for a long time, censored opposing ideas, whether it be political or not. We have seen this multiple times throughout sites like twitter or Facebook censoring or even preventing (by taking down pages) conservative speakers or people, while promoting liberal public figures or organizations like Anti-fa or Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. This has resulted in the removing of opposing ideals and the spreading of violent and hateful ideas that lead to assault, in the...
