Abortion is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Apologician
TheSkeptic

I'm going to offer a brief outline of the pro-life position that I defend, and I will engage in further argumentation in the subsequent rounds. The fundamental issue regarding the abortion debate is not women's rights or other factors which concern personal autonomy, but over the status of the unborn child. Variants of the personal choice argument presuppose that the unborn child is not a human person, for if the unborn child is indeed a human person, then no amount of freedom justifies its e...

Should homosexual marriage be alowed?

TheLastEmperorOfDebate
LakevilleNorthJT

Its true that each person have their rights to marry whomever they choose,but how would their children feel about having 2 dads or 2 moms?,if say the couples would adopt children.Then there's a probability that their children will be homosexuals too, and that probability is pretty great, since their parents are homosexuals therefore creating an influence on their children, just like straight parents raise straight kids, creating an influence on the kids....

Breast feeding in public should be embraced by Americans, and excepted.

Other countries around the world are very comfortable with breastfeeding. I recently saw a picture of Hugo Chavez talking to, and embrassing a Venezuelan citizen openly breastfeeding. What do you think George Bush would do if he saw a woman breastfeeding while shaking hands? Why are American's so closed off and sometimes offended by women feeding they're babies naturally? Breastfeeding is the healthiest choice for your infant. There are no antibodies in formula. The fat's in breast milk help...

Before i begin i would like to say that i am not a rascist,nor Nazi,etc...and this is based on what i see in my school and schools nationwide. I am white and i am Scots-Irish and German but most importantly i am an American. When are the blacks going to start saying they are Americans instead of African-Americans. We don't go around saying we are European Americans,Asian Americans etc......we are a unified country...we know your black you know im white. In the inner-city there are many young kid...

Why shouldn't gay marriage be legal

mariahsaywhaaa
uiop

Gay marriage should be legal, since when does anyone get off by being able to tell someone else how to live there life. If we claim we have equal rights then we should practice what we preach and allow same sex marriage. How would allowing two people weather they be the same sex or not get married affect the whole world? In reality it should only affect that couple, and everyone else should mind there own business....

People treat the debates like a poll. "Vote for who you already agreed with." and I can Prove it.

I've lost nearly all my debates to people who have clearly never debated anything before in their lives and have no respect for logical or scientific rigor. People treat the voting period like a poll or a survey. I even find myself tempted to do this. I'm going to launch a series of debates to prove it....

Being a stay at home mom is one of the most important jobs a woman can do.

candice
Logical-Master

As a mother, of two very young children (and 7 month old a 22 month old to be exact) I consider myself to have a job. My job is to raise two healthy, happy independent people. My children are not just babies to me. They are people I'm shaping, and preparing for this world. What you do while your children are in your home effects them when they're out of of your home. When did being a stay at home mother become some kind of a let down for women in the eyes of society? The aptitude of a female isn...

Animal rights is an unjustified ethical doctrine.

TheSkeptic
Lexicaholic

I thank my opponent for accepting this debate - I've been wanting to have this debate with my opponent specifically for awhile, so I hope this turns out well. To put it simply, it seems that Charlie here is one of the more prominent PETA advocates on this website, with his slew of PETA debates. Since it seems to be quite evident that he is in favor of PETA, one can easily draw the conclusion that he is also an animal right's activist - after all, if he isn't then he'd most likely be a hypocri...

Children should be lied to

brittwaller
advidiun

The last time I did this debate I was a little unsatisfied with both the arguments and the results. Lying to children, whether in the form of perpetuating silly myths like the existence of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, or by withholding factual answers to their questions about subjects such as sex and death, is bad, primarily for the children themselves but also for society as a whole. Lying either directly or by omission is harmful because children eventually find...
