Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs

frank_gore_is_da_best

Claim: Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs Argument: Over 98% of abortion cases happen prior to the 21st week of pregnancy(1). Over 59% of abortion cases happen prior to the 9th week of pregnancy(1). My argument will rest on maintaining that abortion is morally permissible at least up to nine weeks into the pregnancy. 1. http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html...

Cats are the greatest animal known to man.

Let me start this debate with a definition. Cat: Any of several carnivores of the family Felidae, as the lion, tiger, leopard or jaguar, etc. This of course also includes your common domestic cat. Animal: any member of the kingdom Animalia, comprising multicellular organisms that have a well-defined shape and usually limited growth, can move voluntarily, actively acquire food and digest it internally, and have sensory and nervous systems that allow them to respond rapidly to stimuli:...

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

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.

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...

Why shouldn't gay marriage be legal

mariahsaywhaaa

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....

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.

candice
Jlconservative

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...

Gay Marriages

I am in favor of gay mariages, because it is who they must be. God might not have said it was right, but did he also say that being straight is right. Now i do not want to bring god into any of this because most peopele do not believe in him. Now, what are the people doing to us, what are they doing for you to dislike them? Nothing at all. Once someone told me how do you know you are gay if you never had sex with a guy, and i simply answered how do you know you are straight if you never had sex...

Everyone is at least a little gay.

I've heard people say that everyone is a little gay or somewhat bi-sexual. I disagree. I think there are folks that are not sexually attracted to the same gender in the slightest....
