Should the nazi data collected in the holocaust be used?

iramski
TheSpoonyRealist

Millions of people died in the name of what they called science yet these expiriments were unlawful, unethical and unreasonable. Because these expiriments weren't based on scientific hypothesis and theories formed over time most people call them biased basically because they were racially motivated. I strongly agree, Jewishvirtuallibrary.org explained "Nazi Concentration Camp science is often branded as bad science. First, it is doubtful that physiological responses of the tortured and maimed vi...

I think that putting animals down that haven't been adopted yet is cruel. They deserve to live and have a chance of finding the perfect forever home. Animals at the shelter are there to find loving homes, not to die before they can. Animal lives are precious things....

Awesome_Sponge_Turtle

Hi everybody, your friendly neighbourhood Mister_Man here. BrianTheLiberal and I have been having some friendly "good" back-and-fourths in comments and polls about white privilege, so I'd appreciate it if he would accept this. However if anyone else chooses to show how white privilege actually exists, I'd love to talk! White privilege is the idea that white people have it easier than every other race (mostly in America, but let's use Canada too) simp...

Everstart
2ninjacat

Cancer is an acceptable price to pay for the morality of waiting past puberty to reproduce which leaves the window open for the epigenetic damage to accumulate from environmental pollution sources, causing cancer. 3. Treating cancer is better than preventing it, no matter the cost of life. About 200 Billion a year is spent on cance...

Should adolescents be able to watch porn?

Grilled_Cheese
asherphil

Many mothers dont allow their adolescent son/daughter to watch porn which is completely understandable but why is it wrong.If you ask me porn is a great way to lower rape numbers and sex offending crimes.As being a adolescent hormones are high it is quite hard to stop thinking of this simple pleasure especially now where 13 and 12 year olds are getting pregnant.I believe the only way from letting your teen daughter/son from getting pregnant is porn.Teenagers simply aren't physically and mentally...
