The first pregnant man was not a man, thus he is not the first pregnant man

funnycn
xjustbeyoux

I hold the position that the first pregnant "man" was NOT a man at birth, thus he/she should NOT be considered the first pregnant man. Con, or you, hold the position that he is technically a man, thus should be considered the first pregnant man.

Human Population Levels Must be Drastically Reduced

noahrudd

The human race has reached a point where roughly 7.3 billion humans live on this planet. Throuh our own selfishness, the atmospheres and ecosystems of our planet are already altered unchangingly.Even if the current trends are reversed the planet has been irreversably brought to the point where no one can reverse the effects. The global population is expanding unsustainably and natural disasters have huge effects of millions of people dying as a result of this. While in theo...

The use of torture is justified in ticking time bomb situations.

RoyLatham
jopo

For the purposes of this debate "torture" is defined as those methods of interrogation revealed as being used by the CIA on GITMO detainees. These methods include physical and psychological stress, the most severe being water boarding. The methods are non-lethal. An ABC News article describes the methods, at least in general: [1. http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/Investigation/story?id=1322866.] The article says tha...

OtakuJordan

Thank you in advance for accepting, Con.As Pro, I shall be arguing that abortion should be illegal with no exceptions. Abortion shall be defined in this debate as "a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus."[1]The first round will be for acceptance. Trolling and insults will result in a full seven-point loss.Sources1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion

Is there a reason why most black fathers are not involved in their children's life?

McCray
intellectuallyprimitive

It bothers me to see black children without a father, because I'm one of those children. It seems as if after the 1970's African American fathers disappeared from their children's life, and I really want to know why. It is proven fact that after the crack- cocaine epidemic millions of black families were hindered. I know that all black fathers were not addicted to crack-cocaine, but it surely seemed to effect all black fathers. Statistic shows that when an African American male is raised without...

Are girls more than a distraction at school?

alyssbu
Credence

Girls should be allowed to wear whatever they want to school, as long as its not showing their, yano. We are telling society that " boys will be boys " and they will check girls out. Why should girls be punished for wearing what they like to wear? Boys are the ones that should be reprimanded for being boys! As long as girls aren't wearing bikinis, why not? If the shorts are above their fingertips, and those shorts are some of the only shorts their families can afford, how is it fair for them to...

Bring back the death penalty for murderers in England.

stef16
leoghakj

My opening argument is simple: Murderers do not care about the human rights of their victims, so should not have any rights themselves. Article 3 of the universal declaration of human rights is "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person." (http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml#a2) The murderer denied their victim that, so why should they get it themselves? If the murderer won't respect other people's human rights they should forfeit their own human rights as well....

Legal Prostitution in India

karamvirz
republicofdhar

Prostitution is perhaps the oldest practice if not profession but , still our civilisation is not evolved enough to accept it.I am concerned not because I want us to respect sex workers or that the whole profession intrigues me. Our society is in crisis today.Women , young girls , children are being raped , molested , abused and what not.Newspapers and news channels are flooded with incidents which are bound to shake our souls and we the people , the mob , have merely remained a witness.Stric...

Christianity inhibits US advancement

B_2_the_O_B
Mike_10-4

I argue that Christianity inhibits advancement of the United States. For this debate, let's define advancement as 'development or improvement' Before I begin, let me take this opportunity to point out that I am not here to attack Christianity or Christians. The debate is centered on the negative influence of Christianity (or lack thereof, as Con might argue) on the United States in key elements of advancement such as politics, finance, education, and our society in general. I am not arguin...
