if we would allow partial birth abortion, by extension, we should also allow killing the baby during an accidental birth that occurs during an attempted abortion. i would like a rhetorical debate. i am actually against this. but, i want someone who is for partial birth abortion etc but say they are against this to debate me. i am aware that partial birth is banned by federal law now... but it's a hypothetical debate. (we could also consider pregnancies that are beginning to be delievered, a...

+++++++ "general consensus among scientists as published in the Wall Street Journal in 1994 titled "Mainstream Science on Intelligence" shows a consensus among scientists that average IQ are as followed in America. Blacks 85. Whites 100. East Asians 106. Further studies done and published in science journals show IQ to be overwhelmingly genetic. Minnesota Twins Study by Dr. Thomas Bouchard, the most famous twin study done, shows that identical twins separated at birth are significantly more sim...

Whoever accepts to take this argument will be talking about how we are getting gas from the middle instead of Canada. Which to me makes absolutely no sense. Thank you, -Tyler...

Altering our body to be fit for society...

Throughout our lives, society has told us how we should look to be deemed beautiful. We try to reach an impossible goal, and waste effort in trying to achieve that goal. We look at these "picture perfect" people and envy their flawless beauty. However, in reality, they are just as imperfect as the people society criticizes. We are so insecure that we go as far as to alter ourselves entirely to achieve that desired flawless appearance. Billions of dollars are spent annually on cosmetic and hair...

Spanking your child is considered abuse

ctfurn24

I have no idea as to why parents think its okay to hit children. Even if a child is acting out violence is never the answer. Not only is hitting a child hurting them physically, but it's also emotionally and socially hurting them. Some children grow up to be an extremely violent person. A child that gets abused at home is most likely to end up being socially unstable and may even suffer from severe depression. There are so many cases in the world where a child had been killed by their abusive pa...

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

One should not be forced to say the pledge of allegience in school.

I will take the pro position that it is wrong to force a student or child to recite the pledge of allegience. Forced: enforced or compulsory http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/forced...
