Is veganism a positive movement?

annawaters
Andrea25

For me, the answer is simple. The overwhelming evidence shows that veganism is a positive practice from many points of view, i.e the environment, animal welfare, and of course health. This is merely an introduction to further arguments I may present, so my opponent's argument should be similarly introductory....

To open the debate:"That abortion should not be a crime", I will state the definition for the topic.

Is healthcare a right to us as US citizens and should it be free for everyone?

allo4ka

It seems like most people are caught up in a bubble where they are not poor enough to receive free healthcare or not rich enough to afford the procedures, treatment, and medications that they need. If the people are to contribute to society to the fullest extent, then don't they have the right to free healthcare? As the country with some of the most advanced medical technology we should be embarrassed to have so many people who cannot afford therapy for a mental illness or something even more ma...

Should Marijuana be legalized?

WisdomOnline
Frost07

Marijuana should be legalized because it is proven that it is much less harmful than legal drugs such as Tobacco, Alcohol, and Pharmaceuticals. Legalizing it will also boost the economy, and allow for more tax breaks, and could help fund healthcare and education. This is because the government can place a tax on marijuana. It also has medical benefits, especially for cancer therapy. Another Pro, it will reduce the amount of people in jail. And it is not a gateway drug, since the Netherlands lega...

Should braces be looked at as cosmetic like unnecessary plastic surgery?

Immaloser
bfchrisb

I've heard that ALL braces serve a medical purpose. Crooked teeth is unhealthy and can cause gum disease, difficulty proper cleaning teeth, bad breath, Tooth wear/damage, and a higher risk of injury. Therefore braces are never FULLY cosmetic. However a friend of mine says that these are just excuses to make us feel like we're not just being vain. She says that most of the time braces are cosmetic and they should be seen the same as other uneeded cosmetic procedures like a nose job or implants. I...

Vegan vs. Carnivore Diet

StudentDebater
joshuroar

Veganism and or vegetarianism is how our bodies are built. We are not meant to captivate, torture, and eat other concious beings. We need to eat the closest things we can get to the earth, raw vegetables and limited processed foods. Why would you support factory farming? Most people, when asked, don't even know where their meat comes from. If you are actually a conscientious human that actually cares, check out the book Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows by Melanie Joy. If you agree with...

Should the US Government Ban Smoking?

PanicAtTheDoctor
Bremners

The government should not put a ban on smoking. Although smoking is dangerous to both the smoker and those around them, there are other ways to deter this action, as well as protect others, without limiting the rights of citizens. While I admit that the right to smoke is not an enumerated right, one can assume that it would be under the 8th amendment, which protects the non-enumerated rights of citizens. Rather than ban smoking for all, there should simply be more regulations about where people...
