Exposing children to secondhand smoke is abuse and should be made illegal in every U.S. state.

I will be pro for defining smoking near children as abuse and establishing laws against it for that reason. Round 1 is acceptance. I intend to support the notion that it is child abuse based on the legal definition of child abuse. The definition, according to the CAPTA Act of the United States, is:"Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation"; or

theisticscuffles

This debate is about whether or not sex ed should be required to be taught in public middle and high schools. Pro will take the side that it should, and would benefit the children, and Con will argue either abstinence only should be taught, or there should be no sex ed at all.

Murder is a crime, so shouldn't abortion also be a crime, because in both cases a life is being taken away from another person. If a murder gets the death pen...

Drug addicts are just misunderstood people?

PurpleFace1995
bman7720

It's honestly unfair to say drug addicts should be in jail right away. There's a reason why they did drugs in the first place. Yes, it's their concious decision to choose to do drugs but then again they went through a lot. There's always a reason why. So do they deserve to be punished or they're just misunderstood and give them a chance?...
