This House Would Ban Animal Testing

Hello everyone. I am here today to propose the motion that this house would ban animal testing. My model is that we will phase out all animal testing over the next ten years while governments, the EU and the UN etc. fund research into new alternative methods. My first point is that animals have a right not to be harmed. 100 million vertebraes are experimented on around the world each year and unfortunately, not all of them have been treated well. You are probably familiar with the Silver Spr...

Should helmets be mandatory?

MWonderWolf
mnstr

The government wants wearing helmets to be a law. Although it's crazy, it has already been instituted in counties in 22 states! The idea of making this lunacy a law originated when two tween girls suggested it to their city. People should not be forced to wear a helmet, and it should only be advised. This includes the facts that we have the right of choice, helmets can exist as a hazard, and people get out less often when they are forced to wear a helmet that they might not even have....
