Please keep the first round solely for acceptance. I have taken the stance that being a victim of rape does not justify having an abortion.

I am sure this debate will greatly benefit my paper and I appreciate your time....

I think that gay people should be allowed to get married. I mean why not? They are no different than us.. They haven't chosen to be gay. So many people say they choose to be gay.

juras
Truth_seeker

hello! the statement is man loves woman out of compulsion and not out of necessity. i stand firmly for the motion. love developed among man and woman for the sake of their offspring. man and woman needed to come together and well have sex. but just because a man and a woman reproduces doesn't mean that they love each other. it is a social and biological compulsion borne out of concern of offspring....
