"Faye Wattleton, the longest reigning president of the largest abortion provider in the United States"Planned Parenthood"argued as far back as 1997 that everyone already knows that abortion kills.

Should books be banned?

Giulsco
micah98

Should controversial books be banned or should they not be banned? I read the book "The Sun Also Rises" just after finding out it was a banned book. I do not think it should be banned and my opinion is voiced in the link below. Comment and let me know what you think both on here and on the blog. It would be a lot of help with my English assignment! Thanks! https://breakfastnbooks.wordpress.com/2015/04/13/banning-the-sun-also-rises/comment-page-1/#comment-7...

Medea is Responsible for her Actions

Salemod
Hansfordl

Pro 1. Both parties agree that the debate will be in english. 2. Medea is responsible for her actions 3. The philosopher Seneca believes that anger is something that can be controlled 4. Back in Medea's time, there was no court of law, trials, or psychiatrists. 5. Jealousy is not a plausible reason to kill children. 6. The laws in her times stated that men are allowed to divorce women whenever they wanted. 7. No where in the definition of infidelity does it state that it allows one to...

Human Cloning

Canuckleball
dxdre

I stumbled across the poll about human cloning, and thought it would be an interesting debate. I see nothing inherently wrong with human cloning, and therefore will be arguing for. It has numerous potential medical benefits, and while it may not turn out to be useful it should certainly be researched more. BOP will have to be shared, as we are venturing into murky moral territory. R1 will serve as an acceptance, R2 for arguments, R3 for rebuttals. Cheers!...

jakabus
Checkyoursources

I believe in God but not in a conventional way. The soul however is something also debated replacing an omnipotent being with...? This is for you to fill in from your perspective. The catalyst of life, an energy relating to conscience and emotion. What does emotion have to do with our soul? It's been well noted that man is made up of three (3) properties the physical, intellectual and spiritual. Using the soul as the subject for the debate (to cease disrespect amongst other beliefes) judgement w...

If A Tree Fell In A Forrest With No One Around To Hear It, It Would Still Make A Sound

fullofhopkins
JackofSpade

The classic question. I guess the most practical way to do these is for the first round to be acceptance and then I can make my case. I don't want this to be an argument about definitions of words, but here is what I mean by sound - and I must ask con to accept it: vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person's or animal's ear. If you have questions just leave a comment and I'll be happy to answer it....
