Euthanasia

Danielle
lannan13

Euthanasia refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering. While it is an issue of law for certain, I labeled this debate into the Philosophical category. Euthanasia, sometimes called "mercy killing" or referred to as assisted suicide has both ethical and legal ramifications. I will be arguing on behalf of the law embracing euthanasia as a viable legal option for...

point of fetal pain should be used instead of viability as abortion regulation standard

dairygirl4u2c
Hawkeye117

instead of being able to regulate when abortion can occur based on viability, it should be based on when the fetus starts feeling pain. the fact we'd have to use pain killers to kill the fetus shows the inhumanity of what is being done. viability is not a magic spot of when a fetus feels pain, or is suddenly a human, take it back a few moments and it's still a person. why not just take it back to the humane point of fetus pain?...

We must die guilty and pay for breaking God's law or be forgiven and justified so we don't have to pay. Are you justified, or do you think you are good and do not need to be justified? What is your excuse for living? If you are not living forever, your excuse for living is not very good, is it?You can expect some Hell ffire and brimst...

God's existence - it is reasonable to conclude a supernatural cause of existence

dairygirl4u2c
Rational_Thought

God's existence - it is reasonable to conclude a supernatural cause of existence bottom line: if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. if you see a magician who waves his wand and makes cats turn into dogs, you could argue a natural explanation is possible, and perhaps even argue that it is preferable, given most times magic tricks have explanations. but, the most direct observation is that violations of natural laws have occurred, and / or things outside of nature. at...
