Should abortion be abolished or permitted by law?

TatianaGu

The abortion debate asks whether it can be right to stop a pregnancy before childbirth. It is a very painful topic for women and men who find themselves facing the moral dilemma of whether or not to terminate a pregnancy. It's one of the most polarising moral issues - most people are on one side or the other, very few are undecided. I consider myself a...

Organized Religion is Harmful and Corrupt

npt2
Bribri10114

Organized Religion is Harmful and Corrupt. I am not against spirituality. Hope and Faith are driving factors in some people's life. They are able to overcome obstacles in the belief that they are ultimately pursuing "good". However, when it becomes more about meeting and the offering plate being passed around, problems start. What is good for one- is it good for any other or all? Organized Religion is Harmful. The more we learn about our natural world, the more we know that we are fund...

Is Climate Change Real?

SpicyChicken
TheMarketLibertarian

Climate change is real. There is no other viable explanation that proves that climate change is faulty or a fake claim made by China. About 98% of scientists agree that climate change is real and relevant. Now, there is more CO2 in the air then ever, and over the years, that amount has increased and at the same time, temperatures have gone up. You can also see the impact, as glaciers are melting all over the world and all people can clearly see that. Natural phenomena are not viable, because if...

And how they are have sex with people and are spreading this disease to every person they have sex with. And most of time the person with AIDS or HIV don't even know they have it then end up spreading it. But just because they have it and they spread it doesn't mean you should end your life early, even though you are going to die anyway. Give people they chance to live the life t...

Corporal punishment in schools and institutions is a disgrace to society. First of all, it is against international law to use excessive force on children. Corporal punishment is a form of child abuse. The only words in statue that separate corporal punishment and child abuse are the terms "excessive" and "extreme". This makes the border between the two an opinion and puts children at risk . Corporal punishment, also put states and the country at risk with liability . States have been sued for o...

New medicines require testing because researchers must measure both the beneficial and the harmful effects of a compound on a whole organism. A medicine is initially tested in vitro using tissues and isolated organs, but legally and ethically it must also be tested in a suitable animal model before clinical trials in humans can take place. The animal tests provide data on efficacy and safety. They not only identify potential safety concerns, but also determine the doses which will be given to...

afroninja61104

Back in the earliest century of America, there were 5 slave states and 6 free states, then a balance was starting to be created. People of the North, were against slavery, while people of the South were for slavery. In 1850, California became the 31st state, and due to popular sovereignty, it became a free state that would then throw off the balance of slave/free states. Two years later, Life Among the Lowly (also known as Uncle Tom's Cabin) was published, a book about a slave. For the first tim...
