Pro

I believe that every person, Regardless of their nationality, Gender, Skin color, Or anything else, Is equal in their status as people, And should be given the same opportunities as anyone else.

Equality is defined as "the state or quality of being equal; correspondence in quantity, Degree, Value, Rank, Or ability" [1].

Anyone is welcome to dispute this.

An adult illegal alien - a stateless refugee person - has no legal rights or protections.

Leave god out of this debate. A child does not have the rights that an adult has therefore a child is not equal to an adult.

Everyone has equal value, But God calls people to different purposes.

Depending on the environment all people have differences and specialties. White people dominate IQ tests whereas Black people dominate sports. Consider a classic blue print. The front view its completely different from the Top view. The Top view its completely different from the Side view. The Side View its completely different from the Front view.

We are not all equal. Every person is different. The president is not equal to a homeless person.

I think everyone is of equal importance, But not everyone is equal in abilities.

Is this an argument for socialism (based on "given the same oppos. )?

Or just an argument for the equality of humans as far as the worth of their life?

And when you say worth, In what sense do you mean that? Extrinsic worth like from a human assignment of value? Or intrinsic worth, And then why do you say we have intrinsic worth?
