This, is the first round I am happy to welcome the opponent I think people should adopt because there are children out there who need a loving family and sometimes don't get that something's there family dies or they can't take care of a child and sometimes they just plain don't want a child even if that happens I think adoption is a wonderful thing and that everyone should keep or adopt a child

I accept. In this debate I will be arguing that not everyone should adopt a child. Burden of proof is in pro. Please state your case.

People should adopt because it is a great cause! It's giving a lonely child the gift of a family and possibly even siblings! If you can't afford it don't do it!
simpleguy

Con

My opponent has already defeated his own resolution. His resolution was that "everyone should keep or adopt a child." In round 2, he stated that "If you can't afford it don't do it!" He has thus proven that not everyone should adopt a child (people without the required money).

I thank my opponent for starting this interesting topic and also for his concession.

Ugh lol everyone should adopt a kid if they have the money it is a wonderful thing to adopt for these reasons

*you are giving a kid a home
*you are helping a most likely sad kid
*Kids want a family ad some never get it, give it to someone

If you don't have the money don't have a kid or adopt one

Ugh and lol are not real words and I do not know what they mean. As I said in the previous round, Pro has already disproved her own resolution "everyone should adopt a child" by saying "if you can't afford it don't do it". She even says it again in round 3. Before I move on I must emphasise that I have already won and have nothing else to prove.

Having said that, I will also provide some other situations where one should not adopt a child.

- When people have alcohol abuse problems

- People who have full time jobs and are not home a lot of the time

- Paedophiles

Each of these cases stand on their own to prove that not 'everyone' should adopt children
