all children should have mobile phones
Debate Rounds (3)
I'm going to view this as a presidential debate type event.
"All children should have mobile phones" and "this outweighs everything else" is a very ignorant statement.
"All children should have adequate food" certainly outweighs them having a mobil phone.
For the 16 million children living in poverty within the United States, how should these phones be financed?
1.) Pro stated "All" then changed his wording to "all that can afford one"
2.) Pro claims children ages 3-12 can produce enough money to afford a phone and monthly bill but does not state how.
3.) Pro insinuates that the government should purchase 16+ million cell phones for children. his previous "outweighs all" statement suggest that a mobile phone is more important than food, clothing, education, health care, and shelter.
Questions for pro (please answer 1 by 1)
1.) Is having a cell phone more important than having adequate food?
2.) How are children ages 6-10 going to fund having a cell phone on their own?
3.) If a child is abducted or being assaulted, what is stoping the aggressor from taking the phone from the child or physically prohibiting them from using it?
A lack of answers to these questions should discredit Pro's stance in the eyes of the voter.
Pro, I'm willing to answer any questions you may have.
