Wearing a helmet when cycling should be a law.


Cycling is a very common sport amongst all ages. Bicycle helmets reduce head injury risk by 85% which is why some people prefer to wear a helmet when riding. However the majority of the population do not wear a helmet for personal reasons. Only 14% of British children wear a helmet whilst riding a bike. But no more that 17% of fatal cycling accidents were wearing a helmet proves that wearing helmets have saved lives....

Death Panels


The debate should be impossible to accept, and depending on the interest, it may or may not be debated. Show interest in comments, if proper interest is shown, details of the debate will be negotiated and hashed out. The title of the debate will remain the same, even if the resolution doesn't match it, but the resolution must be in the spirit of what I want to debate. When Obamacare first came out, republicans were scoffed at for suggesting that death panels would come next. Now the ideals of...

Abortion should remain a legal standing law.


Women should be able to determine their own future. It is ultimately the woman"s decision whether or not she should bring a child into the world.

Reproductive choice empowers women, allowing them to take control over their body. 2). Women who receive abortion are less likely to suffer mental health problems than w...

I understand that there is a sense of choice for the smokers but the smokers are at the same time changing lives for non smokers around them. If...

Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with years of nursing and medical experience who go back to school to become certified as Nurse Practitioners.

all drug legalization


Drugs are bad and everybody knows that. But does this mean that they shouldn't get legalized? Because even though it's dangerous should everyone decide for themselfes if they want to do drugs and hurt themselfes. People would die of course but it would have been their own choice and crime rates would go down because there would be almost no profit in being a drug dealer. It should be up to everyone of us to decide what we want to do not some people in ancy clothes in a fancy building....
