This debate will focus on the (U.S.) LEGAL requirements for personhood. I am taking the PRO side of the debate as I will argue that our laws should and to some extent already do recognize the fact that human 'personhood' begins at conception.

This debate is significant in that our Constitution under the 'equal protections' clause of the 14th Amendment is by wa...
(Using my same standpoints as all are valid and relevant.) Separation of Church and State works both ways, therefore on legal grounds? This issue should be locked away indefinitely.

That is, even if the premises (#1 and #2) were to be true, the conclusion (#3) does not logically follow from them. Beginning of Existence Herein lies the crux of the argume...
i will get the fewest votes in this debate. when the poll shows that i got the fewest votes.... my affirmation will be affirmed. that means that i really won this debate even if i got the fewest votes. when most people are voting against me, that could only mean that the voter participating in voting against me, is contradicting himself. that is, i will have won the debate so how can you be voting agaisnt me? the only way to ensure that you are in the right as a voter, is to vote "pro...
