### That stem cell research should be legal

Topic is self-explanatory, so I'll throw my first two points out and let Con have at it. The first really big thing about stem cell research is the obvious; that is, we can take stem cells and use them to cure many diseases/medical conditions, including but not limited to the following:spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, and Alzheimer's Disease. The second big thing is that new transplants can be grown from stem cells, so organ donors are no longer nee...

### That Stem Cell Research should be legal.

The title is self-explanatory, I'm con, so whoever takes this is going to support stem cell research (SCR), I'll throw my first two points out there and let Pro have at it. Point 1:In order to harvest embryonic stem cells, you have to destroy an embryo, which is a human life, which makes it murder. Murder is spelled out as illegal in America, yet if you are murdering for science, apparently that is okay. Where is the logic there? Point 2:Supposedly, SCR can cure dozens of diseases and medi...

### Military Conscription is Unjust.

I. INTRODUCTION Greetings, DDO. I noticed that debate challenges have been pretty scarce lately, so I decided to post one of my own. This will be a three-round debate, during which I will spend the first round making any necessary clarifications, and using Rounds 2 and 3 to make and conclude my arguments. I acknowledge that as Pro (and more importantly, as the instigator) I have the burden of proof. Thus I ask that my future opponent utilize R1 to either accept or refute my clarifications; I...

### x-x/=0

Ok, I'm going to set up a series of mathematical equations to prove that x-x does not equal 0 all the time. Some quick terminology: /= does not equal. 8 infinity. x variable. - minus. + plus. = equal to. x-x=0 a number minus itself equals zero x=8 x equals infinity 8-8=0 because a number minus itself is zero, 8-8 is 0 as well 8+5=8 because infinity cant get any bigger 8+3=8 because infinity cant get any bigger 8+5-8+3=8-8 because of the last two lines 8+5-8+3=8-8+5-3 either the commutativ...

The first round goes to the contender....

### Abolish Social Security

Unpromising, chaotic, and fraud. Social security fits this description exactly; therefore social security must be abolished. I take an affirmative stance to abolish Social security for the following contentions; Contention 1; Social security has no prospect for America, Contention 2; America now and in the future will not be able to sustain the needs of the Social security system, and Contention 3; Individual workers should be able to invest their own retirement money. Under Soci...

### abortion

First off, no semantics. It takes away from the debate, and if you have to go with semantics, you shouldn't be debating. So my argument is as follows. Abortion should not be allowed, because it is basically murder, even if it is still not "alive" yet, it would be alive in a few months, which basically makes it murder before it's even alive. Good luck to my opponent....
