Abortion cannot be allowed to turn into murder

Red_Fox

===Debate Intro === With the passing of NY State's 2019 abortion bill, It is necessary that pro-choice advocates disambiguate themselves from pro-abortion advocates. I would like to debate with an individual who endorses late-term abortion in general (or this NY bill in specific). I will then attempt to draw a clear philosophical line between abortion of a fetus and the murder of a child. The New York Times quotes the new NY law with the following: "The new law permits abortion after the 24...

Should pennies be eliminated?

I. Pennies are used to control inflation I don't think the OP understands why we have pennies. It's not to control prices, Per say. It is to control inflation rates. Let me explain. Pennies have low value, Being only. 01$, Which means we can pump however many out we need to control inflation to the number. It is the most precise way to control inflations rates. If you control inflation rates, You control prices. If you control prices, You control how much consumption and investment goes t...

Does the Patriarchy exist to oppress women?

emsiblook
idisagreewithyou

Men and women have equal opportunity to gain power. How I see patriarchy is that men tend to be the ones in roles of power despite this, But not because of oppression. As a woman, I do not feel like men are constantly out to oppress me. The idea that men have kept women in the kitchen out of some malicious plot to be the gender with the power is ridiculous. It suggests that its been a kind of men vs women war for millions of years and men have always come out on top. Women are 50% of the populat...

Should people in privileged countries be vegetarian?

I've changed my mind a lot on this issue over the year. I'm trying to clarify my views on it. But I'm going to assume my moral vegetarian high ground for this debate. I believe that there is no excuse to not being vegetarian. A few decades ago, I would understand. Back then, People knew where their food came from. If you didn't raise your own food, You could get your meat from a local butcher and the milkman would deliver milk from the local dairy. Animals were never given growth hormones an...

Is Abortion Morally Correct?

AimPrime
billsands

I strongly believe having an abortion has the same meaning as killing a human life. It is disgusting, And inconsiderate. Abortion is only acceptable if the female has a mental disorder or some other disease, Other than that, There is no excuse. Females who use the argument "A fetus isn't a human life" is pure stupidity and ignorance. A fetus is the beginning of a HUMAN LIFE, No matter how it looks. It is a living organism. We say plants and tiny bacteria are living organisms, So why do we say a...

Are we becoming too sensitive?

WestDoggies
Augmento

My opening argument is simply that we as a society are becoming snowflakes and are far too sensitive to minor things that don"t even matter like clapping in university, Which a recent English college banned because it triggered some students"" Anxiety. How pathetically sensitive we have become as a society...

Is Political Correctness an example of Big Brother. If so. Who is Big Brother?

Sonofcharl
Thoht

Freedom of speech and freedom of expression have largely been suppressed by what is casually regarded as Political Correctness. How long before technology is able to suppress freedom of thought too? And does it really matter anyway? If Freedoms are suppressed for the overall good of Society and the Planet. Why should we complain? Though for example: Can current politically correct views on gender and sexuality issues be proven to be beneficial to the whole of society? If not why...

Is it good for the society if the life expectancy increases to 100 years?

RandomT
Thoht

Global life expectancy is around 70 years now. If people continue to live longer, We might see a new set of challenges. 1. Employment: The retirement age of people has to be increased, Resulting in reduction of job opportunities for younger generations. 2. Medical costs: As people age, The medical costs go up. The present healthcare system helps you live longer, But not in a healthy way. 3. Social security costs: The pension and other costs will go up. The burden on Govt to meet the demand...

Chocolate is better than sour candy

Smug_Tomato

So, I think that chocolate is so much better than sour candy, It has so much flavor and richness you can't put it down. One time i went to the movie theater and got some sour skittles, While i was eating them, I began to have a raw tongue and it hurt to eat any thing. My mouth was so beat up, I could not even finish my sweets. It was so bad. O ya and when you eat the candy, There is usually a stuff called citric acid in it and you cannot have things like milk because it can give you a stomach ac...
