Ten Most Controversial Debate Topics

I am a Debate Student, and I feel that these topics are controversial.

The Top Ten

1 Would Abortion/Euthanasia Count As Murder

Yes because surely you could put the child up for adoption if you weren't ready for that responsibility?

Abortion is murder, and euthanasia should only be used with the consent of the patient. - LordDovahkiin


First of a a baby is still a person I don't care who they are they do feel feelings why don't you go ahead and and die because you don't have feelings hey ( that was a example don't kill yourself) a baby is a person and a life is being taken away from that child so yeah...
But if you where raped I would see in abortion.

2 Should Animal Testing Be Banned

No. Because we use new medicines on animals, just to see if it's safe for humans. If we didn't do this, people would die. - LordDovahkiin

For cosmetics? Duh. For science? Remember they are a life, and respect them like so - keycha1n


3 Should Same Sex Marriage Be Legalised

Why should any religion, person, or organization attempt to dictate or belittle the way people choose to live their lives? It's about doing whatever makes you happy. - maarilynmaanson

A religion that preaches love, shouldn't hate people for loving. - keycha1n

It's not that Christianity is against the homosexuals themselves, it's that it is against the lifestyle they have chosen. - RiverClanRocks

No. It's unnatural, and it's against God. In the Bible's glossary, marriage is described as "The unity of one MAN and one WOMAN." - LordDovahkiin

One cannot use Russell's teapot to prove something exists. Also, the doctrines forbidding same-sex marriage are in the same chapter forbidding eating shellfish, tattoos, and wearing clothes woven from multiple fabrics, so your arguments are absolutely clogged with logical fallacies. - JoelMiles925

4 Should Marijuana Be Legalised

I'm not a stoner, but I don't see how Nicotine is legal and this isn't. - IronSabbathPriest

No. - LordDovahkiin

5 Housewives Should Be Paid for Their Work
6 Should Same Sex Couples Be Allowed to Adopt

No. - LordDovahkiin

Absolutely, usually, these couples are strong independent people who have found that the happiness and care for the people they love are more important to them than anything. Their sexual preference in no way affects their ability to love and parent the right way. - Pergipsy

7 Should the Death Penalty Be Abolished

No, it shouldn't. If it were up to me, murderers would be put to death, or put in jail for life. Same for rapists and other terrible people like that. - LordDovahkiin

No, it shouldn

Yeah, cause all we need is jails full of serial killers and murderers. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

8 Child Performers Should Be Banned
9 Should Prostitution Be Made Illegal

Prostitution should not be made illegal. Rarely do women have complete power over their bodies and someone else's, especially when it comes to sex. Even if it is male prostitution this is a well paying and an economically beneficial job that if controlled and done in the right way, benefits everyone involved. I don't want to be a prostitute, but props to anyone who chooses to do so. We should not be putting people in jail for doing something to benefit themselves, especially if they chose to do it. It isn't our choice, it's theirs. - Pergipsy

Legalise it. If someone needs money and they are struggling to get a job... they decide to turn to this. Who are you to judge them? There is a stereotype of it being to feed a drug habit and pimps. But they are some who use this as a way of living until they get a job.

Should be made illegal

10 Religion vs. Science

I've been in this argument so many times, and my response is: take whichever side you please. - PositronWildhawk

Oh no. Good one whoever added this one. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

The Contenders

11 Should Beauty Contests Be Banned


12 Should Guns Be Banned from the Public

Hell no. Guns actually protect more people than they kill. Wait, guns don't kill people. It's the person operating the gun that kills people. - LordDovahkiin

13 Should Abortion/Euthanasia Be Legal

No on abortion, yes on euthanasia, if with the patient's consent. - LordDovahkiin

14 Should In-N-Out Be Moved to Other Areas in the US



15 Nature vs. Nurture for Serial Killers and Murders
16 Goku vs Superman

Goku. - LordDovahkiin

Goku Wins

17 Should Human Testing Be Made Legal

If it is voluntary and there is no chance of death, then yes it should. Even if there was a chance of death, it is the choice of the volunteers. Also, many forms of testing that exist today provide money as a benefit so I mean if somebody wants to help the advancement of science of their own will and get something in return, it shouldn't be against the law. - Pergipsy

Uh yeah no

18 Should dogs be free to a good home?

Yes, they should. To properly care for and feed dogs, it costs hundreds of dollars every year and we should not have to pay to give love to a well deserving animal. - Pergipsy

Yes, only makes sense.

19 Is suicide weak?

Your weak-minded, if you kill yourself for just a little hardship. - LordDovahkiin

20 Should Shakespeare Continue to Be Taught in Schools?

Well, duh. - LordDovahkiin
