CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy.
If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
Arguments with the highest score are displayed first.
Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument.
To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
To vote for an argument, use these icons:
You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument.
Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change.
Yes, you can change your vote.
Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account.
All scores are updated in real-time.

When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument.
If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
Well, it could have been worse.. It was in Mexico.. They have a totally different viewpoint about incarceration... Their job was to keep us in jail - NOT make us feel bad for being there.. So, they STAYED outside making sure we didn't leave. They didn't care what we did inside..
Visitors could spend the night. If they came from further than 50 miles, they moved right in, kids and all. Messengers would come to the door of the jail, and for a small tip, they'd do our shopping, banking, or whatever we needed. Suffice to say, we smoked the best dope, ate the best food, and screwed the best women. I wrote a book about it called "The Carcel"..
Send me your email in a PM and I'll send you a copy..
Yes, it's as funny as you think it is.. Here's an excerpt. As I said, visitors can spend the night.. But, MOST bunks were only separated by a thin sheet.. Mexicans, being proper people, NEVER made a sound when they fucked..
Now, my Mexican friend, Ramon, hooked up with a hippie chick from San Francisco who didn't care about Mexican niceties. .. The night she stayed with Ramon was punctuated by the chick screaming, and then Ramon going shhh, shhh.. It was like OHHH AHHH, shhh, shhh. OHH AHH, shhh shhh..
Oh I agree with that. But that's not your definition of murder. In a previous debate, you have argued that post-birth abortion would not be murder if we defined it as 'neccesary', since murder is the 'unnecessary' killing of a human being. So no strawman here.
Abortion is abortion, murder is murder. Two different things, don't twist my words. Post birth abortion is only abortion shorty after birth. Personally, I believe it is only ethical to terminate a fetus 24 hours to one week after a birth, other may consider the 6 month point to be the bench mark.
So you've redefined abortion and redefined murder, in order to reach the conclusion that killing a newborn child is not murder...And I'm the one twisting your words? You have twisted your own moral into a knot. And just for the record, all of this BS is completely unconstitutional. Not that you would care.
By definition: A fetus or fetus is the unborn offspring of an animal. Once it is born, it is no longer a fetus. An infant is the more formal or specialized synonym for "baby", the very young offspring of a human. A person is defined as a living human. Therefore a baby is a human/person. Murder is the unlawful killing of another human without justification or valid excuse. It is not possible for a baby to be a threat to the mother's life. Therefore, there's no justification or valid excuse to kill a baby. ;)
I once heard a preacher on campus talking about being born again. She was telling the women there that they should remain virgins until they were married. One of them asked the preacher if she was a virgin. She responded with, "I'm a born again virgin." To which one of the guys responded with, "Is that as good as the real thing?" The preacher had no response. So..., I'm guessing that being born again isn't as good as the first time around ;)
People who are not born with a disability find it hard to imagine a joyous life with a disability. People born with a disability don't know any better and are content with their life. Don't project your feelings onto other people ;)
