Argument Against Capital Punishment - Protected under the Constitution, “No person shall be deprived of his or her LIFE, liberty, and property under Due Process of law.” These fundamental rights, primarily LIFE, apply to capital punishment- the death penalty. For years, the Court has deliberated decisions in regards to the death penalty and countless times they have overthrown previous decisions. This in no way means laws, under the Constitution, have changed; however, the Court and our interpretation(s) of the law have changed. In Furman V....   [tags: Anti Death Penalty Essays]

Argument For Limited Euthanasia - Euthanasia should only be used when it benefits the one who dies. It is a widely held belief that an act of euthanasia aims at benefiting the one who dies. It is morally wrong to engage in voluntary acts of euthanasia; it is morally wrong to engage in acts of non-voluntary euthanasia, and; it is never morally right to engage in acts of involuntary euthanasia. In situations where the patient is suffering when do you put the morally wrongs aside and help or get help in freeing yourself or a loved one from pain....   [tags: Pro Assisted Suicide, Right to Die]

Proof For the Existence of God - Proof For the Existence of God From the diversity of men and creatures on this earth, there has always been one unifying link. At the root of humanity’s existence, lies the root of all things natural and infinite, a hint of something supreme and purposeful, something incomprehensible; a glimpse of what is real and what is possible. Inspired by wonder one can easily be surprised by the doubts presented as to the existence and identity of this driving force. The Law of Causality properly states, “Anything which begins to exist must have been brought into existence by something distinct from itself.” Therefore, only something outside of the world could have created the world....   [tags: cosmological argument, casuality]

An Arguement for the Existance of God - ... Modern science has proven that our world is not just a bunch of unrelated laws, but rather an intertwined whole. In other words, the parts can’t be understood if they are separated from the whole. The following argument can be made from analyzing the above description. In a system such as our world no part can be self-sufficient or self-explanatory because every part relies on the other parts. A part cannot act unless there are others to interact reciprocally with it. Any part could be self-sufficient if it was the cause of the rest of the system, but that is not possible because no part can act without the others....   [tags: nature, rational, systems] 948 words

Abortion Should NOT Be Legal - Ever since 1973, when the court case Roe v. Wade came about, there has been a debate on abortion. The first side to this case, the liberal side, believes that women have the right to control their own bodies. Then, the conservative side believes that every life should be protected and human life begins at the moment of conception.

1984 Argument - George Orwell’s novel, 1984, displays a compelling scenario in which people are no longer in control of their own lives. They are controlled by a higher power, the government. In regards to the control of our government today, many people say that 1984 is more than just an interesting piece of fiction. In fact, some people believe that it is a prophetic piece of reality. In opposition to this, others believe that it is a novel better viewed as a piece of satirical gold that holds very little or no resemblance to our world today....   [tags: George Orwell, control, government, telescreens]

This is the definition of abortion of which I will be reviewing its ethical status. After Roe vs Wade, the supreme court simultaneously decided that women have the right of privacy under the 14th amendment; making it acceptable to abort a pregnancy within the first trimester (Vaughn 119).

Argument Against Abortion - Abortion seems to be just another term tossed around like any other. The word abortion has become very common around the world, whether illegal or legal.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on whether or not abortion is right or wrong.

It is the action of ending a life that suffers from a terminal illness or an incurable disease, usually by a lethal injection. Except for in the Netherlands and Belgium, euthanasia is illegal. Euthanasia has now been legalized in Oregon. Washington and Montana has only legalized assisted suicide, which is different from euthanasia.

But is it not inhumane to see another person’s unbearable suffering and not release them when they long to be released.

Qualia and Epiphenomenalism - The philosophical theory of dualism holds that mind and body are two separate entities. While dualism presupposes that the two ‘substances’ may interact, it contrasts physicalism by refusing to denote correlation between body and mind as proof of identity. Comparing the two theories, dualism’s invulnerable proof of the existence of qualia manages to evade arguments from physicalism. While a common argument against qualia—non-physical properties defined in Jackson’s Knowledge Argument—targets the unsound nature of epiphenomenalism, this claim is not fatal to the theory of dualism as it contains claims of causation and fails to stand resolute to the conceivability of philosophical zombies....   [tags: Jackson's Knowledge Argument] 1174 words

Others are Pro Life, and say that abortion is unethical and is considered as a form of homicide. All depending on one’s human dignity, the argument differs.

Legalize Euthanasia Now - Assisted Suicide – Legalisation or Criminalisation. Discuss. In the past years, assisted suicide has been an issue of large controversies throughout many countries. However, something that I believe is one of the main problems, is that many people are confused between two different ideas – assisted suicide and euthanasia. Assisted suicide is basically when a patient who suffers an incurable disease, which causes a lot of pain, is given the necessary drugs to commit suicide. However, the patient must make the final act of ingesting the drugs, by his own means and can't be helped by anyone else....   [tags: Argument, Persuasive, Mercy Killing] 1224 words

Economical Argument for the Legalization of Marijuana - There is no feasible way to completely abolish drug use in the United States. As with Prohibition of Alcohol in the earlier part of this century, the fight against drugs has backfired. The United States is spending billions of dollars a year to fight a war, which over the last 60 years, has shown that it cannot be won. So let’s use a little reverse psychology on the subject. What would happen if marijuana or other illegal drugs were legalized. First, the billions of dollars that the government is spending trying to abolish illegal drugs would be put to better use and the government would be able to tax the “new drugs” just as they do alcohol and tobacco....   [tags: essays research papers] 510 words

The debate questions the right of Americans to bear arms, this including, handguns, shotguns, and rifles. Some say a simple restriction of these arms is in order while some think they should be banned altogether (Dolan 1). Both sides hold strong opinions often causing conflict in the matter and confusion among the citizens of the United States.

If guns were outlawed, the criminals would not stop carrying guns, but the good, law-abiding citizens would. It would do nothing about the illegally obtained handguns in the possession of criminals.
