1  General Politics / Political Debate / Re:The Contraceptive Pill on: May 26, 2004, 05:26:34 am
I normally would not be against contraceptives, but I have voted against the pill. Reason being, the pill can kill the fetus. What the pill does is prevent the sperm from reaching the eggs by a certain mucus. But occasionally, sperm can get through the mucus, and the zygote can be fertalized. If this is the case, the zygote either is killed (it turns into a morning-after pill), or it gets a serious disorder. So I therefore vote against it.

No it doesn't, i don't know where you got your biology lessons.  It works by altering the amounts of hormones in the blood, which can either stop the egg being released, or stop a fertilised egg from attaching itself to the uterus lining

Strongly agree, having guns in the hands of law abiding citizens saves lives.

But the guns don't just go into law abiding hands do they, they get into criminals hands who use them to murder people, and unstable people's hands who take them into school and use them to shoot their classmates and teachers


But if you make guns illegal and law abiding people turn theirs' in who still has them? The bad guys aren't going to turn their guns in! I think that makes everyone a bit less safe especially in their homes.

But then you have a very legitimate reason for putting all these 'bad guys' in prison and away from society

Allowing anyone right to bare arms is just asking for trouble, just look at colombine and dunblain.
Gun crime is always going to be a problem while guns are easily accesible

Criminals can get guns whether their are laws against them or not. I guess their are no gun crimes in Britian, huh?

Yes there are gun crimes, but there are a hell of a lot less, and the gun crimes tend to be gangs killing each other, not masscre's of children who's only crime was going to school that day

Uniforms are a good idea, although admittedly it would be better if they could be made a little more comfortable.  It reduces classroom distractions as you don't spend the whole time judging people on what they wear.

I spend the whole time at school judging the people on what they wear?

 It saves time, you don't have to worry about what clothes to wear in the morning.

Then pick your clothes out the night before!  Grin

 It reduces oppotunity for bullying, you can't be bullied about what you wear.  And it breaks down social boundries, the rich and the poor aren't seperated by how they look.

Which is why we should educate kids about morals in school... just in case they didn't pick something up at home Wink

School is a place for learning, not for looking better than your friends

Which is why we should learn that you shouldn't judge people by their outward appearances.

Are you telling me that you've never judged someone by what they look like?  And are you telling me that people will always listen to what you teach them, that every kid does what their parents and teachers tell them?
