Following on from a post I made some time ago about debating and so chat’s I’ve had reciently with alobear I find myself wondering what subjects are still contentious these days. I’m going to stick down a half-hearted list and would very much like people to add to it:

Health:
Parental informing and consent
Euthanasia
Abortion

Equal Rights:
Immigration
Affirmative Action

Crime:
Death penality
Drugs (legality of)
Punishments (length/type of sentencing)

As you can see this is a very short list. Most of the things I keep thinking of most people agree about (workers rights) or have no rational basis for arguement (religion). I’ve probably missed out dozens – please help me fill them in.
