Please join The Enosinian Society for our first debate of the 2009 Spring semester tonight at 8:00 pm in the Honors Building, 714 21st St. NW, to debate
Resolved: The government should consider childhood obesity as child abuse
It is generally believed that it is the government's responsibility to protect its most vulnerable citizens, especially children. It is the public's opinion that childhood obesity is a dangerous trend. Since we already demand our government protect children from negligent parents, shouldn't we empower the state to exercise its authority to protect children from obesity's fatal threats? Or does the over-hyped "obesity epidemic" warrant the government's further micromanaging the family? Join us to debate the role of government and whether or not parenting is a job that should be regulated by the government.
Proposition: Julia Ridpath
Opposition: Tim Kellogg
See you there,
Eshawn R. Rawlley
