September-October Topic Announced: Organ Procurement

The National Speech and Debate Association has announced the September-October LD debate topic. It is:

Resolved: A just society ought to presume consent for organ procurement from the deceased.

Bear in mind, however, that in many states, the NSDA’s introductory novice topic may be used for novice debates. The novice topic, which remains the same every year, was introduced in 2012. It is:

Resolved: Civil disobedience in a democracy is morally justified.

You should check with tournament hosts in your area to determine whether they will be using the “novice topic” or the regular topic for novice competitions.
