    Damn you SocialDemocrat! You didn't put "none of the above" as an option. Therefore, I can't vote.

    Feel free to add any other controversial topics you find immoral as well.

    My personal opinions:
    Abortion- Not inherently immoral, unless it is for reasons relating to the gender of the child and possibly late term abortions.
    Death Penalty- State funded murder is immoral.
    Doctor-Assisted Suicide- More immoral to ban it than it is itself.
    Polygamy- Depends on the individual relationship. A polygamous relationship is not inherently immoral, but the average one often subjugates women.
    Pornography- Amoral.
    Homosexuality- Amoral.
    Gambling- The practice of gambling itself is not immoral, but taking advantage of gambling addictions for profit can be immoral. It still should be legal though.
    Suicide- Very sad, but someone is not immoral for attempting it.
    Medical Testing on Animals- Depends on the conditions the animal is in. Unless it's for a life saving medicine, it is usually immoral.
    Cloning Humans- Immoral.
    Divorce- Amoral.
    Sex before Marriage- Amoral.
    Birth Control- Amoral.
    Embryonic Stem Cell Research- Moral if it is for genuine medical research. Amoral otherwise.
    Wearing Clothes with Animal Fur- Wearing it is not immoral, even though it is distasteful, but producing it is.
    Cloning Animals- Eh, amoral I suppose, but I'm not 100% sure.
    Cloning Organs- Moral if used for life saving purposes.
    Gun Ownership- Amoral.
    Drug Use- Amoral, although exposing people to second hand smoke can be immoral, especially if it's children who are exposed to it.
    Prostitution- Provided everyone in the transaction is there willingly, amoral.
    Homophobia- Immoral, but I'm not a fan of banning "hate speech."
    Racism- See homophobia.
    Violent Movies/Video Games- Amoral.
    I suppose what is or is not immoral is in the eye of the beholder. But would I want a government law forbidding any of the above and my answer is no. Cloning is the only one I would give some thought on. Then again I am a huge sci-fi fan so I am not against it but if cloning is well regulated, why not.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I cant check any, they are too broad. Some circumstances would be immoral and others not within most of the choices you give.

    An action is immoral if it limits the freedom of or in some way harms, others.

    If it doesn't, it isn't.

    I don't know why the OP did not allow us to select more then one option? Maybe he does not know how to do that.

    Re: Which of these do you find immoral?

    I can't say I found suicide immoral. Not to mention, who gives a **** what you think of it, or what the punishment for it is, the guy is already dead!

    As for cloning, well... It depends I would have to say.

    Animal testing is a no-no, I'd rather death-row inmates be tossed in to that fray.

    MY PERSONAL TOPICS

    Surprised this one isn't in there, but I would say treason in MOST circumstances is absolutely immoral, in some cases? Nope.

    Also, another thing I find immoral is the extremely over-the-top humane treatment of prisoners.

    And here we are finally, the last thing I think is immoral is the skipping of due process, guilty before innocence. I've seen a lot of this now with Bowe Bergdahl coming into play.

    Sorry, I realized that afterwards. For the purposes of the poll, I would just check the one you find the most immoral.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
