I'm currently preparing my A2 french oral, but I am hesitating on a few different issues :
-legislation about use of embryonic stem cell
-organ donation (opt-out legislation)
-legislation on wearing helmet on bikes
-legislation on smoking in public area
Do you have any advice on which one to choose ?

Sorry you've not had any responses about this.
Why not try posting in a specific subject forum- you might have more luck there.

Smoking in public is probably the most open ended with the most possibility for an anecdotal approach; also the attitudes towards smoking vary greatly between France and the UK (which might be interesting to go into).
The corrida de torros? Perhaps a bit of an outlier here.
The embryonic stem still requires a bit of technical knowledge and language to do it well (which if you have, great) however I would also say that it is potentially the most divisive ethically. Usually, if it's a for general audience and your being assessed it's best to avoid contentious issues. They same could be said for organ donation to a lesser extend. This doesn't prevent them both from being interesting topics.
Bike helmets seems good but perhaps even a little too dry (who would really make a case against it?), however, if you have a strong personal take on it then maybe go for it.
I would say you would be best choosing between helmets and smoking. In the end it should depend on what angle you feel most comfortable taking. Try and image what you might say for each, make some notes, and then a decision will emerge from that. Good luck wit the exam!
