On balance, abortion is immoral

Philocat
triangle.128k

I am challenging triangle.128k to a debate regarding the morality of abortion. He seems quite convinced that abortion is morally justifiied, so I anticipate a lively intellectual discourse with him.Con will argue that abortion is morally justified, I will argue that it is not. The burden of proof is shared.DefinitionsAbortion: 'a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus'

Abortion should be made illegal.

We all know what abortion is; or at least we think we do. We listen to the stories on the news, we read opinion articles in the paper arguing this or that, but we never really pay attention or try to understand. This needs to change. Abortion is harming families and people all over the world because the most vulnerable people on Earth are literally being ripped apart and desperate mothers are tricked into an unsafe procedure that will have lasting effects on her and her family because they feel...

Legality of Abortion.

I would argue that abortion unless done due to rape, fetus deformation or because of a high risk to the women's health should be criminalised. The burden of proof would be shared....

Should abortion be legal or illegal?

Could be your choice but is it your baby's? A mother kills her unborn child because it is unwanted, but she's not charged for murder. Is it right? There is about 46 million abortions per year worldwide, and approximately 115,000 per day, but why? Is it because rape or incest, health problems with either the mother or the child, or just because the baby's unwanted or inconvenient at the time? (The Alan Guttmacher Institute.) Abortion should be banned because too many babies are being killed f...

Hello and I would like to start by saying that I am looking for a philosophical/moral debate and not a religious one. My opinion on abortion is that it is wrong to kill a sentient life form and therefor if the baby can think I don't think a abortion should be allowed but up until then it is simply a part of the human body and therefor ok to abort...

Abortion

Many different procedures exist to carry out the process of abortion. According to Birth Mothers (an organization working to help women with unwanted pregnancies), one of the most commonly used types of abortion is a saline abortion. In a saline abortion, amniotic fluid is removed from the woman and replaced by a strong saline (salt) solution. As the fetus"s lungs absorb the salt solution, it begins to suffocate. It may struggle and may even have convulsions. The saline also burns off the fetus...

Abortion

Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, the right to life is an inalienable right given to every innocent human being, therefore, abortion, as the direct result of the killing of an innocent human child, violates the inalienable right to life. Thus, abortion is wrong. I would like to argue against abortion. There is no layout other than that my opponent should first provide a retort to the paragraph stated above in round one. This is just a free discussion in a relaxed manner. Als...
