Newly revealed natural scientific laws govern the morality of abortion

KeytarHero

Thank you for accepting this important debate. The law debated here could alter the way people think about abortion. This debate will test a newly revealed natural scientific law that partially governs the impact that abortion has on society. If this law is valid, then the generally accepted conclusions of the pro life movement will need revision or become invalid. Natural laws are self evident once brought to light and backed up with theory. Natural laws are not invented, they are reveale...

Abortion

Bchatman
Alduin

Abortion is wrong. For the people who say that abortion is okay are saying that it is okay to murder people so that must mean that it is okay for me to kill a person and not get in trouble with the law. What makes murdering an unborn child okay, but murdering someone else wrong?...

Should abortion be legal or illegal?

Arrogant
TBR

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...
