Abortion is always Morally Permissible


PrefaceI have recently been having some philosophical and logical consistency issues with my Pro-Choice stance. I would therefore like to defend a Pro-Life position to help me understand that persepective, and to determine which point of view I find more compelling.To accept this debate, you must have completed 4 debates already. To vote you must have a minimum of 3,000 ELO. Because this is such a contentious issue, I would also like to remind voters...

Watch silent scream. Abortion is morally wrong.


Watch the 28 minute documentary "silent scream" from 1984. The film is about abortion. It is hosted by Bernard Nathanson, founder of NARAL and a former abortion doctor. He became pro life. The film has graphic parts but it is overall very meaningful. It's only half an hour. Wether you believe abortion should be legal or illegal it is morally wrong....

Abortion is morally acceptable


I know there's been about a million of these debates but I haven't often debated the issue and would like some practice :) First round is for acceptance and for anything you would like to say before the debate. To clarify on what I am arguing, I am arguing that, if the mother's life is not in danger, abortion is morally wrong....

I know that you're scared and don't want to listen, but let me tell you a story before you make your decision. There was once a young girl in the same place as you, she wasn't sure if this she'd be able to go through. She was trapped by her own choices with no easy way out, she chose the hardest choice but the best without a doubt. She was really just a girl but was wise and chose the option, to give her baby a better life and give her up for adoption. She knew what truly...

Abortion. Right Or Wrong?


I am personally against abortion; however I am pro-choice. I think it's wrong to take away someone else's right's just so someone else won't be offended. It's not my business if someone wants to kill their unborn child or not. I will never have an abortion and even if it was considered I would always choose adoption. I would love to debate this with someone who is completely against it and thinks that no one should get one. *This doesn't include the serious health reasons*...

Should abortion be legal?


This question has become one of the most discussed in this period. Many people are against abortion because of their religion. But we have to think how a young girl could feel if she discovers that she is pregnant. Science found a way to "kill" the baby before it is a real baby with a conscience. So if a girl discovers that she is pregnant but she CAN'T keep the baby because of their age or also because she hasn't got enough money. So she could be able to use this opportunity that Science gave h...

That in Most Cases, Abortion is Wrong.


I challenge sjrrj to this debate due to a heated exchange in the message section. The topic is that in most cases, abortion is wrong. The BoP is shared in this debate. I urge my opponent to use links and sources to back up evidence, as it should make for a better debate.

Abortion should be legal


I've wanted to debate this topic for a while now, and my opponent has shown some interest in it on the forums, so I thought this would be a good debate. Since the resolution is very straightforward I don't think an acceptance round is needed. Con may use their text space however they want to. Opening arguments: 1) Uncertainty about the beginning of life The scientific answer to the question of whether life begins at conception, at birth, or at some other point during a pregnancy is not...

Abortion is generally immoral


Resolved: Abortion is generally immoral.Four rounds. Shared BoP. No new arguments in R4. R1 for acceptance.I shall argue that abortion is immoral in most cases. This means excluding extraordinary cases such as rape, incest, to save the life of the mother, etc. So I shall be arguing that in cases where the individual gave consent and partook in sex, resulting in a pregnancy, abortion is immoral. My opponent shall a...
