Should abortion be legalized?

Debate_King1475
Eric_w

The desire for abortion is subjective and as we know, subjective feelings are kept out of arguments. So, I say that objectively, the direct intent to determine the fetus is considered murder. Now as to whether the murder of the unborn is different than the murder of alive, there is a difference because the baby is 100% dependent on the mother for survival. If something is clinging onto you for dear life, then you have the right of liberty to free yourself from the pregnancy, regardless of whethe...

Non-late term abortion should remain legal

Abortion should remain legal as it is in many states - up to 23 weeks into pregnancy. The reality is that many women (or couples) experience unwanted pregnancies that they cannot responsibly handle. This is because humans are flawed and not because they are bad people. There are many examples of zygotes that are created in circumstances of which it would be reasonable to abort: rape, incest, drug addiction, prostitution, homelessness and countless other socioeconomic difficulties.

Just join the debate and rebut against my points. "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood." - Article 1 of the Universal Human Rights. Notice the word BORN. This is not yet a human, it does not yet have human rights. It is not YOUR choice to decide whether the mother has to keep her child, It is not YOUR choice to make. What if the woman was raped? Would you want...

Think people! If every pregnant women were to have an abortion right now, the human race would not survive. Every three seconds another women is having in abortion, which should be illegal! Is it okay to murder an aver...

Abortion is murder.

Pfalcon1318

Abortion has undoubtedly become a serious issue in today's world. People are debating the legality and ethicality of abortion, and they have developed different opinions on the subject. I believe that abortion is murder, and that it is unethical in many senses. The first round will be used solely for the opening arguments. The second and third rounds will be used for the main arguments, and for the rebuttal of the arguments of the opponent. The fourth round will be used for the closing arguments...
