Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....

Abortion

"Back-alley" abortions cause 68,000 maternal deaths each year in the 33 countries where abortion is not legal or available, according to the World Health Organization in Oct. 2006 Abortion is a safe medical procedure. The vast majority of women - 88% - who have an abortion do so in their first trimester. Medical abortions have less than 0.5% risk of serious complications and do not affect a woman's health or future ability to become pregnant or give birth. In the case of rape or incest, forcin...

Should it be legal to have an abortion?

TalkForLife
tyrob99

I am fully against abortion. It should not be legal under any circumstances in any country. Reasons: If abortion was legal; murder should be legal. Abortion is murder. It is killing a child. A killer / A murderer. Killing = Murder. If then abortion was fine then Oscar Pistorius would be innocent. Even if he killed Reeva purposefully. Why? He killed her because he didn't want her. It would make his life easier. So basically he "aborted" her when she was much older. Please take o...

Here is how this debate works: 1st round we introduce ourselves, 2nd round we debate, and 3rd round we wrap everything up. I (TheMaster_Debator) am against abortion. My Intro: I am very pro-life. I did not get my pro-life beliefs from church, as I did not go for quite some time. I choose to be pro-life because of statistics, which I will present in Round 2....

Abortion

Abortion goes against so many things. First of all it goes against the law. The fetus is a human being and very alive. The definition of a living thing is anything with cells and the fetus is made of human cells. Therefore, it is alive and you are killing a human being which is against the law. It also goes against basic rights and responsibilities. It is the woman's right to engage in intercourse and it is her responsibility to take care of the child. It also takes away the child's rights. It c...

Abortion

Although it should be a women's right to chose. Aren't we born with certain unalienable rights? Granite the baby has not yet been born, but that doesn't give us a right to disregard it of its rights and take an innocent life. After a certain period of time it is no longer a clump of cells, but a living organism. Therefore abortion is wrong and inhuman....

Bullish's position on abortion (restarted)

emospongebob527
Bullish

This is the restarted version of my debate with Bullish over his view on abortion. I had Ore_Ele restart it because extenuating circumstances on my part caused me to forfeit. I don't anticipate that I will be forfeiting this one, so I think the debate will be uninterrupted. Burden of proof is on Pro to defend his position.Debate Rules:1) Pro will write his case in round 1.2) Pro...

Abortion should be legal in the United States

Canidae
Dan4reason

5 rounds 72 hours 10,000 characters I will be arguing, clearly, that abortion should be legal in the US. Con will argue that it should be illegal. Distinctions such as in the case of rape or life endangerment, etc., are flexible. I only ask that you argue against abortion, in some cases, immediately after conception. It would be a less interesting argument if all we were debating was late-term abortions. Thank you, and I'm looking forward to some fun, some practice formulating a soli...
