Abortion

I do think that abortion should be allowed but for the purposes of a good debate, I shall be playing devil's advocate. Since life begins at conception, abortion is akin to murder as it is the act of taking a human's life. Why should people be given the death penalty in America for just one murder, when doctors are forced to do it as part of their job many times, and are not even put on trial? Round 1. Basic statements Round 2. Main argument Round 3. Rebuttals...

Should abortion be legal?

Hello, Jim, and thank you for accepting my debate about this wildly controversial subject, first let's lay out some groundwork1. The first round can be your first argument round2. Religion stays out of this debate, it isn't viable to bring up in a morality argument3. We are not arguing if you can kill a fetus "days before birth", because not only does a minute percentage of people think that is okay, neither do it, it is not representative of the message...

Abortion

According to http://www.numberofabortions.com/ There have been over 90,000 Abortions today across the entire world. The majority of people might choose the pro side to this, abortion should exist. And I have noticed the main argument for this is "The baby is not considered alive and/or human unit birth." An Abortion typically occurs between the 13th and the 20th weeks of fetal development. By the 13th week of fetal development, the baby has already developed its organs and body parts meaning t...

Is Abortion Immoral?

masterdrave

Resolved: Abortion is immoral. My goal as Pro is to prove that abortion is immoral. My opponent may try to prove that abortion is not immoral. This debate isn't about whether abortion has or can have benefits - rather, whether it is immoral or not. By accepting this debate, my opponent agrees to the following definitions: Immoral: Not conforming to accepted standards of morality. Morality: Principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior. A...

Should Abortion be Legal?

EqualityForeverAndEver

Hello! Welcome to my first debate in a long time. My View: Abortion should be legal in all 50 states of the United States of America. Making abortion illiegal is not the duty of the government. What a person chooses to do with their own bodies should not be controlled by the government. If abortion is illegal, then women's bodily autonomy is violated. In countries where abortion is legal, there are far fewer deaths from unsafe abortions. When abortion was legalized in the USA, deaths...

Abortion should in most cases be illegal.

As this was a direct challenge, if you don't agree with the con side of this argument you can just decline. a few rules before I state my position. 1. no argumentum ad hominems (personal attacks and the like.) 2. no new arguments in final rebuttals per standard debate rules. 3. standard debate rules regarding dropped arguments apply. The first rounds will just be for acceptance, after that comes arguments (and for the second speaker attacks on my case.) I believe that abortion should...

The urgent issue of the modern society. Are you for or against abortion?

Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, over 58 million unborn children have been killed, more than the entire population of Spain. That's 155 babies per hour. About 1 every 24 seconds. God"s plan for them will be ruined forever. Can we remain indifferent to such immense human slaughter? NO. So please let's discuss this question in more details. I personally completely agree with the words of Megan Clancy, who claims: "There are women who are raped and become pregnant; the problem is that th...

Abortion is Immoral.

I will take the stance of Pro-Life. I believe that a fetus is considered a form of human life and has the rights a human has from the moment of fertilization to birth. A few things to begin, scientists have established that life begins at fertilization (Princeton). With this in mind, it is important to understand that an abortion at any week during the pregnancy is the taking of a life, regardless of the physical traits that the fetus has yet&n...
