Should abortion be abolished?


Abortion should not be abolished. Abortion can be a way to save a suffering instead of killing a life in some extent. If the parent can't provide a basic living standard for the child, they shouldn't cruelly force the child to be born and to endure the miserable life. The child does have the right to live, but how could you let the child bear the irresponsible actions of the parents. Having a baby in not only giving birth, but also raising the baby and being responsible for him or her....

Abortion should be federally illegal.


Abortion should be federally illegal. Before I defend this argument, I will provide definitions for the key terms in my case. Abortion: The medical term which refers to the termination of an embryo or fetus while it is still in the womb (operationally defined very broadly, since this is a debate over a proposed definition for this word) Kill: To end the life of (M-W) Life: The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in fun...

Abortion should be entirely legal, although it should never be paid for by taxpayers. The simple fact that it is the mothers choice to terminate an UNBORN child/fetus, and she can afford to pay for the procedure is good enough reason to keep abortion legal....

Why Abortion should be banned


When you go and get an abortion you are giving up a life that God gave you no matter if its an mistake. God wanted you to have that baby and you are killing it. If someone would have done that to you then you wouldn't be here at this very moment talking about how it should be done. Its good that now in some states you cant get an Abortion if you are over 12 weeks because by then the baby is starting to develop its organs and arms. Your killing a human being but you as a person don't realize that...

Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, the right to life is an inalienable right given to every innocent human being, therefore, abortion, as the direct result of the killing of an innocent human child, violates the inalienable right to life. Thus, abortion is wrong. I would like to argue against abortion. There is no layout other than that my opponent should first provide a retort to the paragraph stated above in round one. This is just a free discussion in a relaxed manner. Als...

Abortion is wrong because takes an innocent life. In the case of the infant, there is no choice. The choice of aborting a child relies on the mother. When it comes to religion, God ultimately chooses life and death. Abortion is a form of murder. It is the mother's responsibility to take care of her child....

Abortion is legalized murder


Abortion is nothing more, than the disgusting legalization of murder. You are taking the life of an innocent baby for nothing more than your own selfishness, because you don't want to deal with the responsibility of a child, yet still continue to have sex without the use of contraceptives. I am 100% okay with the use of birth control, in any form, but abortion is an entirely different thing because you are committing murder against someone who can't help or defend itself. Its no different than k...
