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...

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...

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...

Abortion

I deliberately left the topic of this debate broad, to avoid contrived and un-passionate arguments. If you are firmly pro-choice, and are passionate about the so called right to choice, then I encourage you to debate me. If you choose to accept, then simply tell me you accept as your first argument, and then we can start. Good luck....

Abortion should be illegal

Abortion SHOULD be illegal. Why? You ask. Simply this: If murder is illegal then why isn't abortion. It's worse than murder actually because the unborn babies can not resist. If you want to get rid of child putting the child out for Adoption is the morally correct thing to do. ~RULES~ 1. No Swearing 2. No Personal attacking...

Should abortion be abolished or permitted by law?

TatianaGu

The abortion debate asks whether it can be right to stop a pregnancy before childbirth. It is a very painful topic for women and men who find themselves facing the moral dilemma of whether or not to terminate a pregnancy. It's one of the most polarising moral issues - most people are on one side or the other, very few are undecided. I consider myself a...
