Abortion Is Morally Permissible

Freeman
Trent_H

I want to begin by saying how pleased I am to debate Trent on this most important of moral issues. Like my opponent, I have a deep interest in bioethics. So I'm very much looking forward to discussing the philosophical aspects of abortion with such a capable and passionate contender. In this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no good reasons to think that abortion is morally wrong. And secondly, there are good reasons to think that abortion is morally permissib...

Abortion should be legalized nation wide for any woman over the age of 16 without parental consent

Currently, you must be 18 to have an abortion without parental consent. Some states require that you must have both parents consent if you want to get an abortion younger than that. I believe it is wrong to place a woman's choice over her body in her parent's hands. A 16 year old girl is more than capable of deciding what to do with her own body. It's her body and therefore, her choice. It's not up to the parent to make a decision that would affect her for the rest of her life. She should not be...

I believe that abortion is morally wrong in ALL cases except if the life of the mother is in danger.I think that an embryo is a human being the moment egg is fertilized.Therefore according to the Declaration of Independence all human beings are entitled to "life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness"( first paragraph).The reason that I believe that a child is human at the first stage of its life because it was created by human reproduction,The embryo contains human DNA the second the egg is ferti...

THW construct additional abortion clinics in populated areas where there are few

Leugen9001
Impact94

Introduction:Imagine that you’re pregnant. You can’t bear to go on with the pregnancy, because your newborn would surely not fare well under your current economic state, in which you are burdened with so much debt that you could barely provide for yourself, let alone a newborn. The nearest abortion clinic is a few hundred miles away in another city—another city that you cannot travel to, considering the fact that your car has been repossessed....

Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible

Fox-McCloud
lit.wakefield

Resolution Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible In this debate I will defend the view that it is generally morally impermissible to deliberately terminate the pregnancy two weeks after the moment of fertilization; until the presence of the primitive streak one might argue that the zygote is not definitely an individual — in that period it is yet able to split into twins. In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...

Abortion is wrong

TeaPartyRepublican
badassrookie

Life starts at conception. This is the definition given in any respectable medical textbook. "To declare a beginning of life at any point after the fusing of a wife"s egg and a husband"s contribution is irrational and an exercise in sophistic chicanery. Only machines such as clocks and cars come into existence part by part. Living beings come into existence all at once and gradually unfold their world of innate potential. A living human person begins to exist at the moment of conception, even th...
