Abortion is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Apologician
TheSkeptic

I'm going to offer a brief outline of the pro-life position that I defend, and I will engage in further argumentation in the subsequent rounds. The fundamental issue regarding the abortion debate is not women's rights or other factors which concern personal autonomy, but over the status of the unborn child. Variants of the personal choice argument presuppose that the unborn child is not a human person, for if the unborn child is indeed a human person, then no amount of freedom justifies its e...

Abortion takes the life of a distinct, living, whole human being

SkepticalDebatee

This is a very simply debate with a simple contention. Yet I am amazed at how many people deny it. Therefore, I intend to to put this to rest once and for all. The parameters of this debate are narrow, therefore, any acceptor of this challenge ought to argue on-topic. I will defend, from science, three basic contentions: Abortion takes the life of a... 1) Distinct 2) Living 3) Whole ...human being. That is it. Morally speaking, nothing is at stake explicitly. This is to challeng...

I will start by debunking the most common arguments against abortion: Reason rebutted 1. Life begins at conception. There are many things wrong with this. One, an infant born the day after conception will not survive, no chance. Two, the qualifications for life are reproduction, adaption, growth, and homeostasis (maintaining stable body conditions) though an infant can grow, sure it can grow. Conversely, an early born or unborn infant cannot maintain homeostasis on it's own. It needs to be in...

Abortion

Abortion is terrible. You are killing someone who hasn't even had the chance to take their first breath. During abortion, typically the baby's heart starts to beat and brain activity is found. They are alive and people who engage in abortion are committing murder. Taking the choice away from a child and hurting something that doesn't have the ability to defend itself. Even if you can not support this child, adoption is always and option. It may not be a fun place for them to live but atleast the...

I believe that abortion is wrong because it is murder. My rivals might say that a fetus is not a person. A person is a person no matter how small though. I do believe however that abortion should be available in the case of rape in incest or if it threatens the life of the mother. Any one have an opinion...

A late-term abortion is an abortion that occurs later on in the pregnancy. While the baby is more developed. This process kills a human being in the womb, by tearing the arms and legs from the body and then crushing the skull and removing it from the vaginal area. This IS murder....

Abortion Being Allowed In The US

samanthafalk
itslizyall

Abortion is a big issue in the US, and it is suddenly getting popular. There are many disadvantages. The side affects are even crucial for the mother that was once bearing a child. Second, it would be killing, and if it was with 2 actual people, that would be a felony and prison time. Third, the memory would be horrible to live with, unless killing is a passion. And lastly, there are other options. There is also adoption and many other things that are much better than having an abortion....
