Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....

Abortion is Immoral --- Tournament Debate, round 1

wiploc
MasterKage

Resolved: Abortion is Immoral. MasterKage is Pro. He believes abortion is immoral, wrong, should not be done. He can make exceptions for rape and incest if he chooses, but the point is that abortion itself is a wrong thing, from the moment of conception. He doesn't have to argue that abortion should be illegal, but he should argue that it is immoral. Pro has the burden of proof. Wiploc is Con. His personal opinion is that abortion is good; lots of people should abort. Requiring abort...

Abortion is immoral

Dookieman
Guidestone

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements by Pro and Con (no rebuttals). Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. This debate will be centered on the moral issue concerning abortion, so do not bring Roe v. Wade or the law into this discussion. It's about the moral issue only. Pro and Con will also not be allowed to argue whether morality is objective or subjective. Because it's not relevant to the topic at hand....

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 Ought to be Legal

Andromeda_Z
Flipper72725

This round is for acceptance only. Abortion is defined as "the willful termination of a pregnancy". Forfeiture of a round will result in the loss of the conduct point, as this wastes three days and is generally rude. Accepting this debate implies acceptance of these rules and definitions, and if you wish, you may provide definitions of your own in this round or in subsequent rounds as they become necessary. Good luck!...

Abortion

jezziqqua
Mehul555

Giving birth puts the life of the mother more at risk than the baby. So if a fetus was defected, and wouldn't even be able to survive after birth, why should the mother risk her life to give birth to a baby that won't even survive? And why should the mother become so attached to a baby.. her baby for 9 long months only for the baby to not even have a chance to survive? That is too cruel for the mother. A woman should be allowed have an abortion....
