Abortion

[Before I go on, two things will be cleared up right away; 1- God will not be brought into this. 2- The fact is that every single organism on Earth and pretty much in the entire universe is either a cell or a mass of cells.] This is how the debate will be organized; Round 1: Acceptance and stating initial argument (Usually a sentence or maybe two) Round 2: Extending argument stated in Round 1 with some details. Round 3: Rebutting arguments stated in Round 2. Round 4: Rebutting rebuttals t...

Abortion is genocide and should be illegal in the United States

Abortion is genocide. Some of the biggest pro-choice people admit that the argument that a baby is not alive in the womb is inadequate. From the moment the child is conceived, it is a human. Murder is the act of killing a human life. Why should their be a double standard that while "in the womb" it doesn't count as murder?...

that the united states should not value abortion it is wrong and selfish

nater

why are we letting all these innocent children die. The government should not highly value abortion. Killing babies is wrong as well as sex before marriage. I stand resolve that instead of abortion that we need to think of adoption so that a baby can have a mom and dad. If you cannot handle a baby because you are not able too than think of the baby instead of yourself. People tend to forget that what if our parents believed in killing us instead of keeping us or at least putting us up for adopti...

Abortion is immoral.

I thank whomever takes this debate. I will allow my opponent to define the moral principals we are dealing with, to a reasonable extent, but reserve the right to contest them if I choose. I will also allow my opponent to have the first round. No semantics. No utilitarianism. No forfeiting....

The Abortion of a Fetus is NEVER Moral NOR and Imperative

JustCallMeTarzan
I_heart_debate

DAT has put forth this opinion, and now I challenge him to back up his claim. DAT makes this claim in response to my position that in some cases it is a moral imperative to abort the fetus. The proposition on offer is that the abortion of a fetus is NEVER moral NOR an imperative. Since DAT has refused to accept this debate (see comments) I now open it to the public. Like I mentioned in my response to DAT below - we will use appropriate medical terminology - there will be no mincing of non-...

Abortion is a form of murder

PervRat

This is, I believe, the most contentious and embattled political issue of all time. I am actually quite afraid to take it on, especially being so new here, but I hope my unique position (an anti-abortion atheist) might make things more challenging than usual for an opponent otherwise equally entrenched, because they would be accustomed to dealing with religious arguments I will not use. Because of the contentiousness, and admittedly selfishly to allow myself more leeway to amend whatever scre...

Abortion

My first debate is on abortion. Now why is it that some people think that abortion is so wrong? As one can see I'm pro-choice. I believe that it is a woman's choice wither or not to keep the child. No one should be forced to have a child that they didn't want. And just because someone has an abortion it does not mean that they are any different. There are facts that abortion isn't the worse thing in the world. for starters, Abortion is not used as a form of contraception. Pregnancy can occur ev...

To be against abortion and in favor of capital punishment is hypocritical.

ellyphant
Jokerdude

This has irked me for a long time; I cannot completely understand how anyone can support killing in one context but not in another, let alone in this order. I believe that all killing is murder, no matter the context; the only reason I say that I support abortion in my profile is because it will take place no matter what, and I would prefer that it takes place in a clean room with properly trained medical practitioners than in a dark alley. What shocks me the most is how many strongly religio...
