tobacco rights/abortion

JP
abard124

Ok, I was looking at your profile, and I saw some serious inconsistencies and was just wondering if you'd maybe back it up. Here's my argument: If someone (you) was pro abortion, then they are saying that, even though a fetus is being killed it's ok because it is the mother's choice and we live in a free country so they should be allowed to choose. Ok, that's fine. The problem is that you're against tobacco rights. This makes absolutely no sense. I can't understand why anyone would be agains...

Abortion should be illegal.

aaronyero
Forever23

My argument is that abortion should be illegal. Why it would be murder: It's still alive when it's in it's mother stomach, it has the possibility of growing up to a child or a adult. Your still destroying a life if you do abortion, it's not like it's a rock or anything, it is a human being in it's first organic stage. Let it grow and then it would have a personality, we convict people of murder for killing people why should this be allowed? Why the fetus is still alive: How do we tell so...

Abortion before the end of the second trimester is murder

heisenberg
Daniel1197

This debate will only involve abortions during the first or second trimester of pregnancy. Pro will have the burden of proving that abortion before the end of the second trimester is murder. As Con, I will have to refute or invalidate this claim. Definitions: Murder: The unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another [1] Abortion: The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy [2] Second Trimester of Pregnancy...

Roe v. Wade (the case which legalized abortion) should be held up.

I will start by revealing that I am approaching this with the methodology (one of many) set forth by sociologists Peter Berger and Anton Zijderveld.

Is abortion murder?

GOP
Pwner

I am Pro, meaning that I say "yes" to the aforementioned question. So, I am FOR the stance that abortion is murder. I will argue for that definition. The Con, on the other hand, will argue that the answer is "no." Rule: 1. In the first round, the Con shall simply accept, as opposed to making an argument right away. The second and third rounds are for debating. Note: You may get judged by how you do or do not follow the aforementioned rule....

Late term abortion is wrong, and ought to be illegal

mattrodstrom
stylezco

Reasonable arguments regarding abortion are arguments about rights. Pro-choice people claim that a woman's right to privacy, and right to act in regard to her own body ought to be protected. Pro-life people argue that unborn children have rights that must be protected as well I would argue that since late term unborn babies are developed to a level of physiological complexity at which thought can occur, their is no reason whatsoever that they ought not be treated as persons, and be ackno...

Abortion

Before I start, I urge anyone who is taking the time to read this to always make it a point to research, research and research any topic you hear in school, or on the news, or read in a magazine or newspaper that you are even the slightest bit interested in. There are points taught in public schools that cover only one side of any given subject. Rarely is the entire spectrum of a given subject covered completely. The topic of abortion hit me after a recent debate on a current story out of Ca...

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...
