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...

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

Why would you want to harm an innocent life that is just beginning to grow. you can't say it isn't a live yet because even when it is still developing it has a heart beat. the earliest stage is called an embryo not just any embryo but your embryo and in a few months it will be called a fetus which is the baby before it is born. If the parents don't want the child they should have just put it up for adoption not kill it. they are making an innocent life over the parents mistake. You are taking aw...

Should abortion be legal

nathanael.hauschild
isaiah589

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...

Abortion is a mother's right.

Torvald
InVinoVeritas

It should be the prerogative of the mother to have a fetus or embryo aborted, since it is not a child, but an extension of her own body, and remains such until the third trimester. I challenge anyone to make a valid case for why a mother should not be allowed to have an abortion. The debate shall be conducted under the following rules: 1. No trolling 2. Ordered, at least to some extent, and civil conduct 3. Legible and comprehensible English 4. No sensationalism; unfounded statements like...
