Abortion should not be funded through tax payer money

Dilara

Abortion should not be funded through tax payer money. 1. Pro choices often accuse pro lifers of pushing our views on them when we speak out about abortion. If they are forcing us to pay for their abortions aren't they pushing their views on us?. Why the double standard. How come it's ok to give tax money to pro choice causes but not pro life causes. I don't work 9 hours a day at a job I don't like so I can pay for something I consider cruel and immoral. 2. No one should be forced to pay for s...

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

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 should in most cases be illegal.

As this was a direct challenge, if you don't agree with the con side of this argument you can just decline. a few rules before I state my position. 1. no argumentum ad hominems (personal attacks and the like.) 2. no new arguments in final rebuttals per standard debate rules. 3. standard debate rules regarding dropped arguments apply. The first rounds will just be for acceptance, after that comes arguments (and for the second speaker attacks on my case.) I believe that abortion should...

Resolved: Abortion is morally impermissible

unitedandy
Dookieman

IntroductionI want to thank Con for agreeing to participate in this debate. He is an excellent advocate of the Pro-Choice position, so hopefully we can have a worthwhile exchange. In this first round, I will put forward an affirmative argument that abortion is impermissible. Also, I want to make it clear that the debate resolution is whether abortion in general is morally impermissible...

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.
