Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible

Fox-McCloud
lit.wakefield

Resolution Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible In this debate I will defend the view that it is generally morally impermissible to deliberately terminate the pregnancy two weeks after the moment of fertilization; until the presence of the primitive streak one might argue that the zygote is not definitely an individual — in that period it is yet able to split into twins. In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...

Abortion Is Not Birth Control.

katieJ8

Though I agree with Abortion I do not agree that it should be used as a form of birth control. If some idiot teenager forgets to use a condom they should not have the option of abortion. They can keep it or give it away. Now if a woman is raped or there are special circumstances then it should be an option. I know I am straddling the fence on this issue but this is how I see it. I believe in using abortion responsibly. Every life is precious so we should be thoughtful of how we treat it....

Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs

Claim: Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs Argument: Over 98% of abortion cases happen prior to the 21st week of pregnancy(1). Over 59% of abortion cases happen prior to the 9th week of pregnancy(1). My argument will rest on maintaining that abortion is morally permissible at least up to nine weeks into the pregnancy. 1. http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html...

For a long time the argument of abortion has been going on. My opinion is that abortion is simply morally wrong. If you think that abortion should be legal, challenge me on this debate....

Abortion

RyanARush
NotPurpleHaze

For the sake of this debate I have taken the position of being against the very controversial issue that is abortion. Personally I am oppose to abortion. I believe that taking the life of a human being, or soon to be human being, is always an evil, never a good*. However, if one looks at my profile they will see, under my opinions on political issues, that I am undecided on this issue and I truly am. I very much would like to discuss this issue and maybe through this will I come to a verdict of...

Abortion Should Remain Legal

Women should have the right to their own bodies, not the government. A fetus is not a human, it is a potential human. Because of that, a potential human does not have any rights....

Abortion as a Conflict of Rights

jwebb893
Curtispov11

Before I begin my argument, I'd like to say that I'm approaching the topic from a rights-based perspective. Thus, if your system of ethics is Utilitarian or Virtue Based, then the issue would be null. This is only for those who believe in rights and their place in legal and political systems. Next, I'd like to say that the following argument rests on the principle that the agents involved are RATIONAL, FREE agents. Thus, they are of age and capable of making decisions independently. I UNDERST...

Abortion practiced on a baby with a beating heart should be illegal

MewxVenus
flynn09

I stand on the pro side of this argument. Abortion. Simply put...ew. Babies have a right to live. Before I say anything, I would like to point out that this resolution says "practiced on a baby with a beating heart". Babies are not considered alive and can't feel pain until they are 8 weeks old. Abortion before this point, I personally believe, is ok. Not necessarily right, but definitely ok. Now, I know a common argument for this topic is "WHAT ABOUT THE RAPE BABIES?" Well, my friends, it i...

Abortion and Contraceptives

DeFool
Anti-atheist

In the abortion debate, a great many fallacies and generally poor arguments are often made. A famous example of this is the gleeful way in which liberals point out that the self-described "Pro-Life" community tends to support war, the death penalty, and other things that do not match up well with the description of "pro-Life." I want to discuss another set of ideas that are connected to the abortion debate - sexual activity. I observe that most of those...
