Abortion, except in the cases of rape or when the mother's life is endangered, should be banned.

My argument is simple: (1) A fetus, or embryo, is an individual human being (2) Abortion kills this innocent human being. (3) Abortion should be banned. The main contention that needs to argued for is (1). In support of this, I will use an objective way to show that fetuses are individual, human beings: DNA. William Lane Craig, Professor of Philosophy at Biola University, has said, "Already in that moment of conception, that individual is either male or female, depending on whether he or s...

Partial Birth Abortion Should Not Be Allowed Even If A Woman Was Raped.

DarkBitch
Puck

Ok here is my challenge I want this debate to be specific, My argument is against partial birth abortion (PBA) in the case of a woman having conceived through rape only! I don't wish to debate about PBA being used in cases of fetal disability or anything like that. My argument is a woman who is raped and conceives as a result of that rape should not legally be allowed to have a partial birth abortion. If you believe she should be allowed then lets debate. Please note I am not talking...

Abortion is Immoral --- Tournament Debate, round 1

wiploc
MasterKage

Resolved: Abortion is Immoral. MasterKage is Pro. He believes abortion is immoral, wrong, should not be done. He can make exceptions for rape and incest if he chooses, but the point is that abortion itself is a wrong thing, from the moment of conception. He doesn't have to argue that abortion should be illegal, but he should argue that it is immoral. Pro has the burden of proof. Wiploc is Con. His personal opinion is that abortion is good; lots of people should abort. Requiring abort...

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
actorgurl

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

schoolglutton
frank_gore_is_da_best

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...

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...
