Abortion is prima facie morally wrong.

Freeman
mongeese

Abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Simply put, all people's realization of the world is actualized at the level of their brain. If any entity - human and non-human alike - is sufficiently young in their cognitive development, they will be incapable of experiencing the world at various levels. As a result, a fetus certainly does not have the same capacity to experience the world the way in which a fully-grown a...

Abortion

Murder does not only mean if the HUMAN has Personhood it means the killing of a Human not just a Human Person, this said abortion is the Premeditated killing of an innocent. once a woman willingly has unprotected sex, they have given the right to the child that may be created because of that choice. also if you are raped its called go to the hospital that night, get the morning after pill and don't wait for weeks up on weeks, and you should have to PROVE beyond a shadow of a doubt that you were...

Abortion

ToriDivine
jzonda415

I think that yes, abortion should be legal/allowed. For me, abortion would be the last thing I would even consider doing. But I am not every other woman on the planet, and I do not have the same mind as they. If they want to abort their baby, we shouldn't be able to say anything against that. Sure, I may not be one to abort my child, but I have no right to say that they can't. I am not that woman. I am not in control of her mind or body. For someone to come up to her and tell her that no, she mu...

Legality of Abortion.

I would argue that abortion unless done due to rape, fetus deformation or because of a high risk to the women's health should be criminalised. The burden of proof would be shared....

A real debate on abortion

MrCarroll
Robikan

I will be taking the position that abortion is wrong, unethical, immoral, etc. My opponent will explain why abortion should be allowed. Definition of abortion - killing a fetus - aborting a pregnancy To show the gravity of the situation, here are some statistics: "In 2008, 1.21 million abortions were performed, down from 1.31 million in 2000. However, between 2005 and 2008, the long-term decline in abortions stalled. From 1973 through 2008, nearly 50 million legal abortions occurred"...

Abortion should be legal.

thunderbirdak
Ariesx

Hello to my opponent. I would like to set some ground rules and regulations for this debat, then explain my stance. I DO NOT want this to be a debat about the MORALITY of abortion, but rather, whether it should be legal in the US. I am fine with morality used as an argument, but not as a debate topoc. Beyond that, sources are not the primarily most important thing, but should be used, nevertheless, and also NO BASHING (ie you are pro-choice, you moraless b@$!ard!). This round is for acceptance o...

abortion

first of all, being pro choice does not mean i am "pro abortion". i don't want to force women to have an abortion. the fact of the matter is, i think its wrong to FORCE any woman that you will never meet to do or not do anything. and, by saying that you are "pro life", if you are not aware, means that you believe the government should not only have a say in a women's decision of whats right to do with her body and her child, but that it should have the only say, whether they know what the woman...

Abortion Should Be Illegal

DebatingPassion
bluesteel

Abortion is immoral. Once the sperm has fertilized the egg, life is created and even though not born. This concept can be easily misconceived as "not murder" but I beg to differ. I affirm this resolution by agreeing with philosophers on the truth that killing a fetus is still killing a human being. Murder. I thank my opponent for accepting this challenge and wish the best!...
