Abortion

Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. There are those that take the side of pro-life, pro-choice, and those with no opinion/side. I believe that life begins at conception and that abortion, as defined above, is the killing of a child.

Hello everyone! I am taking the stance that abortion is wrong in every case except when the mother's life is in danger. I take a purely logical and ethical stance on this issue and no bible verses will be cited- don't worry. Be respectful, try and be prompt with your responses and we should have a pretty fun debate on our hands. Good luck!...

I am writing an opinion paper on this topic for a entrance exam for school and I am interested in learning the other side to this argument. I am sure this debate will greatly benefit my paper and I appreciate your time....

YaHey
