Abortion

Con When a women has an abortion, she is removing only a clump of cells from her body ( I am opposed abortion after 6 months ). Should the government force her to birth what is technically a parasite in her body? Arguing that a fetus is a human and should receive basic human rights is a viable reason for not aborting, yet if you do believe that a fetus is a human, and thus with human rights, a fetus does not have the right to live inside another organism (just as any other human), nor does the...

Abortion should be legal.

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 Is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Freeman
JoshBrahm

Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate. And I only hope that I can do as well while I proceed to defend the pro-choice position. In this debate I'm going to argue that abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Unlike a person, a f...

Abortion.

ScotNat
breretons07

Abortion not only ends the life of a person, but ends the life in an unfair manner, the child could grow to do many things for the benefit of anyone; they could discover anything. Ending any life is unfair, but ending a life without giving it a chance, is even more unfair....

Abortion

H2O2

Hello and I would like to start by saying that I am looking for a philosophical/moral debate and not a religious one. My opinion on abortion is that it is wrong to kill a sentient life form and therefor if the baby can think I don't think a abortion should be allowed but up until then it is simply a part of the human body and therefor ok to abort...

Resolved: The evidence supports the Abortion-Crime link

16kadams
Nivek

== Clarification == For those unaware, there has been a supposed link between abortion and crime rates. The argument can be found in Freakonomics and Levitt and Donahue 2001. As the theory goes, as abortion becomes liberalized, crime rates will decrease. == Rules == 1. Forfeiting a round will be counted as a concession 2. Arguments should be visible within the debate, sources can be placed in an outside link if needed 3. PRO will have the BOP to prove that abortion decreases crime...

abortion should be legal

Vm98

Abortion should be legal. Why so? First of all we are talking about freedom of choice. Everyone has the freedom to do what their want with their body and for mothers it includes their foetus. Why so? First of all the foetus doesn't go into government's protection at having the right to live. Some people continuously argue that foetus has the right to live. This is however very wrong. First of all the abortions mostly happen before the foetus are considered fully alive with its organs bodily func...

Should abortion be legal or illegal?

Arrogant
TBR

Could be your choice but is it your baby's? A mother kills her unborn child because it is unwanted, but she's not charged for murder. Is it right? There is about 46 million abortions per year worldwide, and approximately 115,000 per day, but why? Is it because rape or incest, health problems with either the mother or the child, or just because the baby's unwanted or inconvenient at the time? (The Alan Guttmacher Institute.) Abortion should be banned because too many babies are being killed f...

Abortion should be federally illegal.

Abortion should be federally illegal. Before I defend this argument, I will provide definitions for the key terms in my case. Abortion: The medical term which refers to the termination of an embryo or fetus while it is still in the womb (operationally defined very broadly, since this is a debate over a proposed definition for this word) Kill: To end the life of (M-W) Life: The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in fun...
