a pregnant woman should not always be able to have an abortion

dairygirl4u2c

please note: most sane commentators to this debate say i am giving myself too much discretion, that it's not fair for that reason. i use the word 'not always' which means sometimes the woman should be able to abort. despite this, there are tons who have knee jerk responses and dont even negate that the woman shouldnt always have access to an abortion. not sure how they often win despite that, but. so, for this debate, you must accept that a woman should be able to abort a week before her due...

Abortion is a mother's right.

Torvald
InVinoVeritas

It should be the prerogative of the mother to have a fetus or embryo aborted, since it is not a child, but an extension of her own body, and remains such until the third trimester. I challenge anyone to make a valid case for why a mother should not be allowed to have an abortion. The debate shall be conducted under the following rules: 1. No trolling 2. Ordered, at least to some extent, and civil conduct 3. Legible and comprehensible English 4. No sensationalism; unfounded statements like...

Abortion is Wrong

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!...

Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....
