Should abortion be legal?

JimShady

Hello, Jim, and thank you for accepting my debate about this wildly controversial subject, first let's lay out some groundwork1. The first round can be your first argument round2. Religion stays out of this debate, it isn't viable to bring up in a morality argument3. We are not arguing if you can kill a fetus "days before birth", because not only does a minute percentage of people think that is okay, neither do it, it is not representative of the message...

Abortion should in most cases be illegal.

As this was a direct challenge, if you don't agree with the con side of this argument you can just decline. a few rules before I state my position. 1. no argumentum ad hominems (personal attacks and the like.) 2. no new arguments in final rebuttals per standard debate rules. 3. standard debate rules regarding dropped arguments apply. The first rounds will just be for acceptance, after that comes arguments (and for the second speaker attacks on my case.) I believe that abortion should...

If the fetus is a human person, then abortion is generally immoral

Trent_H
Grape

Debate DescriptionIn this debate Pro (myself) will argue that abortion is generally immoral because it directly takes the life of a human person who possesses the same basic rights that you and I have. Con will argue that the fetus is a person with said rights, but that abortion is still morally acceptable. I ask that Con only accept the debate in this round and wait to post their opening argument until round two. Round three will consist of rebuttal...

Is Abortion Morally Acceptable?

TheSensibleConservative
squonk

No, Abortion is not morally acceptable. the horrific genocide caused by this "It's just a Fetus" wave is sickening. About 125,000 babies are slaughtered in one day, coming to the heinous count of 40-50 MILLION babies massacred every year. What makes this worse is the acceptance from the Left as a whole; this is a GENOCIDE! regardless of the vomit-inducing death tolls, this also tells young adults that their choices have no consequences they have to face at a possible life-altering decisions. All...

Abortion is Immoral.

bfkennedy

I will take the stance of Pro-Life. I believe that a fetus is considered a form of human life and has the rights a human has from the moment of fertilization to birth. A few things to begin, scientists have established that life begins at fertilization (Princeton). With this in mind, it is important to understand that an abortion at any week during the pregnancy is the taking of a life, regardless of the physical traits that the fetus has yet&n...

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...
