Abortion

Jake33ss

I believe abortion is wrong and should not be legal. The pro-abortion side says that a woman should have a choice to decide if her baby should live . In response to this arguement I have two points 1.women had never had this choice till now and 2.even if they call the baby a fetus it does not change the fact that if the "fetus" was not aborted there would be one more person alive...

My opponent shall a...

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 is legalized murder

Brandumful
Viridiel

Abortion is nothing more, than the disgusting legalization of murder. You are taking the life of an innocent baby for nothing more than your own selfishness, because you don't want to deal with the responsibility of a child, yet still continue to have sex without the use of contraceptives. I am 100% okay with the use of birth control, in any form, but abortion is an entirely different thing because you are committing murder against someone who can't help or defend itself. Its no different than k...

Abortion is wrong

TeaPartyRepublican
badassrookie

Life starts at conception. This is the definition given in any respectable medical textbook. "To declare a beginning of life at any point after the fusing of a wife"s egg and a husband"s contribution is irrational and an exercise in sophistic chicanery. Only machines such as clocks and cars come into existence part by part. Living beings come into existence all at once and gradually unfold their world of innate potential. A living human person begins to exist at the moment of conception, even th...

In some cases, abortion can be ruled as a justifiable homicide.

YeshuaIsTheOneTrueGod
cathaystewie

First, let me specify that I oppose elective abortion, but I support it for the following reasons: The health of the mother is adversly effected by pregnancy, the child will suffer anyway,, the mother is a mental patient who is traumatized by (pregnancy would make me suicidal),, and so on. If the mother is raped, abortion can be justified if the pregnancy causes her to relive that trauma. I am a modeerate when it comes to abortion....
