Abortion should be legal up through the second trimester, regardless of circumstance


Round Structure: 1. Acceptance 2. Opening statements (No refutations) 3. Counter arguments 4. Counter arguments + closing statement This will be a policy debate about abortion in the United States. My goal is to support the conclusion that pregnancy termination procedures should be made legal to all women, so long as the procedure takes place during either the first or second trimester (approx 26 weeks after conception), regardless of a women's reasoning for seeking this procedure. My opp...

Should Abortion be illegal?


The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court's 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. I believe abortion should continue on to be legal because as the independence state we are free we all have freedom some people use that freedom has an excuse or to made bad choices but we have no right to fight or break the law. I really believe that abortion is wrong but it's n...

Abortion is always Morally Permissible


PrefaceI have recently been having some philosophical and logical consistency issues with my Pro-Choice stance. I would therefore like to defend a Pro-Life position to help me understand that persepective, and to determine which point of view I find more compelling.To accept this debate, you must have completed 4 debates already. To vote you must have a minimum of 3,000 ELO. Because this is such a contentious issue, I would also like to remind voters...

Abortion should be illegal.


My argument is that abortion should be illegal. Why it would be murder: It's still alive when it's in it's mother stomach, it has the possibility of growing up to a child or a adult. Your still destroying a life if you do abortion, it's not like it's a rock or anything, it is a human being in it's first organic stage. Let it grow and then it would have a personality, we convict people of murder for killing people why should this be allowed? Why the fetus is still alive: How do we tell so...

Abortion involves a mother taking the life of an unborn, defenseless child. Many argue that rape pregnancies pose a situation in which abortion can and/ or should be considered. What I don't understand is why the person least involved in the matter at all (the baby) is being punished most severely. That makes no sense. Another common argument is that the unborn fetus is not yet living at the time of abortion. Abortions can be done up to 24 weeks into the pregnancy. A baby's heart starts beating...

Male Abortion


This is a conversation certain corners of the Internet have been having recently and I noticed there weren't any debates about it on here (as far as I can tell) so I decided to open it up. Male Abortion "...the youth wing of Sweden"s Liberal Party have proposed allowing expectant fathers to "legally abort" their unborn babies right up until the 18th week of pregnancy " the cut off time for actual, physical abortions in the country." "The male abortion would be a legal decision, allowing...
