Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible

Fox-McCloud
lit.wakefield

Resolution Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible In this debate I will defend the view that it is generally morally impermissible to deliberately terminate the pregnancy two weeks after the moment of fertilization; until the presence of the primitive streak one might argue that the zygote is not definitely an individual — in that period it is yet able to split into twins. In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...

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...

point of fetal pain should be used instead o viability as abortion regulation standard

dairygirl4u2c
iamanatheistandthisiswhy

instead of being able to regulate when abortion can occur based on viability, it should be based on when the fetus starts feeling pain. the fact we'd have to use pain killers to kill the fetus shows the inhumanity of what is being done. viability is not a magic spot of when a fetus feels pain, or is suddenly a human, take it back a few moments and it's still a person. why not just take it back to the humane point of fetus pain?...

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...

Should abortion be illegal in the United States (In Most Cases)

blimp456
SakuraBlossom950

[Before I go on two things need to be cleared up right away; 1- Things like, "God's will" will not be brought into this debate. 2- Every living organism on Earth in simplicity is either a cell or a mass of cells.] This is how the debate will go; Round 1: Acceptance and initial argument (Usually one sentence long, maybe two) Round 2: Extending argument in more detail Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Rebutting Rebuttals (You can only rebut things that were stated in Round 3 by your opponent) And...
