On balance, abortion is immoral

Philocat
triangle.128k

I am challenging triangle.128k to a debate regarding the morality of abortion. He seems quite convinced that abortion is morally justifiied, so I anticipate a lively intellectual discourse with him.Con will argue that abortion is morally justified, I will argue that it is not. The burden of proof is shared.DefinitionsAbortion: 'a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus'

Abortion should be the woman's choice. There is a lot of mental preparation for pregnancy and childbirth. It is the woman's body, why wouldn't she be able to choose?...

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...
