Should Abortion be illegal in America?

JessilynnKing
Solomon_Orlando

Abortion is the ultimate child abuse. A child is a Human, not a choice. If you want to give your child a better life than what you think or want to give them, adoption is ALWAYS a choice. The embryo or fetus may not be fully developed, but at 18 days, the heartbeat begins beating, at 30 days, blood begins flowing through their veins , at 8 weeks, all organs are functioning, at 9 weeks the baby has fingerprints, at 10 weeks the baby can feel pain, at 12 weeks the baby can smile. For you, this ma...

Abortion is generally immoral

zmikecuber

Resolved: Abortion is generally immoral.Four rounds. Shared BoP. No new arguments in R4. R1 for acceptance.I shall argue that abortion is immoral in most cases. This means excluding extraordinary cases such as rape, incest, to save the life of the mother, etc. So I shall be arguing that in cases where the individual gave consent and partook in sex, resulting in a pregnancy, abortion is immoral. My opponent shall a...

Resolved: The evidence supports the Abortion-Crime link

16kadams
Nivek

== Clarification == For those unaware, there has been a supposed link between abortion and crime rates. The argument can be found in Freakonomics and Levitt and Donahue 2001. As the theory goes, as abortion becomes liberalized, crime rates will decrease. == Rules == 1. Forfeiting a round will be counted as a concession 2. Arguments should be visible within the debate, sources can be placed in an outside link if needed 3. PRO will have the BOP to prove that abortion decreases crime...

abortion should be legal

Abortion should be legal. Why so? First of all we are talking about freedom of choice. Everyone has the freedom to do what their want with their body and for mothers it includes their foetus. Why so? First of all the foetus doesn't go into government's protection at having the right to live. Some people continuously argue that foetus has the right to live. This is however very wrong. First of all the abortions mostly happen before the foetus are considered fully alive with its organs bodily func...

Watch silent scream, a 28 minute movie narrated by former abortion doctor and now pro life activist Bernard nathanson. The movie shows an abortion through an ultra sound. Abortion kills a baby and is immoral. Please don't debate me until you've watched the movie. Happy Martin Luther King day!...

Abortion aka kill you child because of your mistake

RobieKhan
KonstanBen

It makes no sense to take away a fetuses right to live just to make your life easier. It is an independent human with it's own dna. And is morally wrong to execute a defenceless, unborn child. I am pro-life because i stand for the rights of the unborn and give a voice to the voiceless. No mother should be judge,jury, and executioner on their own child....

Abortion is murder and it should be banned worldwide

guess_who
RavenDebater

When an abortion is carried out, you"re killing a small, innocent human being. You"re terminating a life. Terminating a life is wrong and should be punished. Anyone performing abortions - legally and illegally - should be put in jail and given a huge fine. It"s never okay to have an abortion, and there"s no valid reasons for killing an innocent human being. Abortion should be banned worldwide, because it"s killing a human being. And killing - murder - is illegal. Abortion is murder and not on...

The Life at Conception Act would effectively negate the constitutional right to abortion

CASmnl42
philochristos

I've invited philochristos to this debate. I look forward to our exchange. This debate is inspired by another currently-running debate about whether Congress should pass the Life at Conception Act. The debate can be found here: http://www.debate.org/debate/69932/ And the text of the bill can be found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/1091/text I am intrigued by a related question not being discussed in that debate. The proponents of the bill argue that the...
