Abortion should be legal

Material_Girl
SitaraMusica

I've wanted to debate this topic for a while now, and my opponent has shown some interest in it on the forums, so I thought this would be a good debate. Since the resolution is very straightforward I don't think an acceptance round is needed. Con may use their text space however they want to. Opening arguments: 1) Uncertainty about the beginning of life The scientific answer to the question of whether life begins at conception, at birth, or at some other point during a pregnancy is not...

Quality should be valued over sanctity of life

davidlyhrocks

The sanctity of life should be valued over the quality of life. Every single life has a chance to flourish and become great, no matter what the situation the life is placed in. Every one of those lives deserve a chance to change the world or make the world a better place than the state of the world when they were born with. By killing unborn babies, the elderly, the handicapped, and the useless, we are killing potentially great people. We are murdering possible leaders and great minds of the Ear...

There is no unchanging, separate self.

Strycora

First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

Abortion should be legalized

Guv
Dookieman

If a woman does not want/isn't ready for/cannot raise a child, then why should she have to go through giving birth to it? An unborn child doesn't have a birthday, a name, and depending on how far into the pregnancy the woman is, not even a gender, let alone a conscience mind or emotions. If we refuse a woman to choose what happens to her body, we are stripping her of a right that all people are entitled to....
