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...

JBphilo

Abortion is legal in the UK up to 24 weeks. I will argue that this should be lowered to 20 weeks. DEFINITIONS Abortion: a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus. [reference- http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion] First round is for acceptance. No semantics....

Abortion not only ends the life of a person, but ends the life in an unfair manner, the child could grow to do many things for the benefit of anyone; they could discover anything. Ending any life is unfair, but ending a life without giving it a chance, is even more unfair....

If the fetus is a human person, then abortion is generally immoral

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...

abortion should ge not legalize

siyara

i think the abortion should be legalize because there is about 69% where most of the mothers doesn't have a comfort to give birth . so i think the abortion should be legalize because for example if there is a mother with a lesser earning and have got a devorse from his husband how can she give a birth suppose there are no good relatives also, so how can she give a birth to a child. if she thinks the child will get mentally ill she may think to give death to the child not because she doesn't love...

Should Abortion be illegal in America?

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...

To clarify on what I am arguing, I am arguing that, if the mother's life is not in danger, abortion is morally wrong....

Abortion

I know that you're scared and don't want to listen, but let me tell you a story before you make your decision. There was once a young girl in the same place as you, she wasn't sure if this she'd be able to go through. She was trapped by her own choices with no easy way out, she chose the hardest choice but the best without a doubt. She was really just a girl but was wise and chose the option, to give her baby a better life and give her up for adoption. She knew what truly...
