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

Abortion is wrong because takes an innocent life. In the case of the infant, there is no choice. The choice of aborting a child relies on the mother. When it comes to religion, God ultimately chooses life and death. Abortion is a form of murder. It is the mother's responsibility to take care of her child....

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...

Abortion

Con When a women has an abortion, she is removing only a clump of cells from her body ( I am opposed abortion after 6 months ). Should the government force her to birth what is technically a parasite in her body? Arguing that a fetus is a human and should receive basic human rights is a viable reason for not aborting, yet if you do believe that a fetus is a human, and thus with human rights, a fetus does not have the right to live inside another organism (just as any other human), nor does the...

Abortion.

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....

Abortion is morally acceptable

Philocat
awr700

I know there's been about a million of these debates but I haven't often debated the issue and would like some practice :) First round is for acceptance and for anything you would like to say before the debate. To clarify on what I am arguing, I am arguing that, if the mother's life is not in danger, abortion is morally wrong....
