Abortion

yazbakmsc2014

Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. There are those that take the side of pro-life, pro-choice, and those with no opinion/side. I believe that life begins at conception and that abortion, as defined above, is the killing of a child. How could the mother determine the death of her child? This would mean that she holds the entire life of her child in her hands. Imagine if she suddenly changed her mind and did not...

Does Abortion Kill a Human Being?

JoshBrahm

I believe abortion kills a human being. We know the unborn is biologically a member of the human species, because she comes from human parents. Her DNA could also be tested in utero, and we would always find that she has human DNA. Most pro-abortion-choice people, however, agree with the above statement. Their issue is usually the question of whether the human entity killed is a "person," or a member of our species that has basic rights. The pro-choice ad...

Abortion should be illegal in the United States

Medical abortion first became legal in the United States in 1973 under the Roe v. Wade supreme court ruling. In this debate, I wish to show that this ruling should be overturned, as abortion goes against the Constitution. I will prove this using logic and clear facts. I will start by defining my terms. There are many kinds of abortion, but in this debate I will specifically address the type of abortion legalized in Roe v.Wade. That is, abortion before the point of viability. I also wish to in...
