Abortion

[Definitions] For clarity I pose the following definitions. Trimester: 3 months Conception: meeting of the sperm and egg [Contention] I hereby propose illegalizing abortion after the 21st day of conception except to save a woman's life, or in the case of rape or incest. [Reasons] 1. On the 21st day after conception the fetal heart starts to beat and most major organs are functioning. The common law definition of death is the stoppage of a heartbeat and most functioning organs. Mos...

Abortion should be illegal.

My argument is that abortion should be illegal. Why it would be murder: It's still alive when it's in it's mother stomach, it has the possibility of growing up to a child or a adult. Your still destroying a life if you do abortion, it's not like it's a rock or anything, it is a human being in it's first organic stage. Let it grow and then it would have a personality, we convict people of murder for killing people why should this be allowed? Why the fetus is still alive: How do we tell so...

Abortion is Murder

Is the unborn baby alive? Yes? Then you've just admitted abortion is murder; murder being the taking away of a human life by another human. No? Then you're disputing the biological fact that life begins at conception. Choose your answer, pro-choicer. Abortion is murder, murder is illegal, so why isn't abortion illegal?...

Abortion involves a mother taking the life of an unborn, defenseless child. Many argue that rape pregnancies pose a situation in which abortion can and/ or should be considered. What I don't understand is why the person least involved in the matter at all (the baby) is being punished most severely. That makes no sense. Another common argument is that the unborn fetus is not yet living at the time of abortion. Abortions can be done up to 24 weeks into the pregnancy. A baby's heart starts beating...

Abortion should be legal

People carrying babies should definitely have the option to abort. Their decision isn't hurting anyone, since the fetus being aborted is given pain medication, along with the person carrying the fetus. In some cases, it would be better to abort the child than have it live in bad conditions, or have its life risked during birth. If you don't agree with abortion, then you can choose not to abort your baby. Abortion is a good option in some cases, and everyone should have the right to their body!!!...

Abortion

Abortion is wrong and cruel. It's proven science that fetuses have beating hearts and are human, which means killing them is called "MURDER". I'll say it again. MUR-DER. Hillary Clinton during the 3rd presidential debate stated that we cannot be forcing women to give birth to children. She called the unborn babies "children"? So know we are killing innocent children and the government is wasting people's hard earned money on it. That's outrageous! When people make the claim they want "women's he...

Abortion

According to http://www.numberofabortions.com/ There have been over 90,000 Abortions today across the entire world. The majority of people might choose the pro side to this, abortion should exist. And I have noticed the main argument for this is "The baby is not considered alive and/or human unit birth." An Abortion typically occurs between the 13th and the 20th weeks of fetal development. By the 13th week of fetal development, the baby has already developed its organs and body parts meaning t...
