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.

Should Abortion be Legal?

EqualityForeverAndEver

Hello! I am arguing the side of pro-choice. I chose this for the following reasons: (1)Condoms and birth control do not always work, so abortions need to be a backup plan.

Abortion is wrong, there are many other things you can do than to kill the innocent child inside of you, like adoption. If killing a human being is wrong, then why isn't abortion? Abortion is murder, you are killing the child that is inside of you and that child is human....

Thank you in advance for accepting, Con.As Pro, I shall be arguing that abortion should be illegal with no exceptions. Abortion shall be defined in this debate as "a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus."[1]The first round will be for acceptance. Trolling and insults will result in a full seven-point loss.Sources1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion
