Does rape justify having an abortion?

ark97pink
TruthHurts

Please keep the first round solely for acceptance. I have taken the stance that being a victim of rape does not justify having an abortion. I am writing an opinion paper on this topic for a entrance exam for school and I am interested in learning the other side to this argument. I am sure this debate will greatly benefit my paper and I appreciate your time....

YaHey

Should abortion be made illegal for women who are NOT rape victims? I will take the pro life position, and I assume you will take the pro choice position. This first round will be just acceptance. You cannot use religion to justify your viewpoints...

Abortion Is Morally Permissible

Freeman
Trent_H

I want to begin by saying how pleased I am to debate Trent on this most important of moral issues. Like my opponent, I have a deep interest in bioethics. So I'm very much looking forward to discussing the philosophical aspects of abortion with such a capable and passionate contender. In this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no good reasons to think that abortion is morally wrong. And secondly, there are good reasons to think that abortion is morally permissib...

Abortion is wrong.

The comment section wasn't working. I wanted to continue our discussion because you brought up good points and I want to understand where your coming from. I also want to stick up for a the innocent victims of abortion. I wouldn't get pregnant at 15. I'm not a slu*. If I did get pregnant as a teen I would keep my baby. If a girl doesn't want the baby she can give it up. If a girl chooses to sleep around than she should suffer the consequences for her own actions. The baby shouldn't suffer becau...

Abortion is morally permissible within 1st trimester

Vere_Mendacium
JasperFrancisShickadance

Abortion is morally permissible within the 1st trimester, and should not require the pretext of a rape, incest, or medical complication to validate it as such. While it should require the consent of both 'parents' (in my opinion), we will not discuss this point in addition. This debate will center only on the morality of abortion within the period between conception and the 1st trimester. This time period allows for an unknowingly pregnant mother time to notice the pregnancy through lack of a me...
