Should Women Have the Option of Abortion?

Fruit-Salad
Lee001

First, let me start of by saying that this is for practice. The definition of abortion is: "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy." I think that women should be allowed to have an abortion because no in should be forced to carry a child they don't want. Most religious people argue that life begins in the womb. I find this to be partially true. Yes, physical life begins in the womb, but actual consciousness begins after t...

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 Should be Illegalized

Abortion is the process by which a baby is terminated while still in its mother's uterus. I consider this to be a form of murder, because you are killing a baby while it is helpless in the womb. Usually, by the time a mother finds out that she is pregnant, the baby already has a beating heart, fingers, a torso and legs, and is about the size of a quarter. It essentially has all the body parts of a human being. So, that proves that you aren't killing a blob of cells, you're killing a baby. You al...

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...

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

Abortion

The idea that you have the right to take the life away from a unique human being is outright evil. There are no logical factors that somehow allows the mother to usurp the fetus. Why does the mother get to choose the fate of another human being?...

I'd like to start of by claiming my side, as I am for limiting, if not making abortion illegal. I will present my arguments in each of the following rounds and plan to have a well-mannered debate. I believe it is important to experience both sides of the story, so I ask that we keep this clean and honorable. Let's debate shall we?...

Does Abortion Kill a Human Being?

JoshBrahm
jeeoh

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...
