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...

Abortion Ought to be Legal

This round is for acceptance only. Abortion is defined as "the willful termination of a pregnancy". Forfeiture of a round will result in the loss of the conduct point, as this wastes three days and is generally rude. Accepting this debate implies acceptance of these rules and definitions, and if you wish, you may provide definitions of your own in this round or in subsequent rounds as they become necessary. Good luck!...

Abortion is murder and should be illegal. The human embryo has a separate DNA from the mother. At conception the embryo has genetic code which determines everything from eye color to personality. It is not a mothers right to choose to kill her own child because it is not her body....

Abortion is wrong!

I completely think that abortion is right and people shouldn't judge women for making that choice to have an abortion. As being a woman, I see both sides to this story however abortion is right. The definition: Abortion- the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks(1). I would like to start off saying that the if the abortion is taken place before 18 weeks the foetus is unable to feel the pain. Also the foetus isn't developed in the early s...

Should international law overthrow abortion?

AmericaTheFatherland
QuestForQuestions

For soldier to die is not murder but as an act of war. Aborting a child is considered murder. We, pro-life, say murdering an unborn is not constitutional under international law. Killing as act of war is not murder, but denying the fetus to live is homicide....

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...

Abortion is terrible. You are killing someone who hasn't even had the chance to take their first breath. During abortion, typically the baby's heart starts to beat and brain activity is found. They are alive and people who engage in abortion are committing murder. Taking the choice away from a child and hurting something that doesn't have the ability to defend itself. Even if you can not support this child, adoption is always and option. It may not be a fun place for them to live but atleast the...

abortion

I believe that abortion is wrong because it is murder. My rivals might say that a fetus is not a person. A person is a person no matter how small though. I do believe however that abortion should be available in the case of rape in incest or if it threatens the life of the mother. Any one have an opinion...
