I've noticed my opponent complaining vehemently over the new enforcement of site policy by the moderators. The policy can be found here:http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/40226/My opponent (since the posting of the reformed policy) has been very outspoken in his opposition of the policy. Well, I would like to challenge his position. I believe that the new site policy will be generally good.

Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....

So we will focus on discussing changes in movies based on books.* Con will be arguing that the book version is generally better. Pro will be arguing that movies are equally as good, if not better....along with justifying changes.There is a shared BoP. Fir...

Should it be legal to have an abortion?

TalkForLife
tyrob99

I am fully against abortion. It should not be legal under any circumstances in any country. Reasons: If abortion was legal; murder should be legal. Abortion is murder. It is killing a child. A killer / A murderer. Killing = Murder. If then abortion was fine then Oscar Pistorius would be innocent. Even if he killed Reeva purposefully. Why? He killed her because he didn't want her. It would make his life easier. So basically he "aborted" her when she was much older. Please take o...
