Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible

Fox-McCloud
lit.wakefield

Resolution Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible In this debate I will defend the view that it is generally morally impermissible to deliberately terminate the pregnancy two weeks after the moment of fertilization; until the presence of the primitive streak one might argue that the zygote is not definitely an individual — in that period it is yet able to split into twins. In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...

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 is murder and it should be banned worldwide

guess_who
RavenDebater

When an abortion is carried out, you"re killing a small, innocent human being. You"re terminating a life. Terminating a life is wrong and should be punished. Anyone performing abortions - legally and illegally - should be put in jail and given a huge fine. It"s never okay to have an abortion, and there"s no valid reasons for killing an innocent human being. Abortion should be banned worldwide, because it"s killing a human being. And killing - murder - is illegal. Abortion is murder and not on...

That in Most Cases, Abortion is Wrong.

I challenge sjrrj to this debate due to a heated exchange in the message section. The topic is that in most cases, abortion is wrong. The BoP is shared in this debate. I urge my opponent to use links and sources to back up evidence, as it should make for a better debate.

The Life at Conception Act would effectively negate the constitutional right to abortion

I've invited philochristos to this debate. I look forward to our exchange. This debate is inspired by another currently-running debate about whether Congress should pass the Life at Conception Act. The debate can be found here: http://www.debate.org/debate/69932/ And the text of the bill can be found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/1091/text I am intrigued by a related question not being discussed in that debate. The proponents of the bill argue that the...

Is Abortion Okay

Squirrelnuts57
frostyclaw

I believe that abortion should not be committed for multiple reasons. So many people have been debating over this for several years now and I want to know what some people think about it and why. I do not see why so many people can agree with babies dying before they have had a chance in the world and I hope that others agree. If you had sex, and then got pregnant, it's not the baby's fault. Please tell me why it is alright to kill the child off before it's ever got the chance to see the light o...

Abortion should be legalized

Guv
Dookieman

If a woman does not want/isn't ready for/cannot raise a child, then why should she have to go through giving birth to it? An unborn child doesn't have a birthday, a name, and depending on how far into the pregnancy the woman is, not even a gender, let alone a conscience mind or emotions. If we refuse a woman to choose what happens to her body, we are stripping her of a right that all people are entitled to....
