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....

The common law definition of death is the stoppage of a heartbeat and most functioning organs. Mos...

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...

Resolution: Women should be allowed by law to abort their fetus. BoP is shared. Con should make his arguments in Round 1. Voting rules: Forfeit in round 1, 2 or 3 means debate loss. Con using more than 300 characters in Round 4 means Con lost. Pro's arguments: 1) p1: Fetus is part of woman's body. p2: Everyone owns themselves. c): Fetus is in woman's property. 2) p1: Chances are woman who does not want child will be bad parent. p2.1: People raised by bad parents are (in average) worse...

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....
