Abortion

I don't know how Pro-Choice supporters justify Abortion. Do you not think about the child or not care? I almost broke into tears of a story on a baby being aborted that grabbed the surgeons hands during the abortion. Looking at pictures, they abort babies no bigger than my thumb. What's the difference from killing a baby that already came out of the womb? http://www.jillstanek.com/archives/2009/08/newsweek_report.html...

Abortion

In our country we should not be able to abort a child. Abortion is murdering and destroying a human life. This topic came up in the book Unwind by Neal Shusterman. In the book people are allowed to Unwind their child once they are 13 years old. Once a child is 19 they cannot be Unwind ed anymore. Unwinding is taking the vital organs about a young person and giving them to a donor. Technically the person who got Unwind ed is still "alive" they are just in another person. It is a very controversia...

Abortion Ought to be Legal

Andromeda_Z
Flipper72725

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 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...

Abortion

[Definitions] For clarity I pose the following definitions. Trimester: 3 months Conception: meeting of the sperm and egg [Contention] I hereby propose illegalizing abortion after the 21st day of conception except to save a woman's life, or in the case of rape or incest. [Reasons] 1. On the 21st day after conception the fetal heart starts to beat and most major organs are functioning. The common law definition of death is the stoppage of a heartbeat and most functioning organs. Mos...

Abortion takes the life of a distinct, living, whole human being

Ambassador95
SkepticalDebatee

This is a very simply debate with a simple contention. Yet I am amazed at how many people deny it. Therefore, I intend to to put this to rest once and for all. The parameters of this debate are narrow, therefore, any acceptor of this challenge ought to argue on-topic. I will defend, from science, three basic contentions: Abortion takes the life of a... 1) Distinct 2) Living 3) Whole ...human being. That is it. Morally speaking, nothing is at stake explicitly. This is to challeng...

Should abortion be legal?

LiliAnna
ArhangheluDanyel

Abortion should not be legal because of many reasons. First, women need to think about their unborn babies who are not responsible for this situation. These unborn babies should have the privilege to live and grow into a normal person. It could also be a risk for the mothers health. It can expose various dangers and she could lose fertility.nWomen who have abortions often suffer major psychological damage from the experience along with, in some cases, the father of the child. Abortion is a form...

is abortion ok

I will start by debunking the most common arguments against abortion: Reason rebutted 1. Life begins at conception. There are many things wrong with this. One, an infant born the day after conception will not survive, no chance. Two, the qualifications for life are reproduction, adaption, growth, and homeostasis (maintaining stable body conditions) though an infant can grow, sure it can grow. Conversely, an early born or unborn infant cannot maintain homeostasis on it's own. It needs to be in...
