if we allow killing similiar to partial birth abortion... accidental birth killing should be allowed

dairygirl4u2c
bp_1138

if we would allow partial birth abortion, by extension, we should also allow killing the baby during an accidental birth that occurs during an attempted abortion. i would like a rhetorical debate. i am actually against this. but, i want someone who is for partial birth abortion etc but say they are against this to debate me. i am aware that partial birth is banned by federal law now... but it's a hypothetical debate. (we could also consider pregnancies that are beginning to be delievered, a...

if a healthy infant can be saved instead of aborted later in pregnancy... it should be requried

dairygirl4u2c

High-speed rail should receive federal government subsidy in-place of current subsidies on highways

nyyfan
ConservativePolitico

My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system. The first round is acceptance, the second is stating your argument, third round attempt to dispute claims made by the opponent in second round. I lowered the max number of characters to keep arguments concise. I look forward to a good debate, good luck....

You shall debate all beliefs other than neutral agnosticism. That is end of it all. Do the hulahoop!!!!!!!!...
