As my topic clearly states, my opponent and I shall debate whether or not Abortions should be legal. I am hoping I can do well with this being my first debate. For this debate I will take the postition of being against Abortion, so my opponent shall be for it.

I am not really going to state much else towards my arguement. I am going to wait until I actually have an opponent.

Thank you to my opponent for starting this debate. There is a 500 character limit.

Abortion is not morally unjust and does not disturb our society in a negative way. However, all things are harmful in excess. Abortion should be legal, but restricted so as to ensure the health and wellbeing of the mother and for what is in the best interests of society. This is currently the case.

Since my opponent proposes the change, I await his argument before I proceed.

Thank you.

When you say that it is not morally unjust, it all depends on who you are talking with. If it is all right with you I would like to pull religion in but I am unsure of your standing upon that, so I will say it for the next round. However if you think about this from the moment of conception, accidental or purposfully, there is a human lifeform within the mothers womb. So to allow the abortion is to say it is morally all right to kill another human.

Thank you to my opponent for his insight.

I thank my opponent for her response.

I dictate something to be morally unjust when it has a sharp, noticeable, negative impact on society, as dictated by society. Morality is relative, what is right and wrong changes with how society's values weigh against each other. Human life is not sacred, we kill humans all the time. Warfare, Capital Punishment, Law Enforcement, Euthanasia. An unwanted fetus has no value in society's eyes. Thus, it is acceptable to abort.

Thank you to my opponent.
