Hi, this is my first debate and I'm arguing for the side of Pro Choice.
ZachZimmey

Con

Thank you for allowing me to debate this issue with you. Since you gave no real background on what your stance is, I am going to guess that you believe abortion is morally correct and can be performed.

Abortion is basically the legalized killing of an unborn child. There can be many reasons, such as rape, incest, or the parents just don't want to care for the child. There is, however, a safer solution to these problems, which is a little thing people call "adoption". There are over 2 million infertile couples waiting for a child that they can raise, regardless of health issues, such as Down syndrome, Spina bifida, etc. However, only 1% of pregnant women searching for help will even inquire about adoptions. Abortions are depriving couples from having a child of their own, which is a very selfish tjhing to do in many people's eyes, including my own.
Brown, Kristi Burton. Adoption: Why So Many Choose the First and What We Can Do. Live Action News. www.livenews.com.15 May. 2012. 21 Jan. 2013. http://www.lifenews.com......

I also believe that life begins at conception, therefore that child is a person who has the right to live. In 1982, Ronald Reagan stated that all people, particularly unborn children, as stated by the Declaration of Independence, are untitled to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." A fetus is not senseless a mass of tissue, it is a precious living human child that has not yet experienced life, and by aborting it, you are depriving it of that right.

Abortion, based on these few examples is morally wrong and should not be tolerated in the world today.

I presume that I shouldn't post an argument to be fair to Miramar, but he hasn't been online since he posted this debate. I believe that I should win.

You should clarify what exactly your argument for "pro choice" is. Whoever accepts this debate has nothing to respond to, you have not presented an argument.
