i am for abortion because if a person needs to ge tthe baby aborted then they will most likely have it done. say if a person is raped, or is extremely poor, then they have no buissness bringing the child into the world.

plus if they are from the ages of 13- 30 then they should consider having it aborted.

not saying they shouldnt have a choice.

i am pro choice.

Hello midget,

First and foremost, I hope to educate you on some of the issues that you have brought to the table. The first thing is, a human baby should never ever be aborted. There is never a reason, unless the reason is that the mother may die from giving birth.

Your first point is "say if a person is raped, or is extremely poor, then they have no buissness bringing the child into the world."

This is ridiculous, because for one, it doesn't matter if the family is poor or not, if you can not fund for the baby, then there is ALWAYS adoption. This way the child will be able to at least grow up in a family that will be willing to take them in.

Also, if a person is raped, how fair is it to kill a baby when they had no say in the matter? If anything, the rapist should be put to death, not the baby.

2. "plus if they are from the ages of 13- 30 then they should consider having it aborted."

Why? What if they are married? Is there an age limit in having babies now? Did you know that after the age of 30 it becomes HARDER for a woman to get pregnant if she wanted to have children? It is actually easier to conceive a child at a younger age. And like I have said earlier, there is always adoption.

One thing I don't understand is that it is known that you CAN GET PREGNANT from engaging in sex. Sex is consensual, meaning that you have to agree to have it (unless it is raped, see above). To abort a baby that has resulted in your own doing is a selfish and degenerate act. It is saying, I don't care about anyone but myself. It is never right to abort a baby, no matter what stage in the pregnancy it is.

I apologize for not having any links in my argument, but my internet is not working properly right now and only few websites are working.

Since you didn't respond to any of my questions, I can't respond to you so I guess you will just have to go back and answer the questions I asked in the first one.

Well, this is your second round that you missed so I am guessing that you got busy or something. If you want you can rechallenge me when you have the time.

How can anyone really vote for PRO, he forfeited Round 2 and Round 3 and made a statement that between 13 and 30 people should consider abortion ...and never even explained why . That statement in my eyes should be explained ..no reasoning just numbers

well, I am absolutely against abortion. I just don't see how someone could know that they are having a baby, then voluntarily kill it. I wouldn't be able to find it in me.

I am neither pro life, nor pro choice...I take the holistic approach. The approach that many do not even understand....

I take the mental and physical health of the mother into consideration as well as the physical health of the fetus.

Abortion should never be used as a form of birth control....but if there are medical issues that involve the life of the mother, and/or the life of the fetus, then these should be discussed prior to making a decision either way.

I am actually against sex before marriage! If anyone use abortion as birth control, she should be sent into jail!

Pro , I am very curious what exactly you mean when you say between the ages of 13 and 30 a women should have the pregnancy aborted ... WHY???????? I was almost 23 when I had my daughter. I am married happily and raising my 4 year old daughter. We financially make more than enough money to take care of her and I am even a stay at home mom, so why would I have had my baby aborted because of my age , thats absurd.
