Abortion is genocide. Some of the biggest pro-choice people admit that the argument that a baby is not alive in the womb is inadequate. From the moment the child is conceived, it is a human. Murder is the act of killing a human life. Why should their be a double standard that while "in the womb" it doesn't count as murder?

Abortion is not genoside and shouldnt be illegal becuase if somone has an unexpected pregnancy such as a teen they should get rid of if while its nothing, or else the child has a miserable life with a mother who had it when she was teanager

Once again, when a child is in the womb they are not nothing. They are a human being. Therefore, it is murder at any stage in the pregnancy. And who are we to judge whether teens are fit to be adequate parents or not. The mother doesn't have to keep the child. She can always give it up for adoption, which is a long process that only good qualified parents get to partake in. The fact is women and young teens fall into the government's trap that having a child is her choice, when realistically we're giving women the choice of life or to murder their child.

Sounds to me like you already are. And that you have no reason why abortions should be illegal except for peoples own selfishness about their life.

Until it is born a baby is but an extension of it's mother's body, therefore she can do absolutely anything she wants with it, just as she could chop off one of her own limbs or get plastic surgery.

lurkers and folks who would vote one way or the other based on the premise, not the debating skills.... that's why, if voters don't understand this, the votes are meaningless....

gang, we're NOT voting on whether or not you AGREE with the PREMISE of the debate!!!!!

the votes are for or against the debating skills of the debaters!!!!!!!!

....... and, of course, a lot of trolls here won't give a rat's butt about my comments above, so what the heck....

20-21 members commented and 30 voted.... and the mysterious 10 extras aren't talking or posting, so, to heck with 'em....

pro was still the better debater...., though i think i could provide some arguments that might beat her positions....

and as for the @#(^$#@ who linked to the fetus' ultrasound.... babies smile when they've got gas, too, after they're born...... are you implying that a 22-week-old fetus has a sense of humor and therefore is some degree of "human" that should make abortion/termination illegal?

there's NO logic in that.... don't even try to go there!

Hey Just out of curiosity, who in the hell gave Scrotes 12 votes? I had no decent argements because he gave me nothing to rebute!

thanks... i goofed on the first vote i made.....

in this debate, pro kept to the subject and con moved to abuse, slang and ad hominem attack, rather than bring any information, position or rationale to the "debate."

while he can get his photo on the web and his words up here for many to see, he has not shown much of a clue about what "debating" is about.

while i'm pro-choice, my vote has to go to the better debater. in this debate, i'd go so far as to say, "there was just one person in the debate, it wasn't con."

Blond guy, the whole point of this website is to debate people and then whoever provides the best argument, regardless of the voters opinion, gets the vote. This guy didn't even try to debate. You even admitted that you only voted for him because you have the same opinion as him. Weak.

Her argument wasn't circular. Even if it was, keni didn't point that out.

I think blond guy meant that he agreed with scrotes's argument. Still, even though I agree with scrotes's position, I believe keni won this one because scrotes did not refute her argument. It's as if he didn't read and decided to write whatever.

Just to clarify, I agree with his argument. He made a good argument but her argument was circular therefore he wins. I don't like his character but I support his argument. Get it?

goldspurs, who are you to tell people how to vote?

Blond Guy, obviously you don't understand the point of this website. The vote is not a poll but is intended to vote for the best debater.
