Abortion is murder and should not be allowed except in extreme cases.
Debate Rounds (3)
In this scenario abortion is the safest way to terminate a baby.
But they being human tend to make mistakes (and sometimes a little ill luck like damaged condom). when that happens; to prevent them from taking drastic measures abortion was introduced.
we cannot ban abortion all together because if we do it will endanger the life of both the mother and the baby albeit baby is going to die anyway.
i being a man neither supports abortion nor against it (because i've never been pregnant)
P.S. I'm quiet sure that banning of marijuana is because of it's highly addictive nature and it has nothing to do with babies and pregnant women.
Ps. Marijuana is not "highly addictive" it can be addictive in rare cases but it is illegal because it would cost oil and timber industries billions if hemp became a viable material.
we being imperfect tend to make mistakes.
Nobody sees the possibility of having an unplanned pregnancy when they are having sex that is why it is called an 'unplanned' pregnancy.
when a woman gets pregnant, there are two options; she wants the baby or she doesn't want the baby.
in the former, the choice is clear that she doesn't want the baby not a second longer and definely not for nine months, even if you stop her from having an abortion and talk to her about murdering an innocent life, she will kill the baby. her option clearly states the choice-- SHE DOESN'T WANT THE BABY.
you cannot change someone choice on a matter because you think that what you think is right. You can only advise them, the choices they make are clearly their own.
now that her choice is clear and you still want to stop her forcefully, she will hurt herself and cause a miscarrige.
To protect her from hurting herself abortion is held.
in the latter where she want to have the baby she can have it and later if financial problem arises she can opt to give her to foster care.
when we talk about consequences of our deeds.
the important thing in this whole argument is that the pregnancy is unplanned or sudden, you can talk all about innocent murder or inner self and karma but in the end it all narrows down to a choice.
she doesn't want the baby. period.
now all you can think is how to terminate it safetly without harming the mother.
this theory about facing consequences of our deeds is just a thought, you cannot force it on someone. many tend to hide from these consequence or ignore them.
people being independent do what they want to do. You cannot impose your thought on them. everyone has a different perception in life and that is what makes them different.
What you think is good in your thoughts may be a total opposite in other people's mind.

Reasons for voting decision: I agreed with con before the debate and after only because my own argument for abortions to be legal I consider to be more logical than the ones that the pro argued should be illegal. Neither had bad conduct, con had better spelling and grammar though. Con made a more convincing argument and neither used sources.
