Abortion is murder of a human life. Women have full control of there bodies and have the choice of not having unprotected sex

Thanks for sending me the challenge!

The BoP in this debate is on you, as you are the one making the positive claim that abortion is murder. You have not yet given any reasons as to why abortion is murder, just a bare assertion that it is. To win this debate you must prove that abortion is murder.

You say women have full control of their bodies and the choice of not having unprotected sex, but other circumstances also apply, such as rape or when birth control or protection fails.

Seeing as I have nothing to respond to, I shall end my arguments here. Over to Con.

Sorry if im rusty this is one of my first debates. " Some 1.06 million abortions were performed in 2011, down from 1.21 million abortions in 2008, a decline of 13%.
" Women who have never been married account for one-third of abortions in America.
" Less than 1% of all abortions take place because of rape and/or incest.
Women give an average of 3.7 reasons why they are seeking an abortion including the following:
" 21% Inadequate finances
" 21% Not ready for responsibility
" 16% Woman"s life would be changed too much
" 12% Problems with relationships, unmarried
" 11% Too young and/or immature
" 8% Children are grown; she has all she wants
" 3% Baby has possible health problems
" <1% Pregnancy caused by rape/incest
" 4% Other
Rape is a very small portion and so is incest. Women have the full choice not to have sex and if they do and they don't want children then simply wear protection. It is a very rare occasion that birth control fails and it depends on the brand of control you purchase same with condoms

Also you'll want to provide definitions because abortion technically isn't murder. Murder by definition is illegal, and abortion is legal.

Are you against abortion in all cases or is it okay with rape or incest or life of the mother?
