Hello, welcome to this debate on Abortion. I will be taking the stance of pro that abortion is wrong in all cases except when the mothers life is in danger.

Go head and make your first argument.

Good luck and lets have a fun debate.

I look forward to this debate and thank you for the challenge; however we will have to agree to some ground rules and definitions.

Since I believe that abortion is right in most cases, I will first define those cases, which will be in accordance with current abortion laws. Since I live in Illinois, I will cite that law, which you will have to agree to up front.

"720 ILCS 510/1, et seq.; 750 ILCS 70/1, et seq.; act barred by permanent injunction by unpublished opinion from Zbaraz v. Ryan, No. 84 CV771 (N.D. Ill. 1996)

Statutory Definition of Illegal Abortion - Use of any instrument, drug, or any other device to terminate pregnancy of a woman known to be pregnant with an intention other than to increase the probability of live birth, to preserve the life or health of the child after live birth, or to remove a dead fetus."

Statutory Definition of Legal Abortion - If fetus nonviable and abortion not necessary to preserve mother's health, M.D. must certify nonviability; if fetus is viable, abortion must be medically necessary to preserve life, health of mother; M.D. must certify this necessity.
http://statelaws.findlaw.com...

The definition of nonviability is has follows: Any baby that is under 26 weeks is not viable and is not a life. Life does not begin until a baby can live outside of a mother"s womb.

Good luck!

Abortion is a woman's right if done within the legal guidelines.

A fetus is not a life until it is viable outside of the mother's womb.

In conclusion, a woman has a natural right to abort a non-viable fetus if she does not want to carry it to term for personal emotional reasons, e.g., she cannot handle the discomfort; she believes it will ruin her life and be a serious financial difficulty. She beliefs that she will not be a fit mother. There are many reasons. But, it is her body, and no one has the right to tell her what she has to do. Again, as long as the abortion is legal, it is her right.

I thank by opponent for the debate.
