Abortion should be illegal everywhere
Debate Rounds (3)
I welcome anyone to debate this topic with me. I welcome the challenge, and good luck friend.
Rights ought to be justified through observable results and our capacity for reason.
My arguments for abortion are as follows:
Abortion can be preventive - Drug use, family history and various other medical factors may significantly increase the probability of disease. With the assistance of a genetic counselor or other medical experts, parents will be able to predict the occurrence of disease with a considerable degree of accuracy. Parents ought to be able to have the choice of receiving an abortion according to the factors previously described if accidental pregnancy were to occur.
Resources - One of the potential benefits of abortion comes from its ability to prevent those with genetic or congenital diseases from entering society. Such diseases reduce an individual's ability to reach a level of physical or mental maturity that would allow them to produce resources at a rate that would meet or exceed those that were expended in order to insure their survival throughout their lifetime; especially when compared to an individual who would not require such treatment (examples include Tay-Sachs Disease and Anencephaly).
Medical Permissibility - Pregnancies that pose a significant medical risk to the female carrying a fetus should be considered allowable according to medical expertise not only because it may be determined that the fetus would not survive in such instances (while posing a significant risk to the mother) but also because the fetus may already be deceased yet still require removal (+1 - see definition of abortion).
+1 - (http://www.merriam-webster.com...)
Firejack forfeited this round.
The argument should instead read:
Pregnancies that pose a significant medical risk to the female carrying a fetus should be considered for abortion not only because it may be determined that the fetus would not survive in such instances (while posing a significant risk to the mother) but also because the fetus may already be deceased yet still require removal (+1 - see definition of abortion).
My opponent has forfeited the round and has not refuted any of my arguments; vote for con.
