Good luck to whomever takes this debate
In my opening statement I will explain why I think abortion should be legal if the circumstances are met that I stated in round one
1 Any time during the first trimester. During the first trimester I feel it is not too late for the women who is carrying the baby to change her mind because it is her who is carrying the baby. Also during the first trimester the fetus isn't fully grown and stands no chance of surviving out side of the womb, therefore it is not a human yet.
2 In the instance of rape. If a woman is raped she shouldn't have to be reminded of it everyday and not have to feel the pain of childbirth. Also having a baby should be a choice and getting raped usually isn't a choice
3 When the mothers life is in danger. If at any time during a pregnancy a doctor decides that child could be deadly for a woman I think an abortion should be an option, because if the woman goes into labor and she dies both lives could be lost and that would be a terrible tragedy.
I look forward to your opening statement.
I understand that you now agree with me on first trimester abortion, but what about my other two reasons abortions should legal, rape and when the mothers life is in danger. I would like to see your opinions on them. Ok, I guess I will just strengthen my opinions.
1)When rape occurs. It is not the Women's fault that she got raped and she should still be able to get an abortion after the first trimester.
2) When the mothers life is in danger. We might lose two lives if an abortion doesn't happen here, but of course if the women doesn't want an abortion that is her choice.
Hopefully next time there is more to write about.
This round I would like to see you attack my other points
