Abortion shouldn't be legalized
Debate Rounds (4)
1) Please remain civil during the debate. Those subscribed to the debate and involved and opposing against each other in the debate don't condone that type of behaviour. They are counter-productive and get you nowhere.
2) Please use feasible and reliable sources. It may be acceptable if you misinterpreted the specific argument that was presented (Whether it is he who instigated the debate or not) and is indeed, irrelevant.
Round 1: Pro: Rules
Con: Presentation & Acknowledging, often reluctantly, the position you are defending
Round 2: Pro: Presentation & Implying
Round 3: Pro: Rebuttals
Round 4: Pro: Arguments
Con: No further arguments. Simply leave as blank
Abortion: The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.
We shall use that mediocre and vague definition above to defend our positions.
"Round 1: Pro: Rules
Con: Presentation & Acknowledging, often reluctantly, the position you are defending"
So therefore, there is a major change for that.
Round 1: Pro: Rules
Round 2: Pro: Presentation & Implication
Con: Presentation & Implication
Round 3: Pro: Rebuttals
Round 4: Pro: Arguments & Conclusion
Con: Arguments & Conclusion
So, abortion is deliberate and intentional termination of a human fetus (An unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception), most often performed after 28 weeks of pregnancy.
1) (According to that mediocre (But not too vague) definition) The human fetus is already alive. There, it would be considered "murder".
When you assasinate the president, massacre a whole family, etc. you will be convicted, and death penalty (Possibly) will be imposed on you.
I eagerly await further arguments. Otherwise, I thank my opponent for accepting this long-awaited, secular, particular debate.
Unfortunately, my opponent's arguments fail because he/she imposes upon me an extreme example of murder. First of all, the President is the "Number One man in the Nation." KiIlling him would obviously send me to a long sentence of prison or death. However, murders happen every day and not so many people are sentenced to death.
You giving that example is the same as trying to counter an argument in such a way as "Killing a rat is legal, therefore killing the Endangered African Rhino should be legal."
Life is defined as "the existence of an *individual* human being or animal."
Since a fetus is not independent as it relies on it's mother to internally feed it and keep it in a decent state, you could not "kill" it; it would be like trying to kill a rock.
Please reply soon; this is an interesting topic and I would like to read your views.
A human fetus definitely isn't independent, as it relies on its mother to internally and consistently feed it and keep it in a decent state. It wouldn't be considered "murder" and illegal, as it is consented for it to be intentionally and deliberately terminated.
"Another person consented for the termination. Therefore, the human fetus did not anticipate it. Therefore, it is still unconsencial kill"
It definitely belongs to the mother's stomach. But nonetheless, according to its definition (A fetus /G2;fiH0;təs/, also spelled foetus, f"tus, faetus, or f"tus, is a developing mammal or other viviparous vertebrate after the embryonic stage and before birth), it is "someone else".
It doesn't matter who or what consents to the termination. What matters is, as i stated in my previous argument, that it's not possible to kill a fetus as it is not possible to kill a rock; the fetus is not "living." A rock doesn't know if it's about to be "terminated." So it won't matter if the fetus does.
In addition, to counter your definition, note that the fetus can't live, develop, or do anything else mentioned in the definiton.
P.S. The pls dont judge statement still applies here.
