Abortion. Right Or Wrong?
Debate Rounds (3)
*This doesn't include the serious health reasons*
I apologize; I should've been more clearer from the start.
You state that abortion is wrong/immoral because it is the killing of a child, so I have no need to prove that in this debate. However, you state that it should still be legal, and still be a choice. I disagree with this, and thus I will start my argument from here.
Time for definitions (though their rather obvious):
: the whole system or set of rules made by the government of a town, state, country, etc.
: a particular kind of law
: a rule made by the government of a town, state, country, etc.
Fine. And what is the purpose of the law? There are many, but one is to protect our human rights.
Refer to these links as proof:
One of our rights is the right to life. You acknowledge abortion as killing a child, a violation of human rights. Thus, how can we legalize something that attacks the very thing the law is supposed to protect?
I don't think the state should decide whether the fetus is 'person'. In fact, the fetus is not protected because the fetus has not yet been born, and thus is not a citizen. It's not a matter of whether or not the fetus is alive, or is a 'person' (science has proven that), but about being a citizen of the United States. This is absurd of coarse, because why is the fact that the baby is in the mother or outside change whether killing it is legal or not? I simply do understand.
