Debate Rounds (3)
I accept. Please present your argument for why "elective abortions are immoral".
My opponent has taken an absolute stance by stating "Elective abortions are immoral" which on the face of it heavily implies "all elective abortions". If I can point to at least a plausibly common situation where elective abortions are not immoral, then the vote should go to me.
"If they are unable to or uninterested in having a child of their own at that point in their life they should be having protected sex or practicing abstinence. The baby should not be prevented from living their life because of their parents poor decision making."
Many, if not most, of abortions are a result of failed contraceptives, not failure to use contraceptives. The parents, in these cases, have not made any poor decisions. Also, about 1 percent of all abortions are due to rape. Was it a poor decision on the part of the victim to be raped, NPerez? Maybe you should do counseling.
"In addition, if the parents truly believe that they are unable to take care of their child there are alternatives."
In some cases, the stress the fetus places on the mother's blood pressure and health in the third trimester is too much and would result in the death of the mother and fetus. In cases like these, it is clearly not immoral to save the life of the mother at the cost of the fetus which wouldn't have survived anyway.
NPerez forfeited this round.
Extend all that stuff I just said, yo.
