To start, tell me why you are for abortion?

I support people being able to get abortions because people should have the freedom to choose what they do with there bodies.

so you are saying that people should have freedom to do what they want with their bodies by murdering a human? I know that you are going to say that "it" is not a human it's not born yet, but if you look at a sonogram you can see and hear a heart beat. the last time I checked that meant life. babies have rights just as you and I do.

I can't personally give you one reason why I'm for abortion. Im 17 years old and even if your're a drug addict or homeless, that's not a reason to kill/murder an innocent child. That's like having the child until he/she is 2 and because you don't want them or live isn't good you kill them. It's not right and in my opinion people shouldn't have sex if they don't want kids. You shouldn't be surprised nor shocked if you're active and get pregnant. It's on YOU!!!!!!!! keep em closed if you don't want to open them 9 months later.

Although, in all honesty, it wouldn't be so much worse if clarity was valued a little more and being right was valued a little less. Often times, the real debates end up with no clarity and both debaters blasting away in righteous ire.

Fail on both sides.

Though I suspect Nate's response will be lengthier.
