Warm greetings and welcomes to anyone viewing this. This will be an open debate and the first member to accept my challenge will become my opponent. Please only take this if you are confident you'll have enough time to post in each round. I'd like to aviod any and all FF's for this debate.

Terms, Rules, and Definitions:

Defintion of r*pe (From Merriam Webster dicionary):

"Unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usually of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent"

http://www.merriam-webster.com...



Abortion shall be defined as the:

"The termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus"

This definiton was found on the same webstie as before...

http://www.merriam-webster.com...;

My BOP is to show abortion should be legal in the case of a r*pe. My opponent shall argue that it is not OK in *any* scenario. (No exceptions, always illegal)

There will be 4 rounds. After round 1, we are both entitled to use as many charecters as we'd like. (As long as you don't go over the 10,000 limit of course)Members voting on this debate are required to provide comments and quality RFD's for their vote. If you're one of the members who take 5 seconds to vote, (Exagerating a bit of course) then please don't vote on this for the sake of a valid winner being decided for this debate.

First round is for acceptence of the rules and terms. The last round is for a conclusion. (Whatever length you'd like for the conclusion. No new evidence or arguments though please. Rebuttals frowned upon at that point of the debate as well)

Good Luck to the person who accepts this debate!

Shat, did I post that 3 times? But anyways, women have the right to if they want to carry that baby or not. If she can't financially support it, or isn't able to give it proper care she shouldn't have to keep it. Foster homes are way to packed and often foster children get depression and increased risk of suicide.

You put a asterisk through rape, why not put one through abortion too...

But to be honest, If people actually saw what abortion looked like they would probably no longer deem it to be a civilized approach to getting rid of unwanted babies...

Yeah. It's basically "Abortion should be illegal in all cases" With me being Con, and arguing that r*pe can serve as a valid exception. I'm still split on regular abortion though.

I believe abortion should be legal not just for rape. I would debate you but you clearly defined that the opponent should want abortion to be illegal no matter what.
