Pro

Resolved: Abortion is immoral.

My goal as Pro is to prove that abortion is immoral.
My opponent may try to prove that abortion is not immoral.
This debate isn't about whether abortion has or can have benefits - rather, whether it is immoral or not.

By accepting this debate, my opponent agrees to the following definitions:

Immoral: Not conforming to accepted standards of morality.

Morality: Principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.

Abortion: The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy while the fetus is still inside the body.

Kill: Cause the death of (a person, animal, or other living thing).

By accepting, my opponent also agrees that it is immoral to kill a human without just cause.

First round is acceptance only.

I look forward to a well thought-out and civil debate.

I haven't yet watched your videos, but I might have time later today.

I understand that the odds are very, very much in favor of there having been pregnant women during the Great Flood. However, I get very technical sometimes, so just give me a break in that one.

Two wrongs do not make a right.

Also, you seem to be arguing that humans have all of the same rights that God does.

@Shad0wXx - 1. "I believe..." In other words you don't know. You haven't even done any research on the great flood in which is very clear. How's about you actually doing some research on the great flood?

https://www.youtube.com... - Seth Andrews Ark Encounter HILARIOUS!

https://www.youtube.com... - How archaeology proves the great flood is false

2. Do you have any proof that anyone during the Great Flood was pregnant? Dumb christian uneducated super duper unintelligent teeny bopper question. Now you think about that question.

3. "I do not believe that it is hypocritical to be Christian and also be pro-life" there's a very big difference from being "pro life" and not understanding the struggles of what is right and wrong. A perfect example: Do you believe a 12 year old girl who was raped beaten and tortured by daddy twice per week since the age of 4, now 8 months pregnant who in no way shape or form can take care of the tiger should NOT have a LEGAL abortion? If not, then YOU with all of YOUR qualities, YOU take care of the little one.
But then again since YOUR christian god who brings in millions of children to be aborted every single year and founded abortion in the first place, you pay attention to something that is amazingly hypocritical and contradictory. YOUR god kills. Why---not---man? Indeed YOUR god in which you have no proof for even existing, plucks something out of thin air and is expected to believe it AND expects everyone else to believe it without a shred of proof.

I will excuse myself for not posting my argument. Feeling a little lazy.
Pehaps another time.

@backwardseden

1. I believe that the Great Flood did happen, and I don't consider myself dumb for doing so.

2. Do you have any proof that anyone during the Great Flood was pregnant?

3. I do not believe that it is hypocritical to be Christian and also be pro-life - quite the contrary.

@Shad0wXx - During the great flood if you are dumb enough to believe it ever happened, god would have had to have killed pregnant women. That's the first enactment of abortion IF you are religious and idiotic enough believe in god. So its a MAJOR hypocritical contradiction as christians loathe abortions in which doesn't make any sense.

@philochristos thanks.

@Draughtsperson I suppose I may have been a little to technical with that, although I don't think it'll harm the debate to specify.

@backwardseden Would you care to elaborate?

If you are religious, you do fully understand that god invented abortion - correct?

Immoral: Not conforming to accepted standards of morality.

That's basically the same thing as saying 'Immoral: not moral' - because we only ever know any thing through its accepted standards, or deliberate re-evaluations thereof.

Allow a couple of rounds for a little discussion of how to best define morality, and I'm in.

You may want to adjust your definition of abortion. By that definition, natural child birth could be considered an abortion.
