Is abortion ok? (should it be legal?)
Debate Rounds (3)
I accept your debate
Keeping this very simple. I will argue why abortion is okay and why this justification should make it legal.
Good luck. Meow.
1971 - The Supreme Court agrees to hear the case filed by Norma McCorvey, known in court documents as Jane ROE, against Henry WADE, the district attorney of Dallas County from 1951 to 1987, who enforced a Texas law that prohibited abortion, except to save a woman's life.
OK. So in 1971 abortion is illegal unless it is to save the woman's life.
January 22, 1973 - The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 7-2 decision, affirms the legality of a woman's "right" to have an abortion.
June 17, 2003 - Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe) files a motion with the U.S. District Court in Dallas to have the case overturned and asks the court to consider new evidence that abortion hurts women. Included are 1,000 affidavits from women who say they regret their abortions.
At this point not even the defendant agrees with the ruling.
When Roe vs. Wade was passed in 1973 we hadn't invented the 3D sonogram. It was believed that it was just a blob, not human yet.
I thank my opponent for posting his argument on this topic,
As I mentioned earlier, my stance will revolve around why it is justified for a woman to willingly want to abort during pregnancy, I will state my facts below and I will then leave it to Con to respond accordingly. Now, I shall present my brief case.
Now, in most parts of Europe, Asia, and North America, abortion is legal on all grounds and is open upon request.  These countries have advocated for it for many reasons, but one of the most important being the concern over not just from the possibility of death, but also from rape or disabilityy. Taking an example from the US, statistics show that 42% of women that opt for having abortions have relatively low incomes, which leaves them unable to bring up their child and in rape cases, leaves the child unwanted.

Technology has debunked all the propaganda used to get it passed and make it seem acceptable.
Also, it's not about a female's right.
A) what about the rights of the females being aborted?
B) the govt. tells a woman what she can or cannot do with her body all the time. Consider prostitution and drug laws.
I will try to cover as many points as I can,
First of all, stating that it was 'Murder for the sake of convience' is simply too patronizing to what I was trying to convey, abortion is an essential requirement for those who cannot afford to bring up their children, as I mentioned with the poverty issue, and women themselves do not ask to be 'raped', and they are forced to concieve a child that they were probably aware that from the start they couldn't bring up. Con has put forward the claim that the 1% abortion statistic for rape as trivial. However, my points do link together, 16% of abortions are made because the woman's life would have been changed too much, this also includes cases of rape.
In response to the last points -
A) Abortion is a choice based on the interests/needs of the female. The 'Right to Privacy' supports this.
B) If anything, prostitution and drug laws should complement abortion, as there is little chance a child can be brought up properly if a prostitute gets pregnant.
