Depends on the exact reason, If you are doing it for no reason, than it can be considered morally wrong, but what if the woman was gonna die!? What if there was a medical reason!? What if the child is a result of the woman being raped or the child dieing once it comes out. Think about it, what if YOUR mother became pregant but due to medical reasons, the Doctor would inform you that both your Mom and the child WILL die upon the childs birth, Your mom trys to get an abortion, but tough luck! Abortion is illegall. In that case, the government would be the murder. Stuff like this has happened, about a year or so ago a woman in Ireland was gonna die once the child was born, the doctor informed her that the baby would also have birth defects. She tried to get an abortion, but she was told "Sorry, this is a Cathloic country." and died. That, is real murderer. Though I do agree, if you get an abortion for no legit reason. You are killing an uborn child.

There are some things there that I agree with you it. I think that an abortion is wrong when its just done by immaturity take for example if there was a boyfriend and girlfriend and they willingly did it and they conseave. Although they did not mean to conceive, they had and that is where I feel it be very wrong to have an abortion. However, if it is a life or death situation or the lady was raped then I could see an abortion because that is understandable.

Exactly, As con, my argument is not all abortion is bad, but Immauturity and aborting a baby for no reason should be illegal. And possibly a life sentence, but medical and rape reasons for abortion are reasonable, and it must be noted that women who have abortions for medical or rape reasons, have second thoughts and feel that they are killing an uborn child. They normally tend to regret it for the rest of thier lives, the thing is, they don't want to do it. But they must... they are normally shamed by the extremely religious post-abortion. they aquire Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS)

Reasons for voting decision: Pro conceded to Con in Round 2, when she admitted that there are instances when she actually condones abortion. Thus Pro's arguments are void, point must go to Con.
