Getting pregnant is a personal choice, therefore abortion is a personal issue. If a female wants to change her mind about birthing another human, then so be it-especially if the circumstances aren't fair.
Mr_Khan

So, smartone, if I read your stance on this issue correctly, you are for making Abortion illegal? Yet you say it is a choice of the woman and saying the consequences? Well first off, I am not a woman just to make that clear, anyway, it is always up to the woman and ultimately up to the woman. It is her body, even if a man and woman agree on having a baby it is still her body and her hormones, her protein, everything in her is hers alone. Baby's are actually blood related to the woman through the umbilical cord, so in that thought, men have no control whatsoever. If a female choses to have an abortion it is her right as a female. Now having it after the 3rd trimester is bad, due to the fact it not only purges a human life, it also leaves not only physical scaring, but emotional scaring as well for the woman.

I believe abortion should not be illegal for the simple fact that her body is hers alone, no one can tell her to or not to have an abortion. . .

Sorry, you must have misunderstood me. I believe that abortion should NOT be illegal. It is the choice of the pregnant woman. I am glad that you agree.
Mr_Khan

Con

I think you should have seen that when you started the debate it means you are against something. how are people going to vote on this when both agree? there is nothing to debate.

I must have clicked on pro be accident. But anyway, how do we end it. Do I have to forfeit, do they have to vote, or what?
Mr_Khan

Con

Well you could forfeit or make a stance i suppose? But it seems redundant to keep the debate open if we both agree.

you shouldn't say getting pregnant is a personal choice, you should say it is a personal choice to have sex. that would be more correct.

someone should have stepped up and taken the anti-abortion side. Does it hurt to be so narrow minded?

this makes no sense. how can you title it "making abortion illegal" and be in favor of it, but then your argument sound like you are pro-choice?

What?! So, affirming that abortion should be illegal, you say that it's the woman's choice?!

This topic is terribly named, I must say. It's a bit confusing.
