Should Abortion be illegal?
Debate Rounds (4)
Let me give you some real life decisions in my own family. My aunt made some not so good decisions and had a kid at 17 years old, but instead of having an abortion she gave her up for adoption. Then she had my cousin and decided to raise him since she was a couple years older and done with High school. Well my cousin lived sort of a rough life, meanwhile his unknown adopted sister was raised by a wealthy family in a nice neighborhood by a couple who couldn't have kids of their own. Another family example I have is someone close to me was taken advantage of (raped) and resulted in a child. She of course raised the child and he never knew what had happened. I sure either of these people (the children) would be devastated if they knew their mothers contemplated aborting them.
Just because these people "government" make something a law, doesn't mean that it's morally right. Is it right that Obama drone strikes people half way around the world, and because of "collateral damage" kills several dozen innocent women and children in the process? But it's legal right?
By killing babies, you're taking that choice away from the human the right to LIVE!! What if you're mother aborted (killed) you while in her womb? Wouldn't that be taking away YOUR CHOICE to live?
If someone commits suicide, or goes on a dangerous mission risking their lives, its THEIR OWN CHOICE to put THEIR LIFE on the line. But who are you to decide to take the life of an innocent human being for your own convenience?
I always here females say "Well, it's my body". However they're killing the "BODY" of another "HUMAN BEING". That's not their body.
So now I ask you, (WHO IS REALLY TAKING THE CHOICE AWAY FROM THE INDIVIDUAL)?
I can't believe we even think it's acceptable to make the decisions of killing an innocent human being for the sake of convenience. Having been in two tours of combat, and seeing lots of death and destruction, killing is something that I'm definitely not in favor of.
Unfortunately, it is something we have to deal with in today's society. We should make our best efforts in educating people that the baby can feel, and that abortions are (killing) another human. Also, I think its good to show how great and successful adoptions can be. My aunt's daughter, after 30 years, just reached out to my cousin (her brother) and she's now becoming part of their lives. She had a great childhood, and even though it was really tough for my aunt to do that, she knew in her heart that it was the right thing to do and she's glad & thankful she did put her up for adoption. I hope I get to meet her when I visit the family this summer. We as a society have generally changed our minds about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We can very well change our minds about abortion too.
Say "YES" to Life!!!

Reasons for voting decision: Overall a moral debate. Both sides argued over morals and that complicates voting a little bit. Just to be clear, I'm pro choice, but that's not going to stop me from voting fairly. Conduct: Both had overall good conduct. There was some questionable choices from Pro though. Spelling and Grammar: Noticed some minor spelling mistakes in Con's arguments. Arguments: Pro wins this. His arguments were solid and Con did not do enough to to disprove them. Pro's arguments still stand at the end and Con has next to no arguments. Sources: Neither utilized sources (to my knowledge).
