Should abortion be allowed in the United States?
Debate Rounds (3)
Although the main argument for pro-lifers are about murdering the child, that child has not yet been born. It has no conscious thought, no memories developed, and by the time the procedure is given, the baby is not even a third of the way through its cycle in the mother's uterus. The fetus has no human functions as of yet, therefore should not be considered a person. Therefore, when you pro-life supporters call it murder, remember what we are exactly murdering. Something that cannot even produce thought or body motion, with absolutely no consciousness.
Now time to bring up the most popular pro-choice argument: circumstance. There are so many different circumstances and situations that account for pregnancies (ex.: rape, unreliable protection, lack of financial means) with uncontrollable factors that we cannot simply turn every one away, nor give some abortions and refuse to give others. You try to tell a rape victim that she's going to have his baby because it's morally right.
2. the heart beat starts after two weeks of the baby starting to form, something with a heart beat is alive.
3. There's also a question I would like to ask you, If a baby was supposed to be aborted? then why should we get pregnant in the first place? Why would a women get pregnant if it was not supposed to happen? Pregnancy is supposed to happen, its apart of nature and is the only way we continue as a species, so go ahead and say that babies should be aloud to be aborted, but just let me put this thought in your head, what if your mother wanted to get an abortion? oh but it wouldn't matter because you have no concept of it happening yet and you wouldn't have been alive.
