Should abortion be legal in all 50 states of the U.S? (Before the nervous system is fully developed)
Debate Rounds (4)
For the first clarify that you understand your position. Then there will be 3 rounds to argue or give rebuttals as you see fit. If you are using any specific fact from any source cite the source at some point.
Keep in mind two things this debate excludes abortions after the nervous system is finished developing and where the baby is able to feel pain. Also I am not pro abortion, I am pro choice, pretty much no one is pro people being encouraged to get an abortion.
So firstly, I believe women have a right to get an abortion if they decide to simply because they have the right to. In the US people have the right to do anything they please, as long as it does not directly take away other people's rights.
Abortion does not actively take away the rights of any people. So in a secular nation, if a woman does not want to endure the 9 month birth process and have to go through a birth then they should not be forced to.
The thing with abortion after the nervous system is pretty much fully finished developing is that at that point it really is a human being, as in, they can feel, they have a working brain, they can move. However when the nervous system is not finished developing it is not a human simply because they have no thoughts, no feelings, they have an immunity to pain, so aborting the fetus before they have these qualities is not murder.
I believe that females have a right as a human being to not go through the birth process and abort the fetus, because there is not enough reason to take this right from them in a secular nation where you have a right to do anything that does not take away the rights of anyone else.
