This debate is about a hypothetical scenario. It considers the possibility of mothers seeking abortion being kidnapped, having their children raised to term, and then having the babies taken from them such that the mothers are never depended on to raise the children. Perhaps the mothers encounter their preborns later in life or not.

After the fact, it's possible for some of these preborns to grow up to become pro-choice nonetheless. In turn, in order to uphold these people's values, they should be killed because their interpretation of rights contradicts the very method behind which they are able to live. That is if pro-choice values are indeed valid, then the mothers of these people should have had the right to prevent them from coming into the world. In turn, to correct how that right was violated, these people must not be allowed to exist.

To be clear, this debate is not about killing these people for being unappreciative of their kidnappers, nor is it about punishment for deviating from ideological conformity. For example, it's feasible for the kidnappers to not believe those they rescued and became pro-choice should not be killed, but someone else might kill them instead. On the other hand, it's also feasible for the kidnappers to kill those they rescued, but not out of spite. Instead, they just realize multiple responsibilities exist at hand.

Lastly, this debate is not about arguing whether pro-life or pro-choice positions are intrinsically correct.

what are you even talking about. you literally are going against what you are preaching to the choir. Why are you against abortion when you are for killing other human beings. I would love to have a debate with you about this.

(To be clear, this isn't about what I'm for or against. It's just a debate.)

The point is to listen to those who were previously rescued from abortion. If their pro-choice position is correct, then they shouldn't have been rescued. Killing them would correct a mistake.

why are you saying that they should be killed if they are for pro choice. It is their decision not yours. you have no idea what the circumstances may be. You are saying that abortion should be illegal and that it should not be allowed to happen, because its killing a human being and then you are saying because of someones beliefs they should be killed. I hope you have been snorting cocaine to have these thoughts because you are obviously not thinking straight.

No, it's not their decision.

It's their mothers' decisions who would have had them aborted. If their pro-choice position is correct, then they shouldn't be alive. Killing them corrects that mistake.

Please vote Pro.

I'll probably rehost this debate as well. It will be nice to debate against someone who deals with this on a more comprehensive basis.

It's a pity; this is a very intriguing debate but Con misunderstands it all...

Also, this debate really isn't meant to focus on abortion itself.

It's supposed to focus on a deeper moral issue of consequences versus intentions defining right and wrong.

For example, if someone's born after one's mother wants one to be aborted, should one choose a pro-life or pro-choice position based on the anticipated consequences of being killed or not to correct a mistake, or should one choose a pro-life or pro-choice position based on the intrinsic value therein?

I mean those who would choose to be pro-life just to avoid getting killed are rather selfish. They're not really considering what abortion is all about.
