abortion is not legal murder.
Debate Rounds (3)
Right, let's begin.
In my views abortion is legal murder, life begins at fertilization when the sperm meets the egg. Something, a baby, is created there, NOT an embryo.
Statistics have shown that the baby (keep in mind that is what I will call the created thing from the moment of conception) feels pain within 20 weeks. If you abort the baby, it will feel pain, it will know a little what is happening
You are killing human life, and it makes me sick. Abortion kills a innocent baby, don't make the child suffer for something that you did. The child can be given up for adoption and not murdered, torn to pieces.
This is not a embryo or a fetus this is a baby and I blatantly say that anyone who says otherwise is wrong.
It IS murder, and we are no better than ISIS if we terminate innocent human lives.
I rest my case for round 1, thank you for the debate.
If you are going to say that an abortion make someone no better than a member of ISIS or ISIL then you are putting down anyone who has ever had an abortion even for the correct reasons. It is not right to bring a child into a world where they will not be loved, catered for. if a child is a product of a rape it is not worth the traumatising pain for a mother to endure and have as a constant reminder of he torment. if a child will be born with horrible defects that will dramatically lower their chance of survival or the quality of their life is is worse to have them rather than abort them.
An abortion can not be painful to a child as at the stage of development they can legally be aborted at they are a very simple organism that cannot feel pain or trauma it is incapable of knowledge around subjects such as this, for instance can you find anyone that can tell you what their life was like before they were born, then I would except the possibility of gathering knowledge but no-one has ever made this feat.
ISIS or ISIL do not take what they believe are innocent lives they deem westerners as heathens that deserve death. however if you want to bring this into a biblical battle I will love to turn you in circles over the misconceptions of the bible but that is up to you to decide. I look forward to your content and good debate.
I will now post Round II
Keep this in mind, there are many people that would want to adopt a child and accept them just as they are. If you do an abortion that chance is taken away.
Also, if you abort, you need to think carefully beforehand, because you may abort someone who could grow up to be a future Steve Jobs or even a president, you never know.
Thirdly, I want to bring this into the arguments because this is personal to me. My cousin Matthew Alex has many disabilities, it is hard for him to walk, speak, and eat among other things. My Aunt was told to have an abortion, they said he would not live to see his 5th birthday. My Aunt refused, and Matthew Alex became a miracle from God. He is now 9 years old and may still have defects, but he is energetic, bright, tall, and walking and smiling.
Finally, I bring this in, I am autistic. Suppose I was marked for abortion, imagine the deep pain someone would feel if they wanted to adopt me in the future.
In conclusion, I urge you to think on these stories respectfully :) and thank you for the debate :).
You say that we should consider the possibility of a child growing up to be a future Steve Jobs but this is not a considerable argument to say that you should not choose to have an abortion that would be the right choice for the situation, to turn this point on its head you could say that abortions could have stopped people like Hitler, Joseph fritzl and many other terrible people but this is a completely ridiculous point to put forward as these are circumstances that we cannot know and therefore they can have no diction on the choice of a potential mother.
When you talk about the possibility of an adoptive parent and that chance being taken away I turn you towards the fact that there are many more possible children to adopt than there are people adopting for if the numbers were the same if not more parents than kids then there would be no more children who are looking for adoptive parents.
Finally and completely off topic I would like to take the time to thank you for your content, and you debate I have enjoyed this as my first debate on this website so thank you for all of your content in making this a very good looking debate with points that have been explained well for others to look upon so once again I say thank you
