I accept the position of Pro and I also will be more then happy to go first. This time I hope you continue the debate till the very end.

Abortion is good for three main reasons.

1. If a woman will die because of the birth of a baby, then abortion is a reasonable choice.

2. Having an abortion will reduce the stress on families who can't afford a baby.

3. Osama Bin Ladin wouldn't have been born.

++++++++++++++++++++++

Because of those 3 reasons you should vote Pro.

Thank you and I will be sure to finish my debate.

I would like to start off by quoting Mother Teresa, "By abortion the Mother does not learn to love, but kills her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, that father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. The father is likely to put other women to the same trouble. So abortion leads to more abortion." Second of all, most women who have abortions will regret murdering their innocent fetus that they have produced. Also, Terrorist have killed 3000 American since 1990, Abortionist have killed 4000 Americans since yesterday. Abortion is defiantly murder of a fetus that hasn't even had the time to sin or make its own choice in this world. What if Martin Luther King's mother had chosen to abort him? Blacks and whites might still be drinking from different water fountains. If Rosa Park's mother had chosen abortion, blacks might still ride in the back of the bus.

I am sorry to be so racial but its the truth

I AM Pro-Life

It looks like Con is refusing to debate the majority of my argument, which makes me quite sad, but being a good sport I will be more then happy to debate her arguments against Abortion.

=============

Lets begin by looking at Con's quote from Mother Teresa which says,

"By abortion the Mother does not learn to love, but kills her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, that father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. The father is likely to put other women to the same trouble. So abortion leads to more abortion."
-------------------
Really? First of all there is no proof that abortions make mothers not learn to love. As far as we know a mother could have an abortion out of love. Like if her child had no chance of living past three, where each year the child lived it would be in pain.
Second, a fetus is not a child and third if abortions were the reason men went around impregnating women, then why do all the ones paying child support to 5 different children continue to put woman in that same situation? An abortion is not going to make a man go out and have sex with another woman. The reason are a bit more complex then that.

===================================

Con says most women will regret their abortion.
----------------------------
Where did you get this information Con?

and

Regretting an abortion has nothing to do with it being bad. When a woman regrets that cake she just ate, does it mean that cake was bad? I don't think so.

=========================================

According to Con, 3000 Americans have been killed by terrorists since 1990 and 4000 Americans by abortionists since yesterday.
--------------------------------
The definition of an American citizen is, 'All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.'

Note the word BORN. A fetus is not born and therefore is not an American citizen.

===========================================

Con thinks that abortion is murder of a fetus.
----------------------------
It can't be murder because you can't kill what hasn't even been born.

===================================

Con finishes by saying if MLK's mom had an abortion, we might not have integrated sinks.
--------------------------
This is just speculation and can't be known, but what would probably happen is that someone else would have filled what would have been MLK's place.

===================================

Considering the facts going against Con, please vote PRO!

Con did not debate my first arguments and did not continue debating her arguments.

The fact that she is silent is the same as her agreeing with me.

I only hope she says something in the next round
