It is a womans power of her own body.
Even though you do not agree with it does not meen you should put others down.
It is not fun walking into a clinic to begin with.
If the woman does not want the child to be in her then it is her right to get rid of it.
You should not be forced upon to keep a child you do not want.
People says its their fualt that they are pregnant; it is not always true.
I know some one whos mom was on birth control and his father was useing a condom but yet he was born.
It should not be put on personal beliefs to say it is wrong or right.
Even if you band abortion , people are still going to do it.
Kepping it legal will make sure that they are safe while getting rid of it.
It should be done in the first trimester instead of later while the child starts to feel things.
If you are going to say no to abortions than fine but no matter what there is going to be abortions, but legalizeing it would make it safer instead of having woman doing it them selv in their own house with hangers and such.

my first question to the AFF is which country do you live in because where i live it is legal to have abortions

The Frame-Work will be the first 2 speeches will be constructive(make new arguements) and the last speech will be a rebuttal(no new arguments)

First i would like to start off to say sex is never an accident "i walked by her in the hall and our hands touched and she got pregnant" that would be a accident. when you commit to sex you must accept the consequents. now that we agree with that lets go to the next artical.

The Word of God forbids murder - by abortion or any other means - because God created man in His own image.

Sacred biblical truth proclaims to us unceasingly that God is the Author and Giver of human life, and therefore no creature has a right to intentionally dispose of, nor destroy such a complex Divine creation. In Gen. 9:6 we read, "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man." Though we have lost the image of God in its narrower sense entirely through our deep fall in Adam, wider remnants of God's image still cling to us after the fall - including our very soul-body personhood. In spite of our fall, we still receive our life from God in a special manner. In a peculiar manner we receive the breath or life of our souls directly from God (Gen. 2:7), making us more than plants or animals. job confessed, "The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life."

>>Even if you band abortion , people are still going to do it.
Kepping it legal will make sure that they are safe while getting rid of it.

First of all this is not true at all, the only people that really get abortions are 16-22 year old who are afraid of getting illegal abortion. scientist have proved that the 'coat hanger is no more than a myth a legend and have no proof of it ever happening

This is where the debate gets kritical

-When you subject the womens whom to kill innocent baby's whats the next step killing alive babies because they are retarted? because they're missing an arm? because they have BROWN EYES? where does it end? The Affirmative gives us the Pre-Racist view on life by supporting the acclimation of abortion, it is this act that caused hitler to start the holocaust it is this act that will cause another one.

>>If the woman does not want the child to be in her then it is her right to get rid of it.

This argument should not be looked at first because first if a women has every right to her body shouldn't she be able to kill herself or inject herself with drugs?

I rest my case vote negative.

I agree with those below me, I vote for nobody. Neither of them could spell (or use spell check properly) and they used horrible arguments. Also, neither one of them continued with the debate.

Mjg -- Obviously Pro isn't from the US. So you're little "Um" in an attempt to make the instigator look stupid failed terribly :P

And! I completely agree with Scyrone.

I vote no one. PRO made more sense in the debate to be honest. CON used sources which are unproven and not credible (the Bible) and then used a false analogy for abortion "sex being an accident". In a way it can be an accident. A woman who is raped? Of course, you can counter that it was her fault she was born to be raped (her mom should have gotten an abortion first).

And with CON knowingly being active he decided not to post in the debate. I don't vote for anyone, because they are both terrible debaters.

"I know some one who's mom was on birth control and his father was using a condom but yet he was born." But of course you cant' blame them they were only engaging intercourse. Let me guess it was the birth control and condom companies fault.

i am completely for womens rights to choose, but the way you argue has to be a little more convincing, more professional, and spelled right.
