This debate will be set upon the lines of philosophy, and not on facts. Also, I would like all voters to make their decision on weather or not I won the debate, and not on previously placed ideals. I would like the first round to be where my opponent accept the debate, I wish youremyb**** good luck, despite his user name.

should be legal on certain grounds. for instance if a woman is raped or a child is brought up in an unloved family life throug a one night stand, its likely to suffer. also if the child is to be damien or the devil's son shouldnt it be better to rid the bastard off the earth?
Debate Round No. 1

rebuttal 1:
You argued that if a girl is raped then that should be legal grounds to justify an abortion, however this argument is seriously flawed. First off, any pregnant girl can say that she was raped, and the government will have no way to disprove it, in a sense making all abortions legal, which you disagree with, as you said.

I do not know what you mean by,"a child is brought up in an unloved family life throug a one night stand, its likely to suffer." This sentence just plain makes no sense.

You also said," if the child is to be damien or the devil's son shouldnt it be better to rid the bastard off the earth?" This makes no sense, even if you are talking about the child in the mother. This would still lack sense because the only way to tell if a child is the "devils son" is to wait until they are born, nullifying the whole process of abortion.

Argument 1:
My first argument is on the basis that abortion should not be legal because, no matter how you look at it, it is still killing. Even though the baby may not yet have a conscious, which we have no way to disprove, it will develop one. This argument does not have any sources, because it does not need one. The proof is yourself, you have a conscious. The whole fact that you are either reading this, or arguing against me, is proof enough.
