People carrying babies should definitely have the option to abort. Their decision isn't hurting anyone, since the fetus being aborted is given pain medication, along with the person carrying the fetus. In some cases, it would be better to abort the child than have it live in bad conditions, or have its life risked during birth. If you don't agree with abortion, then you can choose not to abort your baby. Abortion is a good option in some cases, and everyone should have the right to their body!!!


First of I just want to make things clear so you don't post lies it is NOT your body. Your body does not have two
blood types,two hearts two brains. You do not have four arms,legs or eyes. This is not your choice you can't just kill a baby because its convenient to you. It is not a human right because that human baby has no rights. you can't just kill because you decide that your convenience is more important than an actual human life.
Debate Round No. 1


Actually, the fetus being aborted isn't classified as a person. It doesn't have a brain, nervous system, immune system, et cetera. If you DID have the power to ask it, it wouldn't answer because it doesn't understand the question; it doesn't have a brain. It isn't a person. The person that does have power over the nonliving fetus should be able to make the choice, because there is no one else to make the choice. After all, isn't it the parent's responsibility to make decision for their kids??


Earlier when you said the fetus isn't classified as a person why did you say before that that the fetus is given pain medication what's the point of giving it medication if its not classified as a person?

When is it okay in your mind to abort a baby?
a) Two weeks we start forming our own Dna
b) Within sixteen days we start forming our neural plate (foundation for our brain and spinal cord)
c) Six to seven weeks we start forming our forebrain,midbrain and hindbrain

All well before 24 weeks.

Are you going to respond?

Pro, are you for abortion in any stage or is there a cut off date? But at the very least the fetus is a human life and living (something that is not living can not grow). I would be careful stating that "it the parent's responsibility to make decisions for their kids?" Usually this is for the kids best interest, so do you think that: 1) A parent can kill or harm their kid outside of the womb because they can make decisions for them or 2) The foetus is a kid only smaller and less developed and not in the right location yet to be valuable.

Based on your criteria: size of a human, level of development, environment, degree of dependency are all determinants of being valuable. At the very least you think value is in the eye of the beholder, in other words someone else can determine the value of another human?

The baby develops its own dna within 2 weeks.
In 6 weeks, the baby has its own spinal cord, brain, and eyes.
