Hello, I'm just a 13 year old kid who just like to debate.
So the argument is abortion should be legal because people can choose to have a kid or not, and forcing them can suffer the child and the parent. Making it illegal will make women who want to abort go to dangerous place that can harm them and possibly kill them. Unborn baby only feel pain at 20 weeks and most of these abortion is when the women life is in danger.

"Abortion should be legal because people can choose to have a kid or not, and forcing them can suffer the child and the parent"
So, your first argument is that not giving people the right to choose if a being lives or dies will make them suffer, but I'd argue it's the other way around, if anything. After an abortion, a woman might end up ridden with a lifetime of guilt, and, even if the woman isn't capable of raising a child, or the child may cause her to remember past trauma, there are options other than deciding to just kill them, such as putting them up for adoption. Abortion is selfish. It's the easy way out for people who don't want to deal with the consequences of their actions, even when there are other options, and it's murder.

"Making it illegal will make women who want to abort go to dangerous place that can harm them and possibly kill them."
Your next argument is that if you don't give the women the abortion, they'll go to some strange and mysterious place and possibly get hurt. I want you to think for a moment. If you had a child that you didn't want, and an abortion wasn't available, would you really go get it done in some dark dingy alley or whatever scene you have pictured that could get the woman hurt? I can't help but question if places like what you're describing even exist, and if they do, I really can't help but question if this is some major problem. You haven't shown much evidence to back it up, anyway.

"Unborn baby only feel pain at 20 weeks and most of these abortion is when the women life is in danger."
Firstly, cite your sources. You have literally nothing to back up this claim period. But let's assume you're right, just for the sake of argument. Even if this was true, it doesn't change the fact that it's murder. Murder is killing another human being. Are you trying to claim that the baby in the womb is not human? If so, what makes it not human? Is it its age? In that case, premature babies should be able to be murdered. Is it the fact that it needs to be physically attached to the mother? Then what about people who are dependent on technology to live, are they not human because they require resources from a machine? They're not part of the machine just because they're attached to it, and the same applies to a fetus. Is it its location in the womb? In that case, you could put any person in a womb and claim that it's not human and that killing it should be legal. And consider things like premature babies again. Let's say for the sake of argument that you had a premature child at 19 weeks (I'm not sure if this is possible, but it's just a hypothetical example). Is killing the newly born premature child murder? Of course it is. So, your argument is that because the child is attached to a tube in the mother's womb, it's not human, and killing it isn't murder, and the second you remove it from the womb, killing it is murder.
Do you see how insane that sounds? Do you see how little sense that makes?

Overall, even a pro-abortion person could probably see that your arguments are simply bad. You cite no sources, you back up nothing, you can't even use proper grammar in a formal debate... No offense, but you should honestly get a bit better at debating before hopping onto the internet and trying to tell all those darned Christians how stupid they are.

John_C, your English is too broken to understand. I have no clue what you're going on about.

Possibly.......

Can you explain how anything can be official stopped if it not seen as officially started?
Is the united State created by pregnancy abortion an admission to crime?
Are men, woman, and children justifying a crime constantly on behalf of this statement?

This sets pregnancy abortion as a self-incrimination that is transferable to the general public. Abortion in relationship to pregnancy is that confessed crime, not accused crime. Female Specific Amputation is a confession which could have been made public that does not lead all woman to confess to murder.

John_C, I think you might have the wrong definition of abortion.

Really ZsidePolygon there is a 13 year old describing that all woman should be able to self-incriminate themselves, and all other woman young and old alike into a felony crime, and the best you can come up with is to grade her debate as the first introduction?
You do understand abortion is the confession to the crime, not an accusation?
