I am trying to see the argument of the other side. Here are two arguments for abortion.

The reason abortion should be legal is because it reduces crime. Because there are less people in the world because of abortion, There are less people to commit crimes. Thus, Crime rates go down.

My second argument is that abortion is constitutional.

Con

"Because there are less people in the world because of abortion, There are less people to commit crimes. Thus, Crime rates go down. "

Well here's an idea. How about we just kill everyone then there won't be any crime at all. It's the same logic you used

Christianity has only implied the second contention, That a fetus is a person. I am afraid that you may have been fed false information by far left media outlets and sources. The only issue I have seen between myself and fellow Christians is that fetuses are being mistreated and murdered for the benefits of their mothers, Solely on the contention that a fetus is a person (give evidence against the person-hood of a fetus and you have debunked the Pro-Life movement :) )

Furthermore, I fail to see whether the gender of the interlocutors will make any difference in the arguments for the positions.

Thought experiment: Which is stronger?

Set 1
David: "Women should be able to do what they want with their bodies"
Antavius: "True, But the fetus is not a part of the woman's body, It is a separate entity"

Set 2
Bethany: "Women should be able to do what they want with their bodies"
Sequoia: "True, But the fetus is not a part of the woman's body, It is a separate entity"

Argument: neither is stronger and both sets have equal merit due to the fact that the strength and content of the arguments is identical.

After Roe v. Wade the birth rate only fell by about 5% but conception rose 30%. Abortion seems to being used as a form or birth control. The vast majority of abortions are committed due to failure of birth control or not using it at all.

If you take away abortion the birth rate will not change that much. People will adjust to the new climate and be more careful with their sexual activity.

Denizenkate,
Pregnancy Abortion is an issue In America because it is an admission of guilt that is described as only an accusation to the public. Religion in some ways started the practice though the idea of blaming them for its persistence is not right as it can also be described as a many other things, Good and bad. The issue that an unregulated admission of guilt creates in the public is related to all people by self-incrimination to the knowledge of a crime. This part of the issue then links a united state to the civil right to vote.

"the reason abortion should be legal is because it reduces crime". I suppose we could get rid of the entire criminal code. Argument: making killing people legal, Would reduce the crime of killing people. Insane.

Neither of these two people seem at all qualified to debate this topic. Women have been aborting unwanted pregnancies probably since before any recorded histories. The only reason this is a wedge issue in America is because organized religion, Primarily Christianity, Has decided to make it an issue. Their reasons seem to be 1) women should not be allowed to make their own decisions about their own bodies, And 2) a fetus is a human being with a soul, Therefore abortion is murder.

Perhaps this debate would have more merit if the debaters were women. When men can get pregnant, Only then will their opinions on this issue have merit.

As usual jackiebaby thinks with his forked tongue and barfs out a Donald Trump tuxedo dinner party excuse. Though I do know that Pro's/ Adrian14's literacy skills are that of a yodeling Buddhist monk from yesteryear, And dare I say it, Jackiebaby's heart is in the correct place for this specific debate only, Even though what he stated is totally incorrect even to him. "How about we just kill everyone then there won't be any crime at all. It's the same logic you used. " Well his god did in fact kill everyone in the imaginary great flood that never took place. Also during this make believe flood his god committed abortions and thus killed innocent pregnant women unless jackiebaby believes that there were no pregnant women at this time of the make believe flood? So that's the same logic jackiebaby used on two counts. Yep. He's being 100% contradictory and hypocritical. So let's unravel it and make up a complementary statement. . . "How about we just kill off just a few people, Like a couple million per year, Oh say 20 million, Due to famine/ starvation/ hungar/, War, Genocide, Disease, Etc then there would be some crime. " It's the same logic jackiebaby would like to use because he thinks he can get away with it. Of course its not a complementary statement at all. In fact its quite insanity at its finest as is according to jackiebaby's bible.
