This is my first debate and I'm going to start kicking the door. What is your opinion about abortion in the case of an anencephalic fetus. A pseudo-human creature can be considered a real human, not only has a human body, but a mind, which has complex feelings, that can modify the world around it, which has high purposes. Can you even consider a human anencephalon as a real human?
For me these anencephalons are simply aberrations.


I do believe that a woman has a choice to abort her baby if she wants to, but I want to become a stronger debater so I'll do this.

Although having neural disabilities, fetus ,or person in general, Anencephaly isn't considered a false or pseudo-human. Calling the fetus a 'pseudo-human creature' is dehumanizing.

Medical abortions are only permitted up to the ninth weeks of pregnancy (sometimes ten). A detailed ultrasound usually isn't given until around 18-20 weeks. With that being said, it would be hard to know if the fetus has a neural tube defect before the abortion takes place.
