Abortion is a woman's debate, not one for men.

This isnt my opinion. I just want to know what you all think.

I agree because the woman's body is affected by pregnancy, not the man's. Women have the right to choose.

All is true, but still, there is no reason for men not to have a say :L If a man thinks he has something useful to say why not put it forth? Besides, most men will say " You can't ban abortion, because it is the woman's choice, you don't have the right to say what she can do." I can tell you this is pretty much what I said in most of my debates!

The men has the right to his opinion, but it is the woman's choice.

Side: Agree

Specifically the woman wanting, or trying to get the abortion. I think it's less of a debate for women and more of an option. Anti-abortion and pro-life women should have the right to not have to have an abortion but they should not have the right to press that belief on the women who do want one or need one.

"Anti-abortion and pro-life women should have the right to not have to have an abortion but they should not have the right to press that belief on the women who do want one or need one."

Do those women have the right to defend the rights of children in the womb or is that a choice you would rather they not have?

Everyone has the right to defend whatever they want, but I don't see how one woman getting an abortion is a problem for another woman. It's not like the act of ending that life will cause her's to end.

I completely agree. .

Side: Agree

Males do not have to carry the baby. If a male is in a relationship where he wants a baby but she (the female) does not, they should be able to compromise. If they can't, then it's an unhealthy relationship. Ultimately, it is the woman who will be risking and giving the most for a child, so it should be her decision.

Side: Agree

A man has no say in the issue. This is strictly a woman's decision.

Arguments don't have penises.

Every argument that I use can just as well be proposed by a woman.

It's the woman's body and she should choose what to do with it but the man of the relationship should have a say too as it would be his future child as well as hers.

For better or worse I can assure you that the abortion laws were drafted by men being that politicians are usually male. Therefore it has been a male issue to decide.

Quite frankly if a woman was aborting a fetus beyond the point where it is legal I'd call the police. Issues of child protection are issues for society as a whole not just the person who feels they have possession over the child or fetus.

Debate is for everyone. The choice of whether to abort or not however, is a choice for the woman

It takes two to make a baby. Why should men be excluded from the decision making process. It is their child as well.

Father's have a right to keep the mother's of their children from murdering them with their bodies.

Side: Disagree

A woman should NOT have 100% control over a debate where her decision will affect a man's life for 18 years.

Here is what women are trying to tell us.

1. It's my body so... I should be allowed to decide if I want to put my body through that for 9 months or not.

2. However, if I decide NOT to abort..., I should be allowed to decide if I want to put the man's financial future through that for 18 years or not.

Women are not interested in what's fair. ;)

Side: Disagree

Men invented debating. Men made the rules of it. Men were the first debaters.

Debating is a man's sport.

Women have the child. Women were first to get pregnant. Pregnancy is a womens topic. Same logic. Do you have any actual reason as to why men take part in it?

Women are always asking for equal rights. If you want equal rights, learn to start sharing!

Debating is a man's sport, regardless of what's being debated. If women invent an activity I would say they have full access to it.

How do men take part in pregnancy? Are you really that out of it. We take part in it by providing the sperm. That gives us a major say in the issue since it is our child as well.

Crazy me....

I actually thought the first amendment gave all of us equal rights to discuss all of the issues - regardless of who is affect more or less by our decisions.

I do like the idea of only gun owners having the right to debate gun issues though....

Hmmmm.

We were all children in the womb too... and men could be fathers and want to protect their children.

So,...

It may be the woman's pregnancy and the woman's body, but it also affects the man, so for that reason, it shouldn't be 100% the woman's choice.

Who said it should be a women's debate? Men can be in it too!

Side: Disagree

Abortion affects everyone. It should not just be limited to one gender or another. Both sides should be able to speak their minds on the matter at hand.

No.

Here is why, if it is purely the choice of the woman whether to keep a child or not, then men shouldn't be responsible for child support. That isn't fair.

If a woman can kill the child or keep it, as a choice, men shouldn't be responsible for child support if they have no say.

If woman do not have a say, and it is illegal to kill children, then men are responsible for child support.

If the man promised to support the baby as it was conceived or during the pregnancy, then it is the man's responsibility to support it.

If the man has responsibility due to an abortion occurring or not, then they should have a say. If they do not, then they should be freed of all consequences.

However, if the woman does not want the baby then it is her choice. If a man does not want the baby, then he shouldn't have to pay child support unless he promised her this in order to have sex with her.

It's the parents' choice, so its unfair to exclude the father.

Men are also involved I am pro-life but if I thought abortion should be legal I would talk about both men and women being involved.

Many women get abortions because they are not ready to be mothers but when a father is not ready to be a dad the woman doesn't even give a shit!

And lets not forget the unborn child I think the abortion debate is more about the unborn child than anyone else.
