Killing babies is wrong.

Killing babies IS wrong. However since a baby is defined as an infant that has gone through the process of birth and abortion is all about terminating the fetus BEFORE birth, this has nothing to do with abortion. Use your words correctly, or people get confused.

Killing babies is wrong because they are innocent human lives. They have not done anything wrong really. I'm surprised that most of the people on here is going with disagreeing side and saying it's okay to kill babies. Wow, such a shame that people are siding on that issue. Makes me want to question their morals, on why they would say that killing babies is alright.

Why is it wrong to take an innocent human life?

Human life is precious that's why it's wrong to take an innocent human's life. Plus they never did anything wrong so why do they deserve to die in the first place?

Side: Agree

Well said. I support a baby's right to choose. .

Did God kill babies during the flood? Did God condemn all babies to die because Adam and Eve ate a fruit? Did God order killing babies of tribes rival to the Jews and for living in a town that believes in another God?

Remember, it was Eve who ate the fruit, not Adam. Clearly it is because women are inferior, why else would they have to be made from Adam's rib?

Unless of course one believes in the story of Lilith.

The bombings in Germany and Japan during WWII likely killed a lot of babies - should we not have done it?

Side: Agree

Thank you for this debate. You are a good debater, so it is an honor that you care about this issue. I believe that killing babies is wrong unless the mother has an ectopic pregnancy.

So under some instances it's okay to kill babies? Wouldn't that mean killing babies is not inherently wrong.

I'm just using logic, from the very argument you just made.

Side: Disagree

It is okay to kill the baby if the pregnancy is ectopic, because that is the only time that the pregnancy would kill the mother. Otherwise, they can deliver the baby and let nature take it's course.

Killing babies ("The term infant is typically applied to young children between the ages of 1 month and 12 months; however, definitions may vary between birth and 1 year of age, or even between birth and 2 years of age. A newborn is an infant who is only hours, days, or up to a few weeks old. In medical contexts, newborn or neonate (from Latin, neonatus, newborn) refers to an infant in the first 28 days after birth;[1] the term applies to premature infants, postmature infants, and full term infants. Before birth, the term fetus is used.") is wrong.

Ha, good distinction. Do you mean that it is wrong subjectively or objectively?

Side: Agree

Morally, it is objectively wrong, as it causes suffering.

Is killing YOU wrong? Ok…would you like it if you were killed when you were a baby? That would have been ok. Right? Seriously? Think about it.

Side: Agree

if you were a mother wouldn't you want your baby to grow up and have a normal and fun life.you got to so why can't they.they can have a life and if you kill them there is no point to life so don't kill babies for a lot of reasons

Why do people use they argument it's the woman's choice . Does being comfortable really take precedence over life . For those of you familiar with Edgar Allan Poe , in one of his stories a man murdered someone because that man made him uncomfortable . I have no right to kill someone because they make me uncomfortable .

Please, killing babies is the same as killing a twenty year old. God sees them both as humans, except that babies are more helpless. Who knows, one of them could've grown up to be the next president. This undermines my argument, but women have a choice too, so back off haters.

Side: Agree

Born.. Alive.. babies? Yes. Fetuses? No.

I'm looking at all the arguments for "Disagree" and they all seem to be a joke...

I like dead children, but on the other hand I don't like giving women a choice. So I don't know, this is a huge dilemma for me.

I know what you mean, and face a similar dillema myself. I thought maybe we could skip over optional abortion and mandatory abortion and just start shooting pregnant women. We still get to kill unborn babies, and the women don't get to have a choice either. Everyone important wins :D

We have to be careful not to murder all of them though. God must have given them to us for a reason you know.

How do you define wrong? If you're a Theist you would decide that God decides whether or not thigns are good or not. however, even theists must accept the Euthyphro Dilema. Are things good because God wishes them to be, or are morals and ethics separate of God?

Well, God would not truly be omnipotent if he did not have control over things like morals and ethics, and thus also not truly omniscient. However, if God decided whether something is wrong or not, and he decided infanticide was morally good. Would it then be? Of course it would. But according to an independent set of moral rules, it might not. And if God were to decide whether things were good or not, then this embraces his benevolent attribute- namely that he is all loving/caring. Everything he would do would be in our interests, whether we realised it or not.

So, Killing babies may appear wrong, but maybe it is right and we are in fact all being deluded. Either way we cannot know.

Well, unless you're an atheist, then it's simple ;)
