Thursday debate: Should the United States ban partial-birth abortion?

"Yes. Abortion is stopping a beating heart. It must be illegal, unless there is a valid excuse." - Sultan Al-Yahya is a junior in Kogod.

"Yes in most cases, but this shouldn't lead to a complete ban on women's right to choose." - Chris Carter is a freshman in SPA.

"I believe that partial-birth abortion should be banned unless there are severe medical threats during the pregnancy." - Edwina Walker is a junior in SIS.

"If a woman wanted an abortion, she should have done it during her first trimester." - Shaleah Patzer is a freshman in SIS.
