Thank you in advance for accepting, Con.As Pro, I shall be arguing that abortion should be illegal with no exceptions. Abortion shall be defined in this debate as "a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus."[1]The first round will be for acceptance. Trolling and insults will result in a full seven-point loss.Sources1. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion

Hey you! Yes you - reading this. You are a racist! Oh, yes you are, and if you don't like being called a racist, sue me and I'll take you for every penny you've got (provided I win this debate which will form part of my legal argument, so please vote for me folks otherwise I'll be bankrupted).

To illustrate my point, pleas...

Protecting Animal Rights

dollydo
xxdarkxx

Animal rights is ethically justified, in the fact that it's basic principle lies in the foundations of the value of life. If you believe that animal rights is unjustified then you also have to believe that human rights is unjustified. What makes someone care about another persons life? What makes me care about your life? Why are murderers sentenced to prison? Society as a whole puts value on life...and those that do not value life (like the murderers) are removed from society, and made to suffer...
