This is a debate designed to limit the amount of words used to debate. You must use your words wisely and no cussing. Let's have some fun and let us begin! :)

I accept.

I would like to clarify I consider a fetus that has not taken its own breath, formed a coherent thought not human unless if any parent, two grandparents, two uncles/aunts, or a brother/sister related to the unborn, acknowledges the fetus as human being. Provided that the fetus has formed a functioning nervous system, brain, and heart. E.g. a baby can kick at the 2nd trimester.

If you consider a fertilized egg is human then we cannot settle this argument we should agree to disagree.

The fertilized egg (zygote) is a human. Con's stance on a fetus not taking its own breath and forming a coherent thought is valid ,but those reasons do not support why it's not a human because science clearly dictates that the zygote has human DNA. Con's argument where fetus must be acknowledged by relatives to be considered a human being is morally wrong and is clearly an unsupported opinion. Abortion is wrong because:
-a human dies
-93%=social reasons
-Constitution/Hippocratic Oath is rejected

With your logic of every fertilized egg being a human. Most attempts to procreate almost a murder, and that no one should have sex at all. Furthermore we must name Failed Conceptions as the number one cause of mortality rate.

Generally less than 70% of zygotes will even implant into the mother's womb causing pregnancy. From there, there is a 25-50% chance of aborting before you even know you are pregnant. However, you make it to your first month, your odds go up to 75%

Pro

Spontaneous abortion is the loss of pregnancy from natural causes. Abortion is the procedure carried out by humans to terminate a pregnancy and can be prevented. Con's claim is similar to saying the elderly are going to die naturally anyway, so why not kill them. The point for ending abortion is to guarantee that life is respected. Con's claim is completely valid but don't support the legalization of abortion and is confusing; also, there is no rebuttals and con uses "you" when I'm actually male
