Debate Round No. 1

Pro

A human being begins life at conception. (1) (2) This means that both an embryo and a fetus are human beings. Abortion terminates a pregnancy by ending the life of the embryo or fetus. (2) I've established that both an embryo and fetus are human beings, so abortion is ending the life of a human being. This human being is far from any accepted age of responsibility, so it is innocent.

That is why I contend abortion is the killing of an innocent human being.

Respond there if you wish since I don't visit this site much anymore so a reply here would be a waste of time.

Apologies PrincessNene; I meant to label the third citations as 3 instead of 2. My mistake.

Reasons for voting decision: Con never argued anything. S&G to Pro, because Con made a few minute errors, but errors none the less. Sources to Pro because, well, he was the only one who used sources.
