Abortion laws are strict as it is only going to the under aged, drug addicts and victims of rape. Abortion is completely acceptable personally in these occasions and technically you are not killing anybody. A fetus doesn't have a conscious util even a month after birth and abortions tend to happen with in 7- 10 weeks of a pregnancy meaning the fetus is not developed and in that case not technically alive or even a baby. The fetus wont feel pain from it for it did not know of it's existence and the life it would have been brought into would most likely not be beneficial for the baby living with addicts, under aged parents or somebody who is obviously not going to take care of it.

I accept your challenge young lady but know this, I extremely disagree with your logic. yes we live in a time when rape and under aged sex is on the rise and the porn industry is paying highly. but what we must realize is that by constantly shouting to "end abortions" and "they dont feel pain their not living" we do not see the real issue

The issue that i speak of is safe, respectful sex. if you realize that people view sex as a form of entertainment, pleasure and a way to destress you can see the true source of it. abortion is wrong but to defeat it you must realize that it is the minds that need to be "killed" as in re educated are those who believe in rape and sex for money.

And to debate your point on how the Fetus does not feel anything let me tell you a story. Back in 1985 there once was a woman in the south pacific who was to have a child but the doctors found that this child may kill the mother, and the doctors found this out when he was a developing fetus. so the woman ignored the doctors and had the child. years later that child grew up to become Tim Teboy.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro ff so conduct to Con. Pro brought up many arguments that were dropped by Con, or not properly rebutted. Pro says that the fetus isn't alive, doesn't feel pain, and beneficial because it wont have to grow up with inadequate care. Con's response was irrelevent (sex as entertainment and personal stories). Thus since Pro's arguments are unrefuted, arguments to Pro.
