Abortion should be considered a right
Debate Rounds (3)
1. Blackstone, William. Commentaries on the Laws of England. Clarendon Press.
Now as that is cleared up, let us focus on individual liberty. Before that, we must define the term 'individual'. As of today, no clear definition is available for the term, as it is still a grey area (especially in our current topic). For instance, the 'Born-alive Rule' states that a fetus is not considered an individual until it is born alive, that is, it can exist independently without the mother. Hence it can be argued that as an unborn fetus has no individuality, it has no individual rights. It all comes down to the de facto rights of the mother against the debatable rights of the fetus, at which point it becomes clear that abortion must indeed be a right of a woman.
Finally, I would like to point out an irony. Your argument is that as my argument contains a fallacy, it is false - and by default yours is true. This itself is a fallacy, and proves nothing with regard to the topic.
2. Edward Coke, First Part of the Institutes on the Laws of England
3. "Until you resolve those fallacies and build an argument without them, you can't have much of a debate."
You again make a false claim on your last paragraph. I NEVER said that because you are wrong that it makes me right. You have imagined that argument. What I said is that you make arguments that are logically fallacious. Until you stop appealing to pity and using the slippery slope you can not justify abortion. Find logically sound arguments then begin to debate.

Reasons for voting decision: I agree that pro used too many analogies and fallacies. In general, I was disappointed with the lack of facts, especially from Con.
