Abortion is totally gay, and should be illegal. I'm not a homophobe, but this is ridiculous.

Con

Okay, I will take this debate. Let me put some definitions to be used in this debate (if you have a problem with any of them, we can sort it out in the comments):

Abortion: the induced termination of a pregnancy before birth
Point of viability: the point at which a fetus could live outside of the womb on its own
Miscarriage: an accidental termination of pregnancy, which could be due to a variety of causes

I am assuming the first round of this debate is for acceptance, so I'll allow you to post your arguments next round. I will respond to them next round.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

I thank my opponent for accepting this debate. First of all, I will explain why abortion is totally gay.

Abortion is the termination of pregnancy. That is gay.

Secondly, I will explain why abortion should be illegal having that it is gay.

If abortion stays legal, then people would be brainwashed to think that it is not gay; abortion is gay, and that will stay as it is.

Con

Okay. I feel it would be acceptable to define "gay" as "something attributed to homosexuals".

Now, under this definition, abortion would not be gay. Here is my logic:
P1: "Gay" indicates of pertains to a sexual attraction to those of the same sex.
P2: In order to get an abortion, one must be pregnant.
P3: In order to be pregnant, one must have sex with someone of the opposite sex, which goes against P1.
C: Therefore, abortion is not gay.

Now, while some lesbian couples have used donated sperm to become pregnant, it is highly unlikely that they would have an abortion unless it threatened their life, since they completely volunteered to get pregnant in the first place. Therefore, a truly "gay" abortion is highly unlikely to occur.

I await my opponent's response.

Reasons for voting decision: Persuasion because Pro never tried to make his case, and he conceded. Conduct because Pro used offensive language.

Reasons for voting decision: Koon had awful arguments. Being gay is not a reason to make something illegal. In order to have an abortion he cannot be gay. And koon forfeited
