I will be arguing against abortion. Abortion is so cruel and should be illegal!
thedebatekid

Pro

I accept this debate. I rightfully dont care about abortion and see reason in both pro-life and pro-choice.
I believe first round to be acceptance, second for main arguments, last for rebuttals and final focus. I will be fighting pro-choice in this debate. Please give it your best shot.

Ill make this short and sweet as I expect this to be a forfeit debate.

Definitions:
Fetus- an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind
Woman- an adult female person
Abortion- the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus
Life- the period from birth to death

Main Argument- A woman should have control over her own body.

By the constitution all are created equal. Women have rights. One of those rights is to control ones being.
A rebuttal argument might say that the fetus is its own being, this in fact is not true. To be ones own being you must not completely rely on another beings energy. Without the mother the fetus would die. Therefore the fetus is not its own entity but just an extension of the mother. If this is true then the mother should have the right to extinguish this extension of herself.

How would you feel about debating a fellow pro-lifer who wants to play devil's advocate and defend the pro-choice view? It might help to shorten the debate by one round, too. If you have too many rounds, people won't want to vote.
