Great, another forfeiter.


As someone who has debated abortion before, I will put a link to my original abortion debate right here:


http://www.debate.org...


I will be using arguments that I used from that debate here, so if you have any questions about my argument, simply read my original arguments.


(1)


First of all, I would like to define an abortion.


“Abortion is the termination ofpregnancy by the removal or expulsion from theuterus of afetus orembryo beforeviability. An abortion can occur spontaneously, in which case it is often called amiscarriage, or it can be purposelyinduced. The term abortion most commonly refers to the induced abortion of a human pregnancy. After viability, the relevant procedure is referred to as a ‘late termination of pregnancy’ Modern medicine utilizes medications and surgical procedures for induced abortion.”

From Wikipedia


Great. Now that we all know what abortion is, I would like to bring up that Abortion is a right in many countries.


Almost every country in the world have abortion that is legal to a degree. Often countries allow abortions only in special cases, like rape, fetal defects and maternal health. Only 6 countries refuse to give abortions under any circumstance. However, many countries allow abortions for any reason.


“The landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade, decided on Jan. 22, 1973 in favor of abortion rights, remains the law of the land. The 7-2 decision stated that the Constitution gives ‘a guarantee of certain areas or zones of privacy,’ and that ‘This right of privacy... is broad enough to encompass a woman's decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.’ ”


Abortion in many countries is considered a civil right and taking away a right is not a good thing. Why? Simple. Discrimination.


Anti-Abortion laws discriminate against rape-victims. Not only is it unfair to the mother but it is also unfair to the child. Imagine growing up with a mother who didn’t want you. This would be very bad.


Any ways, I have to wrap things up.

Thanks


DDD.

Reasons for voting decision: A full forfeit from Con and a waste of Pro's time. Conduct and arguments for the forfeits and the lack of response to Pro's case. As to sources, I don't normally award sources for just one source, but given Con's conduct and complete lack of response, I think it's justified here. Similarly, Con doesn't get credit for S&G when he provided, basically, none whatsoever. If he'd had at least something in R1 I probably wouldn't be docking these points, but given the full-forfeit nature and the complete lack of participation, I give a good deal of deference to the debater who showed up. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
