Debate Round No. 1
Glitter2998

Con

Do you agree that abortion is murder?
fire_wings

Pro

I do not agree that abortion is murder.

Arguments

1. The Fetus is not alive


The Fetus is not alive. The fetus cannot respire on it's own, and cannot sense. The fetus cannot reproduce, or take in nutrition. Because they cannot do these things that a human being does, and to become a human being, you need these. However, a fetus does not have sense yet, cannot respire on it's own, cannot reproduce, and cannot get nutrition by it's own.

2. Liberty

The mom's have the liberty of choice of what to do to their son/ daughter. The children are from the parents, and the parents are allowed to do anything to their own children. There is liberty of the parents choice. [1]

This isn't even a debate, the Instigator did not back anything up with facts.

Well I'm now convinced abortion should be implemented as soon as possible, starting with pro and con.

Pros arguments for abortion are probably the most disturbing reasons I have ever heard.

Scratch that. Still, worth defining terms and good luck to both sides.

Are we only talking late term abortions here? Life of the mother or such? Or just all abortions? Also is first round only for acceptance?

Reasons for voting decision: Both Pro and Con provide arguments so I assume that the BOP is split. Con's arguments rest on bare assertions whilst Pro's is sourced and therefore bares weight. As well as this, Con's arguments are clearly based on subjectivism and are negated due to the fact that abortion cannot be murder if the fetus is not alive (as Pro demonstrated). Con makes no attempt at a rebuttal whilst Pro's arguments show opposing views to con which not only negates his arguments but this negation also works in his favour and affirms the resolution. Due to the lack of rebuttal on Con's behalf I give arguments to Pro.

Reasons for voting decision: Con makes a bunch of fact less assertions and stating " I hate people sometimes" seems to be an indirect attack on Pro. Con also hurts his/her case by not responding to Pro's rebuttal.

Reasons for voting decision: Con states that fetus is alive. Pro gives examples of how it is not alive and this point if refuted. Pro states that mom has the right to body and this point goes unrefuted. Con says "I hate you" to pro and therefore pro gets conduct.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro makes valid points in the liberty and "fetus isn't alive" contentions. He shows that a mother has liberty to do what she wants with her body, and that technically, since a fetus isn't alive it doesn't really have rights. Con failed to refute any of these so Pro wins.
