TheResistance

Con

I negate the resolved, "Abortion."
To clarify, I provide the following term.
Abortion(Merriam Webster)-a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus

Now before I begin, I understand this is a controversial topic, so I urge voters to vote without bias and only vote on the content.

C1: Abortion is claiming many lives
TFP Student Action
"Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, over 57 million unborn children have been killed, more than the entire population of Spain. That's 155 babies per hour. About 1 every 24 seconds."
Since Abortion is claiming many lives, this is bad for us because it is not morally correct to end a life. Furthermore, everyone has the right to live and have a chance in this world. Abortion immorally takes away the lives of many people, thus we must negate.
A1: Abortion is morally incorrect
Matt Slick
I believe he said it best, as explained:
"The primary reason abortion is wrong is that God said that we are not to murder. But not all people believe what God says so let's look at it from a different angle.

We are allowed to take life under the prescribed requirements of law such as self-defense, war, execution, etc. Each of these areas deals with Law. Self defense is justified because an antagonist is breaking the law (burglary, robbery, assault, etc.,), and we can use force to protect ourselves and our property. War is the legal declaration of hostilities towards another nation. Execution is the legal taking of life against someone who has committed a crime or crimes worthy of execution. In each case, the antagonists are dealt with for the wrongs they have committed.

However, the baby in the womb has done no wrong, yet it is executed. It is executed but has broken no law! What crime has been committed? What law have they broken in their existence? None. Yet they are killed."
Thus, abortion is incorrect. The baby has done nothing wrong, and yet it gets punished by getting its life taken away from him/her. Negating abortion will allow for the babies that are being aborted get their morally inherent universal life that they are deserved.

Thus, I urge a Con ballot and happily wait for my opponent's arguments.
