Con

Nearly all abortions take place in the first trimester, when a fetus cannot exist independent of the mother. As it is attached by the placenta and umbilical cord, its health is dependent on her health, and cannot be regarded as a separate entity as it cannot exist outside her womb.

The concept of personhood is different from the concept of human life. Human life occurs at conception, but fertilized eggs used for in vitro fertilization are also human lives and those not implanted are routinely thrown away. Is this murder, and if not, then how is abortion murder?

Con

Adoption is a viable alternative to abortion and accomplishes the same result. And with 1.5 million American families wanting to adopt a child, there is no such thing as an unwanted child.

Con

Abortion should not be used as another form of contraception.
Theothermichael

Pro

Reasons for voting decision: Only con provided arguments and due to the fact that Pro had the burden of proof that ultimately means that Con wins by default since his BOP cannot be met without arguments being provided on his behalf.
