I would like to thank whoever accepts this debate.
Of course, human-rights should be respected, but it is never the case that a person has a right to make a decision with no reference to the rights and wishes of others. In this case, one might wonder about the rights of the father to have a say in the fate of the foetus. More importantly, though, pro-choice groups actively ignore the most important right – the child's right to life. What is more important than life? All other rights, including the mother's right to choice, surely stem from a prior right to life; if you have no right to any life, then how do you have a right to an autonomous one? The woman may ordinarily have a reasonable right to control her own body, but this does not confer on her the entirely separate (and insupportable) right to decide whether another human lives or dies. I don't care how you put it that is murder. If she gets raped it can go to an orphanage. What do you think is better not living or being and orphan.

My opponent's entire argument is directly copied from here: http://www.idebate.org...

Since he claims that unborn babies have a right to life, I'll expect him to explain how a being that:
1) Can't think for itself
2) Can't live by itself
constitutes a human.

Anyways, I enjoy arguing the opposite side as to what I agree. It either makes you question whether you're right or reaffirms your beliefs.

Cool.

Unfortunately, it's beginning to look like I won't have that option.

I certainly disagree with abortion. I'm play devil's advocate here.

Weird position for Nails to take. look at his profile.
Due to Cons history he must think this will be an easy win.
