Abortion - the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. [1]

Round One - Opening Statements from Con
Round Two - Rebuttals from Pro, Defense from Con
Round Three - Opening Statements from Pro, Rebuttals from Con
Round Four - Defense from Pro, Con Must Waive

Rules:
1) No trolls
2) No slander/hate speech
3) No forfeiture
4) No kritkiks
5) Please use citations
6) No new arguments in final round

Voting Rules:
1) Vote for Convincing Arguments
2) Only vote for conduct if plagiarism and/or forfeiture is present
3) Only vote spelling/grammar if it's distracting enough to detract from arguments

Thank you

I'm going to make this simple: Killing a fetus is killing a human being, which denies it the life it could have. It is wrong for exactly the same reason murder is wrong.

I await your rebuttal.

I've noticed a theme on this site.

When you bring up the fact that you're ending a human life, people often do not respond.

I pray they are self-reflecting.

While it does seem short and unproven, I can assure you that any objection would be disproven immediately.

The burden of proof is on Pro, so is it actually necessary for me to post my own arguments?
