Reasons for voting decision: Pro's case just never gets contested. Despite all the basic facts that a) they know the side effects and b) that the only person affected by those side effects is the person taking them, I never get that analysis from Con. If Con had just argued that it's not a government's responsibility to protect people from themselves, Pro's case may well have been defeated here. Instead, Con goes with analysis that really doesn't lead to any demonstrable impact. I would have liked to see some of the harms of abortion (which many of these people would engage in), and more analysis regarding what forcing a child on a young mother does to her life and livelihood, but without that analysis, his case just comes off weakly. Hence, I vote Pro.
