I believe that, barring extraneous circumstances (such as health), women who declare they do not want children should find it mandatory to take birth control (specifically of an implant-type) if they wish to be sexually active. The mandatory length of commitment is 1-year and is reevaluated annually.

I believe this would greatly reduce accidental pregnancy.


1) Unconstitutional
Telling women that they are forced to take birth control if they wish to be sexually active (without having children) is a violation of the ninth amendment, which refers to the rights retained the people.

2) In addition to being a violation of the ninth amendment, the Pro's arguments are a violation of the first amendment.
Debate Round No. 1


9th Amendment:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

Con has to justify how this applies at all considering the history of the Amendment ( relating to basic rights that cannot be infringed upon. Mind you that "Right to Bodily Integrity" is not one of these rights.

1st Amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

I'm not even going to guess. (
