It's wrong to tell a women she cannot wear a burqa when she chooses to.

I'd like to begin by thanking my opponent for this debate.

The presumed resolution is that it is wrong to tell a woman she cannot wear a burqa when she chooses.

I will now offer my main points.

Contention 1: The concept of a Burqa.

A burqa is a garment worn by women of an Islamic faith. It often covers everything but the wearer's eyes. This creates complete concealment of one's identity. So if we are to allow women to wear burqa's whenever they choose, then at anytime they can completely conceal their identities. I will go on to discuss the issues that arise from this in my next two contentions.

Contention 2: Identification Issues.

We must imagine a scenario where the police, government, or any other institution requires identification. In these situations a woman wearing a burqa is completely unidentifiable. If a woman is able to choose to wear a burqa whenever she wants then she would not have to take it off. This is obviously unacceptable.

Contention 3: Security Issues.

In some public places and businesses it is illegal to wear a mask. For example, a bank or an airport. These rules are established for the safety of all people involved. We cannot allow anyone to be above these rules and regulations. While the woman may be offended, it is worthwhile. We cannot sacrifice the safety of everyone in order to avoid hurting the feelings of an individual.

It is for these reasons that I respectfully ask for a Con vote. I now turn the debate over to my opponent.
