I know I said I would accept if the time period changed, but I changed my mind. I accept this debate. I would like to keep an even amount of rounds, so I will allow my opponent to begin in round two.

Although my opponent has forfeited this round, I will present my arguments in this round to continue the debate.

Being Pro, I take this to mean that I am for ethics. With a title as vague as "ethics," I am to assume that I am pro for the concept.

Ethics is defined as "rules of behavior based on ideas about what is morally good and bad," [1] something that the majority of the world would believe in without any thought. I believe that ethical treatment is definitely something that should be mandatory in most (if not all) cases in the world. There are already countless acts and laws regarding ethical treatment of animals, humans, etc...

Here are a few areas where ethics and ethical treatment should be in place (and most all ready have ethical standards):

- Animal Testing
- Jails
- Schools
- Nursing Homes
- Hospitals
- Workplaces

While I could go into detail for each of these, I will choose to avoid that, seeing as I don't have ample time to write (only 30 minutes per round) and only 2000 characters to type. PETA, for example, fights continuously for the ethical treatment of animals, and rarely comes across opposition (in the sense of opposing ethical treatment). [2]

In short, ethics, or ethical treatment, is undoubtedly a good thing. This would be hard to disprove, and even though I have not sourced ethical treatment for these listed scenarios, it is clear that ethics is needed.
