If homosexuals really are born that way, we should work out a way to kill them at birth.

First round is for acceptance.

I accept your debate.

As Pro specified, first round is for acceptance so I won't put any argument forward yet.

Baus forfeited the previous round so I will put my first argument forward. However I am not expecting an answer as Baus' account has been closed.

Killing is wrong. I think that's a basic enough reason why we shouldn't kill babies.

Secondly, killing all homosexuals would be genocide: "the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group." (1) Genocide, throughout history has been heavily punished. by legal standards, klling babies is not a good idea.

Furthermore, you cannot, today, know who is homosexual and who isn't. Indeed, we have not yet found which gene makes us gay or not. If Pro has some super advanced researches at hand, I would not mind seeing them. Therefore we would have to kill babies we think are gay. That would be totally absurd.

However, we have found that the more boys a women has, the more chances there are one of her younger sons will be gay. Does that mean that women would have to live in fear for her child until her child is born?

People would not accept that. 55% of Americans favour gay marriage. Nearly eight in ten yound adults favour gay marriage. Just imagine how people would react to it. Young adults would be the first to react on the streets. (2)

Lastly, in this debate at least, homosexuality is not wrong. I could even tell you how the Bible doesn't say that homosexuality is wrong. But that is the subject of another debate.

To the voters, I would havemore developped my arguments, but seeing as I won't have any response, I won't bother extending mine.

Just posting to avoid forfeiture as, as I said previously, I won't argument further as Pro won't be able to respond.

I hope everyone's having a good enough week.

Also wanted to point out that Pro's video in the first round has no connection with the subject.

Have a nice day.

Hmm, genetic manipulation could be used to alter their gender selection as embryos.
That would be more useful.
That is if they can find the gay gene, if it even exists????

Actually in itself, most world religions don't have such extreme views on homosexuality... (Although I don't even agree with their POV either) You know the thought is not sinful in itself but the act makes it sinful and stuff...
