Intro
Welcome.
This is the second in the series of video debates that's become popular these days.
Here's the first one between Kasmic and Lee001: http://www.debate.org...
Due to some issues with the format on the first one, Kasmic has proposed a multi-round structure which I will be listing here. These video debates are technically still in trial form, so bear with us.

Topic
As noted above, the topic we are debating is abortion.
I will be taking pro, meaning that I will be arguing that abortion should be legal.
Kasmic will take con. He will argue that abortion should be illegal.

Structure
1st round is acceptance.
2nd round is opening arguments - Here both sides will made a video argument no longer than 5 mins and place sources in their round.
3rd round is rebuttals - Here both sides will make video rebuttals no longer than 3 mins.
4th round closing statements - Here both parties will make 2 min videos over viewing the debate and explaining why you should vote for them. No new arguments.

No texts will be allowed in the proceeding rounds besides general pleasantries, sources, and - of course - the video link.
Good luck to Kasmic. I hope he enjoys this debate.
I know I will. ^-^

Illegal abortion harmful
After Roe vs. Wade: Legalization reduced abortion deaths by 94.8%: https://www.guttmacher.org...
68000 deaths w/o access to safe, legal abortion: http://apps.who.int...

42% of women who have abortions are below the poverty level(1)
73% say simply cannot afford(2)

I did not expect that forfeit, but it means I'll not be making the last video since it is unnecessary
Thank you everyone who watched this debate and thank you Kasmic for accompanying me on my last debate here.
Bye. ^-^
