Hello, and welcome, good luck.

First I would like to make note of the fact that God's opinion on birth control is completely assumed, and unless you can prove what he thinks that argument is useless.

I also think that you need to look at the broad spectrum of birth control, not just pills and abortion, but other options, mainly condoms.

Abstinence-only programs don't work, they never have and never will, so assuming that teens will stop having sex is foolish, it has been tried, and failed, and although I agree that underage sex is bad, it is a fact of life, and either you can allow condoms and stop some of the repercussions of teen sex, or not allow any birth control and give teenagers no option but to deal with the STDs and babies.

Due to lack of a case from the CON I have no further arguments.

I sure hope this isn't really for school because if it is I have a feeling you won't get a good grade for forfeiting the second round, I stand firm on my arguments.

Can I accept this? You said it was for school, so I don't know if you already have an opponent that hasn't accepted or not.
