Round 1 is for stating claims, round 2 and 3 are for arguments, 4 is for final statements. I think abortion should not be legal.

I am happy to affirm the idea that abortion should be legal..I await the Con's arguments and look forward to an interesting and well-reasoned debate.

That is really unfortunate. This could have been an excellent and interesting debate. But in this realm, when the CON forfeits the first constructive, there is nothing to be done but vote for the PRO.

1) The CON is not fulfilling the burden of proof. Therefore, there is no reason to vote with the CON.
2) No prima facie case means that the CON has nothing to build a case upon to fulfill the burden of proof.

Even if my opponent decides to try and debate this in the further rounds, do not allow it. The debate is over. Vote PRO!

(A side note: in this case, the Con does have the burden of proof because in matters of policy, abortion is a legal procedure in the status quo. Thus, the side proposing a change to the status quo, the CON, must fulfill the burden of proof.)

My opponent has forfeited two rounds in a row. Please vote for the Pro. This should be a fairly straightforward vote.
