Rules

1. First round for acceptance only.

2. No plagiarism; In other words, do not copy someone else's work and claim it as your own.

3. I am arguing in favor of the resolution that abortion indeed, should be legal.

4. You may only troll when things get out of hand.

Failure to follow these rules will result in a 7-point forfeiture.

I thank my opponent for accepting this debate.

Presentation

Politically, a fetus is not alive. Personhood. It is not legally liable (It is not legally bound and obliged to pay debts), it doesn't have responsibilities (It does not take care of something and hold accountability for it/Take responsibility for something), and it doesn't have limits (Limits on action). However, biologically, it is. Life is merely the existence of an organism. Abortion is unlawful, thus murder. However, how is it supposed to consent to it? Remember that it is unconscious : unaware of its own existence or its surroundings : and that it is under development; in abortion, you simply end that process.
