I will be arguing that abortion should be illegal.
1.) Round One is for acceptance
2.) A forfeit of concession will not be allowed
3.) All arguments and sources shall be posted in the round. If challenger does not have enough characters, send them in a outside link.
4.) Debate resolution, definitions, and rules can not be changed.
5.) Only 10 cross x questions allowed for both sides.
6.) optional must give clear road map and go in that order.
Debate Structure:
Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Presenting all arguments
Round 3: Asking cross examination questions
Round 4: Answers to cross x questions
Round 5: Rebuttals (no new arguments)
Good luck.

Con

First off I would like to thank my opponent for accepting and wish good luck.

1. Abortion is murder. The killing of an innocent human is wrong, even if the human hasn't been born.
2. Abortion is the killing of a human being which defies God. This is the 6th commandment thou shall not kill. Abortion is breaking that commandment.
3.Abortions cause psychological damage a 2008 review study showed that young woman who go abortion increase risk for depression.
4. Abortion reduces number of adoptable babies. If parents don't want them give them to an orphanage.
With that I end my post
