Reasons for voting decision: PRO is actually on the CON side of this debate which I?ll ignore for the sake of arguments. Both sides made assertions with no data to affirm their points, which makes for a rather weak debate. PRO contends that BC should only be available to women of an age when good choices can be made. Teens are out for a good time, fall to peer pressure and become distracted; BC should not be made available to them. CON contends it is better for teens to use BC than not, for prevention purposes due to inevitability of sex and to offset abortions and abandonment of babies. PRO makes a rebuttal on a point not made by CON regarding cost. CON stated in R1 that if one can afford to pay, the option should be made available. Debate to CON due for stronger rebuttals points on prevention and inevitability of teen sex. Tied S&G & Conduct, there were no obvious issues with language; appropriate tone of respect was exhibited by both sides. Tied sources, neither used any.
