Reasons for voting decision: Both sides were civil so the conduct vote is tied. Con provided more reliable sources whereas Pro used "dad (doctor)" as a source so sources go to Con. Con also wins SG because Pro had multiple SG errors and did not capitalize the first word at the beginning of each sentence. Arguments go to Pro for making the only arguments i.e. not to vote because this wasn't a debate. Con never refuted his points and completely conceded even agreeing with Pro to not vote. Clear Pro win on arguments.
