This debate is in reference to the fertilization verus birth debate as to when life begins. Pro means agreement, and con means disagreement. My opponant will make the first argument.

Con

I believe that they are both valid points, it's a serious point of concern it's a valid dichotomy, they meet all criteria, opposites, controversial, etc.

This debate is about whether the fertilization versus birth debate preesents a false dichotomy, not whether you think they are good ideas. Some people believe that life begins at fertilization, implantation, gastrulation, when the fetus has brainwaves, when the baby is born, when the baby can survive, and so on. There are a lot of different views as to when life begins. Fertilization and birth are not the only available views.

I don't understand the context of the debates phrasing. My position on this topic is that human life begins with implantation. If you'd. be interested in debating this let me know.
