i would like a rhetorical debate. i am actually against this. but, i want someone who is for partial birth abortion but say they are against this to debate me.

what's the difference between an inch in and an inch out of the mother? i say, it's a techincal difference, so the doctor should just kill it right then outside of the womb.

or if we want to add some level of respectiviblity, assuming putting the baby back in and then killing it wouldn't count as to respectability..... we can just transport teh baby to a killing room made and sanctified for that sort of purpose.
or, we could wait a few days or weeks if the baby is viable until a govenor gives the okay, and then kill it.

it's all the same difference.

My argument is against your position that "infants born alive by accident during partial birth should be murdered"

I believe that all murder is wrong, as well as illegal. By definition, there is absolutely no plausible reason as to why we should allow murder to occur, infant or not.

Con

My opponent isn't responding...

I'll repeat my argument:

My opponent suggests that infants born alive by accident during PBA should be murdered. I am narrowing the scope to my opponent's notion that murder should be performed.

I argue that based on the definition of murder, an unjustified and purposeful ending of innocent human life, should not ever be performed. Just by its definition.

Nothing much to add. It's pretty much my opponent's job to prove something.

The only argument my opponent makes is something along the lines of "one inch inside, one inch outside". I don't quite understand it.

Murder is wrong and illegal one inch inside, one inch outside, right in the middle, above, below, between, through, beyond, to the left, to the right, in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, etc.

By definition, murder is unjustified and wrong. My opponent cannot win. Vote me, night night.

I would argue against this by saying that murder is illegal.
