Pro

if you ask me, denying life without consent in any way is murder.
SJM

Con

1. Why is this in the economics category?

2. You make this point on the premise that they are human. Why do you consider the fetus to be human?

the reason why i believe this is because it will develop into a human. (not that it is)
SJM

Con

Murder= killing something living

Pro conceded that it's not living

Therefore it's not murder.

Something not living that will develop into something living, is the moment not living, therefore it's not murder. This is like saying it's murder to stab sperm because it will one day meet an egg and conceive.

i guess you did technically answer the question of whether abortion is murder or not, but that still doesn't prove that abortion is 100% okay.

there are two reasons why i'm still not convinced.
1.) my first argument. (if you take away someones's right to be born whithout consent, then you are therefore killing them.)
2.) and the fact that it is an incomplete offspring of a human being.

"i guess you did technically answer the question of whether abortion is murder or not" That's a concession to the debate therefore I win.

"but that still doesn't prove that abortion is 100% okay." This is not what the resolution is about. I'm not here to debate something I didn't sign up for.

Woah, are you objectifying me? Me saying you're sexy was merely a test to see if you were a promoter of rape culture.

Reasons for voting decision: Because the instigator practically just gave up and claimed that their opponent won. Plus the opponent said why abortion wasn't murder.
