Pro

I believe spanking your child should be illegal.
CheeseFries

Con

Since I usually reserve Round 1 for a statement of acceptance, I will keep my opening argument short and sweet.

Spanking a child should not be illegal if it is a form of discipline. It teaches them respect and obedience, and can prevent issues such as being disobedient, back-talking to a parent, or general rudeness.
