Before I give my arguments, I'd like to lay out some ground rules. Accepting this debate is accepting my terms of this debate. Because my rules may not be perfect, I will allow the first round to be a chance for my opponent to challenge my rules. No arguments are to be given during this round. Only the ground rules and changes relating to those ground rules. As I feel that none of these rules are unreasonable, I will have the final say as to whether they stand as the debate goes into round two....

My argument is simple: (1) A fetus, or embryo, is an individual human being (2) Abortion kills this innocent human being. (3) Abortion should be banned.

1. The United States Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 1 states, "no state shall… deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Not offering equal protection to gays under marriage laws is unconstitutional. 2. The Declaration of Independence said "all men are created equal." And on the front of the Supreme Court building the words are etched in "Equal Justice Under Law." Equality is a basic American principle that should be respected. 3. The Ameri...
