    These are some pretty crappy arguments tbh.

    Pro's argument is begging the question. He says that a parent should be able to decide for themselves what a fetus is. That's nonsense. What a family decides the fetus is has no bearing on what the fetus actually is. If a family decides their 2 year old kid is not human do they then get to kill it? The fetus either is human or it isn't. What the parent wants to call it has 0 impact on what the fetus is or is not.

    And Con's argument is even worse. He never says what abortion is, or why he thinks it's bad. He just assumes abortion is bad. Then later he says that Planned Parenthood should exist, but that it should be privately funded. Well that contradicts his arguments that abortion is murder, and it doesn't actually negate the resolution. If Planned Parenthood should exist, then he's not showing how abortion must be illegal and that it is wrong. The closest he gets to proving his point is when he says he's seen pictures of aborted fetuses and it's disgusting, but then he says it's ridiculous that SJW's tell him the fetus is a clump of cells. That's not an argument. He needs to provide warrants for how we know that the fetus is human, and not just say an opposing claim is ridiculous if he doesn't have reasoning for how he got to that conclusion.

    If you two want to properly address this topic, you need to get to the core of the question. Is there a child in the Mother's womb? If so, prove it. If not, prove otherwise. Until you prove that, you're just skirting around the issue.

      Abortion at 9 months is okay? If yes, then I can take this on CON side
