Is abortion wrong? Some people may think yes, while others think no. But, is it wrong?
Statement of fact
It’s a scientific fact that human life begins at conception, not at birth. And that the unborn child has its own different DNA, blood type, etc.
Proof for my claim
“You are pro-life because of religious reasons!”
Strawman, and it just shows that you never investigated the pro-life side. Also, it seems you don’t what secular pro-life is as well.
“The genetic existence of a human may begin at conception, but it’s not a person yet!”
This is not based on any scientific facts or evidence. This just ad hoc then anything.
Abortion is wrong.
“A pregnancy to a woman is perhaps one of the most determinative aspects of her life. It disrupts her body. It disrupts her education. It disrupts her employment. And it often disrupts her entire family life.” Sarah Weddington – Wade Attorney
“The genetic existence of a human may begin at conception, but it’s not a person yet!”This is not based on any scientific facts or evidence. This just ad hoc then anything.
Scientific consensus does not endorse Con’s scientific claims as "it was concluded that biology alone is not able to determine the point at which personhood is established” 
"Con's" in this sentence should be "Pro's". Apologies!
I'd be happy to accept, but I need longer argument times - 2 weeks?
Conception > Birth:
Pro shows that human life begins at conception. Con counters that technical life void of consciousness is not special, and certainly not overriding of the personal sovereignty of people (implying that women are people, which is a built in assumption to which I see no problem).
Made up "refutations":
I won't lie, I hate invented quotations the other side is supposed to have said.
Pro makes the immediate choice to drop all arguments in R2, and then doesn't show up in R3 (in spite of previously complaining of con's near-tardiness).
There were of course various other clauses offered by con, but again, pro made the informed decision to drop them all.
