Reason:

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.

Conclusion:
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.
