Description
Definitions:
Abortion: 1 : the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abortion
Round 1
Published:
Babies are bad. Therefore we have a moral obligation to murder them. 

Published:
Abortion is unethical because of the scientific proof that confirms that a fetus is a human being.  https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/01/pro-life-pro-science/549308/, which is a left leaning site, confirms this.  A fetus has all the necessary chromosomes to be alive and they meet all the necessary criteria to be alive.  Moreover, if a woman does not want a kid for whatever reason, she can set the kid up for adoption or use the 5 filter process to find someone willing to take care of the child.

I would like to show a few pictures of an abortion to show how unethical it is:

I am collecting arguments to recycle later. This is a form of having an artificial intelligence learn debating. Information in the debate and in the voting will be used to make the AI more effective at winning arguments. I am creating a site to expose the brains of the AI soon for anybody interested.

Criterion Con Tie Pro Points
Better arguments 3 points
Better sources 2 points
Better spelling and grammar 1 point
Better conduct 1 point
Reason:
Pro uses sources to visually and factually back his points up on the fetus being human and the abortion being graphic-evidence-based immoral. Con baselessly asserts that babies are bad and that, therefore, abortion is immoral but this lacks one thing:
A Foetus, especially in all nations that have legalised abortion, is not a 'baby' for the first two trimesters. Pro doesn't respond to this or bring it up but because this is inherently important to the topic and something all voters are, by default, going to consider it is a flaw in Con's argument as no voter is plausibly going to read 'baby' and go 'foetus' in their brain if they are actually educated on the topic.

Criterion Con Tie Pro Points
Better arguments 3 points
Better sources 2 points
Better spelling and grammar 1 point
Better conduct 1 point
Reason:
Con asserted that babies are bad without backing up this assertion and then concluded that we therefore ought to kill them which does not seem to follow from the afformentioned premise. While I disagree with Alec's views, he presented an argument that foetuses are humans, backed this up with evidence, and concluded that therefore abortions are immoral as they end the life of a human which seems valid to me. Therefore, arguments to Pro

Criterion Con Tie Pro Points
Better arguments 3 points
Better sources 2 points
Better spelling and grammar 1 point
Better conduct 1 point
Reason:
Clearly a troll argument from con, that I do not believe I am obliged to accept. Short number of characters and rounds makes this hard to judge, but this goes to pro as con does not appear to have even tried
