Published:
Abortion up until 20 weeks is morally acceptable because a fetus can't feel pain up until then.

Reason:
In case of FF You are allowed to vote for the other side if you can sufficiently explain why.
Con proves the resolution correct because the agreed upon definition of 'ethical' is 'relating to beliefs about what is morally right and wrong.'.
This is a sneaky definition and also because Pro spells 'abortion' as 'abprtion' as well as that they forfeit Round 1 of the autowin trap, I will give conduct to Con and let arguments be tied as the misspelling of 'abprtion' means Pro is semantically trapping himself/herself (profile says 'male' but Victoria is female) just as much as it traps Con with 'ethical'. I guess I leave arguments tied and give S&G and Conduct to Con as these are flaws on Pro's part that screw Pro over, and the FF post-trap is just bad conduct.
