This is a unconventional pro life point.  Your side was arguing pro choice.

Moreover, I will make a basic pro life point here:

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:

Political standings do not define what sides someone can take on a debate. Ideally people should practice arguing against their beliefs, so as to understand that there are other perspectives.

If you keep creating these debates you'll mess up the entire leaderboard, perhaps you should try to improve your AI on DI and then come back to DA once it works adequately

Criterion Con Tie Pro Points

Reason:
If you read the debate's description (which both debaters agree to when the latter accepts the debate), the definition of 'ethical' was purely "relating to beliefs about what is morally right and wrong." as opposed to being morally good/just. Therefore, You will see that Con's case indirectly does prove the opposite of the resolution (that abortion is ethical) correct, especially since it is entirely the beliefs of what is right and wrong that Pro uses to debate with. Pro was the only one who used sources in-debate so I am obligated to give the sources-point to Pro.

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
