Abortion and Human Personhood

What follows is the text of a speech I made in a debate held recently in my home-town.  The topic for the debate was Abortion - A Basic Human Right.  My team represented the negative.  My part in the debate was to discuss the personhood of the unborn child.  My speech, although it contained a few additions of my own, was largely a summary and adaptation of an excellent article by Peter Kreeft, called Human Personhood Begins at Conception, available online at the Catholic Educator's Resource Center.   I present my effort below, but I strongly recommend you see Kreeft's article as well.

Random Quote: "They have invented a phrase, a phrase that is a black and white contradiction in two words - "free love" - as if a lover ever had been, or ever could be, free. It is the nature of love to bind itself, and the institution of marriage merely paid the average man the compliment of taking him at his word." - G.K. Chesterton, The Defendant
