    Identification of key points: 4 5
    Comments: The proposition makes several good points in the debate. It is probably true if the US invested more in other method then they would develop, but there is no established pace for that development and little evidence of it. The fact you concede there is no complete replacement means I am inherently skeptical of what we would do in the mean time while the incentives were working on replacements. I think it would be better to focus less on the inherent value of all life and say even if she is right fewer lives are taken in the world of the proposition. We save all animals and only some sick humans will die. Opposition world = all animals die and some sick humans will still die even with all their animal test medical help. Net overall better for the proposition.
    In terms of the ad hom's, all name calling arguments are dismissed as poor arguments. It would be equally poor logic to dismiss all argument unrelated to name calling made by the opponent. This is not a reason you can win overall. It is a reason to disregard her rhetorical flourish.
    Don't call your opponent a baby killer. Record your video's at school where you have access to wi-fi. Excellent narrowing of the issues down to the core elements of the debate.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Monique Saastamoinen

    Reason for Decision:

    The proposition concedes the replacements aren't ready. A partial ban seems to be the more prudent policy.
