Suppressing discussion of arguably the most important legal topic this

open for inclusion.  Of course, this doesn't mention the obvious  critical Affs 
that might be run to "overturn Roe."
This just seems silly to me -- if you're right that activism occurs in  
debate and "debate is real world," then you should be able to muster up  
progressive forces to engage these sorts of arguments IN THE DEBATE about  overturning
