How do I argue in defense of life?

I am a freshman in college and I am in a government class. We had to sign up for a position in a trial/debate we will be having toward the end of the semester. The topic is abortion and I am the only attorney for the ban of abortion. I know it is only a mock debate but, in conversations with the class, I found I am one of five, out of 27, students that don’t support abortion. I think this would be a great opportunity to change some minds but I have no idea where I can get logical/credible/good points of argument. I could use as much help as possible.
