Can a conclusion in an argument come before the premises?
Such as:“The key problem is the supposed superiority of the two major alternatives to adoption. Abortion seems to convey an immediate benefit: It makes the problem disappear. (And don't worry about death or post-abortion regrets that may grow more severe as time goes by.) Despite 1996's welfare-reform bill, single-parenting still conveys benefits.”
By definition, it cannot!! A conclusion is intended to conclude the paper -- conclude = end.
