It's unjust.
Debate Round No. 1
Wylted

Pro

1. Right to life- People have a fundamental right to life. Just like we have a right to free speech and many other things. We enjoy a certain amount of autonomy. Just like the right to free speech doesn't mean you can't be silent. The right to life doesn't mean you can't choose to die. Having a right to life implies that you own your life. It's your life to do as you please with and if you decide that you'd pefer to go on your own terms rather than being taken by a terminal illness, you should have every right to do so.

2. Suicide- Suicide is a despeate act taken out in secrecy and leaving the people close to the one committing suicide feeling guilty and confused as to why it happened among several other conflicting emotions. By allow assisted suicide we can bring this process out into the open. Patients can taalk to their relatives about all these things, while pursuing a legal form of suicide. The process of suicide can be a lot less painful and a lot more open to friends and family of the person.

3. Terminally ill- A lot of terminally Ill have a very rough road ahead of them. They might lose their health their mind and have an extremely painful death. Allowing those individuals to commit suicide will only be cutting out a very short part of their lives which will be extremely painful and even dehumanizing.

I would advise Con to make his arguments much longer than two words or all points will go to pro.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Pro. Con forfeited a majority of rounds which is rarely acceptable conduct in any debate setting. Arguments - Pro. Con provided no rebuttals to Pro's arguments which left him standing unchallenged. This is a clear win for Pro.
