I believe euthanasia practices, that is to say the voluntary assisted suicide of competent adults conducted, again out of there out choosing, (semantics be damned) should be legal.

Just so we can be clear on what I mean by "competent adults"..

Competent - "Having the capacity to function or develop in a particular way" [1]
I suppose in other words free of any mental illness or infliction that would impair one's judgment capabilities required to operate normally in day to day life.

Adults- Though admittedly 21 would be a personally more fitting and convenient age for my side to argue in this debate for, the legal age of adulthood in the U.S. remains to be 18. In addition to this, 18 also happens to be the age of consent regarding Oregon's controversial Death with Dignity Act. So lets just leave it at that, 18 years old.

I look forward to the debate, and best of luck to my future opponent.
