Hello! so i am doing a debate today for the topic of euthanasia.

(PS. i ask someone who is completely new to debating to please debate against me, cause i am too new to debating.)

Definitions:

Euthanasia- the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma. The practice is illegal in most countries.

First round- Acceptance
Second round- Arguments
Third round-Rebuttals
Fourth round-Closing statement

Accepted.

I am 1 month old on this site and have no formal debate experience, so hopefully that is "new" enough for Con...

Pitiful.
1000 characters to make a case for Euthanasia...

I doubt Pro will contest that people have the right to life. Like with any right, it is up to the individual as to whether or not they are going to exercise that right. Rights, by definition, cannot translate into obligations. If someone has the right to free speech but chooses not to speak out against anything, then it is ultimately their own loss. If someone has the right to vote, but chooses not to vote, it's the same deal. Why should the right to life be any different? If someone has the right to life, they should also have the right to abstain from exercising that right-- they should have the right to death. If someone wants to die, then the safest and least painful way to do it is to have euthanasia administered in a clinical setting. By keeping euthanasia illegal, the government violates our right to death and causes unnecessary additional suffering to citizens, which is completely contrary to the role of government.

1,000 character debates aren't necessarily bad, it's an interesting character-compressing exercise and exercising in maximising the impact of your statements in limited space.

One debater, the one I didn't choose, didn't do absolutely anythin'
He got slayed by such laser, like a poor moose--he obviously tried everythin'
The winner is such obvious here, easily spotted as a donkey's rear
It's like the loser drank a gallon of beer, he's got a twisted unrealistic sneer

These people don't know how to respect or even wisely manage 'er time
It's always conduct point lost, the winner may taste victory but I taste lemon lime
This is happenin' so often it should be treated by the mod's as a grave crime
The commit-tors should be "rewarded" like in Brain Sludge--painted with slime

You may think your "arguments" are 100-percent unbeatable
Your "impressive hand of cards" an' "grand poker-face" unreadable
In reality you have such shame, even your friends think this incident unspeakable
Your tragic-horror story's so sad an' yet already set, it's un-completable

You forfeit-er, so darn blind, you wander around with a blank mind,
You can't do anything at all, an invisible mountain did you climb
If you had eyes they'd be completely raked--by you, my "great mate"
Your cookie dough of arguments is unbaked, judges gonna give you bad ranks

Please don't go and ask me for any advice, I can't be bo'ered with such li'l lice
I'd rather go eat a bowl of poisonous rice; you forfeiter can't be even be saved by Jesus Christ
You really don't fit the description "intelligent mind", compared to it you're really like a tiny mice
You may think your short rounds are "concise", oh sure they are, and you're just being nice

I shake my head at such incompetence, I really want to print this debate out and crumble it
Don't take any more debates from now on hence, you'll just be killed again, smashed like a poor kid
Your forfeitin' is such terrible I feel like vomitin', stompin' my feet on your rude red word carpet
So just don't do it--it belongs in the Town of Wrongitin, I'll just sell

Reasons for voting decision: If I actually need to say why pro won, let me know and Tommy boy over here will hit you in the head with a bat because you're an idiot. Sorry I just had to steal a quote Tommy Boy and make it my own. My precious. But anyway, I'll still write out my RFD. Not anything close to 9Spacekings length though. So anyway, con forfeited and didn't make arguments. Pro made arguments. Pro supported his side and con did nothing. Therefore pro wins.

Reasons for voting decision: Well, a 1000 character case is a lot better than a 0 character one. Due to forfeits and the utter lack of arguments, easy win for Pro.
