When someone is in pain and is in the clutches of a terminal sickness how much do they really want to go on. If you are dying of brain cancer and you don't want your family to see you melting into nothingness would you really just continue on even though you had less than six months to live. Put yourself in their shoes, no we don't mean the elderly we mean the young people who don't want to waste away and be in pain for the last years of their life. Of course strict laws would help to limit the amount of people who choose the option and no government would have the right to choose for you. While you and many others may argue that it is inhumane I believe that the topic must be discussed and that a federal law must be passed setting it in stone weather assisted suicide is a choice for people suffering everywhere or if they will have to spend there last months in pain and losing their minds.

I accept :)

I will be arguing that euthanasia should not be made legal.

As you are supportive of euthanasia, I will let you make the first argument.

The debate has finished. I presume he has conceded the debate considering he forfeited 4 out of the 5 rounds.

I don't think we should be encouraging the youth in Asia to commit suicide.
