Why not? If a loser wants to die, then let him. It will ease up the population as well.

Come on, try at least. Find a document on google and copy paste it here if anything. There are many articles against legalization of suicide

i say that the government should not give two shits about suicide. I personally feel that the government would not achieve anything by legalizing an action done by a person who cant control his loss

The government would certainly achieve a lot by legalization of suicide. There would be lesser paperwork for the police, more cops and resources free to catch actual criminals and decline of population which would result in lesser resource expenditure. And the media will not be able make so much publicity out of suicide. Personally I think those who want to suicide should join the army or something and die for a cause, but I think they avoid that because they are cowards. Since this is the conclusion, I hope you do not post any strong new rebuttal points. Good luck to Con.

sometimes decline of losers is good and the government can do a lot better without them. Thus giving stronger people a chance

I'm for pro completely, except for when he states that suicidal people don't join the army because they're cowards. This is flat out false.
Firstly, there's psychological evaluation involved, training takes a long time, you have to wait to get sent into a war zone, and then purposefully get shot whilst simultaneously fighting for your cause, and a dead soldier isn't a useful soldier.
It's just an ineffective way of killing yourself, and doesn't help your cause because people are relying on you not getting shot.

So, if someone's killing themselves, are they really gonna care if it's legal or not?

They want to keep on living for what? Just to live. We need a more productive and motivated workforce which can't be made up of people overcome with emotions. And reduce the population. Too many people

Sorry man, but I'm fully against this. Since I'm not a debater, I'll make this short. Almost everyone will feel like they've been overcome with sadness, anger or anxiety. Many people contemplate suicide for a while and eventually realise they want to keep on living. Legalizing suicide? They'd think it's alright and would do it, not leaving them the time in which they could've changed their mind.
