What is your evidence to prove your point, sir.
Debate Round No. 1

Its simple, suicide is committed by people who suffer extreme hardship or are extremely weak-willed. I think suicide should be legalized as it would save up on cops' resources and reduce the demotivated population.
It would save the police's time and resources as they won't have to write a report and investigate an illegal suicide. The paperwork would reduce marginally, and policemen can spend their time pursuing actual criminals. Suicide may happen due to harassment, but it can easily be reported and is not a justified reason for suicide. It would also reduce the hold of media as they use suicides to increase their newspapers or channels' popularity.
As many of the weak willed individuals will die, the population would decrease and the world will consume lesser resources. Also, we would have only the motivated workers left.
Suicide goes against the natural instinct for survival. It is a cowardly act and saving a person who would commit suicide will result in people discriminating that person and making life harder for him/her. It is better that they can end their life and that they won't have to endure more torment from society.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to Pro as Con forfeits 2 rounds. Con's only argument is him asking for Pro's evidence, which is a de facto, BOP placement on Pro which means that, under the resolution, that Pro would have to prove why we should legalize suicide. Pro responds by showing how it would sort of help out evolution by thinning out the weaker people and it would help population control. To add to that, Pro argues that it would save on law enforcement costs. For that I have to give the arguments points to Pro.
