I accept!

Euthanasia and Physician-Assisted Suicide should be legal in extreme cases where the patient is willing and suffering from excruciating pain for an extended amount of time with no certain end in site.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

If the patient is suffering from an extreme amount of pain, they may enter palliative care. Palliative care reduces the pain as much as they can so that they can spend their last days with their family.

If the person would like to end their life right away, how do you know that they're are in the right mental state. Their illness may have affected them so they should not be able to determine to end their life then and there.

Pro

Not all pain can be alleviated with palliative care, so both assisted suicide and palliative care should be options for the patient.

"If the person would like to end their life right away" I support waiting a long time before proceeding with euthanasia in case the patient changes their mind.
