Hi! I am not against the principle of physician assisted suicide, however I think its implementation has/will do more harm to patients. Specifically, I am talking about Oregon-style laws that have been held in such high regard by those in the pro-assisted suicide community. I believe they should be reversed in Oregon and other states, and not passed in the rest.

Here are some definitions:
Physician Assisted Suicide Laws- Laws that allow physician's upon patient request, to provide options for patients to end their life (the difference between physician assisted suicide and euthanasia is important- in PAS the patient self-administers the lethal treatment (pushes button, etc.))
Implemented- to be used passed into law.

The rounds will go like this:
Round 1: Pro explains debate and lays out some definitions relevant to all side, Con accepts
Round 2: Pro case, Con case+refutations
Round 3 : Pro refutes and concludes, Con refutes and concludes

People should be forced to live and suffer until the end. It is against the slaughter god (who I worship)for someone not to suffer befor they die. I have a PhD so I know what I'm talking about.
