Ithank my opponent for taking up this debate with me, hope we can have a nice clean debate and learn something from eachother.

My debate as stated " precautions should be taken for suicidal people" More or less. I would like to present my arguement as clear as possible(:

some statistics
on people who reeferred help for suicide.
# 90% of calls were made by phone – this was the most common method of contact.
# 137,627 contacts by email – a growth of some 24% between 2004 and 2005.
# 39,336 face-to-face contacts in samaratians and other groups.

Suicide has gone up statistically increased 78% since 2000 in britain and european countries.
People who commit suicide or think about commiting suicide are percepted as attention seekers or " people with mental problems" etc ,
Dont get me wrong there is plenty of help out there in addition to chat lines, help groups etc.
My arguement is that THE people that have commit suicide obviously didnt find the right help.
Maybe its because they DIDNT want help?
MAYBE they had health problems?

Whatever the reason help should always be expected for anyone in these conditions, childline, samartains etc have a good network and ratings in accordance with suicide but they ARE not allowed to express opinions of themseleves making the suicide victim be more addament to commit suicide feeling that there is noone to relate to.

Comprehensive support should be on the gender suicide victims should be able to sit down and feel comfortable , feel like there is someone to talk to and relate to rather than someone to present the statistics and health worries aswell as family etc.

This is the worry, precautions are not been provided in connection for people suffering from suicidal thoughts or personality borderline , like i said Yes society as a whole are "trying" to incompensate suicide chatlines , support etc.

My arguement is that citizens suffering from suicidal conditions SHOULD have someone to relate to im talking about someone who has been there themself , someone who can give unconditional support im talking about groups and people who can sit down for hours and talk things through face to face.

Most teen , adults after been interviewed after trying to commit suicide had said.

"they did it because they were trying to escape from a situation that seemed impossible to deal with or to get relief from really bad thoughts or feelings., they didn't want to die as much as they wanted to escape from what was going on. And at that particular moment dying seemed like the only way out."

Often teens and adults try and commit suicide after talking on chat lines , some accomplish some dont.. For the ones who dont they say " noone understood me".

Society is segregated under the circumstances.. A alcholic should not mix with another alcholic, Drug user cannot mix with another drug user, but who else can understand EXACTLY what its like other than the ones been through it themselves?

To conclude my arguement, my statement has been held.. Precautions should be made for extremly depressed people wanting to commit suicide it should be reinstated more in the world, in schools and in work places, people suffering from sucidal thoughts should be able to come together in a group talk and rehabliate as a whole.

The population decreases 30% by suicide victims its sad to see these people didnt get the right help, and thats exactly all they need the RIGHT help.
I hope my opponent can see where im coming from in this i hope to learn from what he has to say also. (:

Pro, you may already know this but when you said "My oponent refuted" I think you either meant "My opponent forfeited" or "My opponent hasn't refuted my arguments". Just letting you know if you didn't know already.

You must not think very highly of this site now lol... your first two debates were forfeits. I hate it when people forfeit its rude. I'm pretty sure they can drop in for a minute and either say hey I ran out of time sorry or at least say they concede so it won't drag on... Some are reasonable but this one... No excuse. I apologize for my comrades, and once again, well played!
