Con

I am against this resolution because of one important contention:
1) An Individual's Rights
A life should not be discarded to save people that one is not affiliated with. The person that would die is innocent, and has no gain from dieing for an other's cause and would most definitely not consent. The idea is unfathomable when looked at from the following perspective:
What if you were the innocent person?
You would be killed for some "greater good" that has no purpose in your life.
Vote CON

Pro

I agree, an individual's rights is important. However, the welfare of the society matters more. In an choice like this, both choices are immoral. However, we must choose one to be morally permissible. The Aff choice is better. What is better, to kill one or to kill more than one. Either way, we are killing. So we have to choose one choice to be morally permissible. Obviously, killing one person is much better than killing many people. When faced like a choice like this, we have to vote Pro.
