I've been thinking that age should have limitations. Assuming we are allowed to continue with biogentic research it would be imperative that eventually as health care improves that people should be forced to die, before the world becomes far to grossly over populated to yield any sustainability.

Con

My Opponent is arguing for murder. He states that people should be "forced to die" if they get old, because they are too old. His justification for this obscure belief is to counter overpopulation. First of all, the UN projects that the population will stabilize at 9 billion[1], thus eliminating any need to murder people. Global birthrates have been declining[2], so it is very likely to not be a problem. Even if it is a problem, it is one that must be countered by keeping birthrates low, not murdering our oldest and wisest citizens.

Vote con on this debate, and if for some reason you believe that my Opponents argument still holds any ground, I would like you to consider exterminating your loving, elderly grandparents because they got "too old".

Reasons for voting decision: Con's counter-arguments were substantial and required rebuttal (lol @ 1 round debates). Sources to Con because they helped make his argument.

Reasons for voting decision: Con negates and uses sources. Pro's argument was weak to begin with and the fact that it was just one round ensured a guaranteed loss.

Reasons for voting decision: It seems that skateall24 seemed more intent on gaining his right to vote bomb other members than actually debating...thett3 quickly swept away skateall24's baseless arguments...
