I affirm the resolution resolved: that physician assisted suicide should be legalized.

This is true because when a person is in excruciating plain, on their death bed, should be able to be put out of their misery, and to be with Jesus.
Gabby042

Con

I negate the resolution resolved: that physician assisted suicide should be legalized. This is true because if it was legal in all states a lot of people would be dead just because they don't want to live.

I doubt that everyone in America will, and does want to kill them selves, and its not like they are commuting suicide just because they hate their lives, its because there is no chance that they are going to live and they are in pain and want to just speed the process up.
Imagine you have cancer, and your going threw Kim and your losing your hair, and the cancer is spreading through out your body and your having lots of surgery, but there is nothing that the doctors can do and your in really bad pain, would you want to be like that for a couple more months or even years, or would you like to go and be in heaven with Jesus?

Con

Alot of people in the world don't believe in Jesus so they probly wouldn't want to they would probly want to go to the land of 72 virging by going to a place and being a suicide bomber

But still, those people, i'm sure would still want to be put out of excrutiating pain, even if they didn't bilieve in God Or Jesus.
Gabby042

Con

but it still should be illegal becaus letting people kill themselves is still wrong

I would want my family knowing i was leaving hapy(ish) rather than painfully and sad.

Con

But the fact of someone wanting to commit suicide with the help of an doctor is just different

My opinion is people should be able to have the choice whether they want to die or not, but I, personally, am against it. But I'm not everyone, am I? So therefore I think it's only fair that you choose your own death. I have no business in others' lives. I wish more people would not be so judgemental and govern their OWN lives.
