over-population is a thing and it will not simply go away. And i believe if people are dying, It should be people who actually want to.

Depression is a ever spreading cause that is pushing many over the edge unwillingly. Those who are depressed whom take their own lives do not have a clear line of thought occurring within them some even having GENETIC depression meaning they physically can not see the world as a happier place without the help of drugs but for most therapy sessions and possibly a move away from an abusive household can easily remedy the problem. In no way should the rate of suicide be higher for the purpose of controlling population growth as many survivors who attempted to take their lives will say the minute they jumped, Took the pills, Or pulled the trigger it was an instant regret.

In my opinion, The topic is wrongly worded. Overpopulation is a crisis, This is true. However abetting suicide by claiming that it will actually help is not the way forward. Any solution must be obtained by careful consideration, And governments are organizing birth control campaigns like distributing condoms and spreading awareness as a result of overpopulation. But whatever the case may be, One cannot justify suicide as a solution to this crisis. I reserve my vote for all 3 rounds, But given the topic, Pro must put forth some strong arguments.
