I suppose you know your argument is quite old.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_immortality

Main objection is that there're much more universes where something
bad happens when you avoid death than where everything is OK. But it
shouldn't be a problem in quantum suicide variant.

Main confusion is why measure of universes which are this or that way
is important at all for you your subjective experience. It is a good
criterion for natural selection though (and so is somewhat hardcoded
in human mind).
