    I believe that there are certain circumstances in which it is acceptable to kill yourself. For instance, what about 9/11? The people that were on the top floors of the twin towers and had no chance of escaping were going to either die a long, tortuous death by burning to death or they could jump out of the building and die instantly. That's what many people did that day... Or what if you saw a little boy in the street about to get hit by a bus, and you knew your only chance of saving him was to run and push him out of the way, leaving you to be killed instantly by the impact of the crash?

    If I had a disease which I could no longer care for myself, then yes. Or, if I were in horrible pain with no end in site, then yes.

    I believe, if you are alive, it is because whatever God you believe in still has a purpose for you, you can still help someone, and that makes your existence worth something. Taking your own life, deciding when you die, I believe, is taking God's power from Him, and it will not be better for you on the other side. Wait it out, you never know what good and amazing thing is around the next corner.

    Cmon, at best any God is hands off, granting free will to all. How else to explain all the evil and misery in the world, i.e. Would a benevolent loving God let this happen? Well, no, not really, unless you believe free will in addition to life is the Gift. Whatever purpose you have is determined by you. If there's a god, that God helps those who help themselves.

    Absolutely there is.

    Not according to what I've read about people who have had "Near Death Experiences." They say they learned that there are two things that result in serious penalties: Suicide and Murder.
  • addie 2013/07/03 08:43:02
    Of course. Who else can decide if your quality of life is worth it or not, if not you.
  • ruthannhausman 2013/07/03 07:44:51
    I do not believe in absolutes. That is, never 100%, as I know there are always some exception(s) that I hadn't thought about that pops up and may have a differing opinion. So I will state generally that, no, I do not believe suicide is ever a good option. Too many people are affected by suicide, and not just the deceased. Various lifelong outcomes too, such as grief and sorrow and, unfortunately, feelings of responsibility or of having "failed" the deceased. No, too much collateral damage with suicide.

    Having said all of that, I can imagine several scenarios where reconsideration on a case-by-case basis is called for. Physician-assisted suicide falls into that category also, but in those instances it's almost not like a true "suicide," as usually loved ones have been consulted and agree with the decision.

    But again, overall, I don't believe suicide is right.
  • polock 2013/07/02 22:15:37
    no, suicide solves nothing.

    Everyone has ups and downs, I believe you have to just soldier on." Its always darkest before the dawn."
  • blunomad SoCalEx... 2015/04/06 13:40:34
    Please explain the purpose of enduring great and growing suffering without hope of improvement? People soldier on to get somewhere. The only place a terminal patient is going is the grave.
  • SoCalEx... blunomad 2015/04/06 15:22:37
    We are all going to the grave eventually. For myself I will soldier on through thick and thin, pain and suffering until its my time to meet my maker. You of course can choose to do whatever you want with your life. Do you live in one of those states with assisted suicide?
  • blunomad SoCalEx... 2015/04/13 23:03:54
    I live overseas now, and have for some time. I personally don't understand what is gained in creating hypothetical ultimatums. No one knows what level of pain or dimensia or financial destruction they may put themselves and their family through. I hope I never have to deal with this as a real issue, right here, right now, but I think a reasonable view is to not rule out consideration. Frankly, as medicine continues to make "progress", and biological life can be sustained longer without regard to quality of life, people will be forced to take a more active role in selecting their own departure date. If I am a vegetable in a hospital bankrupting my family, what is gained?
  • SoCalEx... blunomad 2015/04/13 23:47:26
    I'm sorry you are going through tough times, and whatever you decide for yourself is of course your business. I'm speaking of my own beliefs for myself, I would never kill myself. you have free will to do whatever you please.
  • frank 2013/07/02 16:25:29
    I had an Uncle who committed suicide over 40 years ago when he found out that he had terminal cancer and refused to put his family through the pain and suffering that was to come. I am not in favor of anyone committing suicide but in my Uncles cast in agree.
  • pjobrien 2013/07/02 15:19:36
    I do not believe it is ever right.
  • SlaveWaterNymph 2013/07/02 14:20:58
    in my opinion i dont think so.
  • bobo 2013/07/02 12:19:03
    we often terminate our pets when dying a painful death
    ..we also should have the legal option to do so

    I think it's possible.
  • polkastria 2013/07/02 10:46:25
    I believe in physician assisted suicide. When a person has a terminal illness and there is no hope left for any quality of life, they should have the right to take their own life in as painless a way as possible.
    My grandfather died of cancer and we cared for him at home as he developed bedsores and slowly lost his mind, his memories, and himself to the cancer.
  • Lib-Algerian.xo 2013/07/02 08:13:20
    Nope there is never a time! Life is too precious, no1 desrves for you to die for or vice versa, our soul is a gift from god and we should take care of it and thank him day and night for living... We should be grateful always.... Don't ever think like that hun...

    I have to plagiarize a statement and say, YES!!! For dems/libs just prior to the next election...
  • Jim 2013/07/02 04:46:17
    There is never a right time or a wrong time to commit suicide. A person who commits suicide is not in their right mind. There is always a solution to every problem. A sane person realizes this. A person who is not in their right mind believe that there is no alternative but to commit suicide. This is why we must be vigilant with our family and friends to make sure that they get counseling instead of committing suicide.

    Only in the successful performance of a lifesaving act.
  • Jim Cat 2013/07/02 04:46:58
    That's not suicide. That is giving your life for another.
  • Cat Jim 2013/07/03 06:04:12
    Any act that knowingly ends you own life is still suicide.

    The way I see it if you want to kill yourself go for it it's free will .
  • Rod 2013/07/02 02:14:44
    Of course there is. When the pain is unbearable and the prognosis is poor, why not? The quality of life is just as important to many of us as the quantity of life is to others.

    I can't get a job and have no money for the most basic needs. Everyone assumes I'll be
    fine because I'm smart and attractive but that's not the logistical reality of my life
    circumstances. I'm not depressed or responding to some exstitential agnst. My life
    situation is desperate. I'm backed against a wall. People who mean well have been
    totally insensitive to my reality. Don't make assumptions think through a person's
    actual circumstances instead of offering lazy platitudes. My demise is a loss and a
    tragic waste. Something is very wrong with a society that throws me away.I have work
    to do. I care about humanity despite being shut out and unwanted by society.I am over.

    Thank you you are very kind. I'm reminded (coming from NYC) of the cliched reaction
    many have when walking past a homeless person get a job. This person can't get a
    shower clean clothes a phone call or mail. Think through their actual logistical situation.
