    Icon9 Suicide

    What are your views on it?

    There are many countries where it is considered as crime (not suicide, but attempt to).

    Does a person have the right to take his own life?

    Why people are driven to such extremes?

    Is it the ultimate bravery or ultimate cowardice?

    Is death an escape from the moribund life?

    Very tough one, I dont see the point in making it illegal though, the only reason I can see is causing trouble if in public or distressing relatives but putting them in jail is hardly going to help anything.

    I've been told that suicide is painless and that it brings on many changes but personally, I can take or leave it if I please.

    Yes. I agree. Why they have to make it legally punishable?

    Especially when it can act as no deterrent?

    Although I feel if they did it in a high street or a crowded building its a public offence, cant be nice seeing someone slitting their wrists on your way to work.

    Think threads on suicide have been closed round these parts before, potentially something to do with Aussie law

    Suicide is perfectly acceptable I feel. Everybody has the right to decide when to end their lives.

    Perhaps if you're already dying of a terminal illness. But the incredible, potentially life altering trauma that suicide can have on your friends and loved ones makes it completely unacceptable to me. Nor should a chemical imbalance in the brain be a reason for the state to condone self harm.

    My above only relates to healthy people, totally agree with what bahnz states here.

    People can make their own choices and I don't see what criminalising it would do, but I personally think it's terrible. There's no bravery or honour in suicide. And I think, sadly, if most people who commit suicide had the benefit of hindsight, they'd never even consider the idea of cutting short their time on this earth.

    Although you can never really understand what these people are going through, or how much they're suffering, it is traumatic for their loved ones and they're the ones who really suffer.

    Personally believe it should be up to the individualin question in regards to whether they choose to end their lives.

    However, I also believe it can be a cowardice way out of it, if the situation is not too serious. For example, if family or friends were to die before, and thus caused the suicide, i believe it is a cowardice way out.

    But as said before, if it was someone with a serious disease or has been suffering with depression for a long, long period of time, it makes it somewhat better.

    Seems a totally ridiculous thing to pass judgement on to me. How can you understand the state of mind of someone who ends their own life and decide for them if it was the right decision or not? That's a special sort of arrogance.

    A wise decision imo. The only wise decision actually.
