    Suicide

    Advertisements



    Suicide is the process of purposely ending one's own life. The way societies view suicide varies widely according to culture and religion. For example, many Western cultures, as well as mainstream Judaism, Islam, and Christianity tend to view killing oneself as quite negative. One myth about suicide that may be the result of this view is considering suicide to always be the result of a mental illness. Some societies also treat a suicide attempt as if it were a crime. However, suicides are sometimes seen as understandable or even honorable in certain circumstances, such as in protest to persecution (for example, hunger strike), as part of battle or resistance (for example, suicide pilots of World War II; suicide bombers) or as a way of preserving the honor of a dishonored person (for example, killing oneself to preserve the honor or safety of family members).

    As opposed to suicidal behaviors, self-mutilation is defined as deliberately hurting oneself without meaning to cause one's own death. Examples of self-mutilating behaviors include cutting any part of the body, usually of the wrists. Other self-injurious behaviors include self-burning, head banging, pinching, and scratching.

    As of 2003, Oregon was the only state with laws that authorized physician-assisted suicide. Physician-assisted suicide seems to be less offensive to people compared to euthanasia that is done by a nonphysician, although the acceptability of both means to end life tends to increase as people age and with the number of times the person who desires their own death repeatedly asks for such assistance.

    Suicide is for punks looking for an easy way out of living and those trying to avoid paying their debts. Child support does not count, maybe. Why should I kill myself when other folks are bargaining for life???
    I need to think about something...maybe you know what...

    Unfortunately you cannot ask someone who has already killed himself in order to get an answer for the question. Assuming they did not left a note.

    I am sure the ripper was not even present when the suicide happened. maybe we need to find a better way to bring them back to life and get a good answer, followed by a hard slap for wasting a good life that someone else could have put to good use. You know who I hate the most, those who killed themselves and did not spare their organs. what a waste!

    I have to agree with you, that is pretty bad.
