Is Suicide Justifiable?

Yes

Side Score: 18
VS.

No

Side Score: 10

I don't think people should walk around offing themselves just because they're pussies and don't have the balls to hack it in life. However, everyone has the right to die with dignity. Where one is terminally ill and/or in a state of chronic suffering, then they absolutely have the right to suicide.

Why shouldn't people "walk around offing themselves just because they're pussies and don't have the balls to hack it in life."?

Ya know, Chuck, fuck it I don't really give a shit. It's more government cheese to go around. I mean I think it's kind of sad sometimes for people to give up on life so easily, but in the end the world keeps on spinning and no one really gives a shit. I mean we pretend to give a shit sometimes, because we just watched Oprah on TV or something and it's good the Christian thing today. But in the end, no one really gives a shit about the individual. So, point taken. Everybody can off themselves.

Side: Yes

Not only is suicide justifiable but it ought to be supported, even assisted, if requested..., and in a few extreme cases, the assistance should come even if it hasn't been requested ;)

Side: Yes

You make a good point. Assisted suicide is a slippery slope.

Side: No

In a way, yes. Being chased by mad people wielding knives and swords with dogs on the loose and rats around you,Its better to jump of a building than to end up being eaten up. Not for fun though

Side: Yes

In some cases, absolutely. If someone is terminally ill and/or their value of life is extremely low, they have the right to end their suffering. Who are we to force them through that?

Side: Yes

Some people are so miserable that death is better than life. If God will not help them, they can kill themselves.

Side: Yes

yes and i wish more people had the balls do it. there really are no rules to life and how we decide live...sure there have been certain guidelines established, but who the F are those people to say joe reject should live his miserable life because his mother loves him?

Side: Yes

When someone has been bullied, it can be viewed as justifiable.

Side: Yes

Suicide itself is justifiable, as the majority of people who commit suicide have been driven to the point where they feel like they have no other choice but to end it all. What is NOT justifiable, is pushing someone to the point where they feel that they physically have no other option that suicide.

Everybody has the right to live or end their own lives. Nobody else owns your life except you yourself.

How does this justify it though?

Side: No

Depends, in some cases yes, in most cases no. Suicide does effect people around you, if you've known someone who killed themselves then you would understand.

Side: No

OK. I've met your condition.

I don't see your point .

Side: Yes

Not that I disagree with your point, but I assume he meant someone close to you (i.e. best friend, sibling, parent, etc.), if you've met this condition and still don't sympathize with his point of view, I would be quite surprised.

Side: Yes

That's not really fair. If you are a real friend (and emotionally aware of their experience, so of similar age group also) who is with that person, you should know what they're going through. If they are under outside pressure, you should help them. If they are in pain, you should empathise with that choice.

Side: Yes

Well, I don't think it is, because if a person was given a life, he/she should live it... Life is like a present, why would we get rid of such a wonderful present... I think that nothing in this world is worth a person's life... Suicidal people are sick, they have some problems with their psychics, because a normal person would never commit suicide

What about the people who love the person who's thinking of killing themselves?

My best friend killed herself earlier this year. It was completely avoidable but she wouldn't ask for help. She turned to a permanent solution for a temporary problem.

Her brother found her hanging in her bedroom. Everyone who knew her blamed themselves. Even I blamed myself for not being there for her, but in the end it was her who blocked us all out.

The point of this is that suicide is not only a permanent solution for a temporary problem, but that it hurts a lot of people. Nobody should have that forced on them.

Side: No

I totally agree with you.

A person who commit suicide hurts everyone around him/her, it affects all relatives, friends and so on

Side: No

Whether you hated it or not is quite irrelevant. Suicide is justifiable, and human emotions only detract from this truth.

Side: Yes
1 point

Well, I don't think that it is justifiable. Even if there are troubles or something there must be another way out. I agree with that point of view that it must be harmful for people who actually loved you. Moreover, you were given a life, while someone, you don't know, just die because of diseases or something, and it wasn't their intention. You have only one life, not nine as cats do, and you have to appreciate it, because there won't be another chance to live.

Side: No
