Not necessarily true. A lot of people talk about it and decide to do it anyway. If a person feels as if his or her life is no longer worth living (whether it is or not in other people’s view) he’s probably going to do it or at least attempt it. Potential suicides are usually not rational. People who are suffering a fatal disease, especially a painful one, may be quite rational when they decide to commit suicide.
You leave emotion out of your logic. Look up what a sound argument is. You can make a logical argument that leads to a wrong conclusion. Simply leave out certain data. People do this all the time to trick others, take their money, get their vote, even get them to kill or kill themselves.
Seemed to me Lois summarized the situation quite well.
Death has a certain sanctity to it also, and deserves to be respected.
If my body is spent by old age or terminal illness, by what right do others force me to continue enduring the hell of invasive medical treatments that do nothing but keep me breathing a bit longer while my body has turned into a torture chamber. What is the point?
Because too many faith-based are terrified and resent the very notion of death as an affront to their over bloated egos??
