Committing suicide

Choosing suicide

Taking one's own life.


Suicide is the strongest possible protest against, or perhaps the only escape from, an intolerable situation.


Counter Claim:

Suicide only rejects the situation, without offering alternatives. Examples of suicide tend to reinforce the incorrect idea that this is a viable way out of or a solution to problems. Every suicide or attempted suicide bears the burden of being an evil example.
