If it ever becomes *moral* to take your own life, then it *can* become moral to 
not take your own life.

do something He don't like, He slap yo ass.  :-)
JohnR's position on all of this is just a retread of that same old familiar F E 
A R that has driven religious thought for centuries: "'Morality' consists of 
doing what *we* say to do during your life so that Bad Things don't happen to 
you after your death."

    Share,
Taking one's own life is similar to killing another person.  In both cases, a 
life, that is full of possibilities to perform good and to enjoy life, has been 
taken away and denied.  The act of killing oneself or another person is against 
Nature's functioning, which is to create life and to promote joy in existence.
The violation of natural law will have consequences or bad karma in yourself, 
the family or the environment.  The following adage would apply: you reap what 
you sow.

John, I don't see how the principle of ends not justifying means fits in this 
situation. The person is taking their own life, probably to avoid unnecessary 
suffering. What is morally wrong about that, in your view?

 Share,
The correct answer is that one should follow one's conscience to the best of 
his or her ability.  But one should follow the principle that the end does not 
justify the means.  IMO, ending one's own life through suicide is not following 
the principle above.

 Share,
I sympathize with your step Dad's suffering.  My mother also had a very painful 
and difficult death.  It is not easy to follow a moral act and, as humans, we 
should be able to make such choices.  But one has to be mindful of performing 
acts that do not violate natural laws.
If we violate natural laws, IMO the law of karma will take effect and could 
detrimentally affect our families and society that allow violence or suicide to 
occur.

John, when I think about how awful were the last 3 years of my step Dad's life, 
and more than once he expressed the wish to be dead, I think suicide is 
sometimes the right thing to do. I think unnecessary suffering is morally 
wrong.

 Bhairitu,
You've raised a good question.  But it is considered a higher principle that 
the end does not justify the means.  In other words, one must act licitly to 
make a moral act.  You cannot kill another person or group of persons in order 
to obtain political power--which we can see the evil effects that are happening 
in Iraq and Syria.  Similarly, the same principle applies to taking one's own 
life.
