It also makes it easier to commit suicide the next time around. Before you know 
it, you're in a cycle of suicide at the drop of a hat. It's an impression that 
will come back to haunt you life after life..

     I recall Charlie Lutes take on the subject that though suicide is frowned 
on in the yogic traditions he could see doing when facing prolonged agony like 
from a slow  death by cancer.  In the eastern traditions including Buddhism 
they believe that if you commit suicide you get stuck in some "middle world". 
 
 The published suicide mantra is of the maran class and is also an Agni mantra.

     John and turq, what got me rethinking all this is that idea of life full 
of possibilities to enjoy. Is it healthy to give up on that? Is it honoring, 
turq of life itself to give up on the possibility of joy and love? And turq, is 
not suicide also often driven by FEAR? Since you're using presence of fear as a 
measuring stick.
  
  At this moment I'm thinking that what's healthiest is to act from a place of 
embodied settledness rather than fear. And we can't really predict what action 
might thus result. And can we really legislate about people's states of being?!

doing what *we* say to do during your life so that Bad Things don't happen  to 
you after your death."

  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?

  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.

  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.

       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.
