So someone should contine a soul-destroying, terribly unhappy existence just so they don't hurt anyone else?

If someone wants to die let them, they shouldn't be bound to life out of obligation.

I think it's selfish for a family to want to keep someone alive for their own benefit.

I've worked in the UK a few times and am well aware of your breakfast shows and daily "news" tabloids, w/ splashy headlines and Page 3 girls. The prior stodgy and reserved image I had of the British quickly flew out the window.

if he was mentally unwell then i'd imagine that was the reason he killed his family.

is it? the whole notion of suicide revolves around a person who feels so depressed that they feel the world is better off without them, as well as them being better off without the world. people who commit suicide often think that their loved ones are better off without them, and that their very existence is what causes problems in other peoples' lives. misguided, sure, but selfish, no. the ability to think straight is hugely impaired, and as anyone who has suffered from depression knows, you aren't yourself any longer. you are ill, and that illness is what causes you to act in certain ways. i'm not saying that some suicides aren't carried out by selfish people, but i'd never equate suicide with selfishness in general.

If he'd waited a few more days, maybe the debate would have perked him up.

^ Too True!

Also, suicide can seem selfish, ie the act can seem selfish BUT research shows the reason a lot of people kill themselves is because they feel they are a burden on their family.... in their warped mind a lot of them feel they are doing it for the love of their family not themselves. I use to think it was selfish too....... that was until pregnancy induced Major Depression. I can honestly say for some it has absolutely NOTHING to do with self absorption or selfishness. Everyone goes through depression every now and again. Please don't confuse 'situational' depression which almost everyone suffers from at some point in their life and 'clinical' depression. They are not the same animal.

Such a shame that these right wingers can be so crazy as to do something terrible like that.

I really hope you have a seat on the first trip to colonize the moon, because there seems to be nothing on this Earth that you don't have a problem with.
