  • Welcome to Sanctioned Suicide, a pro-choice forum for the discussion of mental illness, suicide, and the moral implications of the act itself. We do not encourage or aid suicide, the information offered is for educational purposes only. For more information read our FAQ.
    For immediate help, consider calling the Samaritan's hotline: (877) 870-4673. Be aware they may call emergency services if they believe you are at imminent risk of death. We also have a recovery subforum if you wish to get support.

Just started reading the PPH and it traces our reaction to suicide and euthanasia back to...…….. Religion. Suicide was actually considered to be responsible in various countries, predominately Greece and surrounding civilisations.

Hopefully we are reverting back to a time when taking your own life is not seen as some selfish act of a mentally disturbed person, but the actions of rational people who just want control over their own demise.

Is crazy how fucked up most religions (like Christianity) actually are, but it's still regarded as some sort of a "moral" thing. Fuck sanctity of life dogma, life is a neutral thing at best, contingent on its contents. An evil and an absurdity at worst. I can't fathom literary forcing people to suffer. Its beyond me honestly.

Yeah actually the bible doesn't condemn suicide. Judas doesn't count because he betrayed Jesus, and thou shalt not kill was actually thou shalt not murder. It's wasn't until later on that religious leaders got together and made it a sin. But it's not bibical.
