Selfish to ctb at this time?

  • Welcome to Sanctioned Suicide, a pro-choice forum for the discussion of mental illness, suicide, and the moral implications of the act itself. This is not a pro-suicide site. We do not encourage or aid suicide, and the information offered is for educational purposes only. Read our rules and FAQ for more information. We also offer a recovery subforum if you wish to get support.

    You can close this box by clicking the top right "X".

  • There's a new bill going through the US Congress that will allow the US government to scan your online messages and emails. We feel it's important for our members to be informed of threats to free speech and the EARN IT Act, if passed into law, it could be used to take down smaller platforms or websites with little or no reason including this website. This is an obvious overreach by the US government that already abuses it power as is and it shouldn't stand.

Society always teach that suicide is selfish. But I'm against that kind of thinking, since some people doesn't understand the suffering of others. And will not being ashamed of our reasons. Perhaps someone are more comprehensive or supportive with terminal illness, and another reasons are "condemnable" or unjustified, but any human being is owner of their soul. I don't encourage to do it, because it's a crime, I'm only questioning the taboo around it.

See this is where I am confused, in some ways I believe it is as if you fail you are taking up a bed, but on the other hand this could be the best time as people are so wrapped up in this covid-19 that normal suicides will fall under the radar.
I also think method could potentially make CTB at this time harder. Depending where in the world you are and how locked down your country is

Would you consider it selfish to attempt suicide at this time, considering the fact that the hospitals are overwhelmed with people dying "uncontrollably" due to covit-19?
Depends, if your friends and family really need you then it could be considered selfish. But that depends on how much your suffering.

Do they really need us though?
Depends, there is no one size fits all. It's all relative to how much we are suffering and how much they would suffer without us. If there are children involved in that's the worst case senerio.
