Not including people with deathly illnesses or with dibilitating and painful health issues.
I believe that people in emotional and psychological pain be allowed to commit suicide and that actions to stop them via the government and health officials is wrong.
I believe that intervention by friends and family to seek help because of the family's own emotional reasons (ex: they will miss the suicidal person and be affected by such
a situation) is wrong and should not be thrust upon the person as reasons to avoid what they believe is the solution to their problems.
Here are some quotes from great thinkers on the subject:
> They tell us that Suicide is the greatest piece of Cowardice...
That Suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in this world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.
> - Arthur Schopenhauer
Whereas, I reject such philosophical arguments like this:
> He who contemplates suicide should ask himself whether his action can be consistent with the idea of humanity as an end in itself.
> - Kant
