Although I do believe
in the "right" to commit suicide,
it doesn't mean that I think we should exercise that right.
Having the "right" to do it does not mean
it is ultimately the right thing to do.
I think we should use every rationale we can
any suicide decisions or attempts we might make.
In these discussions, I wish to exclude the
terminally ill !
And, yes, I know - many who are suicidal believe they are terminally ill, and so
did I - but here, the depressed are not defined
as terminally ill.
