What do you think about suicide do you think it's wrong.
It's not a good thing it hurts but you should always try to find a way out of them feeling.

I want to make sure that we don't confuse with euthanasia, because I don't oppose that.

There is one very well known quote that goes like this "Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem".
I might be naive, but I don't believe mental illnesses are terminal, I believe can all be cured if given the right treatment and lots of time. I do realize suicidal thoughts can be convincing for people dealing with problems, however I don't think they are rational thoughts, I don't think it is a logical solution, I do think it is a cry for help.

I believe that suicide is just someone who can't keep going someone who has gone throw hell an needs someone to be there for them but feels as if no one is some one who is crying for help but has no one I lost my older sister by suicide and I've self harmed before and it doesn't end well.
When you feel like doing suicide you don't really think about what it will do to every one around you just do it and if you know some one who isn't okay be there for them because you never know what they may be going throw.

I'm not really sure what we're debating here, but I don't really oppose anything you say. Of course we should be there for anyone who might need it, however I don't think suicide is anything we should accept is happening, we should fix the problems making people wanting to end their lives. We should never accept suicide.
