One response to “Excellent Free Resource on the Ethics of Suicide

  1. The basic concept of “self ownership” allows for the individual deciding to “destroy themselves” through suicide. The government policies against suicide indicate that the “State” sees the individual as “property”. Property not being allowed to destroy itself (thus no longer being of service to the State). Then there is also the aspect that the individual who commits suicide may impose certain “costs” to the State that it would prefer to avoid.
