Suicide is only selfish because modern Western society (based in Judeo-Christian morals) has deemed it so. Other cultures deem suicide as acceptable for various reasons. If I was to develop an incurable, fatal disease then it is my right to chose to end my life on my terms. It is, after all, my life. It doesn't belong to anyone else and I would end my life, regardless of what society or the law says.All humans have a breaking point. They have a point that they can reach and say enough, not one step more. When one reaches that point, is it not more humane to let them end their existence if that is their choice? What right does society have to deny them that right? The blanket answer about suicide being bad and selfish is naive at best.
