It's an argumentative paragraph written to the question: “Is it moral to commit suicide?” To kill oneself is a decision which people make that defines their previous livelihood. It is essential to realize that suicide is a morally acceptable choice. To the most basic core, people of all differences experience the right to live; in contrast, should it not, also be their right to die? To emphasize, there is often the case of the terminally ill. Such patients have suffered for an extended period of time, and generally reach a point of acceptance in their death. Unfortunately, due to laws against suicide and assisted suicide, it is difficult for those of terminal illness to take the final step into their own hands. However, such patients deserve the right to end their lives sooner, if they wish. There are logical reasonings for the desire to suicide, such as financial cost, limit to their total suffering, and possibly giving up their place to another patient in need. Another notion example to consider is a person who feels unfulfilled in life and wants to end their own desperation. Though measures should proceed to give the person proper therapy and a better sense of control, a person should be able to commit suicide without moral conviction, if they have essentially already “given up” on themselves. Because people are merely cogs in society's machine and if they themselves believe they are no longer productive toward it's inner workings, they should merely proceed by ridding the world of the external body. In this sense, it is more morally acceptable to kill oneself, rather than continuing living what feels like a meaningless existent. Objectively, however, people live for reasons aside from their role in a productive society, and this piece may present people with moral conviction at offing themselves. Yet, suicide by nature is morally permissible in its most basic nature. Do you think my teacher will become overly concerned if she reads this??
