In Secret, Seniors Discuss ‘Rational Suicide’
The concept of rational suicide is highly controversial; it runs counter to many societal norms, religious and moral convictions and the efforts of suicide prevention workers who contend that every life is worth saving.

“The concern that I have at a social level is if we all agree that killing yourself is an acceptable, appropriate way to go, then there becomes a social norm around that, and it becomes easier to do, more common,” said Dr. Yeates Conwell, a psychiatrist specializing in geriatrics at the University of Rochester and a leading expert in elderly suicide. That’s particularly dangerous with older adults because of widespread ageist attitudes, he said.

As a society, we have a responsibility to care for people as they age, Conwell argued. Promoting rational suicide “creates the risk of a sense of obligation for older people to use that method rather than advocate for better care that ...

The Quiet Christian wrote:
Note the use of language like "societal norm" rather than an appeal to ethical standards or another sense of right-vs-wrong. This says very strongly that we as a collective entity are our own god.
In contrast, I've always been fascinated by how people in the earlier parts of the Bible, Genesis and Job, knew what was right before the Law was given to Moses. Before that Law was written on stone tablets or otherwise recorded by Moses, the Law appears to have been written on the hearts of men like Noah, Job, and Abraham. While they obviously failed to keep it, needing Christ as much as I do, their connection to the Lord, close proximity timewise to Creation and the Flood providing a kind of inertia, something had them following the Law before it was written.
But one need only look to the Lord's dealing with Cain and Noahic covenant to find how long in human history that the Lord has specifically addressed murder and its deep sinfulness.
Regarding who is God, "Know ye that even the Lord is God; he hath made us, and not we ourselves: we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture." - Psalm 100:3
Well said! I look at this way; my life belongs to my Lord and I do not have authority to end it; only He does.
