    U may think that it takes courage to jump but it takes even more courage to walk away and not to do it.

    To me suicide is the greatest sin....juz my 2cents.

    It's spelt as euthanasia, btw. To digress from this thread a little, euthanasia is also a pretty controversial topic.

    Hmm... judgement, judgement....

    Think of this situation... you suffer from a terminal illness. Each day, the pain is getting more and more excruciating. The hospital bills are getting higher and higher. Doctors give up and tell you that soon you'll need machines to keep you alive (at a cost, a higher one, of course). Your bank balance dries up. Your family, your loved ones, are paying your hospital bills. Some of them lose their jobs because they take too many day offs taking care of you. Their bank balance dry up as well. In a desperate attempt to keep you alive, your mother/sister/wife/fiancee/daughter has to become a prostitute, your father/son/brother is in prison after getting caught of robbery (to get money to pay for your hospital bill). You lose your flat because you haven't paid your monthly installment for over 6 months already. All your friends avoid you.

    Now what do you do?

    I had a close friend who was in such a scenario just about a year ago, lest the prostitue and robbery part. His dad was conned while trying to search for a cure for his son.

    Today, miraculously, he has recovered and leading a better life.
