Undoubtedly there are many cases of perfectly justifiable
suicide — cases in which not to end life would be a mistake,
sometimes almost a crime.
As to the necessity of death, each must decide for himself.
And if a man honestly decides that death is best — best for him
and others — and acts upon the decision, why should he be blamed?
Robert Green Ingersoll – “Is Suicide a Sin?” (1894)
