  • Means Of Health Care
    1,930 words
    Living to die, or is it dying to live. Suicide, the intentional act of killing oneself. "Britain abolished punishment for attempted suicide in 1961, and by the early 1990's only two US states still listed suicide as a crime (Columbia Encyclopedia) ". The Japanese have long held to practice called Hara-Kiri, another form of suicide. Most religions look down on this practice because it goes against their core values. As we examine the reasoning behind suicide, can we make a decision of whether it ...
  • Stance Against Assisted Suicide
    1,314 words
    Should assisted suicide become totally legal in the U.S. Well, that is the question that Mr. Stephen Carter seems to brutally review in his article Rush to a Lethal Judgement, where it appears that he takes a stance against assisted suicide. He makes a very week argument though, and I feel he would fail at convincing most anyone. His thoughts are well organized, but he fails to really take a side on the debate until the very end and at that point it is no longer very useful. Carter starts the ar...
  • Normative Buddhist Stance On Suicide Channa
    6,349 words
    Buddhi ms and Suicide In his 1983 paper 'The 'Suicide' Problem in the Paali Canon,' Martin Wiltshire wrote: 'The topic of suicide has been chosen not only for its intrinsic factual and historical interest but because it spotlights certain key issues in the field of Buddhist ethics and doctrine. ' [1] I think Wiltshire was right to identify suicide as an important issue in Buddhist ethics: [2] it raises basic questions about autonomy and the value of human life, and plays a pivotal role in relate...
  • Intimate Partner Killings
    1,097 words
    After I read the chapter, all I could say is the world's really strange-maybe gone mad. First-off, it's pretty disturbing when you think that love could actually be a key to homicide-that "love" itself could be the very root of motives for murder. Whenever I see the news on TV about intimate or family-related homicides, it awes me and makes me wonder how could they do such a thing. But anyway, I've observed that some do it to hide an affair from the spouse, some are for money, others are for aut...
  • Suicide Cases
    525 words
    In the case Queen versus Dudley and Stephens the criticism that is most applicable is the third one about moral inconsistencies in the law. In this case the law teaches us that, in a situation such as the one Dudley and Stephens found themselves in, it is more moral to sacrifice our lives than to preserve it. Lord Coleridge confesses that 'we are often compelled to set [moral] standards we cannot ourselves satisfy'. However, in other cases such as assisted suicide cases where moral inconsistency...
  • Case In Jail Suicides
    1,532 words
    The United States is plagued by a countless number of social dilemmas. Although not in constant public scrutiny, suicide is a serious problem which has seemed to have lost importance. When suicide is coupled with arrest and incarceration it becomes an increasingly complex situation. In fact, research indicates that the jail suicide rate ranges from 2.5 to 13 times greater than the rate of the general population (Winkler 1992). Motivation, prediction, and prevention of suicidal behavior are gross...
  • Suicide At Higher Rates
    1,605 words
    Despite the appearance of gradual development among Emile Durkheim's works, they might as well be considered as a single train of unified thoughts. When one contemplates his four greatest works, there lies the methodology and belief that all of our characteristics beyond that of the physiological aspect originated from, or are greatly influenced by society. This conviction is perhaps best illustrated in The Division of Labor in Society, wherein Durkheim chooses to focus on the method of interact...
