On health and suicide

Many people believe that suicide is wrong. (Fortunately, the grey area on that is growing…but that’s not the point of today’s post.)

Many religions profess that killing—oneself or others—is wrong.

So here’s my question: why does the timeline matter?

I don’t hear people speaking out against American health habits as a pro-life argument.

But if you consistently eat a lousy diet—or a good diet but way too much of it—you’re killing yourself.

If you don’t exercise at all—whether that’s exercise outright or just have active days—you’re killing yourself.

Smoking and excessive drinking are slow suicide.

Why is it socially (or religiously) acceptable to kill yourself slowly but not quickly?
