Without judgment, "Why Suicide?" offers lucid, thoughtful, and comprehensive answers to hundreds of questions about this complex and painful issue, examining the facts and figures and myths and rumours, shedding much-needed light on all aspects of suicide. Offering frank insight on everything you've always wanted - and needed - to know about suicide, attempted suicide, and assisted suicide, including: What is the impact of a suicide on families? Who is most likely to take his or her life? What are some of the most common myths about suicide? What does the Bible say about suicide? Is it against the law to help someone kill himself? Do life insurance issues have anything to do with why people don't want suicide to be the official cause of death?
