Brodic discusses the moral issue of acceptance of suicide. He states that “the Christians’ endorsement of the right to refuse “extraordinary” treatment & to effective pain control counter two of the major arguements for the necessity of suicide. Christians should not endorse suicide because it contradicts a relationality of affirmation of those left behind. One could never be certain that this devaluation of the other would not have devastating effects.” (NBB)
