The devaluing of any life, even the unseen baby in the womb, is a devaluing of all life. One cannot harm a part of himself, without harming the whole. The murderous hatred of life is eventually turned upon its self—and seen as a peaceful release and solution to all earthly problems. Suicide (self-murder) is not different in character than murder of another—we do not have authority to take any life, not even our own. That is to play God. This satanic sin also gives precious little time to hear the Word and repentant, if successful. Death means judgment and answering for sins, not escape from guilt –ed.
