Why are so many people in the United States against suicide?

If someone wants to end their life why can't it be their decision instead of other people making the decision for them?

    I think most societies are against suicide in general. I mean, I don't think your question should be political. I think it should be philosophical. To quote Camus "There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide." I would check out the Wikipedia page about Philosophical inquiries on Suicide, and make a decision yourself on what stance you lean towards and then compare that to the general public of the USA.

    some people value life as a gift from God, even when things get too hard, and would never think to intentionally end their life.

    Who’s going to clean up your corpse? That’s a problem. Think about everyone else too. If you ask someone else to do it for you, that’d be a problem too.

      Nobody has to clean it up. It can just lay there and rot over time. Eventually it will all be gone.
