IDLE CHAT ON SUICIDE

A group of seniors was discussing birth and death one morning.
“We know when we are born but we do not know when we die!” the eldest of them remarked. All the others agreed. “But I’ve never asked to be born and yet I am here! I can do nothing about it! It is against my wish and choice to be born!” said one of them while the others laughed.
Since growing old is such a painful process, why don’t we be given the choice to end life itself?
Now the whole discussion turned to “Suicide”! Is it right or wrong to kill oneself?
The moral law does not permit one to commit suicide. Does any religion permit one to kill oneself? If yes, why is it so? If no, why not?
