Legality and ethics aside (regardless of your views on rights and self-ownership), do you believe deliberate self-harm is an immoral act?

I actually had this convo last night. I think it's sad that many churches teach that those who commit suicide go to hell. They don't know what that person has been thru or what drove them to it. They need compassion & help not judgement or punishment

No, I think it is sad but I do not think it is immoral. It usually means that the person is struggling and may be in serious need of help or guidance of some sort.

Nope. My body, my decision.

In and of itself, no. If you're harming others indirectly through harming yourself, then yes, it's obviously not the best choice to be making -- but I still wouldn't place blame on the individual over it.
