Dealing With Grief and Loss - How to Mend a Broken Heart

A Critical Assessment of Euthanasia

The question of whether, say, a man should have the right to take away his life granted pain and suffering have overcome him is a very important question today.

This matter would have been laid to rest had it not been that it strikes at the heart of law, key matters of health, and morality.

Suicide - An Eternal Pain

Suicide is the one form of death that has quite a stigma attached to it. It brings with it a feeling of shame and betrayal.
