I think the answer to this question is EXTREMELY simple, and it's the same one I gave to a previous very similar question. It ALL boils down to this:
It's wrong because everyone (or most people) think and believe that everybody else in the world thinks (or should think and feel) identically to the way they themselves think everything is within their own minds, based on THEIR OWN life experiences.
In other words, anyone who is having a good time, very successful with life, or happened to get through a tough situation..etc. AUTOMATICALLY ASSUMES and believes that every other person in the world has no reason to feel down or helpless - based purely on the fact that they themselves don't see or understand a problem someone else is going through, or because they feel that it's "not that big of a deal" and hold the mentality; "if I could get through it, then everybody in the world should also be able to handle it as well".
I understand that it's easy to accuse everyone else of being selfish for doing anything that's not in alignment to what you believe because you feel like it's wrong or unnecessary, but the truth is we are ALL selfish, including those who accuse everyone else but themselves. This is why everything from superficial rules, laws, commandments, man made religions, rules of society, ...etc. (that we all fall for and believe) which creates all this unnecessary trouble even exist in the first place.
Anything a person does that someone else doesn't understand or like for whatever reasoning can be considered "wrong", or a taboo to them. That's just the way it is.
It's a superficial chosen belief / rule, or an attempt to eliminate anything that may emotionally or physically hurt ourselves from happening. We all do it - we'd ALL prefer everyone else to live in pain, emptiness, and suffering and not hurt themselves - just so WE wouldn't have to suffer or have an interruption to our stream of happiness or good fortune..etc. (unless, of course, the person who wanted to die was so "out of it" and useless to us that it would be more convenient for us if that someone in particular died, and then we rationalize in our minds that "I thuought it was better for them that they passed on"..)
..Then just wait until the person who's on their high horse, who believe's "it's all good, all the time" runs into an unbearably tough situation that gives them that intense gut feeling of hurt, pain, worthlessness, & emptiness, and ALL THE SUDDEN suicide will become "ok" and will no longer be a taboo to that person anymore.
Bottom line: We don't want anyone to die, unless it's convenient for us. "F*ck how they feel" is the mentality that's being sugarcoated and disguised here, PLAIN & SIMPLE.
I know the truth hurts, but what the heck, I'm selfish, too, and I wanted to point it out, so that's exactly what I did - because pointing it out satisfied ME. This is what I choose to believe. Therefore, EVERYBODY must agree and act accordingly!
